Course Content

Music Theory is a core skill of a musician's workflow. Being able to compose through inspiration is one thing, but being able to compose with informed decisions will allow you to produce music quicker, more competently, and write in those moments where inspiration doesn't strike.

By the end, you will have a much better understanding of:

  • Why music theory is important
  • How scales are made
  • Chords and how to build chord progressions
  • Rhythm and rhythmic devices
  • The role of structure in composition

Already I feel like the idea of music theory as a language is more tangible to me as a non-traditional musician than it was before.

I discovered Guy on YouTube and was completely mind-blown by his energy and passion. That's why I chose ThinkSpace Education, because of their passion and how they make things simple and clear.
