This Online Learning Environment unit (OLE) provides a grounding in music notation and music theory. It is designed for those without a background in these areas. The music theory relates to our contemporary western music notation system. An understanding of how music theory works is extremely useful to a range of diverse disciplines that engage with music. Examples include games and user interface designers, film and drama studies students and those who have learnt musical practice from an aural rather than notated tradition, such as contemporary popular musicians and singers.
