WINTER/SPRING 2023: LEVEL 1 section offered ONLINE, FULLY-INTERACTIVE and On-Demand, Wednesday nights starting 3/8/23!
Not yet enrolled? Check out this bonus class 1 as our GUEST right away by signing up here. Class then has 7 LIVE meetings over zoom, with full replays and all support materials & handouts available on-demand for your review.Designed to dovetail with THE ROOTS songwriting curriculum, Music Theory & Ear Training Level 1 equips the songwriter with a foundational understanding of harmony, melody, rhythm, and phrasing in the construction of songs. Learn to recognize chord changes and intervals by ear and come to understand how the songs you love fit together and how the songs you write might better become the songs you love.
These are some of the goals and outcomes of Music Theory & Ear Training for Songwriters, the companion curriculum to The ROOTS songwriting class.
Level 1 is all “diatonic harmony”—notes and chords in the key--all about how to build strong, emotional, impactful harmony/melody/phrasing choices in our songs.
And then in Level 2 we get to 7th chords as the doorway beyond the key. Level 2 takes you far beyond the key into secondary dominants, parallel major and minor, modes and modal interchange, etc.
ONLINE STUDENTS: Class includes regular homework feedback opportunities and individual and small group video conferencing to get feedback on your songs and have your questions answered.
