Beginner's Music Theory
I will help you learn the following skills:
-read a grand staff (treble and bass clef)
-understand moveable C clef
-understand scales, major keys, and the 3 main minor key tonalities
-understand time signatures and note values
-understand key signatures and accidentals
-identify written notes on a keyboard
I will work with you to learn as many of these skills as possible up to 5 hour-long sessions.
Ideally, please have a keyboard of at least one octave, as well as staff paper or a white board and marker to draw staves on.
