Theory Thursday #1: Striking A Chord!

  • Bobby Apperson Music Studio 3439 Atwater Ave Los Angeles, CA, 90039 (map)

The first music theory night at Bobby Apperson Music Studio!
'Striking a Chord!' * Covering chords (what - how - why) and what to do with them!
This kicks off group classes on a variety of music & theory subjects.

WikiPedia says:
Music theory is the study of how music is written and played. Music theory distills and analyzes the fundamental parameters or elements of music—rhythm, harmony (harmonic function), melody, structure, form, and texture.

It is NOT a piano lesson and you don't have to perform or get up in front of people at all. A lot of it is written - on the board, on your clipboard, and then demonstrated and played.

* For adults
* Covering chords (what - how - why) and what to do with them!
* Visual, written, verbal and piano / interactive group lessons
* 7-8:30pm at the studio (PLEASE BE ON TIME or a bit early!)
* $20 suggested donation - some snacks and drinks will be available
