Intermediate Music Theory and Harmony This intensive and engaging eight week series we will explore Music Theory and Harmony from a practical “working musician’s” point of view. The course is specifically aimed at players who:
Wish to write and record their own music Wish to communicate effectively with players of other instruments Have the desire to study music at the college level Wish to have the ability to learn a piece of music just by listening to it
During our eight weeks together, topics covered will include: The Chromatic Scale Major Scale Construction / Key Signatures Diatonic Harmony/ Harmonization of Scales and Their Use Harmonic Analysis / Chord Substitution Basic Ear Training Skills Notation Essentials Transcription Techniques Song Form and Structure Song Analysis / Writing Techniques And Much More…
In this course, we will “get under the hood” of some of today’s most popular songs of your choosing and discuss how and why they work. We will discuss how this knowledge directly relates to a variety of musical professions outside of performance…Writing for TV, Film Scoring, Studio work, Arranging, Composing and more.
I look forward to seeing you in class! Kevin Gilmore
