Welcome to Pre Composition 1


Program Information

The Farabius Academy of Music offers group sessions for those who want to learn how to compose music. We would love to help you learn music composition with our certified educators. We offer group lessons through an innovative and engaging curriculum for our students. Our unique approach to musical education facilitates a fast and practical learning experience for students.

Music theory is a tool to help students create, understand, and communicate music. In this program, students will learn the skills necessary for success as a composer. You will learn the fundamentals of music theory and the basic building blocks of music that form harmony, melody, and rhythm. You also will be prepared to study harmony and counterpoint in Music Composition 2. Students who attend this course will learn how to transcribe music and write down in notation form their own melody creatively.

There will also be weekly theory and practical assignments, allowing you to practice more writing. In these assignments, you will get real-life practice using the information and techniques learned to write your own melody. We do monthly assessments, which is a necessary part of the learning process; it helps us measure whether our students have really learned what we want them to learn.

Each online lesson takes place between one teacher and up to 6 students. Each session lasts 2 hours (Music theory 60 minutes, solfege 60 minutes.)



We can help you understand music theory to a new level and make you a better composer. Our goal is the development of our students to their highest musical level through group lessons.

In this semester, you will learn how to read music using proven techniques, play and count rhythms accurately, pitch names, clefs, identifying notes on the keyboard, form in music notation, scale degrees, writing melodies with major scales, building triads (chords), finding chords by formula, compound meter signatures, 7th chords, triplets, doublets, relative minor keys, dominant 7th chords, analyzing melodies, accidentals, Intervals, diatonic chord progressions in minor, solfege, and much more.
