Music Theory - 101
Dean Rollins – Instructor, Music Theory 101
Recommended Age: 4th grade and up
Designed specifically for musical theater students, this series of Zoom classes will teach your child how to read music, learn musical vocabulary, understand rhythm, and play a basic piano piece. All musical theater students should be able to sit at the piano and play the melody line that they need to sing – this course will teach them that skill!
Music Theory is divided into 4 classes (101 – 104). Each class is 4 weeks long. You can continue or stop at any time. Highlights from each class will include:
- Music Theory 101 – reading notes on the staff, rhythm and vocabulary.
- Music Theory 102 – intervals, sharps/flats, half/whole steps, more rhythm and vocabulary.
- Music Theory 103 – key signatures, complex rhythm patterns, the beginning of scales.
- Music Theory 104 – scales, chords and composition.
What you will need: A portable device, a pencil and a keyboard.
What will this cost: $80/class (4 lessons).
How long will each class take: 40 minutes. However, it may take an additional 10 minutes. I do not want to rush the students. So plan on 50 minutes, but I will try to keep it down to 40 minutes.
How many students will I take: 12 is max, would like to keep to 10.
When does this start: Monday, October 26th, 5:00 PM – 5:50 PM. Weekly thereafter.
