Music Theory for Beginners, Learning Music is Easier Than Ever!

eMedia Music Theory Tutor Volume 1 features over 230 engaging music theory lessons that teach with images, audio, interactive tests, and practical music theory. It’s is the ideal approach to learning music theory for beginners. An Intelligent Practice offers optimized practice sessions based on your responses and skill level to help you learn music theory elements such as rhythm, melody, and harmony.

eMedia Music Theory Tutor shows you when you are playing or singing the correct pitches in a lesson and lets you see your progress. Many lessons let you respond by humming, singing, or playing your instrument into the computer's microphone. Tap rhythms, sing back melodies, guess intervals, and much more! Gain confidence as you pass each music theory quiz at the end of a subject and ace tests at the end of every grade level completion. Learn how to read music, basic chord theory, scale theory, and the building blocks of music. Learn music theory to hear melodies, scales, intervals, chords, and rhythms in your head so you can compose without an instrument and learn songs faster.

Features include:

  • Learn music theory with a step-by-step curriculum designed by Dr. Gregory Simon, who has a Ph.D. in music composition from University of Michigan who has taught at the University of Colorado.
  • Intelligent Practice tracks your progress as you learn music theory and automatically selects questions to improve weak spots.

  • Covers rhythm fundamentals including tempo, counting beats, measures, and values for notes and rests.
  • Teaches recognition of simple and compound time signatures (including 4/4, 3/4, 9/8, and cut time).
  • Interactive music theory software for learning to read music, including clefs, note pitches, names, and note rhythmic values including dotted and beamed notes.
  • Ear training exercises to recognize note direction and motion, notes, intervals, and scales plus major, minor, and diminished chords.
  • Lessons on major and minor scale construction, and intervals (perfect fourths, fifths, tritones, etc.).
  • Music theory lessons covering the roles of melody and harmony roles, unstable notes and note resolution.
  • Chord theory lessons on creating major scale triads (major, minor, and diminished chords), chord progression theory based on the major scale, chord functions within progressions (tonic, dominant, subdominant, etc.), and the Roman numeral system (I, IV, V, etc.).
  • Solfege and sight-singing.

eMedia Music Theory Tutor Volume 1 features over 230 engaging music theory lessons that teach rhythm, melody, and harmony with images, audio, and interactivity. Learn to read music notation and how music is constructed. Train your ear to hear scales, intervals, chords, and rhythms “in your head.” These skills will help you to compose (with or without an instrument), improvise, and learn songs by ear faster.

Learn to Read & Hear Rhythms, Intervals, Scales, Chords, and Chord Progressions. Use sight-tapping to practice reading rhythms and Rhythm Imitation studies help you recognize rhythmic figures. Lessons covering interval and chord recognition help you develop a great sense of relative pitch to identify melodies, scales, chords, and progressions.

An Intelligent Practice feature tracks your progress and automatically adjusts exercises to improve your weak spots, as a real instructor would do. Want to practice something specific? Use Custom Practice and select the items you want. Gain confidence as you pass quizzes and ace tests at the end of every grade level completion.

Use Solfege to Sight-Sing and Hear the Music “In Your Head”. Build interval-singing and sight-singing skills, and you’ll know how compositions sound by simply seeing the sheet music.

Scores and Statistics Mark Your Progress Through the Course. Green checkmarks highlight correct answers, and you can retake quizzes to improve your score. With the built-in statistics, you can review your progress and test scores. You see where your answers were correct, and charts show your overall progress.
