WHO: anyone, you don’t have to be a current student!

This is a basic intro to chords beyond major and minor; when they’re used, how they’re formed, and some great listening examples. If you’re curious about jazz(y) chords and their use in pop, broadway, and standards, come find out! This class is highly encouraged before moving on to extended note chords (7ths, 9ths, etc.).
WHAT IS IT?
The first music theory night at the new Bobby Apperson Music Studio!
Come Strike a Chord’ * Covering chords (what – how – why) and what to do with them!
This kicks off 2015 group classes on a variety of music & theory subjects.
Music theory is the study of how music is written and played. Music theory distills and analyzes the fundamental parameters or elements of music—rhythm, harmony (harmonic function), melody, structure, form, and texture.
WHAT ISN’T IT?
It is NOT a piano lesson and you don’t have to perform or get up in front of people at all. A lot of it is written – on the board, on your clipboard, and then demonstrated and played.
* For adults
* Covering chords (what – how – why) and what to do with them!
* Visual, written, verbal and piano / interactive group lessons
* 7-8:15pm at the studio (PLEASE BE ON TIME or a bit early!)
* $25 and some snacks and drinks will be available
* bring a friend or partner!
