This introductory course will cover and explain the elements of written music with the aim of enabling singers and players to interpret their practical music with more confidence and accuracy.
You will learn the basics of note-values, pitch and scale/chord patterns, symbols, and Italian terms and signs. You will gain an understanding of how these elements help you communicate and experience your music in a more meaningful way.
Your teacher will give you feedback and advice. You'll work with your classmates to evaluate each other's work. You'll also complete an individual learning plan.
Suitable for all levels of ability and experience.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
