They are also great for those who need theory qualifications before entering school, college or university. The classes are ideal for people who are simply enthusiasts; those who want to know more about the workings of music.

NOTE: You will not get a qualification from this course. Students must take exam at external location.

Do I need to be able to read music or play an instrument before I start the classes?

You don’t need to have even touched an instrument to learn about music theory. The Beginner Music Theory course assumes you know nothing about how music works, and will therefore explain

In order to embark on the Basic Music Theory course, we ask that you first take the Beginner Music Theory class. Or if you already know the basics, we will ask you to complete a short two-minute test.

What will the courses cover?

Beginner Music course

In the Beginner Music course, you will learn about rhythm and note names (using a piano as guidance). Simple terminology will be covered, and dynamics discussed (how loud you play). You will learn what a bar is, and recognising if a bar contains three or four counts (beats).

Basic Music Theory course

In the Basic Music Theory course, you will learn about the construction of the musical scale, intervals (tone, semitones etc.), metre (3/4, 4/4, 6/8 etc.), major and minor triads, chords, and cadences, among other things. The course will have regular recap points to check you have understood everything along the way, and a test at the end, designed to flag up your strengths and weaknesses so you know what to focus on when studying further.
