KZK101 Tutoring’s Music Essentials – a condensed yet comprehensive 12-week course that assumes some self-taught musical ability. Presented in 12 packaged, hour-long class-format lessons and one hourly individual review session each week, no group of students has more than ten people, to ensure that every pupil receives personal attention. Performing, writing or producing music without ear training and a firm understanding of music theory is like navigating a ship without a map, it has been said. It might still get you somewhere, but perhaps not where you’d have liked to be. This music theory course is designed to help you gain a professional command of the mechanics behind most of the music that you enjoy, and will arm you with music history, knowledge of scales, intervals, chords, arranging, ear-training and sight-reading abilities.
Quality course materials are provided for each weekly lesson.
