Whether you are a beginner looking for a way into understanding music, or an intermediate or experienced musician looking for a refresher or to fill gaps in your knowledge, this information-packed day aims to help you de- mystify music theory.
Starting with the most basic terminology and theory, the workshop covers the nature of sound, how music started, what the key of a song is and how to find it and what some of the more complicated ideas mean. The day will be particularly helpful to those taking their first steps in learning to play, whatever the instrument. Please note this day is more of a tutorial than a hands-on workshop, and includes supporting notes.
Course leader Pete Normanton is a highly experienced musician and guitar teacher, specialising in making music accessible to the “non musician”.
