Program : Theory of Music

Available in Studio and In Home

DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM

The Learn Theory of Music Program is designed for those who want to understand what it is that makes music so awesome!

Activity choices include:

  • Written exercises
  • Listening to examples
  • Analysis of Songs
  • other activities as required to achieve your goals

What will be learnt:

  • Basic understanding of reading music
  • Chords, Progressions and Harmony
  • Intervals
  • Scales and Keys
  • Form and Structure
  • Topics as needed to achieve your goals

Learning the Theory of Music means understanding all the various concepts of music which is a huge subject!

The more effort you put into reading, writing, analyzing and listening to music as you learn about the concepts, the easier and quicker you will understand the concepts.

So essentially the more time you spend the quicker the result.

As with learning an instrument, finding a regular time(s) to do your theory work each week will give you the best results.

It is usually necessary to purchase at least a workbook for the grade or level of theory being studied ( where exams are involved).

If you wish to learn general theory without exams, then your teacher will suggest a suitable book, which may include a workbook, manuscript, computer software or texts.

NB Theory book prices vary from $16 upwards.

Students are not required to have an instrument to study Theory, however as Music is about sound, having an instrument available whilst learning about Theory is extremely logical and helpful.

When choosing your Theory teacher, it is not essential for their instrument to be the same as yours, although it can be helpful. If that concerns you and you cannot find a local theory teacher, then consider an online/skype type lesson with your preferred teacher.

Please visit Wendy's online shop for available instruments to purchase
