Music theory is the mechanics of music — how music works and is put together. Whether you play an instrument, sing, compose or simply enjoy listening – music theory is a most valuable tool. This class introduces beginners to the fundamentals of music theory. Using a series of straightforward exercises, participants will gain the skills and knowledge to understand and apply the essential elements of music – rhythm, melody, and harmony. This includes writing and reading notes, rhythms, major and minor scales, intervals, triads and seventh chords. Participants will also develop listening skills/ear-training, keyboard skills, and sight-reading. Note: No prior background or knowledge in music is necessary — the course designed for teens and adults.
