Intermediate Music Skills – Ages 9 & Up

This class is recommended for students with 3 or more years of private music lessons.

For young musicians with several years of experience, this expands on the concepts introduced in the beginner class, as well as introducing scales, chords, and harmony. We also begin to analyze pieces of music from various periods and styles, from both a harmonic and historical perspective. Enrollment in this class must be approved by the instructor.
