If you love to sing and want to join a choir, pursue solo work or just get a solid grounding in musicianship, these music-reading classes are a must. Using repertoire of all styles as a base, adult students progress rapidly, gaining a practical understanding of music theory and compositional techniques along the way. All classes are taught by Liz Fleischer, hailed by New York Magazine as "one of New York's great teachers" and The New York Times as "a teacher who gets results."

Class Levels

Beginner: Intro to pitch and rhythm reading, ear-training and theory.

Intermediate I: Major and minor scales, intervals, simple modulations and functional chromatism singing rounds and part-songs.
