MUSIC THEORY & NOTATION FOR DANCERS
Learn to break down and translate what you hear in music & rhythm onto paper via music notation in this 4-week session! Knowing how to notate what you hear is an incredible valuable skill for dancers and instructors.
Amira will introduce basic musical terms and teach you how to notate music and easily identify simple to complex rhythmic patterns. We will be studying 10-16 common (and not so common) middle eastern rhythms in simple and complex time signatures. Students can expect to learn to identify & notate these rhythms by themselves as well as within a melodic musical frame in popular bellydance songs.
