Music Theory


The class is not only for children having a background in music and for those who have never played an instrument, but in particular for all those musicians who want to know more and better about the secrets hidden behind the sound.

What does it mean pitch? How is rhythm combined with notes? What is harmony? ¬†If you’re serious about learning music, you should know some¬†fundamental concepts.

Many students often view music theory as a chore, and some musicians wear their lack of music theory knowledge as a badge of honor. Do you want to be a musician? How do you want to understand the world of sounds if you don’t know how sounds actually work? It is like we would like to be medical doctors, without knowing anything about biology or anatomy.

So… now the big question:

What Is Music Theory?

Let’s find out. In music theory you will learn how music works, why certain note sounds better together and other not, why also dissonances are useful, how a piece can be prolonged but actually preserve a basic structure. As music theorist you would act like a coroner and a scientist at the same time. And like a detective,sometimes.

Music theory is very often something seen as abstract from the music.

We will learn music theory in a fun and practical way (learning by doing): rhythm and note reading/singing, basic of composition.
