Udemy Usable Music Theory Part 1: Harmony and Chord Progressions TUTORiAL
This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to quickly get their musical ideas out of their heads and into the world. From aspiring singer-songwriters to music contractors to anyone who has ever taken a piano, bass or guitar lesson but still feels like there are holes in their useable understanding of music theory!

We live in an exciting time where anyone with a PC or Mac can create and distribute music from the comfort of their own homes. There are so many great DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) to choose from but at the end of the day they are just tools. Imagine yourself staring at a blank canvas. Next to you is a locked box and inside that box are your paints. The problem is that you don't know how to unlock the box! A working knowledge of music theory is the key to unlocking that box and access the colors you need to create your masterpiece. 

This course is designed to give you a working, practical, useable knowledge of music theory that will help you to get your ideas from your head to the workstation of your choice and ultimately to your audience. 

I know how frustrating it can be to not be able to express your musical ideas. I know what its like to sit through that boring music theory class. I also know what it was like to experience a major breakthrough in my understanding that allows me to use music theory as a tool to bring ideas to fruition and communicate these ideas to musicians that I work with. 

In this course I will unlock the door to the large room that is music theory in a way that will allow you to quickly put to use regardless of what instrument you play or what DAW you use.

If you're ready to unlock that box, let's get started!

Master the fundamentals of music in minutes a day!

Breaking Down Barriers to Music Theory was created as a helpful resource to introduce the student to the world of music theory, and a broadening understanding of what is going on in the music they are hearing and playing.

At times, music theory to some may seem overwhelming, overcomplicated, unnecessary, time-consuming, and even scary. I personally created Breaking Down Barriers to Music Theory to change that stigma. I want to prove that reading music, and understanding the music on a deeper level is totally capable by taking it in small parts, a few minutes every day, and through a very simplified approach.

This course will introduce you to the language of music, both written and played, as well as giving you the building blocks required to progress to the higher levels of music theory and analysis.

Not only do I believe in this method, but I believe in YOU, and I want to see this method work for you by doing everything possible in my power as an instructor. There is too much happening in the music around us not to appreciate every element, and in doing so, you just may begin to appreciate the music around you even more.

You're studying for the ABRSM Grade 7 Music Theory exam. You know that there will be a composition to write, but what is expected of you exactly? How do they judge something which seems to be so subjective? What are you supposed to do with the piano accompaniment, or series of chords printed on the page? And how do you know if your composition is any good?

This course reveals all!

The ABRSM examiners are looking for evidence in your composition, that you have a good knowledge of music theory and can apply that knowledge by creating a piece of music, in a silent exam room, with no access to a piano.

Learn a skill that producers like Dr. Dre, Rodney Jenkins, Brian Michael Cox, and even Timbaland know to make beats!

Most beat makers and music producers have God given talent but lack understanding of the technical aspects of music production, such as music theory.

Wouldn't you like to know how to play piano chords, scales, and progressions so your beats sound more professional? Trust me this skill will separate your tracks from the competition.

This course is designed to teach you all the basic elements of music theory and playing the piano but solely for the purpose of improving your beats. And that my friend is the difference! Instead of paying a piano teacher that is completely disconnected from your world of music production, learn this skill from someone who actually produces music. Makes sense right.

I've been producing music for over 10 years and was taught how to play the piano at the age of 12. But when I was learning, all the concepts seemed foreign to me and were hard to understand. I eliminate this problem and will promise you that in under an hour you will know everything you need to make your beats sound more musically sound and original. (This is very important in these days where anyone can get a computer and software program and start making beats)

So take action on your dream, enroll in this course, and learn a skill that the majority of your competition doesn't have!

Thanks for your time and I'll see you on the other side.
