Learn Music...Like I do...

I made a late entry into the world of Music. Better late than never...
As I learn more  and more, I get more fascinated by it.  If you too are interested, you can also start learning...

I can provide you information on some good web sites on Music theory(Western Music). with Interactive multimedia sessions, they will help you to have a basic idea of Music:

You need a systematic training in Music???

Well... then you should think of studying music from any music institute, which conducts the courses as per the syllabus of premier institutions like Trinity college of London

Once you enroll into any such local institutes, where you learn music as per Trinity College, you will go through a grade system. It starts from, Initial, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade4, grade5, grade 6, grade 7, grade 8, ATCL, LTCL and FTCL. Every grade will have theory examinations and practical examinations. Practical examination will be based on the instrument you choose to study.
