Are you frustrated with trying to learn and use music theory? Does it feel like one big, endless math problem? Have you tried before but feel like you just don’t get it? Have you been procrastinating learning music theory or keep telling yourself you don’t need it, that you can get by? If so, this class is for you. 

When you enroll in the class, you will be given access to the private facebook group for Green Hills Guitar Studio where any additional questions can be answered, tips shared and videos posted if you want to share your progress. I will monitor, comment and respond to everyone. 

There will be no judgement or negative comments. The idea is to learn, have fun, support one another and share in your progress.

Topics covered include:

  • Composition and intervals of the major scale
  • Key signatures
  • Chord construction
  • Diatonic and non-diatonic harmony 
  • Tempo, time signatures, and rhythmic patterns
  • The Nashville Number system
  • Learning songs by ear
  • Basic chart writing
