    Music Theory Lecture - What Every Pro Musician Needs To Know

    41:33

    This is my first music theory lecture on what every professional musican needs to know. I discuss everything from, key signatures, intervals, buliding triads and seventh chords, extended notes and upper structures, chord construction, harmonic analysis, mode to chord relationship, the major, melodic minor and harmonic minor scales and modes. I also explore the construction of auxiliary scales like:

    Tonic Diminished
    Dominant Diminished
    Whole Tone
    Augmented Scale
    Multiple Pentatonic and Blues Scales

    And much, much more!

    Introduction to Music Theory

    57:28

    While I was a research assistant in Singapore in the Sound and Media Computing lab of National University of Singapore's School of Computing, my supervisor, professor Ye Wang, gave me the great opportunity of holding one lecture in CS4347: Sound and Music Computing course. The lecture aimed to provide a basic understanding of music theory, and it targeted computer science students. In order to do that I created the concept of explaining music theory using feelings and I presented it receiving an amazing feedback.

    I would really like to hear your comments on this. I think that explaining things by simplifying them and by using simple analogies has a great potential to raise interest and inspire passion to students. What do you think?

    Special thanks to professor Ye Wang and to Zhiyan Duan who handled the recording of the lecture.

    Bernstein, The greatest 5 min. in music education

    6:00

    This amazing lecture series (The unanswered Question ), is actually an interdisciplinary overview about the evolution of Western European classical music from Bach through the 20th century crisis and beyond a bit . Mr. Bernstein uses linguistics namely Chomskian Linguistics to provide a framework to illustrate how music and all the arts evolved toward greater and greater levels of ambiguity/expressivity over history until the 20th century crisis . He manages this impressive feat of popular education , by dividing music into; Phonology (the study of sound); Syntax (the study of structure) and; Semantics (the study of meaning)

    QUESTION IN COMMENTS
    andrewnorris1
    Hello Dr. B., Here is a question which confuses me, but I felt sure you would know the answer. I am using the wonderful book, Tonal Harmony by Kostka, I think you know it. There is a modulation exercise on page 296 with an extract of Bach: Jesu, du bist mein. The key signature has 2 flats yet it states the key as c minor and the modulation to E flat occurs at bar 5. When you put the Roman numerals under the chords it makes sense, the first chord as a i (c minor tonic). I then went to Youtube to find a recording of it and someone has made a very colourful analysis but entirely in E flat and the first and final chords are listed as vi, submediant. Firstly, is this a mistake? Secondly, what is the reason for writing one key signature when the opening and concluding chords suggest a different one. Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this. All the best, Andrew

    The video answer is here:

I discuss how to use Chord Tones on strong beats (Beats 1-2-3-4) and Non-Chord Tones and Passing Tones on weak beats (the and of 1-2-3-4). I demonstrate examples of how and why this works. It will show you how to play lines like a real bebopper. Links To Follow:

    Music Theory 101 - Complex Music Terms Explained

    9:09

    Advanced Music Theory -Dodecaphonic, Octatonic and X-Y and Z Cells

    In this episode we explore more advanced concepts of scales, pitch cells and 12 Tone Rows. I discuss terms and concepts to know for the contemporary composer. Some of these concepts were created as a way for people to analyze the developing music of the time. As Atonality and Serial Music was flourishing in the early 20th century, theorists needed to come up with new terms to explain these new composition techniques. While I prefer many of the jazz terms or nomenclature for some of these concepts, it's important to also know the appropriate terminology used by contemporary music theorists.

    Terms Discussed:

    Diatonic
    Pentatonic
    Hexatonic
    Octatonic
    Dodecaphonic
    Tetrachord
    X-cell
    Y-cell
    Z-cell

    Voice-leading Basics lecture 1

    5:55

    First in a series of lectures preparatory to writing four-part chorale style. In this one, I define voice-leading and relative motion.

    I made this for Music Theory 1 at Goucher College, but I hope it's useful for others, too.
