About this event


Focusing on mastering the fundamentals of reading and hearing, analysis and writing, the first level of music theory directly supports beginning instrumental study. Mastery of the skills and concepts in Level 1 result in fluency in the following areas: reading of the treble and bass clefs; key signatures; interval content of major and minor scales; relative minor and relative major scale relationships; conducting beat patterns of 2, 3 and 4 while singing; division of the beat into 2, 3 and 4 parts; tonic and dominant chords in all major and minor keys; Writing and composition assignments build on students growing mastery of theoretical concepts, music reading, and ear training skills. Analysis work, whenever possible and appropriate, is based on pieces students are studying in their lessons.
