Description

Learn how to understand complex music theory without ever learning the circle of fifths! This technique has been passed down to me by my professors and his professors before him!

  • Key signatures
  • Triads
  • Scales
  • Rhythmic relationships
  • Chords
  • Melody and Harmony
  • And Much More!

The course should take you at least a week of studying and practicing methods introduced in the course curriculum.

The course is structured in a fast-pace video by video slideshow with a voice over. Full explanations of each method are provided.

You would want to take my course if you are seeking to better your knowledge of music theory and understanding how to read everything involving music scores and triads.

Music Education Major

Hello! I was the concert violinist and first chair violinist for Windham High School in Maine for 4 years. In High School I was the leader of a string quartet and played for multiple orchestral events such as District II and Allstate. In college, I played for the Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra for 1 year and studied music education and violin performance. I also studied violin performance at 317 Maine Street School of Music in Yarmouth Maine. I have been studying intensive music theory and teaching students for 4 years. I teach using a method I created to interact with my students, find their interests, and take them on a journey in music theory and violin performance. My main focus is to incorporate basic music theory and a full understanding of the violin while learning how to play it and have fun doing so. I teach a wide age verity of students which makes Udemy the perfect site for me to teach. Some of my students range from 4-5 years old to even 65 years old. I currently teach privately and I am hoping to one day own my own studio to teach in. I was awarded the Joanna Bell Memorial Scholarship for string performance at the University of Southern Maine.
