This is a course that will dive into many areas of music theory. This series is for those who want to download or watch my series ad-free. The topics covered by this series include:
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!

My name is Caleb Curry and I have a passion for video and education. I have been creating videos for many years. I first started creating classes 5 years ago. I created some here and there over the years but it has been my primary focus for nearly a year now.
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 500 educational classes over database Design, programming, web development, and more. I have also done classes over Audio Production, social networking, Music theory, and a wide variety of interesting topics. On top if this, I continued to create my comedy videos as I have my entire life. I believe I have come a long way in such a short period of time and I would now like to offer payed classes for viewers to download or watch ad free.
