*This is a course for beginners as well as intermediate music learners who want to build knowledge on music theory. *
The course materials include basic definitions, practices, and interesting facts and stories about music. We will also mention the great composer J. S. Bach, as we appreciate his famous works and his genius ideas related to mathematics. The practice questions may be a little bit difficult for beginners, but through practice, you will strengthen your skills and improve your music knowledge further.
