Practical Theory for Guitarists will equip students with the skills to better understand, interpret, compose, improvise, and play music through the study and creative application of music theory. The progressive curriculum will cover topics such as interval identification, scales, chord cadences and chord progressions, ear training, and fretboard logic. These elements will be examined in detail through examples and exercises, and also as each pertains to students' own musical projects.
This class is designed to assist students in fulfilling the theory requirements of the BMS Guitar Certificate Program. Students should begin in Level I, but may begin in a higher level with permission from the teacher.
