This is the third course in the Music Theory Classroom curriculum.
- This course is for students who has already learned the fundamentals of music, including intervals, triads and seventh chords.
- If you have not mastered these topics, you should start by taking the Fundamentals of Melody and Harmony course.
- It is also assumed that the student can read and write rhythmic notation in the most common time signatures.
- If you aren’t sure about your ability to do that, you should begin with at least the first two parts of the Fundamentals of Rhythm course.

The four courses in the curriculum include: two Fundamentals courses which are intended to be taken concurrently, followed by Diatonic Harmony and then Chromatic Harmony. Each course has 28 lessons, so the recommended pace is approximately two lessons per week.
