For counterpoint courses, a degree in harmony with a minimum grade of 7.50 “very good” is a prerequisite. Teaching music in the Renaissance (tropical counterpoint) and baroque (tonal counterpoint).
In the tropical counterpoint, writing is taught up to an octave chorus. The scales we use are the Ionic, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolidian and Aeolian modes. Antistatic polyphony is the goal for the student who has the ability to write up to eight independent voices with imitation that coexist in a work giving the renaissance style. In the tropical counterpoint we learn to write in various forms of the baroque era such as the pasakalia, the canon, etc. with combinations of instruments of the symphonic orchestra in the tonal system.
Compulsory courses: history, morphology, organology, practical training and piano
