Unpack the language of music in this series of courses.

This course provides students with the skills and knowledge required to understand and apply the basics of the language of music notation and begin the process of sight reading. Classes will be led in a tutorial context with practical and theoretical components.

Level 1 will cover:

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.

As this course builds on concepts quickly and is aimed at students who want to learn to read music. It is recommended that students spend 20 mins per day reviewing concepts and doing the exercises given in class.

Recommended for:

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


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

Renata does a great job, explaining the theory to a very diverse audience, with varying levels of musical background and with expectations about what they want from a theory class.

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'd like to thank Renata for an informative 8 weeks in this first session of Music Fundamentals. Since completing this first module, I've already increased my confidence in attempting to write and transpose music myself. Looking forward to part 2

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

Renata was patient and supportive - explained concepts really well and happy to revisit areas where students had problems
