Music Theory Classes, presented by NJIO

**This event is ONLINE and requires registration**

New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra is proud to present a series of classes on Music Theory, at both the beginner and advanced levels. Presented by Liam Keller, this series of four classes will take place on Wednesday, July 8, 15, 22, and 29, with the “Intro to Music Theory” class at 7:00 pm and the “Music Theory II” class at 8:00 pm each night. The cost is $42 for four online sessions, your choice of either Intro or Advanced. For more information, please visit www.NJIO.org, call 908-603-7691, or email info@njio.org.

In the “Introduction to Music Theory” class, you will learn the basic tenets of music theory and notation, and also how to practice aural skills related to the use of theory in compositions. This class will review topics such as the identifying properties of music, the grand staff and ledger lines in four clefs, note and rest values in duple, triple, simple, and compound meter, Major/minor scales and key signatures, and how to aurally differentiate between major, minor, and modal sounds both in scales and intervals.

 In the “Music Theory II” class, we will take a deeper dive into the more advanced intricacies of music theory and how to identify them in compositions. We will also focus on fine-tuning your ear to identify the information in the larger musical sense. This class will cover topics such as the identifying properties of music, the grand staff and ledger lines in four clefs, how to distinguish intervals and scales by ear, triads, chords, and inversions in multiple key signatures, and chord progressions and Roman numeral analysis.
