What Will You Learn?

Music exists, first and foremost, in the soul, mind and body. It is something we feel before we understand it. Your introduction to the wonderful world of music theory, this course will help you to decipher the language used to describe the intoxicating combination of art and science that is music.

You’ll be guided through the fundamental underpinnings of modern western music theory and the building blocks used to create melodies and chords, leaving you well-prepared to tackle any piece that you might encounter in your development as a musician.

You’ll learn the 12 notes of the musical alphabet, be able to differentiate between the two systems that exist for writing music in treble and bass clefs, understand the rhythmic values of notes and discover many rhythmic concepts.

You’ll explore the major and natural minor scales, learn how to write both generic and specific intervals on the stave, and become familiar with the diatonic triads of major and minor keys.

The course provides a detailed analysis of the role played by seventh chords in western music theory, how to construct major seventh, minor seventh and dominant seventh chords, and the role of seventh chords in major and minor scales.

An introduction to the concept of modes in western music theory is also included.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Learn how to read music and interpret notes and intervals
  • Become familiar with the major and minor scales
  • Understand the diatonic triads of major and minor keys
  • Explore the role played by seventh chords
  • Become familiar with the concept of modes

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma.
