Elementary Music Theory: Introduction


Elementary Music Theory encompasses the theoretical knowledge of musical notation, measure and rhythm, triads, scales, associated vocabulary – and a lot more.

Elementary Music Theory is divided into 8 levels. On completion of level 8, the theoretical knowledge gained will be sufficient to sit for music conservatorium entrance exams. The lesson plan in each level is divided into 10 subjects. For an overview, see the Table of Contents.
