DESCRIPTION

Music theory is the science of music.

In our class we will demystify the magic of music through ear training, sight singing, rhythmic studies and other fun activities designed to help the students' musicianship and comprehension of music's basic elements: melody, harmony and rhythm.  This class is designed to be flexible so that students can “drop-in” for topics that they need to learn or improve their skills in.
