Secrets to Music Theory UPDATE

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to send this update out to you guys about a few important updates to the series:


1) After some consideration I think everyone will benefit even more from these theory sessions if they bring their instruments. So the first half of each session will be written & verbal drills and exercises. The second half will be applying these lessons on our instruments which really is the ultimate goal in music theory.

2) Although, these sessions are geared towards the basic fundamentals of music, it is important not do dismiss this series as being too basic. A thorough and complete study of music fundamentals is key in order to move on to more complex music theory concepts. If you find yourself not being able to grasp the more complex stuff then most likely your fundamentals still needs reviewing. In this series I'll be showing you the easiest and fastest method to practice your fundamentals in order to be primed and ready to take on further complex music theory subjects.

3) Each session will be 2 hours long in order to accommodate lecture time, questions, and application of each music theory concepts to our instruments. Please arrive early enough to get situated and ready to start as each session will be fast paced in order to cover each element of music thoroughly. Please bring a couple of pencils, erasures, manuscript paper and a writing pad or notebook to write on. Here is a link to print free manuscript paper if you need it:

We still have plenty of space for tonight's session (Day 2) on Note Reading. We will be covering all aspects of how to become a better sight reader on your instrument. It's going to be a fun hands on learning experience. here's the link for more info:
