Theory and Ear Training for Traditional Musicians

Level 2: Wednesdays 7-8:15 pm
Level 1: Thursdays 7-8:15 pm
Fall: September 16-November 5
Online via Zoom

This class will focus on improving the skills we all use when playing together in various situations. Training in music theory helps clarify the harmonic patterns underling the tunes, and helps accompanists make more informed chord choices. Ear training helps melody players increase their tune learning capacity, and the speed at which tunes can be learned. Taken together, these two approaches complement each other and can lead to more enjoyment and creativity when playing music with others.

This class has been expanded into two sections to accommodate interest:
Level 2 will meet Wednesdays
Level 1 will meet Thursdays
