Music Foundations #101 (Module 1)

“A course full of ‘light-bulb’ moments, where previously complex concepts are explained in a manner which makes them seem so simple.”  Cameron

 

This intensive 12 hour workshop gives participants a comprehensive and very practical grounding in the basics of music.  The 4 sessions of 3 hours each are conducted variously over four weeks or two days.

 

“Anyone who does anything with music should do this course.”  Jan

 

Music Foundations #101 is the first step for people aged 15+ entering the program.  Younger people may attend if they are accompanied by an older person who can assist them as necessary.

 

Here we will cover rhythm and melody creating / memorising / reading / writing.  All participants learn a revolutionary method of note reading as well as time signatures, scales, keys, tonality and how to apply these to the piano and guitar.  Participants will also develop introductory skills in sight reading for singing, song writing and the foundations of being able to hear a tune in their head and write it down.

 

“Inspiring and lots of fun.”  Oriana

 

This is an INTENSIVE workshop and genuinely has something for everyone.  It has been attended by music professionals, teachers, hobbyists and complete novices each to enthusiastic endorsements.

 

“I’ve been teaching for over 40 years and this has inspired me to teach differently.  It will be quicker and more secure for the pupils.”  Angela
