MUS1012 Fundamentals of Music


Welcome to this research guide for Fundamentals of Music. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project.

Fundamentals of Music is a study of the value and function of music as an avenue of human expression and ministry within the church. Basic concepts of melody, musical scale systems, major and minor tonality, rhythm, and harmony are developed, along with the system of musical notation. Suggestions for the development of a music program in the church are given. The pastor and church music directors are equipped to provide leadership for a musical program that will be effective in helping to meet the spiritual needs of the people. Emphasis is given to the use of music to glorify God.

Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.
