What is Music Theory?
This topic on Music Theory is very close to my heart. I have blogged about it some time ago, however I feel I must reiterate the importance of Music Theory here. Besides I also teach adults piano lessons who want to learn piano privately.
Music Theory is the study of how music works. It forms an Integral part of Music education. Composers use symbols and notes for their music compositions and if you do not understand what they mean, how can you be an effective musician? And how can you appreciate the piece you are playing?
Music and Theory must go hand in hand. As the saying goes, “A good musician is one who understands how the music works.” Hence, a student lacking in music knowledge is missing out on a huge piece of the pie. The student is missing out on a wealth of knowledge in terms of understanding and appreciating how music works.
I have received many enquiries regarding Music Theory lessons. I found that many students are struggling with their theory lessons. Some do not have theory incorporated in their regular piano lessons and many students find themselves at a bottleneck when they reach Grade 5 Practical and realize that they require a minimum of Grade 5 Theory in order to proceed on to Grade 6 Practical. These are stressful times for both parents and students.
Hence I have tailored the Intensive Theory Lessons for these students in mind. I want to help them to appreciate and understand Music Theory in as short a time as possible as most of them attend my lessons with only 9 months before their Theory Examinations. Of course, the length and duration will depend on individual students and where their starting level is.
However, my aim is to help them to achieve the level of Grade 5 in as short a time as possible as well as making the learning as painless and stress-free for them.
