THE MAJOR SCALE: CONSTRUCTION & PURPOSE
Whether you have no experience at all or have picked up threads of information along the way, we will be starting from ground zero! This workshop is open to everyone: singers, instrumentalists & songwriters.
DOES THE THOUGHT OF MUSIC THEORY MAKE YOU FEEL ANXIETY AND STRESS? DOES IT SEEM OVERWHELMING?
If so, it’s completely unnecessary to continue to feel that way! Learning theory is important and liberating. You will gain a deeper understanding of melody, harmony, writing and reading charts, communicating your musical ideas, improving your ability to finish songs, spark your creativity and boosting your co-writing skills.
Learning music theory is not as complicated or difficult as it seems. I have developed my own linear and organized system to help my guitar & songwriting students understand, learn and implement music theory. Just show up with a pencil and notepad and all the questions you can think of!
Don’t just memorize the information, understand it!!
It all starts with knowing how to construct a major scale and knowing what notes are in each key. This is the foundation of the music. It’s the gateway to understanding the Nashville Number System. Don’t just memorize the information, understand it!!
CHORD CONSTRUCTION & KEY SIGNATURES
We will learn how chords are constructed. What’s the difference between Major and Minor? What is a diminished chord? How do you know key you’re in?
What chords are in the key, how the chords work together by knowing & understanding their FUNCTION!!
The next step is putting it all together! You will leave the workshop knowing how the major scale is constructed, keys and key signature, how to build the foundational chords/triads and what chords are in what keys and why.
