Welcome! If you were active on the gdt, you may have seen my post about a possible music school here on the forum. I’m super passionate about music and I think music theory is something more people (especially musicians) should be educated on. That being said, if you’re a musician I encourage you to take a formal music theory course at your school!
The purpose of this topic is to share my knowledge of music construction and to find ways to compose or transcribe music with the software Hopscotch offers. I tentatively plan to have a new lesson every Tuesday or so, and a new coding challenge every Thursday.
However, the content of these lessons will depend on how much you already know about music. Therefore, I took a placement exam from Bowling Green State University and coded a pre-test for you all! Please answer all questions using your own brain, as I will form lessons based on your skill set, not Google’s. You can take it at the link below.
Once you’ve taken the test, reply with your score and a short summary of your music experience. How long have you been involved with music? How are you involved with music (instruments, choir, dance, composing, etc.)? How does music speak to you?
Also, if you have any name/theme suggestions for this school (like how NaF follows a chemistry theme) I’d be happy to take them.
Thanks so much! Once I have everyone’s scores, we can get started with lessons. I’m really looking forward to it!
