Music Theory I

Welcome to music theory! This is where you will learn -- to put it simply -- how to read and write music. The next few weeks will likely be the most challenging as we explore all the technical aspects of music, so review and practice as much as you need, ask questions in the forum, and remember that you will be able to complete the course even if you don't have a full grasp of these concepts. Do your best and enjoy!
