All right, we have reached the end. Thank you so much for sticking with me all the way through this. I really hope that you got something out of it. I've learned ah, little bit more about when you're putting notes together on the mini grid how they all work together. And what is going to sound good when, um please, if you can re watch this class, try to take away those kind of key points that I made. Like like octaves always sound good. How to work with keys, how to build cord things like that. Um, I want to leave you with one little piece of advice that I always tell people when they're just starting to learn music theory, and that is that your ear is always correct. So when you write something, uh, and it sounds good to you, But then you go through all these rules that we talked about and you say, Well, it doesn't really make sense. It doesn't. You know, you can't make a triad out of that, or it doesn't fit in a key or whatever. Forget all that. Do what? Sing If your ear thinks it so...

unds cool if you like it? I think it sounds cool. The rules of theory don't matter at all. Rules of theory are only here to help you to find those things that are going to sound cool faster. That's the only thing. So that we can just start from scratch and say, Okay, cool. I can put this note here and these other notes here, and it's gonna sound get That's what theory gets us. Um, but don't ever change something that you've written that you really like to fit into the role of the theory. I hate it when I see people do that. It just makes me so sad. Because you're here is better than the rules of Keep that in mind. I hope we see you in the next class the music theory volumes to where we're gonna focus on minor keys and some other fun stuff. So thanks for sticking around. I will see you in that class

Ratings and Reviews


this is great and very helpfull class, i make and wirte music for more than 2 decades and never gave much about theory, i trusted my feelings to what sound good and what not. Bu t recently i became interested but it all seemed very difficult to me and i didnt got the points behind music theory and how everyhing works together. This class was a game changer for me.. music theory is so simple if you have somebody to explain it in words so that you finally can understand it, and thats Anthony, he is a brilliant guy and he explains it in a simple way that you can easily understand whats going on. This is perfectly the case with this course, the sections are short and to the point, not much talking around and leaving the path, you can make fast progress end learn how music theory works, this is a 5 Star ***** course and hopefully there is more to come

Fabulous course. As a person with dyslexia, trying to remember the notes and chords as letters only is impossible. I love the visual way the chords are demonstrated and explained. I was originally put off by the "electronic" aspect, thinking it was only for learning how to use piano edit roller. However, as a beginner in playing the piano, this course is applicable to all who want to learn and understand music theory in an interesting visual way. Looking forward to next lesson. Will definately be purchasing the course after. Fantastic tutor and course.

Very good class!! Makes it much easier to understand and apply the rules of theory. Anthony is also very wise to suggest to trust your ears, even if what you've written doesn't fit into those same rules. I am so very grateful for you putting this together, Anthony, and for making it available for the general public, Creative Live. I am also very glad I was given the opportunity to learn english in my home country (Brazil), in which many barely know how to read and write in our own native language (portuguese) due to our public education being so bad (which, by its turn, has to do with the myriad of vile creatures that inhabit our representative chambers). Tks XoXo!
