About the Course

ALL THE MUSIC… IN SIX WEEKS!

A laid-back music theory course for anyone working in the studio environment.

We will cover:

  • The “elements” of music – rhythm, harmony and melody,

  • Time signatures, note values, etc.,

  • Drums and percussion in music productions; how rhythm can be used on ANY instruments to make parts more interesting,

  • The 12 notes of the modern chromatic scale, and how they are used to create major, minor and modal scales. How these are used in modern music,

  • What is the “key”? How key signatures define the major and minor keys,

  • Making triads in your chosen key, and how to extend these to make more interesting harmonies,

  • Chord sequences and key modulation,

  • Dynamics.
