Tavistock Tutors offer music theory tutors at all levels in the London area. Music theory is the study of how music is written and played. It distils and analyses the fundamental parameters or elements of music rhythm, harmony (harmonic function), melody, structure, form, and texture. It is crucial for anyone wishing to learn the practical art of playing a musical instrument. It is often referred to as the foundations upon which the house is built and is part of the examination for each grade. Music theory might not be the reason why anyone takes up a musical instrument but is the reason why many give up. It also finds its way onto many university music courses as well, and can be the bane of a practical musicians life. With help from Tavistock Tutors, you can achieve your theoretical goals quickly and easily. Therefore, you can get onto the far more interesting tasks of playing and enjoying your instrument.
As an academic subject, music theory varies enormously from the basics to more advanced levels. The basics include reading and understanding music and recognising notes, all of the things that you simply cannot do without if you want to play to any standard. The more complex training of the eyes and ears, time signatures, intervals dots and ties and scores are designed for those wishing to make music or composition their career. Assessment can take many forms, from written exams, practical demonstrations to basic composition. Due to the depth of knowledge required and variety of different forms assessment can take, it is almost inevitable that a student will struggle at some point. That is where Tavistock Tutors can offer assistance.
