Designed to dovetail with THE ROOTS songwriting curriculum, Music Theory & Ear Training Level 1 equips the songwriter with a foundational understanding of harmony, melody, rhythm, and phrasing in the construction of songs. Learn to recognize chord changes and intervals by ear and come to understand how the songs you love fit together and how the songs you write might better become the songs you love.
ROOTS students present or past take $25 off the tuition by entering the code ROOTStheory (no space, case-sensitive). If you have any difficulty, please e-mail info @ the songwriting school dot com.
