Introduction to Music Theory for Adults
This course provides an approach to music theory that is more closely connected to the sound and fell of music and the history of music notation than the traditional textbook approach. Even those who understand the basics of music theory can expect to gain a richer understanding of how music notation works. Each week we will explore both rhythm and pitch elements, up to and including key signatures, time signatures, clefs, scales, and intervals.
Available as a public access course
This course is a non-credit public access course. Public access non-credit courses are offered at a reduced rate, and you do not need to be a King's student to register.
