If you find the term “music theory” a little off-putting or downright intimidating, don’t worry. Simply stated, music theory gives us different options for thinking about music. That’s it! And while theory is not an end-all solution to creating good music, armed with the proper application of knowledge, you can make informed musical decisions which will help you get to your ultimate goal of creating great music. Are you ready?
This course will explore how modern-day western music has its roots in the Classical Period (1775-1825), and how the music preceding it both adhered to and broke “rules” which today many of us understand or intuitively “get” without even realizing the extent of our conditioning or enculturation. By the end of this course you (the student) will be able to state and appropriately use key terms in music theory and be able to interpret and translate its key terminology and symbology. Dipping into study of the electrical processes which underpin both analog and digital music production, you will be able to apply given equations to calculate resistance, ohms, and voltage and to distinguish two different types of electrical currents used in the practice.
