The most important basic subjects that should be mastered are: 3 and 4 part chords, major and minor scales (natural, harmonic, melodic) in all keys, intervals, key signatures, time signatures, basic harmony, reading music, and ear training.

Use upper case letters for note names, # for sharp, b (lower case B) for flat, space between each note ex: C E F# Bb. Use lower case for interval description (major, minor, etc) and numeric for the actual interval. ex: major 3rd, perfect 5th, minor 7th.
