Music Theory & Aural Training

Understanding music theory is a very important part of studying music, and will deepen each student’s understanding of his/her instrument and repertoire, thus making him/her a more effective and conscientious performer. Also, taking part in a Music Theory class would allow more time to focus on one’s discipline during his/her private lesson.


The Music Theory class would cover the following areas:


  Beat & Rhythm

·      Identifying note values and names, reading/performing and writing

        ♪  Pitch & Melody

·      Identifying pitch names (Alphabet and Solfege), reading and writing, phrasing and form

        ♪  Harmony

·      Recognizing and writing intervals, chords and progressions, and basic composition rules and techniques 

        ♪  Music Symbols & Vocabulary

        ♪  Aural (Ear) Training

·      Identifying and performing intervals, major/minor chords, chord progressions, & short melodies


Classes will be held for 45 minutes, one time per week, with a minimum of 2 students per group. Groups will be assembled according to the exam level for which the student wishes to prepare, and/or the student’s age. Optionally, a student may wish to study Music Theory individually, which will allow the student to move at his/her own pace.
