The origins and history of music notation
The principles of contemporary music notation
Reading and writing of music notation
Key signatures, scales and time signatures
The use of intervals
Rhythmic concepts
Harmonic concepts as triads (chords)
Rhythmic exercises and time feel

Students will gain a practical understanding of music notation, terminology, layout of manuscript reading and a good grounding in chords and rhythmic concepts.

Recommended for:

  • Beginners
  • People who may have done some theory years ago but who are rusty
  • Working musicians who do not read music


Surprisingly seamless transition with no discernible negative impact on learning outcomes. (REGARDING ONLINE LEARNING)

Renata was brilliant, and it was just as if we were in the classroom. (REGARDING ONLINE LEARNING)

Renata is fun and very present. She is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour

_Renata teaches music fundamentals in a fun and interactive way, its impossible not to enjoy this course! The mix of music history with theory helped put context to what was being taught. I will definitely
move onto Music Fundamentals 2_

An interested and dedicated instructor who communicated her enthusiasm well.

I’ve learned so many new things. Now I am beginning to understand concepts I had only heard of in the past.
