Theory is the language of music. Just like English language, it has structures, forms and rules to follow. Music too, has its own set of structures, forms and rules.
Music theory examines how music works, its language and notations and the overall structure of how music elements (rhythm, chords, scales, melody, harmony and texture) are pieced together resulting in a complex piece. Music theory is the stepping-stone to playing beautiful pieces of music. Once you are able to read the notations on a score, you are set to learn how to play anything.
Aural training is a fundamental criterion in the development of a complete musician. All music examination boards include aural tests as part of their examination assessment thereby further stressing the importance of this fundamental skill. The ability to incorporate the following skills is just some of the benefits attained when aural skills have been developed:
> Transcribe melodies, and identify minor and major chords by ear
> Sing in tune
> Add improvisations to your performances
> Perform with other musicians
> Compose your own music
> Tune your instrument
We offer aural courses only from grade 1 to grade 8. Crash courses are available for students who want to take only a specific grade as required for their exams.
