Oh no? Theory! 🙂
Well you did click here, so at least you are not afraid of this word, after all it is just that – a word with 6 letters.

But anyway, what is theory actually? Theory is just ideas musicians before us have found to be cool, which they catalogued for us to learn faster instead of spending time discovering these ideas ourselves. Moreover, why is theory very useful irrelevant of what instrument one plays?
Well the answer is simple – it helps us listen to others & our own ideas better & to find them on our instrument (an often forgotten fact is that music is NOT a visual art but a listening art, which explains why theory is NOT sight-reading – one can know all the theory but not know how to read a note).

Convinced? I run 2 courses in music theory/harmony ….

  1. Know It Hear It! – practical hands-on theory & ear-training to help find the melodies in your head/ in your fave songs onto your instrument! This is a group course that does not involve sight-reading.
  2. Music Theory Graded Exams helps you prepare for popular/classic theory exams. This can be taken in group or alone (at mine, at yours or online). This course involves sight-reading.

 

Eligible for : Anyone studying any instrument!
Prerequisites : A Love for Music
Suggested Daily Practice  : depends on grade
Level : Beginners to Advanced
