Skillshare Simple Music Theory for Beginners TUTORIAL
This is a complete beginnerÆs guide to the fundamentals of music theory. Grasping the basic concepts of music theory will equip even the most novice music enthusiast to appreciate and create songs! Music theory is the language behind music. Once you understand the patterns of how music is structured, you can mix and match ideas to create original songs. The thing is, most music schools or classes cover in-depth concepts that are not necessary to start creating. Because of this, many music students get frustrated and lose motivation to continue learning. But the truth is, you need only a few general principles to get started.
I designed this course for beginners who know NOTHING about music theory. But it will also be useful for intermediate musicians who need a refresher on the fundamentals.
In this class I cover :
- what are notes and pitches
- how to figure out every key in major and minor scales
- how to create chords, chord progressions, and inversions
- how to layer melodies on top of chord progressions
- how to count and add rhythm to your songs
By the end of the course, I want you to walk away with an excellent understanding of the basics of music theory. And as you practice playing and reinforcing these concepts, you will be able to explore music theory deeper to create even more complex sounds. I want you to feel confident in your ability to approach music theory and create your own songs.
