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 will begin with how to read music: pitch, clefs, note values and rhythm (simple and complex); and progress to more complex subjects such as: major and minor scales, key signatures, intervals, chords, chord progression, counterpoint, and musical form.
