Music Theory 2 Course
This course is designed for anyone who would like to study how Western music works and who has become comfortable with the notation concepts we learned in Music Theory 1, our music literacy course. Some of the topics we’ll cover include interval size, interval qualities like major, minor, perfect, diminished, and augmented, the different kinds of major and minor scales, and analyzing and writing the different kinds of triads you’ll encounter in Western music!
Learning to identify intervals quickly will help a huge amount in your sight-reading on your instrument, and especially if you are a singer, it will allow you to find your pitches much more easily and will speed up music learning in almost every instrument you might want to study. Guitarists and pianists, in particular, will benefit from learning triads, which will make sight-reading and composing much more efficient.
