TOP REVIEWS FROM GETTING STARTED WITH MUSIC THEORY
This course was a great way to get into music theory. It does help if you have some background knowledge first but a little more study and you'll be just fine anyway.
Nicely taught by the teacher. Excellent for Beginners. But since most, if not all, of the things were new for me, it took time to digest and practice those.
This is a great course to have proper basic unterstanding of music theory. It would be better to allow submission of quizes without upgrade.
This course was very helpful as i earned a basic knowledge of music theory...........and also it is the best for the beginners who are keen in learning music.
