If you can read newspapers, write e-mails, why can't you read notes and play or sing from them?
Do you need an instrument to be able to read musical notes?
Is music literacy required for music theory?
What is music theory? Why would anyone want to study music theory?
Would ukulele players benefit from learning to read notes? Isn't it easier to read tabs? Is it enough just reading from tablature? How easy is it to learn to read notes if you already know how to read tabs?
What are the building blocks of music?
Most workshops give you the how and what of music. If you start asking WHY questions, you're ready to take a music theory class.
This workshop will give you a taste of music theory and help you decide if you're ready (and meet the pre-requisites) to take an 8 week course in Zoom. The workshop in Zoom is open to anyone who is curious --- no no need to play any instrument or sing.
The workshop is an introduction to the new Music Theory Harmony course which starts on 3/23/2021 and runs for 8 weeks in Zoom.

Feedback from students
The Online Pluck class via Zoom was great! We had the opportunity to learn many things relating to Fingerstyle Ukulele; exercises, techniques, and songs! Anne works very hard to enrich her classes to reach a lot of different folks across the world! The recordings have been very helpful as well!!! I never came away without having new tidbits to work on for the next week’s class!
Anne is a great teacher. She was helpful with practical advice, including ways to make a difficult passage more playable. She's also incredibly adept at explaining concepts of music theory so that an untrained strummer like me could benefit. The course was exactly as described. I've been playing uke for about a year with no formal music education. She really makes it fun!
I thoroughly enjoyed your Beginning Music Theory course. I liked the interactive way you teach and replaying class videos helped to reinforce understanding of each topic. The class has already helped me with reading sheet music. I look forward to the next level of the course.
