A New Cobweb Group – Music Theory Group
Thursdays between 10.30 and 11.10 am
from the 12th November to 17th December


Many thanks for all the interest expressed in the proposals put forward by the Playing at Home group in last week’s Cobweb News.

One idea that we can progress with immediately is the Music Theory Group as we already have a tutor in the person of trumpet/horn/guitar player Richard Stamp, who will guide the group through the intricacies of time signatures, key signatures, clefs, keys, major/minor, pitch, tension and release, chords, passing notes, inversions, enharmonics, modulations, transposition, expressions marks and finally… cadences.

This is what Richard says about the sessions. “The syllabus will be based on ABRSM Grade 5-ish. I would try to chair a discussion rather than be didactic but would attempt to keep to the the subject under discussion”

The group will meet on Zoom on Thursdays between 10.30 and 11.10 am from the 12th November to 17th December and Richard will send out invitations to those who enrol. If you would like to join the group, click here to register. Places will be reserved on a strictly “first come” basis, but if you responded to the notice last week’s Cobweb News, you’re already on the list and don’t need to re-register.

There will be no charge for the sessions, but, as ever, donations will be welcome to help keep Cobwebs afloat during these challenging times.
