Taught in a spirit of collaborative learning and fun, weekly class sessions explore and reinforce a variety of musical concepts, including: note-reading the treble and bass clefs; identifying intervals on the staff and by ear; major and minor scales and chords; and basic rhythm and meter. Weekly listening examples, musical games, and exploratory group activities contribute to a varied and engaging experience with the dual goal of heightening students’ musical enjoyment, and accelerating their progress in private instrumental lessons.

About Music Theory & Composition Classes

Music Theory & Composition classes are recommended for all students beginning and continuing in private lessons. Theory classes closely investigate the inner workings of music as a language, helping students to reinforce essential musical skills and concepts such as note and rhythm reading, intervals, scales, harmony, and ear training.
