Music Theory & Aural Training Online Class

Brad Allen is teaching the Encore Enrichment Class Music Theory and Aural Training Online Class for all ages and levels.

The purpose of this class is to provide a comprehensive and systematic ongoing training program for all our music students in music theory concepts and knowledge as well as to sharpen listening skills and analytical abilities.  It will create a more well-rounded and confident music student as well as improve skills which include sight-singing, improvisation, composition, sight-reading, form and analysis, and more.  Here is a list of some of the topics to be covered:

  • Staff, Clefs, and Ledger Lines

  • Note Durations

  • Measures and Time Signature

  • Rest Durations

  • Dots and Ties

  • Steps and Accidentals

  • Simple and Compound Meter

  • Odd Meter

  • Major and Minor Scales

  • Key Signatures

  • Chord Structure

  • Triad Inversion

  • Seventh Chord Inversions

  • Chord Progressions

  • Circle of 5ths

The Aural(Ear) Training aspect is an extension of many of the concepts such as chord identification, interval identification, scale identification. The students will listen to excerpts of music and determine the tonality as well as take rhythmic and melodic dictation. The class is $80/month, however all current Encore students receive a 50% discount bringing the tuition to $40/month and a one-time registration fee of $25. Please seriously consider this option as we feel it will further Encore's mission of providing excellent and enriching music education for all our students!
