Music Theory for Performers
Mondays 4-5 pm
Spring: February 1-May 10
Music theory illuminates the grammar of music. It examines the vocabulary of music—scales, keys, intervals, triads—and explores the principles underlying the interplay of these basic building blocks in a musical work. An accomplished composer wields these tools deftly and imaginatively. Music theory gives us an appreciation of the composer’s choices and strategies; it helps us to understand what makes music marvelous. This course is designed for students currently studying an instrument or voice, with at least two years of experience and note reading skills.
