I received my BA in music (focus on guitar) at Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX. We were required to progress through 5 semesters of music theory classes and music literature classes. We covered pretty much everything the western side of the world has to offer musically.
If you are thinking about carrying on with music later in life, an early education in music theory will help you tremendously! I wish I had started earlier.
I teach a course at Tarrant County College called "Fundamentals of Music" that I also like to teach to in private lessons to those interested in knowing more about the technical side of music. This is for students who need more of an understanding of music so they can play their instrument better or this is for students who know nothing about music and want to spend some time learning the basics of music theory. Topics studied are treble clef, bass clef, scales, rhythm, terms, intervals, chords and chord progressions. 2 CDs test ear-training skills. The text is available at most music stores. Heidi S. studied Music Theory and Ear-Training as a graduate student at Baylor University. Text needed is “Alfred’s Essentials of Music Theory: A Complete Self-Study Course for All Musicians (Workbook includes volumes 1-3 and 2 CDs)
I have been a teacher privately and a University professor for over 20 years. I like teaching theory as a language! We hear it, see it and speak it! I apply elements of contemporary and classical music to all we do. We focus on composition, ear training and music literacy.
