Music Theory 101
Theory 101 will introduce the world of basic music theory. We will cover the circle of fifths, scales, & chord structure, modes, and how chords and melodies work together. This is a fun, relaxed, and low-pressure way to add some insight into, and enhance, your playing. Bring an instrument if you like. The class will hold mini-sessions during each meeting for playing together and simple improv.
