Music Theory for Playing by Ear
Presented with an emphasis on playing by ear, this 5-week course covers topics normally taught in an introductory theory course. The ability to read notation is not expected. Starting with the musical alphabet and major scale, we move to chord construction, extensions, progressions, transposing, and the circle of 5ths with a goal to increase understanding, strengthen improvising abilities and play collectively. Open to any instrument.
