More details. DoMiSol Group Music Classes combine Theory and History of Music disciplines. Creative music theory classes are musicianship classes complementing instrument instruction. The ultimate goal of creative theory is to produce a literate musician, able to understand, read, write, analyze, and compose music. And all while having fun!
Ear training is a big part of music theory class. Students are taught to hear and recognize pitches, intervals, and chords. Solfeggio (do-re-mi), a traditional method of naming pitches, tied to "fixed do" is being used for ear-training. Students learn scales, key signatures, basics of harmony, and rhythm. They also learn conducting patterns and play rhythm ensembles. Students in intermediate and advanced classes learn counterpoint. All theory concepts and skills are demonstrated on the piano, and basic piano literacy is also introduced in class.
