I spent years at university earning a master’s degree in music composition (Jazz Studies) and have been teaching theory and production at colleges for several years. In addition, I am an avid songwriter and producer for many artists and my own musical projects.
Being that I am an avid music enthusiast myself and realize that studying and creating music is a lifelong endeavor, it brings me great pleasure passing on the gift of music to others. I am confident this course will continue to teach you the basics of music theory in a practical, effective, quick, and concise way. Be sure to grab your instrument, download the attached ebook (in the resources section), and play along!
In this class you will learn:

You will be creating your own 8 bar (minimum) chord progression and melody that belong to a minor key. Please attach a link to a YouTube video, SoundCloud upload (or any other media platform of your choice) and describe to me the key you chose and what techniques really helped you to complete the project effectively.
Even if you have never written your own music before, you will be able to partake in the course project and complete an 8 bar chord progression with a melody that fits in a minor key. I look forward to teaching you and hearing your music creations!. Grab your instrument and jump right in.
