Description

Struggling to understand musical theory as a music producer? Look no further!

In this brand new course, learn everything from scales to arpeggios, MIDI files to chords, and everything in between. Specifically catered towards music producers, we will look at musical theory in this context.

Although this is geared towards users of FL Studio, this is also applicable for users of any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)

What's included?

  • Learn the differences between major and minor scales, and the 3 types of minor scales that exist

  • The Blues scale, and how you can use it

  • What chords are, why they are vitally important in writing music, and how to use popular chord progressions (as well as some not-so-popular ones!)

  • Arpeggios and how they can be used in your music

  • The Circle of Fifths

  • MIDI Files, how to import and export them

  • And much more!

We start off in the introduction by explaining why musical theory is important, even in this day and age of automation, digital music production and vocoding, where it seems like everything is already done for you. We look at how to use your tools in your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) to your advantage, and work alongside them, rather than simply relying on them.

We then look at the differences between scales, firstly looking at major and minor scales, before moving on to more unique examples such as the blues scale.

In addition to this, chord progressions are then examined, along with detailed explanations of how you can go about writing your own chord progressions and melodies to go along with them

  • Beginner music production students who wish to learn more about musical theory
