Students learn and review the fundamentals of Western Classical music such as form, harmony, melody and rhythm. Through guided listening and take-home resources, the class aims to give students a deeper understanding of how music works and is an excellent resource for parents and caregivers who are supporting students studying music. Students engage in small composition activities that provide a motivating, interactive approach to applied music theory and will bring a fresh perspective to the music you listen to everyday.

This class is offered at two levels, one for those who have little prior training in music and one for students who have prior experience with music theory or instrumental skills.
