Do you want to learn to play songs and compositions independently, by ear? Do you want to become a better improviser? Having trouble reading standard notation on the guitar? Do you want to get to know the fretboard better?

Join BMS guitar instructor Jussi Reijonen (M.M.) and learn to better understand the music that you hear, to play the music you see written down, and to create musical ideas of your own in this course covering intervals, major and minor scales, chord cadences and chord progressions, and discover the logic of music on the fretboard.

Over the course of the year, students will gain the skills to better understand, interpret, compose, improvise, & play music through the study of music theory. Young guitarists will gain essential skills and creatively apply concepts, such as interval identification, major and minor scales, chord cadences and chord progressions, ear training, and fretboard logic, to their own musical projects.
