UDEMY BEST SELLER

This course is "5-Star Certified" by the International Association of Online Music Educators and Institutions (IAOMEI). This course has been independently reviewed by a panel of experts and has received a stellar 5-star rating.

Welcome to the COMPLETE Music Theory Guide!

This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take music theory (or music interest) and turn it into a usable skill. Whether you are an active musician or an aspiring musician, this class is perfect for you.

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.

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. If you've tried to learn music theory before, or if you are just starting out - this series of courses is the perfect fit.

Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated Udemy instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes. 

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

This Edition of the class is the "Complete" Edition: It contains levels 1, 2, & 3 in their entirety. 

Included in this course: 

  • 151 Video lectures, following my college Music Theory Curriculum. 
  • 28 Downloadable worksheets for practice (with answers!)
  • Access through discounts to my entire network for music classes

Программа
Getting Started
Welcome to Part 1 of the Music Theory Comprehensive Course!
Welcome & Overview
Welcome to the class! In this lecture we will do a quick overview of the course.
My Approach To Music Theory
I approach music theory from a composer and songwriters perspective. In this lecture I'll walk you through how I think about Music Theory and how I approach teaching (and learning) it.
Tools You Will Need For This Course
I'm going to teach this class using a really cool (and FREE) software program. You don't need to get it, but I think it will help you learn more, and learn faster.
Update! MuseScore 3.0
Download: Staff Paper
Here is the download I talked about in the previous lecture. Some nice clean staff paper. Print out a few sheets for taking notes!
About Notation Software Programs
There are a lot of music notation software programs (well, only 3, actually). And they can be quite expensive. I'm recommending a free one, but the others are worth talking about quickly before we dive in to the real guts of the class.
Asking Questions
All The Little Dots
In this section we will look at the notes on the score: What we call them, how to find them, and how they work.
The Elements of the Score
To get started, I want to just walk through a score and point out the different elements that we are seeing. We will learn what all of these mean soon.
Pitch Names
Here we go: The names of the pitches.
Pitch Classes
We have pitch names, which we just learned. We also have pitch classes - slightly different (but important) than pitch names.
Требования
  • Students should be enthusiastic about music, but do not need to be producers or musicians. No prior experience is needed in music - All are welcome!
  • I'll be using a piece of software in this course that I would like students to get. Don't worry - it's free! And works on Mac and PC programs. I'll tell you more in the first few videos.
