Music Theory for Playing by Ear
This 5-week course covers many of the topics typically taught in an introductory music theory course, but with an emphasis on playing by ear. The ability to read notation is not expected or necessary. The course starts with an introduction to the musical alphabet and the major scale, then moves to chord construction, chord extensions, chord progressions, transposing, and the circle of 5ths. The goal is to increase understanding and the ability to improvise and play with others. Open to any instrument including voice.
