Music Fundamentals

The Fundamentals of Music apply to all genres and every discipline of music. This course is designed to give the student a firm foundation in Basic and Advanced Music theory, like rhythm, melody, harmony, key, intervals, chords, chord progressions, song structure and more. When people think “theory”, they think boring classrooms and textbooks. Our Fundamentals course is 100% practical, meaning it’s all hands on and taught with the students production goals and preferences in mind. We teach the Fundamentals by creating music that you want to create.


At SLDP, our #1 priority with every student and every course, is 100% student satisfaction. Each course has a specific and detailed outline, and an estimated time of completion, but we realize that students may wish to spend more time, or less time on any given subject. The course outline serves as a road map to success, but our instructors are more than happy to take a few detours along the way. At any point during the process, we’re willing to put in extra hours apart from scheduled session time to help a student falling behind or struggling with a specific topic. Additionally, once you come in to SLDP, you’re part of the family, and we’re more than happy to continue giving advice and answering questions, even after your course(s) have ended. Just email us or schedule a time to stop by!
