Looking to get a handle on some basic theory? We are very excited to have Casey Connors teaching a fun and informative workshop on Saturday at 11am! Casey also plays with with fabulous Bellingham band, Ratteltrap Ruckus.
Beginning Music Theory for Musicians
This workshop aims to give you essential tools to visualize how music works in order to make sense of the musical landscape and to enable your playing. We'll cover the very basics of pitch, note naming, keys, scales, modes, and the basics of rhythm. If we have time we might address basic harmony as well (i.e. chords). The point is not to obsess over esoteric terminology but to cultivate a greater intimacy with the music we make. The visual aids will blow you mind. We will not be covering music notation at all. If you're interested to take "Musical Anatomy" or "Hearing Chord Changes" at 1pm, this may be a good foundational place to start. There will be plenty of examples given, but an instrument of your own is not required.
