Event description

Description

Getting Started With Music Theory is a 4-week online course offered by Michigan State University and Coursera and facilitated by Toronto Public Library as a learning circle. Participants will register online for the Getting Started With Music Theory course and then meet weekly in the library to discuss each week's course topics. The learning circle is facilitated by staff with extensive musical knowledge and backgrounds who can help you understand concepts and successfully complete the weekly assignments.

This course is a brief introduction to music theory for those with little or no experience and will explore pitch, rhythm, meter, notation, scales, keys, key signatures, meter signatures, triads, seventh chords, and basic harmony. By the end of the course, you should know all major and minor keys, how to read and write in treble and bass clef using standard meters and rhythmic values, and how to notate and harmonize a simple melody.

This course can serve as a stand-alone basic music theory course, or it can be a springboard to more advanced theory and composition courses.

Please register online for the learning circle to ensure your spot. More information about the syllabus and the weekly topics covered is available here through the Coursera website.

Visit the Toronto Reference Library Arts Department or call 416-395-5577 for more information.
