MUSIC THEORY COURSES OVERVIEW

We offer a four course (two-three year) series on Music Theory, Music History, and Composition, taking students who start out knowing nothing about music (or very little) through all the steps and exercises needed to read music, play on a keyboard (such as a piano), understand the history of music, and finally, how to compose their own pieces.

IMPORTANT - Please note that there are music exercise books you'll need to do the first two courses, and that these are not provided by Connect The Thoughts.

The end result of our Music Theory program is a student who plays some keyboard or piano, reads music, understands the history of music, understands the essentials of music theory and is able to compose interesting and original compositions.

To find out more about this program, please take a look at the video that you'll find toward the top right of this page. Then take a look at the description and samples provided for each course.

All courses are PDFs and can be instantly downloaded upon purchase!
