Music Theory Lessons
Music theory is helpful in understanding music on a
deeper level than just playing the notes and chords.
If the student wishes to learn theory, our teachers
are prepared. Theory includes many aspects of music
such as understanding, memorizing and applying
scales, key signatures, and the circle of fifths to
his/her repertoire and/or original compositions.
Ear training may also be incorporated into the
program if the student wishes. Ear training is the
development of the student's ability to listen and
recognize what s/he hears. Students may learn to
play and sing above the notes s/he plays and/or to
Improvisation is extemporaneous composition. The
more advanced student can learn to play original
music based on existing music or on a chord
progression and/or melody. Jazz is the most well
known genre in which improvisation is employed.
Students of music may at any time wish to compose
their own original music. Our teachers are
supportive of the student's desire to compose.
Depending on the student's level and goals, we can
assign the appropriate composition teacher if in
fact a different teacher is required other than the
student's instrumental teacher.
