About This Class

A class designed for the electronic musician that wants to take their tracks to the next level. In this class we will focus on learning how to organize pitches and rhythms to make dynamic and interesting melodies and harmonies. No experience with music theory is necessary. Playing an instrument and reading music is also not necessary. We will be focusing on how to use your DAW as your instrument to create with.

Half way through the course and already learning so much, very useful if you are a Ableton user and the lecture really makes it fun to learn
A very good over view of Diatonic scales, Intervals, And Key.
This has to be the most straight forward Music Theory Class in the entire universe. Not only does he not get into the technical stuff a novice really wouldn't care about, but he also keeps everything simple. He also he way more energetic and is not monotone when he speaks, which makes it way more fun to learn music theory.
