Music Theory and Perception



What is it?


The Musical Theory and Perception course is organized in such a way that the student expands his practical knowledge of instrument/singing classes, where he will understand important musical concepts such as: knowing how to identify notes in the score, knowing scales and musical intervals , learn about chord formation and the harmonic field.

Also in this course, the student develops his/her rhythmic, melodic and harmonic perception through solfeggios and dictations, always contextualized with the contents seen in class.

Performed in different modules and levels. Beginner, medium and advanced level classes in addition to individual classes.
