Theoretical Concepts Woven Through Music

Western Theory

Western theory is rooted in the European musical tradition. These foundational elements include scales and modes, intervals, chord structure and progressions, as well as rhythm.

Jazz Theory

Jazz theory builds on the tenets of traditional Western Theory elements. Jazz tends to favor complex harmonic progressions and rich structures, as well as complex rhythmic nuances.
