A beginner and an intermediate guide to music theory and reading
Sat 21 January 2017, 11:00 – 16:00 GMT
Are all those dots on the music sheets a bit meaningless to you? Would you like them to make sense? Would you like to understand a bit more about how the building-blocks of music fit together?
Come and take part in this interactive workshop, where Richard will start right at the beginning and explain the basics of music theory and reading, and importantly, how to use this information in a practical way.
There are two parts to this workshop, and three types of ticket you can buy:
PART ONE: 11am-1pm (£15)
Suitable for absolute beginners, this class will explain the basic elements of reading music, covering pitch, rhythm and other elements which you will meet time and again when dealing with notated music. We will also look at major and minor scales and keys and learn a little about chords and harmony.
PART TWO: 2pm-4pm (£15)
Suitable for those who have a basic understanding of music-reading and some of the simpler elements of music theory, this class will show you how to begin to use this understanding of music practically, with particular reference to sight-singing.
BOTH CLASSES: 11am-1pm, 2-4pm (£20 - save over 30%):
You can register for both classes together for £20 instead of £30.
