Our "Music Theory" program is a training and an exercise of how music is written and played. The program covers the study of pitch, scales & modes, rhythm, chord structure, melody, harmony, texture, timbre, expressive qualities, form/structure...etc. Then with this knowledge the student moves to the "Fundamentals of Song Writing" with the end result of the musical piece being performed.
