Back in 1998, Easy Music Theory was a website that I developed to help my own high school music students. If I recall correctly, it started with eight lessons, meant to cover Royal Conservatory Grade 1. Over the years, I kept adding to the list of lessons, addressing the diminishing time we music teachers had at school to properly teach the rudiments of music.
Now, Easy Music Theory with Gary Ewer is a 25-lesson video-based course. Once you've completed Lesson 25, you have the same music theory knowledge that students auditioning for most music colleges need to have.
Easy Music Theory contains:
You do not need a teacher to do this course. It is meant to be self-directed, and any student from high school age onward should be able to complete the lessons and understand the materials with a minimal amount of assistance.
Teachers can use the materials with their own students, and I have used it myself in the classroom, at junior high (age 12-15), senior high (age 15-18) as well as with my foundational university students who need some brushing up.
