TOP REVIEWS FROM GETTING STARTED WITH MUSIC THEORY
A great course to understand Music in a technical way. Has not just helped me understand the concepts but also has inspired me to learn an instrument and apply the concepts.
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.)
Thank you so much! This course is amazing, it gives you so many information about basics of music theory and foundation for further learning.
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.
