A basic knowledge of music theory is one of the most important tools a musician can have, whether you play an instrument or want to compose your own music. This class for beginners will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of music. Using a series of simple exercises, we’ll begin with how to read music, note values, pitch, melody, rhythm (simple and complex), and major and minor scales, and progress to more complex subjects, such as clefs, intervals, keys and key signatures, chords and chord progression, phrases, harmony, accompaniments, counterpoint, forms of composition, and ear-training.

  • NOTE  No prior knowledge of music is necessary. We will begin with how to read music.
