About This Class

  • What is harmony?
  • What is a chord?
  • What do Major and Minor mean?
  • Why do we have different kinds of chords?
  • How can I hear the difference between Major and Minor chords?

All of these questions and more will be answered in this course. I will be giving many tips on visual memorization of the keyboard as well as practical applications to get you playing sings easier and faster. And of course as always, I will include a bit of ear training.


In this new "Series" I am taking a different approach to the traditional online education experience. Each course will contain a curated series of lessons to achieve a musical goal. Instead of simply presenting the information to you in the typical online format (Me- teacher talking to you , giving information and supplying tests and downloadable documents to you - The student)  At the beginning of each course, I will first show a video of a one-on-one lesson with a student who is learning the same material. It is my intention to demonstrate the challenges and rewards one can encounter during the education process.  My test students name is Daniel and he is a great guy and very funny.


1. Major and Minor chords Introduction: Hello, everyone. My name is Michael Emenalo, and I'm here today to talk to your boat and exciting new course that just created called. The Music lesson in this series, of course, is I'm gonna be taking a different approach than traditional online education experience or me. The teacher teaches you how to do something that will be included. But I'm also going to give you a real life. One on one case study One of my students has graciously accepted to be videotaped while I teach them different music concepts. Now, this concept could be what a court is or how to find a certain note in the piano or a scale or how to play a certain song. Uh, but the fun part is, is that after you have watched and experienced my student go through the process, I have then chosen a series of selected, curated classes from previous courses that have made to learn this singular concept. Now it's a lot of fun seeing a student go through this, you'll be able to see the challenges, the pitfalls where they succeed, what's easy, what's hard. And hopefully it'll give you the student a little more empathy for other people learning as well as yourself. In this course, we're going to be learning about harmony, chords and the differences between major and minor chords. We're gonna learn how to construct these chords, but more importantly, we're going to learn how to listen to and to tell. The difference is between a major and minor chord just using our ears. I'll be giving you concrete examples on how to hear the differences between these two types of court. And then I'll be presenting a series of quizzes to help solidify what you've already learned. Hearing major and minor chords is as much an emotional at scientific process, and it's often quite misunderstood. So I'll be showing you a step by step process to hear the differences. I think that this is a pretty interesting course, and I think you also have a lot of fun along the way. So let's get to it 2. Major Vs. Minor Pt 1: Yeah, exactly. Wait a little tension on the side. We want to talk about major and minor. Two words You've heard a lot. So before I tell you what they are, in my opinion, what do you know when you know what major minor does that mean to you? What does it mean to me? Um, well, I'm more familiar with minor. Then. I am major. I don't get the oh, things start to get. Okay, okay. Give me a start. I have no idea. I have no idea. And minor, you have no idea like this. You okay? That's what I'll say. Great. So here's what we're gonna do. So, first of all, on a technical level, there's different ways that scales could be made and they're different intervals off semi tones and tones. We're not Don't really want to talk about how to build a scale of today just to know that there were different ways. Different groupings of nose well into making a major or a minor scale cords are all based off of scales. So, as it turns out, the notes that an a minor chord, or the same as the notes that on a minor scale saying for Major in the simplest way to describe these is that on an emotional level and this on lazy to say this. But this is generally how would you describe Major is happy minor is sad or melancholy. Oh, okay. I'm familiar with your phones feelings. Okay, so and But they do, they do play off. So I'm gonna play a major chord. I don't This feels happy or sad. You, um I feel happy versus the minor. I'll do it in the same key. I'm a little center. A little sadder. So why, You know what? I don't know. I don't even know if we're gonna find it by researching. So let's just say I don't know. And in fact, this is pretty subjective Western stuff. Okay, I've done some research, so I had always thought that this was one of these nature versus nurture situations where we have just being told since we were born at these types of notes were happy these tapes of notes or sad and that is why major and minor the way they are. But there is some interesting science to look at as well. Every note that is played produce is actually a series of notes called The Harmonic Siri's . We only generally here the fundamental note, which is what we call the notes. So if I play a C plunk, you hear a C. But you're actually hearing a whole series of notes here, here. See? Then you hear another scene octave above that, and then you're a G and then an F and then an e flat and just goes up and up and up. This is called the Harmonic Siris in Interestingly, if you look at the harmonic Siri's, it relates pretty closely to how harmony was developed. First we sang in unison, then we had octaves, and then there was fifths and then force. And then once we get the major thirds and minor thirds, we started creating the harmonies and stacking chords together. Maybe what I'll do is I'm gonna play a couple songs that okay, the song you're doing right now is the's are all major chords, kind of kind of happy. I'm going to play the same song as if it were in a minor key. So it's gonna be the same contour of notes, but where I before would be playing these notes I'm gonna play on this note is what defines the difference. Three major and minor as well as it's only two notes difference, but it does change the overall integrity. So in major minor there is a big It's a big difference, only two notes. So at this point, I'm just going to read right from Read it because it explains it much better than me. And this is from explain like I'm five and I really like this. So you have to sounds. One has half the length of the other, and so it fits inside the other twice nice and snugly. The two others are not give apart, with shorter wavelength being higher. If two wavelengths of one sound lineup with three wavelengths inside the other, the sound is 1/5. If the ratio is 3 to 4, it's 1/4. He sounds air still harmonious to us, even though not as much as the octave sound. That is why they're called perfect fifths and perfect fourths. A 4 to 5 ratio gives us a major third, and if I to six ratio gives us a minor third, so basically, the farther away you get in these ratios, the less harmonious a sound becomes. And that is Ah, a nature reason for why a major third would be more harmonious Slash happy than a minor third Byner. It's not that so that this is sort of sonically how it goes. So what I like to do with students is the first thing I'm gonna play some chords with your eyes closed or actually doesn't even matter if your eyes are open close because you don't know how to play any court right now. So I think you're about to enjoy yourself. I'm about to enjoy myself. I will see what happens. Um, OK, so first I'm going to play three major chords just to give you the sound of them we've been playing. There's another one. I guess you could say they have a brighter sound versus the minor Minor. This one does feel very minor. He doesn't, especially because it's come from here that is used a lot in film scoring that in particular progression. Uh, now that you've heard it, you probably notice it's sort of a creeps A feeling of, but I don't know Well, well, I guess that's a question. When you hear that. What is your emotional reaction to it being in the biz and all? Well, that is definitely bringing me, you know, it's bringing me not so much down, but I'm holding for a moment. I don't know where things are going to go, but I know that you're tapping in my not happy parts. There you go. Well, that that's that's great. So back to the nurture side, this is kind of interesting and just add a bit of a sort of context. Associating feelings with note intervals Accord started in the late Renaissance and really bloom through the Baroque period. Ah, and has been associated with any dick out who actually dictated that certain interval Certain cadenza Zor instruments should be used to, ah, create certain emotions not only happy, sad, but for torment, despair, pride. Um, but the idea that associating certain intervals with emotion is definitely something that has been around for a long time. Although you go to different cultures and they will be using minor for happy and major for sad. So I think I personally I'm going to put it to nurture. Although nature has some points. Okay, back to it. Okay, so I'm gonna play a chord and you just tell me if you think it's major minor. Oh, I think that's minor. That is, Major. I'm gonna do that same court in a minor to hear the difference. Okay? Yeah. So there's, uh okay, I'm gonna do another one. You do a minor. It seems it flattens for me. It does thought because actually, when you build a minor court Hey, great comment. Daniel, Here's a major chord and that you can look at it. So there I've got a G b in a d. This is a major court. If I take the middle note and I put it to this note What's that? No. Now, has this be that b minor? That's, uh, there's a name. It's in a sharp sharp, or if I might be and I'm lowering the note, it still keeps the same letter name. But instead of it being sharp, it is now a B flat, right? Exactly. So, G Major, the third note is major, if I take the third of this cord, this is just a regular shape court, and I put it down a semi tone. That is actually how you build a minor court off of a major chord. So it's same thing I was that first quarter played is that this is a major. And now look, I take the third. Don't put it down to semi tone. Uh, that's a minor cable. No, that's some easy ones. 3. Major Vs. Minor Pt 2 : That's a minor I'm getting do some easy ones. I'm gonna spread it apartment. There's also your years interpreted different, higher pictures and lower pitches. Can we play lower? We think it's tend to think it's more minor, but anyway, here's another chord fields, and that is major. Here's the minor version major, but it's interesting if I do the same down here. Is this major minor that actually is major good? That's bad. There's a There's a heaviness to it, Um, like certain. I'm certain when you play the minor down here, that's certainly minor, But I'm sometimes I wonder whether it's a major. I'm right, you're more and it's the same thing. Here's a minor chord. Oh, I told Well, anyway says it's up high. You brighter feeling we can to think that this major even, though now, listen, there's that minor that's super bright up there like Wow, that's somebody's really happy. I never met that guy. Um, So what else I want to say about this? Um, let's just try a couple more, have you, asshole? I I'll play it. You tell me what you think it or you know you to your own ears because this actually is for you. This guy, he's just a Is this a standing rahm? Okay, so I'm gonna play some chords and then you give a moment before you guess that other good looking guess Because you want it? Sure. Would you call that sour? Not sour. You want Teoh? I want to queer the, uh, no. No. One you don't want to be leading. Yeah, I don't lead the less. There you go. Okay, So here comes Accord. What? I think Minor. It's major. Here's the minor. So it's crazy. Yeah. In relation to each other. It's always clear. Right is right. That that feels like a mind. That is a minor. Here's the major. Also, we're not waiting for you. That is a major. Here's the minor. Okay? And make this a bit more interesting. I'm not going to spread the cords out. Okay? What that means is right now being playing these courts enclosed position. Which means this is the most basic, simple way to make a this KCC major court quickly to make a major chord. You take any note? You kind of four semi tones. 1234 and then count three more 123 That is a quick and dirty way to make a major chord. 1234123 record. And it's the inverse to make a final critic count. 341231234 That's a very quick last night. How to make a major minor court, but that's actually others to it. So if I split accord notice See, e g. This is a major court. If I take this e and we talked with office before I put it up there, this is still a major court. This is just anything that involves those three notes is a major court. See, Major, this is C major, which means that this c minor So tell me about this. Is this a major minor court minor? I'm gonna close position. OK, that's a major. It was made a cardinal. All I did was I took that D Yeah, I put up there, So it's still a major court, but is enough? It's in an open, open position. It's strange. Now I'm gonna make that major minor major on dure really here. That because of the the boat, the note that defines whether It's major minor. Is it very exposed? You really hear that thing? This is so again, uh, for use in film scoring all the time. You've got that Sort of like I'm here. I'm making a film score music right now, like we like. Wait, what was going wrong or something? Something wrong? She's happy or he's happy coming up to the door. And then the doors opened its opening pensive. I think that that would be never be pensive ity thing or something like that. Um, this is this is kind of it. I'm gonna spend a couple more up. Yeah. Uh, here's super wide open. You tell me what this is. Who is the big straight from hand? Sorry, I'm gonna My hands don't work that way. That's minor. Very good. Here's the major version of it. I don't know what my hands could do it. No, I can't talk to do there. Yeah, that's minor. I'm gonna play another song in minor. We did the door, dear. Ah, Well, there's that, I wonder. It's kind of neat. And especially when you start adding the cords, which we're gonna be doing later on. If you hear versus crazy and it's only just a couple. It's just changing a couple loads within. The scale changes the entire integrity of this song. You guys need another laugh? Hey, I felt major and minor. Good. Usually it takes me five minutes run that scale, but there 4. What is Harmony ?: harmony is two or more note played at the same time. Generally, this referred to his cords, although there it could also just be to melody. Lines are harmonizing with each other. Let's look at it. Okay, for example, here is a melody is a melody. It's it moves horizontally. It's going to the left to the right, but it's single notes now. If I have a harmony, the most basic way to describe it would be as a cord, and we'll be talking about chords a lot. Here's what it looks like. This this is my cord. This is my Harvard. This is my melody. Another way you could describe this is that the harmony in this case is a vertical. It kind of stacks on top of each other. To make this case, geek or melody is more of a horizontal, moving to the left and right now, harmony. Generally, we're gonna say it's supports a melody. It it indicates where Kieran, but generally it's to give a fuller, richer sound too eager. Melody is now Harmony can also, for example, Harvard. He could be a harmonised part. I could be playing a melody I could be doing a harmonized part with my other hand. So in this case, I wasn't playing a chord with my left hand. But there were two different notes in this case a D and B Teoh cords. This is the basis of what harmony is. The next lesson we're gonna be looking specifically at cores. 5. What is a chord ?: in this lesson, we're gonna be talking about cords. Where the court is now in its simplest form, accord is a combination it. There's a group of notes played at the same time, whether on the piano, whether it's on a guitar or any instrument that is able to play multiple notes, which would be guitar, piano, ukulele, banjo, violin a bit when instruments. It's very challenging to play more than one or two time for obvious technical reasons. Now Cord can have just two notes in it. But for all intrinsic purposes, all the court we're gonna be dealing with having a minimum of three notes, three different notes to make up that court. We're gonna be talking about major and minor chords initially. So how do you make a major chord? Let's take a look. You start with any note on the piano, we're going to start with C. You're gonna count four semi tones up. A semi tone is the closest note to the note. You have already that you already have. So I'm I see they closed. His note is C sharp will be one. The day is too de sharp history four. So that is the second ordered by court. But down three Not gonna count three more One Dio three That's a major chord That is a C major chord If I want to find an f major chord, I'm going to start with it I'm gonna count up four to three You're going to count three more one to But that's how you form an F major chord now inversely to make a minor chord You count three steps than four steps So I'm gonna go back to the sea I'm gonna kind of three semi tones 13 and then four more that seem minor court for the F 31234 Now there's another way to find your minor chords, which you may find simpler. Quicker. Um, if I'm on a C major ally need to do is take the middle note on moving down 1 70 Major major court My record. What's the difference? What's the purpose? Well, one of the ways I guess the most common way that it described as that major court are happy . Minor chords are sad. I think this is kind of simplistic, but it is a one way to describe the different emotional feelings that each type of court could give. But I think, more importantly, is just to consider that if you're in the key of C major, you're going to be wanting to use a C major chord because the harmony the cords are supporting the melody. And, conversely, if it's a C minor melody you're playing, then you're gonna want to use a C minor court. Let me give you some examples. So here's a melody in C minor, and I'm going to use a C minor chord to accompany it. And then I will use a C major and hear the difference. C Minor chords doesn't sound so good. I'll have a major song with minor chords. Way also wanted to touch briefly on playing chords on the guitar because it's not as visually evident how to find chords on the guitar as it is on the piano. And in fact, on the guitar, the best way is really just to memorize the shapes. I will be including a little guitar chord chart book and but when you, for example, if I want to play a d major chord Oh, that's a D major chord not to be mine record. It's much harder to count through and find and find the notes on a guitar. But just be sure that the cords have the same function. That's a D minor. They sound roughly the same. They give the same, uh, functional purpose that's a dream major chord. 6. How do Major and Minor work?: in this lesson, we're going to talk about the difference between a minor and a major chord. Now, structurally, we've already talked about it. As we've said, Major chord 123 with minor chord 1231234 The other way is if you have a major Snowden, you bring it down a semi tone of a minor. Same thing here, major. So that's the structure. But how can you hear the difference that somebody displays accord to say, Is this major minor? So the standard definitions are majors Happy? Minor aside, and I've really thought about another way to present this to you because I just find that is a very subjective. But I haven't had much luck. But here's a trick that I actually used to do when I was younger, and I want to see if this works for you. The idea is like this. You make a statement and then you play 1/4 after it. It's a statement, a positive statement, a happy statement. If you play my record, it feels a bit off and vice versa. For example, it's the end of the movie. There's Bean, all the trauma, the hardships, The ups and downs rid of the end. The good guy wins. And so what Chord works for the good guy. Great guy. One. It doesn't really work as a minor chord It We've been looking all week and we can't find her dog. Kind of works were looking all week and we can't find her dog. Major court. Just use a bit odd. I gotta be report solid major chord. It feels right I got today. I'm a report card. That's more like you are. You're failing your report card. I I can't find my dog. I looked everywhere. He seems to have disappeared. I found my dog. He ate everything in the I have a good time here, but seriously or un seriously, it's the idea Pretty a context with accord a major minor to help indicate which one of those two it is. This lesson is going very poorly. My students understood with a major chord. Waas I weigh everything reading test they don't like me is a teacher. Thank you for this lesson. 7. Ear training quiz Major and Minor on Piano: Hello, everybody. Welcome back. This is class number four. Off ear training fundamentals. Hope you've been having a good time so far and getting familiar with different pitches and then moving up and down were to do something different. This time it's a different type of your training, and I'm going to try to answer a very nebulous question. What is the difference between Minor and Major? How did they sound different? How can I hear the difference between these two types? Of course. So the simple answer is that a major court sounds happy in a minor chord. Sound sad now? These air very subjective terms, and I don't really like to use these terms so much. I feel their bit subjective, but they do get the point across to certain people. What I think the best thing to do is to listen to comparisons between majors and mine accords to help you hear them. How I discern between the major and minor court is I listen to the brightness of the cord, and what I mean by brightness is well, if you know how ah court is created, things is a major chord that C major, a zoo 135 of a C major scale. That's not important right now. What's important is that the sound of it is quite bright versus a C minor chord. I take the middle note and I put it down a semi tone, not to see minor chord. And I guess I say it's brighter because this middle notice of a higher pitch major, minor major. So that's one way of of discerning, whether it's major a minor, a game that I do with some of my students, sometimes on this sort of related to film scoring. Just how we emotionally ready to music has released images is I'll make a statement. And then, uh, I'll play a major, a minor chord and you tell me if that chord fits right. For example, uh, my dog, my dog got hit by a car versus my dog got hit by a car. The question is, which one sounds better? Theo. Visit him. This is a minor court. Does that minor make more sense with the dog getting hit by the car? Or is it the major? For me, it's minor. I love my dog. I love my dog because he's a happy dog. Yeah, kind of works. That makes me sad because I love my dog. Because you make me so happy. Doesn't make much sense. It has a heavier, darker song. Tow it for me on for a lot of people so you can make a statement. I just had the best day of my life. Kind of makes sense. I had the best day of my life. Doesn't make much sense as a minor court. This is a technique. There are different ways that people find out. The most effective way I find, though, is just to listen to a major court. And then here the minor chord next to it. And after a while, your ears will hear the brightness as it swings back and forth between major and minor. This is a major by comparison. This sounds heavier, sons darker to me. Major, minor, minor, major. It just sort of has a lifting sound. The major part. We're going to do 20 cords. I'll plate the court twice. You decide whether it's major minor and give you the answer. And then I'm gonna play the major and minor of each of these chords so you can hear. Compare and hopefully that is going to get you going. Okay, here we go. Number one, There's a some bright is a sound dark, major minor. It is a major chord. And here's the minor version. Major number two Bright, dark, major minor. It is a minor chord. Here's the major. Number three, this is a major chord. Here's the minor number four. It is a major core ray Minor danger number five. Ah, and this is also a major chord. Major minor. It's just this one note. Uh, liner. Okay. Ah, for this next set, I'm going to open up the cords of it before we've been playing these courts in close position. Meaning, uh, which is called a root position cord. I'm just going to move the notes around a bit. So for example, I may take this note and put it up here. Thats is still a major chord. It's so the same notes. They're just in different positions. Number six, major or minor. And this is a major chord. Here's the minor version. Number seven. Yeah, I find this one hard and I even know the answer. Yeah, it's a major chord. Here's the minor. Like I say when you hear them beside each other becomes much more Number eight and this is a minor chord. Number nine. Oh, here, that was a minor. Here it is a major minor major number 10. Oh, and this is a major. There's the third. That's the major, third, minor third major minor number 11. Uh oh. I find this one a little difficult to hear, but it is a major is the minor. It's this top know up here, I'm just telling you, if it's major or minor Number 12 it's a minor. Here's the major good, solid cord. That's the minor number 13. This is also major. Here's the minor. That's the note that's deciding whether it's major number 14 and that is a minor chord. Here's the major version. Major, minor major. Next chord and that is a minor is the major. I have lost count, so I'm gonna do five more support Boat that okay, these last five are going to be a little different because I'm not going to play the route as the bottom notes of the chord. Until this point, all the courts have been playing. For example, if I played a C major chord I've got to see at the bottom time playing an F sharp major record have sharp at the bottom. Wanting to do now is use a different base note, but these air still major chords or minor chords. Here we go. Okay. Two Major, Here's the minor version. Major minor. Next one, and that's a minor. Here's the major version. Next one, Uh, and that's a major chord. May have sounded minor, but it was major. Here's the minor version. A major, this note right here. A couple more chords and we're done. Um, and that's a major. Here's the minor. It's actually the base notice of one that is the third of the cord. That was kind of tricky. If you got that wrong. No worry about it. And the last one again. Minor, major, late, dark, heavy. How are you feel? This was a minor chord. Here's the major version. Minor major here is that same court in route position, a open position, bulls position. All that to be said that this is challenging, especially when the cords get wider, doesn't begin to be harder and harder to tell whether it is a major minor. But your ears will get used to this over time. It's really is a matter of just becoming familiar. Next week, we're gonna do another major minor thing, but it's gonna be on different instruments. And overall, if you were enjoying these classes, please ready the comments below. And also right. Tell me how you're doing. I want to know if these are too easy. If they're too hard. If there's anything specific that you would like to learn in these your training, fundamental courses. All right, See you next class. Bye bye. 8. Ear training quiz on other instruments: Hello, everyone. Welcome back to ear training fundamentals. Class number five. This time we're going to do something very different. We're going to continue along with major and minor chords, meaning we're gonna listen to accord. And you have to tell me if it's major minor. The difference is going to be instead of playing it on the piano, which is very typical for all your training quizzes, test tutorials. It's generally stunning the piano, which is fine. I do it too, but I thought it would be fun to do it on different instruments so you could listen to the different characteristics of different instruments. How they sound, how they lay out. It's easier or harder for you to get the tonalities. So we're gonna start with the classic instrument, the guitar, and I'm going to be playing major and minor chords. I'll play a chord. You listen, you figured out where you decide what you think it is, and then I will play the major or minor variation on that so we'll start with the classic. Is this a major or minor chord? Listen to it doesn't have a bright sound. Is it a sort of a heavier darker sound. Don't look at your fingers if you don't look at my fingers. If you can play guitar that's cheating. Use your ears. Okay, this is a major court. Here is the minor version of it. Major minor danger on Just like the piano. There's just one. No difference. That's a major. That's minor. Major. Next one. Number two. Is this a major or minor? E heard this quarter 1000 times? Is it a major? A minor? The answer is, it is major. Here's the minor version. Sorry, there's minor, major minor. All right, Number three, major or minor. How's it sound to you? This'll is a major. Here's the minor version. Major, minor, major minor. Here's the next one major or minor. I think this is a minor court hears the major way. They got a guy in a little closer. There's a small instrument, this Ah, little ukulele. And so what do we got here? Major minor.
