Image Picker for Section 0

Theory Fluency (SPRING 2021)

When: Twice weekly on Tuesday & Thursday, 5-5:30pm, March 23 through May 6 (no class on March 30 or April 1)

Where: ZOOM

Tuition: $50 for twelve 30 minute classes

Prerequites: Participants must have taken CMS Music Theory I, II, III, or IV, or already have an understanding of intervals, triads, scales, and key signatures.

In order to be capable of doing more advanced music theory, students must have not just understanding of the basics of music theory but also be capable of using that knowledge with speed (fluency). This class will focus on methods to make identifying and creating intervals, triads, scales, and key signatures to a level of proficiency where they are effortless. This will therefore make tackling advanced theory a much less demanding next step as students advance through music theory.
