Instructor: Ryan Young
Description: Foundations of Music Theory is a multi-faceted class that combines the study of the elements of music, the process of both listening and thinking about music, and the development of musicianship skills. This class is for all current and future musicians who want to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of music while receiving pro-active and personal musical coaching. Students will explore melody, harmony, composition, improvisation, notation systems, rhythm, and many other musical foundations. Additionally, we will use the recording and production equipment at Griffin to introduce students to digital audio recording. If you are already very familiar with music theory and composition, this class is not for you.
