TOP REVIEWS FROM GETTING STARTED WITH MUSIC THEORY
Scales up quickly; difficulty peaking at the last lecture. Very demanding, but, in the end, very rewarding. (NOTE: Course material (ie terminology, etc) is culture bound to the US vice UK.)
This is a great course to have proper basic unterstanding of music theory. It would be better to allow submission of quizes without upgrade.
This course is enlightening as it digs deep into the essential basics of Music theory. I had a nice time taking this course.
The course content is excellent and is even good for intermediate students. The Instructor is very clear and lively. I learnt lots of things. Thank you, it was amazing.
