There is one thing all great classical composers and jazz/pop arrangers have in common: they have a good working knowledge of counterpoint. In this course, you will learn everything you need to write proper, academic counterpoint. In addition, you'll learn some cool contrapuntal tricks like inversion and imitation.

This course is suitable for both complete beginners to composition and advanced musicians/composers who find they are lacking in counterpoint knowledge. The only prerequisite is that you should be able to read music notation. This course is particularly useful for pop/jazz musicians. In these genres, people with proper contrapuntal skills can be hard to come by, so by learning these skills you can put yourself apart from the crowd.

For almost every lecture, there will be one or more exercises. These exercises can be sent to the instructor in order to have them checked personally. (!) This is a rare feature for online courses. If you are currently following composition in university, this course can be a great help since it provides a clear overview of the topic and you can get your homework checked by the instructor before you hand it in.

A Complete College-Level Music Theory Curriculum. This is Part 3: Minor keys, Circle of Fifths, and Compound Meters.

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.

Recently I was named as a semi-finalist for the Grammy Foundation's Music Educator of the Year award because of my in-person university classes. Now I'm taking those classes to Udemy in an online format in order to reach more students, and give them the joy of Music Theory.

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.

This class is a Comprehensive class - it will have many parts, going through my entire annual curriculum.

Take your knowledge and skills to the next level: minor keys, chords, figured bass, Roman numerals, meter and rhythm.

This Intermediate Course is the second of a series of courses that take the student from the very beginnings of musical understanding to getting an "A" in a college music theory class. You do not have to be a college student to take this course, but by the time you finish the series, it will be as if you had taken several semesters of classes. If you are going to take college music classes, this series will save you a considerable amount of stress and maybe even some tuition money.

The Fundamentals Course covers Pitch, Staff Notation, the Piano Keyboard, Modes, Major Scales and Key Signatures.

The Intermediate Course covers Intervals, Minor Keys and Scales, Triads, Seventh Chords, Figured Bass, Roman Numeral Analysis, Time Signatures, Meter, Rhythm, Melodic Dictation

The Advanced Course covers 4-part voice leading and musical analysis.

The Lectures can be viewed in an afternoon. However, as with many subjects, it is the consistent practice that internalizes the knowledge so that it becomes second nature. To this end I have included dozens of worksheets and audio files for practice with each lesson. Working with a friend, parent, or partner can be very effective in keeping this practice motivated.

You will need a printer and an MP3 player of some kind to do the practice work. Having a piano keyboard nearby to practice on will also greatly accelerate learning. Mastery of the the complete series may take as little as six months or as long as two years. The Intermediate Course is normally taught in 18-36 weeks.
