Music Theory Fundamentals–Fall 2022


You’ve arrived at the course website for Mr. Stephen Gomez’s section of Music Theory Fundamentals (MUSTH 101) at Hunter College, CUNY for the Fall 2022 semester. Our class meetings are all in-person (Hunter North Room 407), but this site is your online “home base” for all things music theory this term. I greatly look forward to working with you all and cultivating skills in reading and writing music notation as well as exploring different ways of thinking about music from a variety of times and places.

The best way to get in touch with me is over email at sgomez@gradcenter.cuny.edu. Please contact me at any point for help, questions, or comments about class!

Navigating this site

Use the tabs in the menu at the top of this site to access different pages. We are currently on the “Home” page. More details about the course design, topics, and policies can be found on the Syllabus page. The Course Schedule page lists the dates we meet as a class, due dates for assignments and readings, and topics by date. (NOTE: the course schedule is subject to change; I will update it on this site as necessary.) The course textbooks, which are free and openly-accessible online resources, are available via links on the Readings page. All instructions and files for assignments will appear under the Assignments tab, and you can find the blog posts that you and your peers write throughout the semester by clicking the Posts tab. Finally, for extra course files and fun music resources, go to the Files and Resources page.

This course includes Open Educational Resources (OER), which are entirely cost-free and accessible online. Developed in the Open Knowledge Fellowship at The Graduate Center’s Mina Rees Library, this work is made possible by state grant funding through the Office of Library Services.
