    Arrow BASIC MUSIC THEORY - GOOD STARTING POINT

    Check this out, if anyone wants to know the basics of music theory:


    http://www.musictheory.net/


    There are lessons, exercises, and ear training. It is well suited to the beginner.

    Very cool. If anything, just to print out staff paper. But very helpful.

    Why is it that all these people with music backgrounds go into computer programming? I thought Miliken, where Ricci went, has a good music theather and business program?

    I think Music may be ahead of the curve on education, which is bad for those with just a Bachelor's. Most Universities require at least a Master's degree now, and they prefer a Doctorate.

    That is why by fall semester 2006, I will be getting my Masters somewhere come hell or high water.

    You lost me. I guess my question is; 'If Ricci has a great background, from a school like Miliken that has the programs I mentioned above, why programming?

    This may mean not much to some but I always had a problem remembering ledger lines above and below the treble and bass staffs. A professor taught me that I would always know what the three are above the treble staff because they spell the word ACE. Subsequently, the same goes for below the bass, ACE. Sounds elementary and maybe it is but I never have a problem anymore.

    Just for grins.

    I have the students checking this out now. Thanks for the post.

    If you have students, I highly recommend Practica Musica (if you can still find it).

    It is a piece of software which is an excellent Theory tutorial.

    A friend of mine (who has her doctorate) teaches piano and all of her students have to complete Music Theory lessons. It just makes them better players.
