This course introduces students to the basics of music notation, including rhythm, pitch, and expressive markings. Students also learn to construct and identify rudimentary harmonies, including intervals (two-note chords), triads (three-note chords), and seventh chords (four-note chords).

During and after each lesson you will be given short tasks to complete. Some will be available for download in the resources of the lesson. There will also be a test for a few lessons.

Assumes no previous familiarity with Western musical notation. However, each lesson in this course assumes familiarity with all preceding lessons; for that reason, it is recommended that chapters are studied in order. This course is designed for a wide audience, including high school students (and those taking AP Music Theory), collegiate non-music majors (and musical theater majors), and collegiate music majors.
