Music Theory

Music theory lessons are currently available

The study of music theory, though not essential to learning the guitar, can greatly enhance and expand your appreciation and understanding of music in general, no matter what instrument you play.

Music theory lessons at Blue Wave Guitar are suitable for those wishing to study music formally and undertake graded theory or college/university exams, as well as those who have a general interest in music and would like to understand a little more about ‘how it works’.

Although many of the students who come for theory lessons are guitar players, it is not essential to play the guitar in order to understand music theory, although some practical experience of a musical instrument is usually helpful.

When studying music theory, you will learn the following:

  • Pitch
  • Rhythm
  • Musical notation and reading music
  • Musical terms and what they mean
  • Chords and scales
  • Harmony and melody
  • Keys and key signatures
  • Time and time signatures
  • Intervals
  • Transposition
  • Composition
