Music Theory

Music theory is the study of how music works. It examines the language and notation of music. It seeks to identify patterns and structures in composers' techniques across or within genres, styles, or historical periods. In a grand sense, music theory distills and analyzes the fundamental parameters or elements of music—rhythm, harmony (harmonic function), melody, structure, form, texture, etc. Broadly, music theory may include any statement, belief, or conception of or about music.

General music helps younger students understand the basic principles of music, such as melody, beat and tempo. Simple instruments like bongos, maracas and tambourines are introduced and used during songs.

Althea is the founder of a drum circle facilitation program for children.
