Music Theory for Recorder

Music theory is the technical explanation of how composers create music. This branch of study includes the fundamentals: pitch usage, the music notation system, rhythm, and harmony, among many more topics. A good understanding of these technical matters not only improves both your skill as a musician, but also your enjoyment of the music.

This series does not 'start from scratch' and assumes that the recorderist is familiar with the bass and treble clefs, understands the basics of how rhythm is notated, and knows the fingerings for the various pitches on their recorder(s) of choice.
