The goal of this blog is to make music theory accessible to all musicians. Many of you will find some lessons to be super basic, and you are welcome to skim or skip stuff you already know. For the sake of being thorough, we will start with the most elementary parts of music theory. We will tie these basics into the truth of the bible to build a foundation we can grow from. Each session will include three sections:
1. Scripture – How music and the bible correlate.
2. Pitch & Note Reading – How to read black dots on 5 lines and make music.
3. Rhythms – How to know how long to play notes and work out hard rhythms.
Each section will include a short lesson, and if applicable, some practice sheets and quizzes to help solidify the information in your mind. Knowing something as well as you know how to spell “cat” allows you to stop worrying about playing and free up your mind and heart to worship.
Please DO NOT hesitate to email me with any questions. I would be ecstatic to get several emails each lesson with questions – it helps you learn and me feel like you care about what I’m doing.
So thank you for caring, and enjoy!
