    Brendan Marsh United Kingdom Very informative. Having previously studied for some advanced Music Theory exams, this course was very useful revision (some of it was even new to me) and it also gave me a good idea of how to explain bits of music theory to others. 2015-08-14 22:08:06

    Daniel Kochanik United Kingdom Very detailed course in my view. I went to musical school (classical) at the age of 6, and the basic theory was taught during first 4 years. So I would say that this course covers at least first two years. 2015-05-30 20:05:47
