Theory Just for Singers - Advanced

This course is not for the faint hearted! Students will be expected to already know their key and time signatures. We will expand on the use of scales with the introduction of modes and harmony. Rhythm will be thoroughly delved into and applied. Prepare to be challenged! There will be no singing involved.

This class will be delivered online via the online platform Zoom. Enrolling students need to ensure they have an email, a reliable internet connection, microphone/speakers and access to a tablet, smartphone or computer.
