MUSIC THEORY

CLASSES 

Music Theory is an important part of the foundation for any musician. Like language, music theory enables us to understand the structure and meaning behind a musical composition. The purpose of learning music theory is to prepare you to compose or perform a piece of music.

WHY LEARN MUSIC THEORY? 

A clear understanding of how the musical piece is constructed helps us learn faster, much like how knowing a street map enables us to drive more efficiently. With knowledge of tonal syntax from our music theory studies, we gain the ability to predict logical chord progressions, which allows us to improvise music that sounds authentic, logical, and cohesive. 

We developed a comprehensive curriculum for aspiring musicians that will complement their major lessons and level up their skills. Unlike Individual Music Theory Lessons, these classes are designed for small groups of students 7+ years old.

 All lectures and materials are provided via an online platform, so you'll easily access them from the comfort of your home.
 

 In our small group setting, teachers have the ability and the resources to spend extra time on learning materials and feedback. 
 

 Students who successfully complete their Music Theory class will receive a Certificate of Completion of their level.

Having a strong understanding of music theory is a vital skill for all musicians, regardless of age or experience. Studying music theory gives students a more holistic understanding of the music they are learning, and is the ultimate catalyst for developing musicians to become independent learners and masters of their own progress. Level 3 students will tackle proper music notation, transposition, listening skills, and analysis, writing their own melodies, and more!
