Theory lessons are a very important part of our students' musical education. If you wonder why you need to take music theory lessons when you only want to learn to sing or play an instrument, the answer is that music theory lessons will help you to read, understand, analyze, create, and communicate music on a deeper level.
Music theory examines the core aspects of music and its a system that allows musicians to communicate their creativity in music with others. Music theory will teach you how music works.
Music theory lessons will deepen your ability to understand the structure of music including notation, key signatures, time signatures, chord progressions, among other things. This usually leads to a better understanding of music, boosts creativity and expression, communication with other musicians, and the use of professional vocabulary. Music will make more sense to a musician by learning music theory.
Our goal is to match you with one of our talented teachers who will inspire you to learn about the fundamentals in music theory, which in return will guarantee you success in your music education no matter which path in music you decide to take. Whether you want to learn to sing, play an instrument, become a composer, songwriter, music producer or become a music teacher; the options are limitless, but it all starts with learning music theory.
Our highly accredited teachers have received their music education from prestigious institutions such as The University of Toronto, Humber College, York University, Conservatory Berklee College of Music, Glenn Gould Professional School, and McGill University Faculty of Music. They gladly share their great wealth of knowledge and experience for the benefit of their students.
Our music school offers a cutting-edge curriculum developed in collaboration with the Royal Conservatory of Music which gives our students access to a nationally accredited program. Our music teachers will prepare you for the requirements of every level of your Royal Conservatory of Music examinations (RCM exams for all levels). To complete higher-level practical RCM Examinations, every music student needs to complete written theory exams in order to obtain the full certificate from grade 5 and up. Our teachers will help you achieve high scores on these exams. This will also help you be successful in being accepted at any music program at a college or a university of your choice.
We offer beginner and advanced theory classes for children and adults. Sometimes, especially for beginner students, music theory may seem like a complex subject. This is one of the reasons why having the right music teacher plays a vital role in getting your or your child’s music education on the right track. Learning music theory will not be difficult with the help of the right teacher. Our teaching methods are tailored to suit the needs and goals of every individual student.
Some of the building blocks in the core of music theory include harmony, melody, and rhythm. Learning about these basic elements of music theory will help you get a better understanding of music.
Other core concepts in music theory that allow a musician to read, write, sing or play music include:
