Music Theory
Music
Music
theory is the study of the practices and possibilities of music. The Oxford Companion to Music
Music
describes three interrelated uses of the term "music theory":The first is what is otherwise called 'rudiments', currently taught as the elements of notation, of key signatures, of time signatures, of rhythmic notation, and so on. [...] The second is the study of writings about music from ancient times onwards. [...] The third is an area of current musicological study that seeks to define processes and general principles in music — a sphere of research that can be distinguished from analysis in that it takes as its starting-point not the individual work or performance but the fundamental materials from which it is built.[1] Music
Music
theory is frequently concerned with describing how musicians and composers make music, including tuning systems and composition methods among other topics

Gehlhaar is the son of a German rocket scientist, who emigrated to the United States in 1953 to work at a rocket-development research centre in New Mexico (Montague 2001; Schürmann 1976, 20). Although he took an interest in music from the age of eight or younger, in the post-war years the family could not afford for him to learn an instrument, and so Rolf only began to play the piano at the age of fifteen, and at about the same time began to compose for fun (Schürmann 1976, 20). He took American citizenship in 1958 and studied at Yale University
