It is important for all music students to at least have a basic understanding of music theory....note reading, chords, scales, key signatures, etc. A more serious music student, especially one who plans to study music in college and/or perform professionally, needs an even deeper knowledge of music theory. Our 2-week music theory workshops are designed to meet the needs of all music students, from age 12 to adult.
Fundamental Music Theory Fundamental Music Theory is for the student who has not yet developed a complete knowledge of notes, rhythms, chords, scales, key signatures, etc. This is especially beneficial to the vocal and/or instrumental student who is only accustomed to reading from one staff and one note at a time. It is also helpful for the guitar student who wants to understand the chords and scale patterns better or the piano student who needs to strengthen their understanding of basic theory concepts.
Students must register by July 9th, and complete a music theory aptitude test (see below) to enable the instructor to structure the class to fit the needs of the students. (If you cannot open the file below, please contact the studio for assistance).
