Whether you are studying privately with one of our bART instructors or studying privately outside of our school, our music theory classes are open to young musicians of all levels. The study of music theory is indispensable to the development of literate, well-rounded musicians. Intertwined with history, this class provides students with a sense of artistic chronology, repertoire, and an awareness of varied styles and style periods. This includes the study of musical training from a variety of cultures and traditions from Western and Eastern global classical traditions to a more contemporary understanding of popular nomenclature. Music theory develops the “seeing ear” (the ability to hear music and know how it should look in notation) and the “hearing eye” (the ability to see music and know how it should sound).
