Lynda Music Theory for Songwriters: The Fundamentals TUTORiAL
Music theory is fundamental to making and playing music. However, no one has taught it in such a user-friendly and songwriting-focused way as we do here, using both keyboard and guitar to demonstrate the techniques. Professional musician Julian Velard starts the course with the building blocks of harmony: notes, scales, intervals, chords, inversions, and basic chord progressions. He then goes into voice leading—showing how to move from one chord to another by changing just one or two notes—and reviews common song forms, from the familiar verse/chorus/verse of pop to the simple verse of the blues. At the end of each chapter, Julian explains the songwriting techniques shown in the chapter within the context of his own original commercially released songs.

Topics include:

* Understanding scales, intervals, and keys
* Triads or three-note chords
* Triad inversions
* Common major-scale chord progressions and cadences
* Voice leading
* Song form elements such as verse, chorus, bridge, hook, and more
* Using common song forms in songwriting

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.

Say you've got a creative spark for a song idea and want to compose, record, and mix it into a song, using Apple GarageBand. In this 90 minute series, Eli Krantzberg shows you how you can use GarageBand to make it all happen, step by step.

Eli starts by explaining the series, and giving you a preview of the song, called "Hello Fun." The next videos are all about Song Buildup, Laying Down the Beat, coming up with a Chord Progression and Baseline for the Verse, creating a Pre-Chorus, then a Chorus.

Once the parts start taking shape, Eli dives into expanding the song with Pads and Pitch Risers, forming an Introduction, and adding String Synths to the Chorus.

With the parts formed, Eli now turns to song structure and developing the arrangement. With the song itself beginning to form, he spends the next few videos showing you how to Add and Edit Vocals and Guitars before finally Finishing off the Mix and sharing it with the world.

If you're new to GarageBand, maybe even to digital music in general, "First Song in GarageBand" will get you started on the path of complete song creation!
