Welcome to the COMPLETE Music Theory Fundamentals Guide!
This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take their music career (or music interest) and turn it into a business. Whether you are an active musician, an aspiring musician, or an aspiring music manager or agent - this class is perfect for you.
For years I've been teaching Music Theory in the college classroom. These classes I'm making for Udemy use the same syllabus I've used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost. I believe anyone can learn Music Theory - and cost shouldn't be a barrier.
My approach to music theory is to minimize the memorization. Most of these concepts you can learn by just understanding why chords behave in certain ways. Once you understand those concepts, you can find any scale, key, or chord that exists. Even invent your own. If you've tried to learn music theory before, or if you are just starting out - this series of courses is the perfect fit.
Throughout this class, If you get stuck, you can review the videos or post a question, and I'll back to it as fast as possible.
This class is Part 8: Harmonic Expansion. In it we will cover all the tools that composer have used to get away from the traditional diatonic chord progression, and create innovative new harmonies.
