MUSIC THEORY
MORE MUSIC THEORY CAN MAKE YOUR MUSIC BETTER

  • Harmonies: Vocal harmony has great impact. Learn the math.
  • Scales and Keys: It’s not as hard as it seems! Learn the shortcuts.
  • Harmony: Learn More Advanced Chord Structures and Progressions
  • Blend: Timbre and instrumentation is a deeply internalized and important aspect of music’s appeal.
  • Rehearsal techniques can make the difference between great and OK performances. Music Theory will inform and enhance your rehearsals, your group’s report, and your impact.
  • Repertoire: Tighten up your charts and arrangements to sharpen your performances.


There are many styles of notation for music - you can easily turn your songs into rhythm charts in an easy to follow format. Or you can create lead sheets (like “Cosmos” in the banner above) and arrangements for publication.

Downloadable, on-demand, digital sheet music is a growing market.

WHY DID I START THE WORKSHOPS?

Most school’s music education has been consistently undercut for years. College courses can be expensive, time consuming & often geared only to music majors (mostly Classical). This workshop is for aspiring musician of all kinds & levels, as well as majors who may feel they didn’t learn enough, or practical information, for whatever style of music they prefer.
When I was an adjunct at the Univ. of Arizona a few years ago, I was asked to teach a music theory course. As a former music professor, I taught theory many times. The UofA students that summer session had vastly different musical backgrounds, so I developed an approach to address each individual’s “gaps” while covering the basic fundamentals. It was fun, and effective.
The main objectives of this workshop is to help each participant be able to apply what they learn in the class in a
practical way, one that suits them as an individual. There are literally thousands of music theory books, but when someone is there to answer your questions, you can progress faster, easier and with more confidence.
