Introduction to Music Theory and Beyond


In my introduction to music theory I will help build you build the necessary foundation to go confidently into any Bachelor-level college courses and beyond. The only prerequisite is a prior knowledge of how to read music which I think is best learned on the instrument of your choice (and a lot more fun too). My experience was 4 years of music theory courses at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University where I achieved the highest theory marks of my graduating class over the 4 year program. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!
