Select Your Area To Find Local Music Theory Teachers
Music theory is everything to do with the reading and writing of music. It involves learning different symbols and markings that represent all the different notes and rhythms in music. Music is written on pages with 5-segmented horizontal lines. We call this a ‘score’.
*These are not instrument lessons. If you would like to learn to read music while leaning an instrument, your tutor will be able to help you with that. To learn an instrument, please go to the relevant instrument page found on the homepage or from the menu above.
So who would want to learn music theory outside of learning an instrument? These lessons are perfect for the following individuals:
1. Someone who can play an instrument but doesn’t know how to read music. It’s common for people to be self-taught or they may have had a tutor who only focussed on the aural and technical side of the instrument. This is a very popular reason for people wanting to learn music theory.
2. Anyone interested in composing. Learning music theory can open up a whole new world in the realm of composition. You will learn about song forms and structures, in different genres, as well as recognising patterns and common techniques used when writing music.
3. Children. Whether your child can play an instrument or has absolutely no music experience, learning music theory is a huge benefit. Most notably, it will give your child a chance to take grade exams and if he/she obtains a grade qualification, it will improve his/her chances of getting into University. Additionally, learning music theory improves the functions of the brain and will prepare your child – paving the way – for learning subjects like maths and languages.
The real beauty about music theory is you do not need to know how to play an instrument. You can learn to read music by studying the subject and training your ears without the aid of any instrument.
These are private lessons in london, at a location provided by the student or the tutor.
