Music Theory Lessons


When students study music theory, they learn how to speak and understand music’s unique language. This can lead to the ability to create better compositions and help you grow in major ways as a musician. In fact, for many people, studying musical theory is what turns them into true musicians, rather than someone who just plays for fun.

If you or your child want to truly learn to love, appreciate, and play great music, then we highly recommend taking our music theory lessons here at Chapel Hill School of Musical Arts. 

Read Music with Ease

One of the first things students learn when they take our music theory lessons online or in-person is how to read music. Many students have a very basic understanding of reading music or can do just enough to “get by” while playing their instrument of choice.

However, we’ll teach students to be fully fluent in reading music. That way, no piece will ever be out of their reach. They’ll have an easier time composing their own music correctly and pulling from the full range of notes and musical options available.

Study Great Music

When taking music theory lessons at home or in the studio, students will also be exposed to many important pieces of music. They’ll learn about these diverse pieces, why they’re considered vital, and what about their composition makes them great and prolific.

Not only will this type of study lead to a greater understanding of music and its parts, but it will also broaden students’ musical horizons. By studying music from many different time periods, composers, and musical styles, students will learn about and from music they may never have heard otherwise.

Great Great Building Blocks

If you were to search for music theory lessons online, you’d find that all good schools, all over the world, focus on one major thing. They focus on giving students the building blocks they need to become successful, skilled musicians. And, while there aren’t a ton of options for learning musical theory in the area, we’re all you need. We have our focus in the right place: on growth.

Consider, for example, how our musical theory students learn about chord progressions. Once they’ve got those down, they’ll be better able to understand scales, phrases, and more, as well as how they all work together. One lesson or skill leads into another until the end result is a better, more well-rounded, and more adept musician.
