Basic Music Theory | $15 per class

This class is taught weekly and some of the same topics are covered each week, but it is also driven by questions from the students. This class is also ideal for students who may have some experience with music, in order to fill in any gaps in understanding that may exist. No instrument is necessary, but something to take notes with is encouraged. This is an informational class and does not include any tests or finals.

Intro to Counterpoint | $300 for 10 Weeks

Intermediate theory knowledge is required for participation in this class. We will work from the Gradus ad Parnassum approach to counterpoint and create multi-voice exercises to explore the origins of harmony and to gain a closer understanding of music from all eras. Please have a pencil and staff paper. 

This course takes place over 10 weeks and will cover melody writing through writing 2 or 3 part contrapuntal exercises. The goal of the class is to introduce the historical perspective on harmony and the underlying axioms for music theory as it is understood today.
