How Music Works
Fall 2021: September 23-November 11
Are you just starting your vocal/instrumental journey? Or have you played or sung for years, but always wanted to better understand the music? Unlock the mysteries of music in this introduction to music theory. Topics include reading fluency (pitch/rhythm notation, pitch/rhythm reading), major/minor scale construction, triadic and seventh chord constructions, intervals, chord analysis, circle of fifths, basic chord progressions, and YOUR questions that you’ve always wanted answered. This class is designed for students with some practical understanding but no formal theory training – those with reading experience in one clef only, pianists and singers with minimal theory background, guitarists who read only tab, as well as those who want to brush up on the basics.
