Chords Class: 'Striking a Chord!' - What are all these notes?

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

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 and mature kids (high school or late middle school)
* Covering chords (what - how - why) and what to do with them!
* $20 suggested donation - some snacks and drinks will be available
* Bring a friend or partner!
* PLEASE RSVP so I know to expect you. The music studio is located on a private residence in a separate structure, so I'll need to meet you at the gate if you're new, thanks!

At the end you can vote on upcoming subjects, like:
