Ari's Music Theory Summer Cohort Open

Ari has started doing these music cohort things. It is basically like a proper online course You have assigned homework every week, peer groups, etc. I’ve been wanting to do it for awhile, but it was full and I was waiting for next January. They now have some openings for a new one starting in June. The plan is to only do them twice a year. I’ve signed up to this one starting in June. Just FYI, it is $540, but I know it will be worth it for me personally, because I struggle with just a book and self-learning when it comes to music theory. I also think when you weigh that against the cost of private lessons, it is worth it.

I get invited to join frequently, but just can’t get myself to get involved with anything that has even a hint of structure.
Retirement does that to you.
I’m certain this program is great, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

Yeah, everyone is different. My life is so chaotic now that without some structure, nothing gets done. I bought the book and paid for her self-paced course 6 weeks ago, but am still only half-way through the first unit. Hoping this gives me the kick in the bum that I need.

I still remember my first test on the scales in Grade School Band. I put down A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H.
Still haven’t found that H note.

As an aside, I’m used to the Treble Clef notation: E,G,B,D,F, and F,A,C,E for the spaces.
Now, in Bass Clef, it has me relearning the scales.
Groovy.

Yeah, as I learned it long ago: in treble clef, it’s Every Good Boy Does Fine.

In the bass clef, it’s Good Boys Do Fine Always.
