For musicians and students taking music classes, this course does not require that you play an instrument. We take away the aspect of an instrument and study the core of music using just notes. No need to be an expert piano player or guitarist, all you'll want to have is a little bit of thinking power and maybe a notepad to take some notes (music notes that is :P). If you are a musician, applying this information to your instrument will drastically improve your knowledge and skill level.
Even if you have no musical experience, this course could be for you. With this series, not only will you dive into the basics of music but you will also learn a lot about acoustics, ear training, pitch and frequency, harmonics and overtones, and more. Even if you are not studying to be a musician, this course has content that will help you understand sound as a whole. This means that if you are a computer technician, an audio producer, a commercial designer, a video producer, a studio designer, or anything else dealing with sound, you could benefit from this course!
The course should not take too long to complete, but it is recommended that you stop after each video to take notes and memorize material. For some topics, you might need to practice or rewatch the video a few times to get everything (there is a lot of content in this course). Try to memorize...Memorizing this content will forever impact your musical knowledge and make you enjoy music that much more!
Who this course is for:
- People in a music theory course
- People who are new to music
- beginner musicians
- intermediate musicians
- expert musicians who need to learn more theory
Hi! I'm Caleb. I have created over 1,500 tutorials on data, software development, cryptocurrency, etc. I believe that the way I teach is what matters. I don’t flash big words without explaining them and I don’t assume knowledge.
I keep it simple
My goal is to simplify complex problems for anyone to understand. I'm not your typical "teachers who can create an entire course without actually explaining anything.
I keep it detailed
I also like to be thorough. If you watch my content and don’t leave with a new understanding, then I am not doing my job.
I keep it fun
My primary goal is not to put you to sleep as I read an encyclopedia from slides (I prefer dictionaries). Actually, I kinda hate Powerpoint. My unique approach has caused my videos to be watched 91 years (that’s 800K hours of watchtime on YouTube alone).
I am now a tech trainer with this resume:
170k+ YouTube subscribers
180k+ Udemy students
Ex-IBMer and Ex-Software Engineer
O’reilly Live trainer and course author
International speaker on data and Software Development
10 years of coding experience
I love teaching, and I’m beyond excited to have you join me in the learning process.
June 4th, 2012. I decided to take my skill set to the next level and learn how to professionally program databases as well as websites. After just graduating my Junior year of high school, I did not have a typical summer vacation. Rather, I studied daily and prepared for this new goal of mine. By July 23rd, I uploaded my first class in this new mindset of determination. Since then, I have created over 1,500 educational classes over database Design, programming, web development, and more.
