Welcome to the COMPLETE Music Theory Guide!

This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take music theory (or music interest) and turn it into a usable skill. Whether you are an active musician or an aspiring musician, 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 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.

Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated Udemy instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes. 

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

This is a course that will dive into many areas of music theory. This series is for those who want to download or watch my series ad-free. The topics covered by this series include:

  • The science of sound (pitch, frequency, volume, etc...)
  • The musical alphabet
  • Notation
  • Clefs
  • Scales
  • Steps and intervals
  • Triads and extended chords
  • Circle of 5ths
  • Notes and rests
  • Swing and polyrhythm
  • Time signatures
  • Chord progression and harmonizing scales
  • Modes
  • Transposing
  • Transcription
  • acoustics and psychoaoustics
  • Ear training
  • and MORE!!

For musicians and students taking music classes, this course does not require that you play an instrument. We take away the aspect of an instrument and study the core of music using just notes. No need to be an expert piano player or guitarist, all you'll want to have is a little bit of thinking power and maybe a notepad to take some notes (music notes that is :P). If you are a musician, applying this information to your instrument will drastically improve your knowledge and skill level.

Even if you have no musical experience, this course could be for you. With this series, not only will you dive into the basics of music but you will also learn a lot about acoustics, ear training, pitch and frequency, harmonics and overtones, and more. Even if you are not studying to be a musician, this course has content that will help you understand sound as a whole. This means that if you are a computer technician, an audio producer, a commercial designer, a video producer, a studio designer, or anything else dealing with sound, you could benefit from this course!

The course should not take too long to complete, but it is recommended that you stop after each video to take notes and memorize material. For some topics, you might need to practice or rewatch the video a few times to get everything (there is a lot of content in this course). Try to memorize...Memorizing this content will forever impact your musical knowledge and make you enjoy music that much more!

Welcome to the MUSIC THEORY FOR ELECTRONIC MUSIC COMPLETE Guide!

This course is a combination of all three of my Music Theory for Electronic Musicians classes: Music Theory for Electronic Musicians, and Music Theory for Electronic Musicians 2, and Music Theory for Electronic Musicians 3. 

In this class, we learn how to work with the piano roll editor in a DAW to make harmonies, melodies, and whole tracks, and then we expand on those ideas and work with harmonic patterns (harmony) that is richer than just major and minor. 

Production Techniques Through Theory The most important part of this class is an extensive foray into using these techniques in actual tracks. I'll be creating 9 tracks through this class, right along with you, each using a different technique so you can see exactly how I incorporate it right into my music.

Full Sessions After each production project, I'll give you the whole session of what I made using the techniques for you to play with. You can download it, expand on it, re-work it, and even release it as your work.

If Your Music is Missing Something, This is Probably It. If you are finding that you are writing track after track, and while they sound good, there is something they are missing - then this it. You are missing the sense of harmony that professional producers have. In this class, I'll arm you with all the tools you need to produce those tracks just like you imagine them.

Who should take this course?  
Anyone interested in producing their own music. This will get you up and running and give your tracks a unique sound in no time.

Structure 
This course consists of video lectures, which all contain a session in Ableton Live 9. If you are using a different program (or none at all), no worries! This isn't a class on how to use Ableton Live, and the concepts can be applied to any DAW.

Some of the step-by-step guides in this course will be:

  • Finding notes, chords, and keys in your audio program

  • The 7 intervals and how to put them together

  • The steps to finding the key of your track (or any track!)

  • The most common chord progressions

  • The steps to using inversions to take your track from good to amazing.

  • The 4 types of 7th chords

  • The top techniques for writing a melody to fit a chord progression (and vice-versa!)

  • The 7 modes and their uses

  • 19 Exotic scales and how to use them (include MIDI files!)

The course is a roadmap to finding the missing piece in your tracks, or just getting started making great tracks.

All the tools you need to make, produce, and start your music career are included in this course, and the entire course is based on real-life experiences - not just academic theory.

Beginner Strumming 15-Video Digital Course

Acoustic or Electric

Created by Guitar Jamz Guitar Lessons -

Students: 18299, Price:  Free

Who are you?

Hey guys, my name is Tim Gilberg, and I'm the founder and president of Guitar Jamz, which for nearly ten years has been one of the Web's leading guitar instruction portals. We've taught tens of thousands of guitar students around the world with an all-star roster of instructors.  

The best known among those popular teachers is Marty Schwartz. Marty teaches this course and has a massively loyal fan base because he has a way of breaking every technique down to its smallest piece ... and he always keeps it FUN in the process.

This approach has resulted in nearly a billion worldwide views on our various online channels, but what's most important is the feedback we get every day from our students. They regularly report "a-ha" moments and exclamations of, "Wow, I can finally play that!" all because of the detailed, step-by-step nature of Marty's lessons. This is especially true for beginner guitarists — even those who feel they don't have a musical bone in their body.

Now let me tell you about this course. It's called "Beginner Strumming Secrets," and it's absolutely perfect if you're just starting out for guitar.  The lessons are shown with an acoustic guitar, but you can use an electric guitar if you wish.

What's this course about, exactly?

This 15-video lesson series is the perfect supplement to a beginner guitar course. How? By teaching you how to strum easily and naturally. You'll be taught a variety of common strum patterns, and you'll be shown how to play them in a free-wheeling manner. You'll also be given ways to spice up your strumming by learning special enhancements such as palm muting, rhythmic slapping, chucking, and picking. You'll also learn about all the elements that fit into strumming, such as what a measure is, and what the different types of notes are.

What will I be able to do by the end of this course?

Simply put, you'll be able to strum you guitar in an easy, free-wheeling way. Do you ever wonder how experienced players can strum their guitars in such a relaxed and care-free manner, as if playing their instrument was as easy and natural as breathing?  Well, this course helps get you there.

Is this course for me?

This course if for you if you're just starting out on guitar.  It will be helpful if you know just a few of the simple chords starting out. No knowledge of music theory is necessary. This is a basic course on strumming. While it's probably too basic if you are already an intermediate player, the lessons do give some helpful strumming techniques and practice exercises if you feel you would like your strumming to flow more naturally.

Why should I take this course?

Look, there's already a ton of lessons online that show you how to play chords ... how to change chords ... but it's really hard to find pinpointed instruction on how to specifically improve the quality of your strumming.  This is a very focused course on a very specific — and crucial — technique: strumming. Strumming naturally and easily is a goal of every guitar player, and this course will help get you there

    Hi there, my name is Shervin House. I am a Violin Instructor, and I am certified in the Advanced Rudiments of Music Theory & Harmony by the Royal Conservatory of Music.

    Have you always wondered how music is made, or have you ever aspired to one day write your own song? In this course you will learn everything that you will need to know about Music Theory, starting from the very basics and covering everything up to the Advanced Music Theory material, as categorized by the RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music).

    • Jack: "Very thorough, everything is explained clearly and using visuals to make the learning experience easier. Loved the course, could not be happier. I would recommend it to anyone"

    This course is for beginners. You don't need to know anything about Music Theory in order to follow along. In fact we even cover how to read music from the basics in the first unit in order to make sure everyone is able to keep up without any prior knowledge. Furthermore, you can learn and follow the material regardless of what instrument you play; whether you play the piano, the guitar, the violin, or any other instrument.

    You will learn how elements such as the key signature and the time stamp can be used as powerful tools in writing music, and how they will set up a blueprint for our song. You will discover how to construct chords, how to write melodies, how to begin and end phrases, how to adjust your music based on the instrument you want to use or the key you wish you play in, and much more..

    • Ben: "Easy to follow, clear, engaging, thorough. If you want to learn music theory, this instructor is your guy"

    By the end of this course, you will have a complete understanding of the fundamentals of music theory, as well as gaining the ability to start composing songs like a pro. My aim with this course was to break down all of these complicated concepts and explain them by using visuals and piano keys, so that you will have a far easier time wrapping your head around these confusing topics; in short, I will take you by the hand and walk you through all of these fundamentals step by step.

    • Jamie: "This was a very in depth and interesting course. I didn't know much about Music Theory, but I was able to follow along no problem. Definitely recommend it.."

    What can you expect from this course?

    • The most in depth music theory course online

    • All the basics covered, material such as how to read music, how rhythm works, etc.

    Welcome to Music Composition 101: Fundamentals, Principals, and Myths. The complete guide to getting started in music composition.

    This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take their music career (or music interest) and develop it into something more. Whether you are an active musician or an aspiring musician, this class is perfect for you.

    When most people think of a composer, they imagine someone sitting in a dusty attic with a grand piano, a big white wig, and the year is 1800. That might have been accurate back then, but the modern composer is just like you and me. In fact, I am one. 

    In this course, I'll show you the techniques I use for writing music in a variety of styles and situations. I've worked with major American orchestras, film studios, and video game designers, so I've got more than a little experience. I'm also a PhD in music composition and a university professor (of music composition). 

    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.

    This course starts with common misconceptions about the art of writing music. I'll give you the first one right now: You don't have to be a genius. Music Composition is a skill that can be learned, with practice.

    100% Answer Rate! Every single question posted to this class is answered within 24 hours by the instructor.

    Some of the topics we will cover in this class are: 

    • My background, and listen to some of my music

    • What you need to know

    • Myths of the composer

    • Tools of the trade: Software

    • Tools of the trade: Pencils and fine paper

    Music Composition 1

    Learn how to compose well-written rhythms and melodies

    "]

    Students: 11984, Price: $49.99

    Students: 11984, Price:  Paid

    Music Composition 1 is the first course in a series of two courses that teaches how music is put together and how to write your own music. The course is divided into two parts. Part one covers the study of rhythmic composition. Part two covers the study of melodic composition. (Harmony and form are studied in Music Composition 2) 

    Course lectures consist mainly of video but also include some text. Each section of the course covers a particular concept (or related concepts). Concepts and compositional techniques are demonstrated throughout the course with real musical examples (pictures and audio samples). 

    Besides lectures, each section of the course also contains memory questions, section quiz, listening assignments, and transcription/composition assignments. Memory questions serve to summarize and reinforce key concepts learned, while the quizzes test the students’ knowledge and understanding of the material from each section. Students who take this course will get practice transcribing music (hearing a rhythm or a melody and writing it down). In the composition assignments students will get real life practice using the information and techniques learned in each section to write their own rhythms and melodies. 

    Who should take this course? Every student of music should know how to compose! It is a sad but true fact that most modern music teachers and music courses do not include music composition as part of the students’ musical education. In the past it was typical for students of music to be able to compose music. The “complete” musician can play an instrument, has knowledge of music theory AND can also compose! If you want to deepen your understanding of music, learn to write it! 

    Course Includes:

    • 190 Diagrams and Audio Samples (to illustrate concepts taught)

    • 125 Memory Questions (to reinforce concepts taught)

    • 90 Transcription and Composition Assignments (to practice the concepts taught)

    • 76 Listening Assignments

    • 21 Quizzes

    Welcome to the COMPLETE Music Theory Guide!

    This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take music theory (or music interest) and turn it into a usable skill. Whether you are an active musician or an aspiring musician, 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 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.

    Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated Udemy instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes. 

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

    MUSIC THEORY COMPREHENSIVE COMBINED: PARTS, 10, 11, AND 12 is three courses in one: It includes my three top Music Theory Comprehensive courses: Part 10: Diminished!, Part 11: Melody & Motives, and Part 12: Secondary Dominants.

    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 (within a day). 

    In this class, we will cover:

    Did you ever feel like your sense of rhythm is not good enough? That your playing feels "sloppy" in terms of time-keeping?

    Maybe it was when you tried playing with other people, or when you were about to perform solo on stage and you noticed that you're always dragging or rushing through the chords? 

    I think that most musicians do, and not only in the first years of playing. 

    This course will be the end to this terrible, incompetent feeling.

    It never ceased to amaze me how despite the fact that rhythm is the foundation of everything in music, we tend to focus and work so much on all the other sexy things, like playing complex solos, jammin' with songs with dozens of chords, playing multiple instruments, and yet we still forget to dedicate even a tiny bit of work to the foundation of everything - our rhythm!

    When your rhythm is OFF and you're not groovin' with the song, everybody can sense it, even if not consciously. (non-musician listeners and fellow musicians alike) 

    It'll simply not be pleasant either to listen to you, or to make music with you.

    The good news are: working on your time keeping skills is the area that will give you the most fruitful "return on investment rate" of your time. 

    It's not that hard to work on it, and it does not demand a lot of time when you practice, yet the rewards are the biggest since once you do work on it - everything else that you'll play will just sound WAY BETTER. 

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    WELCOME to The Ultimate Sense of Rhythm & Time Course

    You'll also leave with the best practice routine to keep maintaining and improving your sense of time, and maybe even when you're playing a new percussion instrument of your choice!

    Music Composition 2 is the second course in a series of two courses that teaches how music is put together and how to write your own music. The course is divided into two parts. Part one covers the study of harmonic composition. Part two covers the study of compositional form. (Rhythmic and melodic composition were studied in Music Composition 1. It is highly recommended that you take Music Composition 1 before taking this course.) 

    Course lectures consist of both video and text. Each section of the course covers a particular concept (or related concepts). Concepts and compositional techniques are demonstrated throughout the course with real musical examples (pictures and audio samples). 

    Besides lectures, each section of the course also contains memory questions, section quiz, listening assignments, and composition assignments. Memory questions serve to summarize and reinforce key concepts learned, while the quizzes tests the students’ knowledge and understanding of the material from each section. Students who take this course will get practice notating music with music notation software. In the composition assignments students will get real life practice using the information and techniques learned in each section to write and develop their own harmonic progressions. By the end of the course students will have composed a number of entire pieces in various compositional forms. 

    Who should take this course? Every student of music should know how to compose! It is a sad but true fact that most modern music teachers and music courses do not include music composition as part of the students’ musical education. In the past it was typical for students of music to be able to compose music. The “complete” musician can play an instrument, has knowledge of music theory AND can also compose! If you want to deepen your understanding of music, learn to write it!

    Review from Sam: Revolutionary way to learn chord progression!

      Already knew circle of 5ths when I first learned theory,  but didn't know that it also can be used to chord progression for every  key.  

      Rosa structured the whole course in such a detail where it takes you  from a player who can't play without score to a player who can start  playing simple songs by ear. But what is more important is that you can  advance further from there by playing in different keys, exploring more  advanced chords using her concept. 

      Even if you are an advanced player, I think this course still can help  you build a solid foundation in understanding the chord progression in  more details. 

      Highly recommended!

    Music theory for complete beginners

    The fundamentals of sound in time, learn how to teach yourself to read, write basic rhythms and the skill to play them

    Created by Miguel Fajardo - Violinist

    Students: 6846, Price:  Paid

    This course is about understanding the very basis of music: sound. More precisely of sound in time. No matter what kind of instrument or musical endeavor you're interested, the most fundamental concepts are always the basics of sound in time, the rhythm.

    We take an approach to study the basics of music in a way everyone can learn with no past musical experience whatsoever.

    It is directed toward people who wants to learn music by themselves.

    We include tutorials, exercises, and dictations as our main way to understand and practice the concepts.

    Our approach is 100% practical, you should be making some rhythms from the very beginning, and have some solid skills by the end of the course.

    Is very important to take a course like this before trying to learn any instrument, or try to compose, because, you need a solid foundation that sometimes teachers don't have the time to share.

    Songwriting is fun when you understand chords!

    In this course we are going to go beyond the 6 chords and start understanding advanced songwriting technique.

    When I say beyond the 6 chords, I don't mean 6 more chords.  We are going to be studying tons and tons of chords in this course.

    This goes way beyond the 1st course in this series.

    We will go over multiple chord concepts with real examples showing how they are implemented.  We will be breaking down songs and I'll be showing you how professional songwriters use advanced chord concepts.

    You should take this course if you have an interest in how songs are created and if you're interested in songwriting.

    I hope to see you on the inside!

    Orchestration 1: Compose Orchestral Music for Strings

    Learn to write for orchestral instruments properly and unleash the epic power of the orchestra in your work

    It's time to learn orchestration and use the massive sound of the orchestra in your compositions, while fully knowing what you are doing!

    Do you want to use the power of the orchestra in your compositions? Do you want that big and full orchestral sound, but aren't sure where to begin? Ever fiddled around with orchestral plugins, without truly knowing how to actually write for the instrument?

    Orchestration is much more than just selecting a VST and blindly composing away. There are many things you need to consider as the orchestrator. 

    How do you make this line stand out? Which instrument should you select to play the melody, which technique for the chords and harmony? How do you make this section softer without actually writing pianissimo?

    Orchestration is the art of blending instruments and their techniques together. It is about careful selection of techniques, taking into consideration the instrument's natural strengths and weaknesses, tone and timbre. Which string should be used to play a mellow part, what articulation will achieve the lightest accompaniment?

    Orchestration often seems like a complicated and daunting topic, but it doesn't have to be. This course will simplify things down and take you by the hand in learning orchestration and instrumentation.

    Orchestration and Instrumentation are two topics that go hand in hand, and we'll be studying both.

    We will learn every articulation and technique available for the stringed instruments, with colourful examples to help you remember everything. You will hear audio samples and see the notation for each technique as we get fully acquainted with all the articulations the string family has to offer.

    We will be studying real orchestral scores from the great composers so you can see the concepts and techniques in action, analyse and break them down.

    Finally, in the practical section of the course we will go step-by-step and you will compose and orchestrate your own full composition for strings.

    By the end of this course, you will understand the string family completely and be able to analyse string works, use any string articulation and technique in your compositions, know how to orchestrate for strings, all the while composing through an orchestrator's perspective.

    At the end of the course series you will be able to fully write for orchestra and use each of the four families: Strings, Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion.

    The Orchestra is a powerful tool, an essential tool in the arsenal of the composer or producer. Don't limit yourself by not being able to properly compose for orchestra. 

    Let's begin learning orchestration today, starting with the strings, and you will become a proficient orchestrator and orchestral music composer in no time.

    Piano Chords

    Learn to interpret chord symbols at the piano, using classics such as "Hallelujah", "Always On My Mind", etc.

    "After buying loads of books on piano chords nothing has come close to this excellent course … it has to be the best on Udemy" - Michael Fallon

    "Even if you already know your scales and chords, this course brings you through the variations so that you can do more than just play a triad each and every time." - Richard

    This course teaches you how to interpret basic chord symbols at the piano, and explains them:

    • at the keyboard
    • in a visual and intuitive way
    • using real pieces of music

    I'll teach you concepts using original techniques that I've tested on hundreds of students over a decade, including signed artists and other industry professionals. By the end you'll know many ways of playing any chord symbol that's likely to crop up in popular music. (I'm working on a follow-up course that teaches more advanced chords that you find in jazz.)

    What this course is

    This course shows you many ways of playing:

    • major triads (e.g. C, Eb, F#)
    • minor triads (e.g. Dm, Fm, G#m)
    • sus chords (e.g. Esus, Gsus, Bbsus)
    • 7th chords (e.g. F#7, Am7, Cmaj7), and
    • slash chords (e.g. Ab/Eb, Bm/E, Dmaj7/E)

    so that you can:

    • read a "lead sheet" (a score with a melody and chord symbols but no LH)
    • accompany yourself singing using just chord symbols, and
    • understand how the chord symbols fit a score

    I'll show you many ways of playing each chord so that you can not only work out what chord to play but also turn it into a complete accompaniment.

    What this course isn't

    This course doesn't teach you how to play the piano - it assumes you know how to play the piano already. And the pieces used are mostly extracts that are designed to illustrate certain types of chord, so the goal isn't to play complete pieces but to acquire skills that you can apply to other pieces.

    Also, this isn't a music composition course: I don't talk very much about why certain chords sound good together. However, if you are interested in learning about chord progressions this is a good starting point.

    In conclusion

    So, if you've ever wondered what Dm7/G means then give this course a try! You can always get a refund if you decide it isn't for you.

    Best of luck on your musical journey,

    Benedict
