Music Theory Classes

Instructor: Carrie Gruselle Gray
Location: Lawrence Community Music School

Community Guidelines

Music theory is like the grammar of music. Just as knowing proper grammar and spelling helps you to become a better writer and communicator, knowing music theory—key signatures, time signatures, note values, intervals (and more!)—helps you become a better musician and performer. This summer, join nationally recognized teacher, clinician, and composer Mrs. Carrie Gruselle Gray for partnered theory lessons to sharpen your musical skill.
