Music Theory Made Simple
April 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Monday, repeating until April 27, 2020
Want a better understanding of music theory but don’t read music (and don’t have time to learn)? This is the class for you! In 4 one-hour sessions, we’ll cover the basics of music theory, why it’s important, and a few easy ways of putting it into practice. The class will incorporate several examples from contemporary music and invite participants to practice in class. Optional: bring your own instrument, or come to learn & observe as a music appreciator. Please enter through the Penn Avenue door.
Dates: April 6, 13, 20 & 27 from 4:00 – 5:00 pm
