This intensive six week online class is geared towards singers with little to no familiarity with music theory, who would like to gain practical tools for their practice, enhance their musicianship and learn to communicate more effectively with fellow musicians. Through analyzing sheet music from common repertoire, we will learn to make important connections between what’s on the page and the music we’re performing and become more attuned to the rhythm, harmony and melody of a song.
-The structure of sheet music- recognizing symbols on the page and their meaning
-The melodic line- learning to read treble clef, introduction to sight-reading
-The accompaniment and harmonic structure, introduction to chord symbols
*We will be using piano keyboards as part of the class. If you don’t have a keyboard available, a piano app on your phone would do.
