What you are going to learn

Traditionally, music theory is taught with a piano as the main tool to learn the concepts.

In this class, we take music theory concepts and apply them to the the Ableton Push controller. Using the Push, we can find the patterns for chords, harmony, and intervals that will get you producing, songwriting, or composing with the Ableton Push.  
This class will use the classic Push "1", but all the patterns are the same if you are using the newer "Push 2".

For the best success in this course, it is recommended students have already taken the other Music Theory for Electronic Musician classes. They are:  

   • Music Theory for Electronic Musicians I  
   • Music Theory for Electronic Musicians II: Minor Keys and More

Course reviews

The course is basic but it gave me many insights. Right during the course I got how to play simple melodies and the understanding what I am doing. I recommend the course for all the beginners to get the Push better.
