TOP REVIEWS FROM FUNDAMENTALS OF MUSIC THEORY
I enjoyed the course and have learnt a lot. There seems to be a bit of a leap at the end of week 5 where the modulation analysis suddenly becomes more complex than the material before it.
I loved this course. I learned a lot about music theory, so now when I play my instrument and read the sheet music, I not only understand the notes but also the reasons behind them.
As a Buzzok player and a software engineer, this course encourages me to play on my instrument differently and to think in a new web application for music discipline !!
Thank you very much
This was a great class, but some of the information could have been more comprehensive, and some of the questions on the tests did not match the information from the lectures.
