About This Class

Learn Piano Level 8 - Learn to use Augmented Chords Substitution into Away In A Manger & Whole Tone Scales

Sometimes when we listen to musicians playing a musical arrangement, we here a metallic sound that makes the piece of music mesmerizing. They are sounds that we hear when we play the whole tone scales.

Whole Tone Scales have tones that are one whole step apart. They sound ethereal.

Here's the Secret: Whenever there are Augmented Chords put in the music arrangement, we can readily play part of the whole tone scale into the chord. Or sometimes just sharpening the 5th tone of the chord in place of the dominant 7 chord, we the raised 5th tone gives the piece of music an ethereal sound. Augmented Chord with the sharp 5 tone is actually an altered dominant chord substitution.

Learn how to put in Augmented Chords into your music arrangement!
