Music Theory 101

Developed by Juilliard faculty member Dr. Steven Laitz, this Music Theory 101 online course teaches you the foundations of music theory from a classical music perspective in an engaging and straightforward manner.

In six weeks, you will develop the knowledge of music theory needed to become a better player and feel more confident writing for any musical genre - from classical to rock to electronic music.

You'll learn the fundamentals of reading sheet music, including pitch, rhythm, and key signatures. You'll explore rhythm and pitch, major and minor keys, and learn how they combine to create a melody. Finally, you'll expand your newfound knowledge and learn to write a simple melody of your own.
