Discover the Wonder of Music Theory

“That’s music to my ear” is a common phrase used to express someone’s emotional response to how a particular tune can make them feel. Go beyond expressing enjoyment for different songs by learning about music theory. With our help, you can develop a deeper appreciation for music.

Although it is overlooked in many classes, music theory will help you become more creative when playing musical instruments. You may not be interested in writing music at the onset. However, you can build a strong foundation for the future should you decide to become a songwriter or composer.

Helping You Develop Independent Learning Skills

With a strong foundation comes the ability to depend on your own merits. You will be able to run through pieces of music on your own and develop personalized warm-up exercises. Learning about music theory also helps you become more confident in your musical abilities.

Establishing a foundation rooted in music theory means your interest in a musical instrument will continue because you have developed a better understanding of it. At Neighborhood Music, we have found this to be true, especially for children. They tend to stay focused and continue on the path of learning with their instruments.

Utilizing Modern Musical Technology

By using various advancements in musical technology, we can make your piano, viola, and violin lessons more engaging. For example, during our piano lessons, you can learn music theory using an intelligent digital keyboard. This allows you to interact with musical selections on a computer screen, making the process more enjoyable.

Timing is essential to playing the piano well, but it is often a big issue when beginning to play. A digital keyboard offers the convenience of a built-in metronome and simple controls to adjust the tempo and beat. You may find that you can make significant progress at a faster rate.
