Music Theory, Notation & Analysis

A strong understanding of the theory of music and how musical ideas are written down is rewarding in and of itself. This comprehension can also improve musical performance and practise techniques, and make formal music assessments (GCSE / A Level) more straightforward.

Working through ABRSM Graded workbooks (and my own supplementary materials), my sessions cover:

Introduction to musical notation
Time signatures, rhythm and meter
Staves and Clefs: Treble, Tenor, Alto, Bass
Scales, keys, scale degrees, and transposition
Modality, key signatures and relative keys
Composition of melody
Musical terms / symbols etc.
Chords, triads, inversions, figured bass, cadences etc.
Musical structure and tonal analysis
Texture: harmony and counterpoint, canonic and fugal writing
Avant garde music: atonality and polytonality
