At its core, music is little more than sound articulated through various shifts and pauses, patterns, and repetitions. While music notation is not a prerequisite of playing music, basic knowledge of notation can help musicians and music lovers alike to more deeply understand music, its history, and influence.

Fundamentals of Music Theory is an online course offered by Coursera presented by The University of Edinburgh. Taught by musicians and educators Dr. Michael Edwards, Dr. Zach Moir, Richard Worth, Dr. Nikki Moran, Eli Appleby-Donald, and Dr. John Philip Kitchen, the course provides key terminology for looking at and understanding musical notation.
