In this course, students study the foundational symbols needed to read a syllabic hymn in Byzantine notation. Students will study interval symbols, qualitative symbols, rhythm symbols, and symbols that indicate the mode and scale. Students will study Heirmologic hymns in the Diatonic Modes on parallagi as they learn the symbols.
