Class Descriptions

Music Composition Lessons

No music-writing experience necessary!  This is for students who enjoy creating music on their instrument, with their voice, or in their head, but need help getting the notes onto the paper.  Beginners are welcome-if you've never had a music lesson, you will learn about the various notes and their values and pitches and how to write them (notate) on the musical staff.  For intermediate or advanced students who already know how to notate, you can delve right into composition study, which includes exercises in counterpoint, harmony, as well as polishing and fine-tuning your own compositions until they are cohesive and bear your unique "thumbprint."  Students may also use music engraving software to electronically notate music onto the staff and create professional-looking scores.

Music Theory Lessons

Thsi course is for the beginning music student who wants to learn how to read, write, count, and play music on the staff, or for the intermediate or advanced student who wishes to improve their abilities in rhythm, music-reading, notation, score analysisi, and even composition.  Our experienced AP Music Theory teacher can help the student with AP coursework and to prepare them for the AP test.

Note:  Composition and Music Theory lessons work hand-in-hand, and may be combined according to the needs of the student.
