Udemy Music Theory Comprehensive: Part 1 How To Read Music TUTORiAL
For years I've been teaching Music Theory in the college classroom. These classes 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.

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

This class is Part 1: Reading Music & The Symbols of Music Notation.

In this class, we will cover:

My approach to Music Theory
Tools you will need to learn Music Theory quickly and efficiently
Music software: Notation programs
The elements of the Score
Pitch Names
Pitch Classes
Octaves
The White Keys
The Black Keys (not the band!)
Half-Steps and Whole-Steps
Clefs
Intervals
Naming Octaves
Identifying Notes on the Staff
Identifying Notes on the Keyboard
Beat and Beat Divisions
Tempo
Downbeats and Upbeats
Dotted Rhythms
Time Signatures
Ties

...and much, much more!

A Complete College-Level Music Theory Curriculum. This is Part 2: Understanding all chords, scales, and keys.

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.

This class is Part 2: Chords, Scales, and Keys.

Throughout this class, I'll be providing you with 8 worksheets for you to practice the concepts on. If you get stuck, you can review the videos or post a question, and I'll back to it as fast as possible. Also in this class I have several complete analysis projects that we will complete together - just like in my college classes.

In this class, we will cover:

My approach to Music Theory
Tools you will need to learn Music Theory quickly and efficiently
Chromatic and Diatonic scales
Ordered Pitch Class Collections
The pattern of a Major Scale
Scale Degrees
Solfege
Writing melodies with major scales
Analyzing melodies
What it means to be "in key"

How to identify key signatures
Popular song analysis
Building triads (chords)

Making common sense out of the "rules" of music theory. Learn to Part Write and Analyze Tonal Music.

This Part Writing and Analysis Course is the third 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.

Students who have mastered music Fundamentals and Level II courses will now apply their skills to voice leading 4 part harmony in SATB format. The common "rules" of music theory are explained as constraints. We do what we need to do to make the sounds we want to hear. We avoid the sounds that we do not want to hear.

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

This Advanced Course covers 4-part voice leading and basic analytical techniques.

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 Part Writing and Analysis Course is normally taught in 9-18 weeks.

For years I've been teaching Ableton Live in the college classroom. As a University Professor, my classes are sought after, and, frankly, expensive. I believe Ableton Live can be learned by anyone, and cost shouldn't be a barrier. This class uses the same outline and syllabus I've used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost.

I will be making 6 (six!) complete classes in order to bring you the most comprehensive manual on Ableton Live production techniques ever created. Each class has Sets, sessions, and experiments for you to try on your own and follow along with.

And of course, once you sign up for Part 1 - The Interface, you automatically get huge discounts to all the upcoming parts (the next 5!) of this class.

You will not have another opportunity to learn Ableton Live in a more comprehensive way that this. Start here.

J. Anthony Allen is an Ableton Certified Trainer, and a PhD in Music Composition and master of Electronic Sounds. His music has been heard internationally in film, radio, video games, and industrial sound, as well as the concert hall and theater.

He currently as an adjunct professor of composition at the University of St. Thomas, Macphail Academy of Music, and the CEO of Slam Academy in Minneapolis.

Praise for other classes by J. Anthony Allen:

"Dr Allen does it again with his music theory for electronic musicians series. This course really opened up everything I learned from the 1st section and now I understand more about the composition side of things for music. I highly highly recommend this course to anyone!!! Really opened my eyes to many things I wasn't aware of."

"The Best Teacher ever, who makes you understand the ins & outs of Music Theory by all mean without giving what you don't want to know."
"I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going thru this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me."
