Course Details

This is a beginner's course for musical composition designed for students who have already achieved an intermediate level understanding of musical theory. However, a review of musical scales will be provided if needed. Notes and chord progressions will be reviewed in-depth while instructor Chiara Lo Faro helps students incorporate rhythm and chord techniques to add musical ornamentation to their sound. When the student is ready to move forward, the instructor will guide them through the process of improvising for the first time. This will allow students to play music intuitively, without guidance. This is the first step of music composition.
