TOP REVIEWS FROM FUNDAMENTALS OF MUSIC THEORY
If you don't know much about music theory, it's going to be pretty challenging, and still is reachable. You learn as much as you want with this courses. I'm glad I could finish it.
It was a very nice course. We were able to understand the basics of music theory and how the notations and chords work. Thank you so much to the entire staff of Edinburgh University and Coursera..:-)
The course was very good and the instructors excellent. I played trumpet and bass so I was able to keep up in the beginning, but it became progressively more challenging. Well done.
Good course for beginners in music theory.
Week 3 session is so much concise with no example.
Week 3 session should be more elaborative and reading material should be there.
