In this class, you will learn a huge amount of music theory, specifically around chord harmony, and understanding the music keys. This will help you be able to write or learn songs much more efficiently.

This video course will cover:

  •  The understanding of all 12 music keys
  •  The understanding of how music works
  •  Knowledge of chord harmony (what chords fit with other chords)
  •  Knowledge of notes, and how they fit with chords
  •  Understanding in detail the Major and Minor scale
  •  learning songs much faster, and or how to write songs using this system
  •  The understanding of how chord progressions work
  •  Have the freedom to be able to fully understand how songs are built

You don’t need prior experience but some basic knowledge of chords and scales will help.

Step by step instructions to guide you with this video course.

Know your notes and the basics, once you have learned all 12 notes, and where they’re on the fretboard, you will be able to understand the basics of music

– Write down the notes on the fretboard yourself to help solidify this knowledge

The Major Scale, understanding how to build the Major scale will help you understand a fundamental part of music theory

– Pick any key, and work out the major scale using the formula

The Fretboard, learn the Major scale (see attachment)

– Play the major scale, and then transpose to different keys

Why do we have sharps and flats

– Write out more major scales, and understand that some are sharp keys, and some are flat

Knowing your keys is key, observe all 12 keys on the board

– Write this out and work each major scale using the formula. On the left side, you go up in 5th’s to find your next scale (#’s) and on the right side, you go up in 4th’s to find the next scale (b’s)

Music Harmony, observe all 12 keys with chords

– Choose any of the keys, and then choose some chords from a key and play them to hear that it works!

– Random pick songs, preferably pop or rock songs, and ask yourself ‘What key is this piece in?’

The Relative Minor

– Understanding what a relative minor is

– Choose any major key and find the relative minor

– The minor key you have chosen, check to see that the chords work

Chord Progressions are commonly used orders of chords

– Find songs that have common chord progressions such as;

1 – 4 – 5 // 1 – 6 – 4 – 5 // 1 – 6 – 4 – 5

Using music theory for learning and writing songs, solidifying all this newfound knowledge

– analyze more songs, check to see what chord progressions have been used

– create your own songs by using this chart

(see chart attached)

Enjoy 🙂
