Music Theory 101
Theory 101 will introduce the world of basic music theory while we play instruments in class. We will cover the circle of fifths, scales, & chord composition, and we’ll analyze tunes and songs brought in by the class. This is a fun, relaxed, and low-pressure way to add some insight into, and enhance, your playing. The class will hold mini-sessions each class period for playing together and simple improv.
