音樂專題討論: Introduction to Schenkerian Analysis

Dear students,

It is a good new that Leung Sir Music Center is going to offer a new course on advance music analysis.

Please leave down your contact email or phone if you are interested in. Further information about this course, please don't hesitate to email Leung Sir (theorydavid@yahoo.com.hk)

Have you ever heard of Schenkerian Analysis? This is a very useful analytical theory to help us to understand the tonal structure as well as the way of composing out of tonal musical works. Such theory is so famous that performers, as well as composers and piano teachers are eager to learn. LeungSir believes that no private music sectors will offer such course.

Leung Sir will tailor this theory to suitable students of different levels so that they can understand and make use of it according to their needs.

The whole course will include the following topics:

1. Brief introduction to Schenkerian Analysis

2. Melody and Counterpoint

3. Bass Linge and Harmonic Structure

4. Linear techniques

5. Tonal Strucutre

6. Techniques of Melodic Prolongation

7. Some Basic of Fundamental Structures

8. Some Common Tonal Patterns

9. Introduction to Graphic Notation

10. Set Pieces Discussion

Students should possess qualified Harmony knowledge in order to fully assimilate the concept of this theory.

Number of lessons: 10

Date : August 10 2011 (Wednesday)
Time: 7:45pm to 10:00pm

Students : 6-8

(All materials will be provided)

對學生果然係一個好極好的消息!我記得當年是在讀master 時才有機會學習 Schenkerian Analysis,是一個很有實效的音樂分析取向!亦的確我沒有在其他的私人機構看到過有同樣的課程!

Leung Sir 肯為學生開辦這實效而不算流行的課程,實在是學生之福!

Thank for your encouragement. It is rather difficult to teach such course. HK Students usually only want to get a diploma, more than that of acquiring new knowledge and skill.

Frankly, this course is almost suspended due to insufficient enrollment (even cannot make 5 students). Fortunately, an old friend student called me and we can make it seven.

I am really afraid that I will lose the most valuable knowledge that I acquired in those postgraduate study years in the future, after numerous teachings of the low level examination-focus classes.
