A Complete Music Theory Course on Video
Today I’m sharing the first lesson (a pilot, you might say) of a complete video music theory course with the above title. I have seen a lot of related videos on YouTube and so on but, so far, have found very few that don’t assume some prior knowledge. Hence the title of this course.
In particular, this course will benefit;
- Students preparing for ABRSM, Trinity or other Music Theory exams from Grade 1 to 8
- Instrumentalists who need Grade 5 theory to progress to higher grades
- Students wanting to take GCSE/A Level Music but who have still to learn the required terms and concepts.
- Amateur musicians – members of bands, choirs, amateur orchestras, rock bands etc. who want to be better informed and understand the terminology.
- Home studio enthusiasts – the course includes DAW/MIDI and staff notation
- Music lovers who are curious about how it all works
I think it’s going to be useful for self-study, in the classroom, or for instrumental teachers whose pupils need Grade 5 theory to progress beyond that grade on their instruments. The final version of this course, for all stages from beginner to advanced and which will be available online or for download, will feature;
- Awareness of the aural effects of what is studied theoretically
- Supplementary downloadable worksheets
- Online quizzes – access code supplied with each video download
- Opportunities to have your questions answered via chat, email or;
- Optional face to face consultations using Zoom, Teams, Skype, Google Meet etc.
This video, Lesson 1, covers the absolute basics, but subsequent lessons are at various stages of preparation, so I thought it would be a good idea to ask for feedback before going too much further!
