This an hour-long GROUP music theory class with three parts: Prep 1 Rudiments, Prep 2 Rudiments and Basic Rudiments. Students who play ANY musical instrument will be introduced to the beginning level of music theory.

The class starts with the theoretic foundation building step by step as it completes the requirements of the Preparatory Rudiments.
