(I just noticed that I'm WAY behind on blogging the class. I'll catch up soon, I promise. In the meantime please contact me if you have urgent questions.)

On this Tuesday we must have talked a lot about the circle of fifths. I introduced Worsheet #5 which is due Tues 9/19.

I also announced that Theory Quiz #1 will happen on Tues, 9/26.

Homework #3: Piano Notes, Whole Steps, and Half Steps

This worksheet quizzes you about the notes on the piano, and it asks you to count out two small distances (half steps vs. whole steps).

Due date was this class, Tues, Sept 12.

Worksheet #4: Constructing Major Scales

This is our hot new worksheet, which asks you to make a bunch of scales (probably using the WWHWWWH method.) It asks you to present them in a few different ways.

For review you could look at Chapter 8 in our theory anthology. Due date is next Friday, 10/15.

Worksheet #5: Scales, key signatures, and the dot

Worksheet #5 packs in a few more topics that we need before the quiz. This includes key signatures and the circle of fifths (covered in Chapter 9 of our theory anthology) and dotted rhythms (covered in Chapter 7).

This one is due next Tuesday, Sept 19.
