Virtual Music Theory for Guitarists

Age 10+ (including adults)
Intermediate and Advanced Guitarists (Suzuki Guitar Book 2+). 

Prerequisite: Students must be able to identify notes on staff, clefs, time signatures and rhythms, and know how sharps and flats work. 

Ever wonder why it helps you as a musician to learn music theory?  Does the stuff you learn in music theory seem like it has no relevance to learning the guitar?  This class bridges the gap between theory and what you play on guitar - for example, how to construct major, minor, augmented, diminished chords, and seventh chords and then figure out how to use this information to find chord shapes in various positions on the fingerboard.  Students will do harmonic analysis of Suzuki guitar pieces and then talk about how this information helps shape our musical interpretation. Class size is limited to 6. Note: Tuition for students taking this class together with private lessons is $248 (members)/$275 (public).

Jun 29 – Aug 12, Monday and Wednesday, 5:00-5:45 pm
