Music Theory For Songwriters Online Workshop > 12 Week Series

This workshop will give you the musical building blocks for constructing a solidly crafted song. Practica Musica is a comprehensive music theory software program used by the Berklee School of Music and many U.S. Universities. It was designed to be studied with the guidance of a teacher, and I provide a songwriting-specific syllabus that utilizes Practica Musica Activities I have hand-picked from all of the Courses and Menus of the program. You get the necessary support to see you through the exercises, as I decode technical musical theory jargon and show you how to have fun with making music in our weekly online session.
