Description: A practical guide to the understanding and the use of music theory in the creation and playing of songs.
Prerequisite: No experience necessary
What Students will Leave this class having learned:
Students will leave this class hopefully having learned the basics of how music operates in terms the 7 note major scale as well as the 7 modes contained therein. They should also have gained an understanding of the why and wherefore of basic chord formation, and alterations as well as the relationships of various chords to one another.
Tunes: songs of the students choosing maybe used to examine their construction and to discuss why they have the effect they do.
Technique: The class will be taught in plain English; seeking to avoid much of the highly technical and sometimes confusing terminology present in other courses on music theory. If the students so desires, that information can be accessed by them at a later date without affecting what they have learned in class.
