There are various ways of counting the beats per minute (bpm) of your music and when you take this course, you�ll understand why it's so important to know the tempos of all your songs.� The tutorials also cover essential basics such as music theory; note values; how to count beats, bars, and phrases in 4/4 time; and how to identify the "one."�
