PLUC Weekend Workout

25 Oct

We’re often asked questions in club nights about music theory. There are already a number of useful articles on our website &, recently, I spotted that the Open University offer this free introductory course An Introduction To Music Theory on their Open Learn site.

This unit Introduces you to the basic concepts of western music notation and music theory, getting you to about Grade 3 standard with around 8 hours’ study at your own pace. From the OU site:

The course covers music notation (the staff, clefs and note names). It then moves on to consider the notation of rhythm and of pitch. In addition, the basic form of the chord (the triad) is included, together with a list of the most frequently used performance directions that you will find on notated music (scores). Each section ends with interactive activities that will help you assess how far you understand individual topics or concepts.
