Music Theory Lessons - Joanne Naughton Music

Music Theory gives students a thorough understanding of the building blocks of the musical language, starting with rhythm and pitch.


It is fascinating once you start to delve into the fundamentals of music. It's not just about playing the notes; it's about understanding what they mean and how they work together.
