О курсе

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 5: Counterpoint Complete, and it finishes what would be the first semester of a college music theory class.

Throughout this class, I'll be providing you with many 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 of Counterpoint
  • Second Species Counterpoint
  • Metric Accents and Diminutions 
  • Resolutions
  • Passing Tones
  • Consonant Skips and Leaps
  • Neighbor Tones
  • Writing Compelling Melodies
  • Third Species Counterpoint
  • The Cambiata
  • Double Neighbor Tones
  • Fourth Species Counterpoint
  • Rhythmic Displacement
  • Suspensions
  • 4-3, 7-6, and 9-8 Suspension Types
  • Consonant Suspensions
  • Chains of Suspensions
  • Fifth Species Counterpoint
  • Free Counterpoint
  • Worksheets and Music for Practice
  • and much, much more!

And of course, once you sign up for Part 5 - Counterpoint Complete you automatically get huge discounts to all the upcoming parts of this class.

Test Prep: 

This course is perfect for prep for the Praxis II Test (ETS Praxis Music), The ABRSM Music Theory Exam (up to Grade 8), AP Music Theory Exam, College Placement Exams (Music Theory), and other common secondary and post-secondary placement exams.

You will not have another opportunity to learn Music Theory in a more comprehensive way than this. Start here.

Praise for classes by Dr. Jason Allen:

  • "Without a doubt the best explanation and east of use that one can get. It leaves you enough room to go explore. The classes go by quick, so you can be on your way at being proficient. What are you wait for!"
  • "Amazing - Seriously Loved It! I took all his courses and have to say I'm so happy! Learnt loads! Jason is an awesome teacher!"
  • "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 through this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me."
  • "I like these courses because you can get up and running quickly without having to spend hours of time wading through TMI (too much information!). Jason hits the high points but shows you what you need to know. Thanks!"
  • "I've watched many other videos on scales and chords before, however, this one has been the best. I now understand minor scales and chords and even how to analyze songs. It really gave me the confidence to start producing music because I feel like I have some structure and guidelines to follow. AWESOME!"
  • "Clear and Informative - Jason has a clear uncluttered style (with the important dashes of humor) of presentation that is focused on the important key aspects of this course. Recommended for those starting out!"
  • "Dr. Allen does it again with his music theory 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 means without giving what you don't want to know."

Welcome
Lets get started!
Introduction
First things first! An overview of what we are going to cover in this class.
Tools we will use
I like to start this class by talking about some important tools - both software and not. 
[DOWNLOAD] Staff Paper
Download this staff paper and print it out so you have some to take notes on.
Review: Modes
In previous theory classes, we talked about Modes. This is a quick refresher.
Review: First Species Counterpoint
In the last theory class we started learning First Species Counterpoint. This class will build on that, so lets start off with a quick review.
Second Species Counterpoint
Second Species Counterpoint uses all the rules of first species, plus some more.
What's new in second species
First, we need to learn the new rule of 2-to-1, and the complications that it brings.
Metric accents and diminutions
Because we have more notes now, we have to deal with accented beats.
Resolutions
More notes means more dissonances, and that means more resolutions.
