Overview

Music theory can be a complicated, confusing subject. But it doesn't have to be! Did you know most popular songs use just a couple of easy concepts, which once you learn make the process of writing and producing music an absolute breeze.

In this class, we're going to tackle everything you need to know about music theory to write great pieces of music.

In this class you will learn about:

  • The basics of music theory
  • Keys
  • Relative Major/Minor
  • Songwriting basics/development
  • Major scale
  • Chords
  • Chord progressions
  • Chord progressions inside the circle of 5ths
  • 7th Chords
  • 9, 11, 13th chords
  • Sus chords
  • Chord inversions
  • Melodies, leads & bass lines
  • The pentatonic scale

By the end of this course, you'll have an excellent understanding of how to use music theory to confidently write amazing music.
