  • 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.

  • Dr. B Music Theory Lesson 43

    43:09

    TOPICS:
    0:00 - What is form and why is it important?
    3:22 - Terms = sectional vs. continuous, two-reprise
    4:43 - Binary (AB)
    8:08 - Ternary (ABA)
    8:45 - Sonata form

  • Dr. B Music Theory Lesson 3

    18:16

    TOPICS:
    1. Inversion of Intervals
    2. Consonant and Dissonant Harmonic Intervals - starts at 9:02 (with brief discussion of the overtone series, timbre, and how emotion is created in music)

    *DISCLAIMER: I point to the wrong term in the video for dissonant (which really means tension), and 'consonant (which really means relaxation). I also point to the wrong number when I say 3rds & 6ths.

  • Music Theory: Harmonic Analysis of a Gavotte by J.S. Bach

    7:05

    We continue our discussion and study of modulation by examining the opening section of a keyboard piece (Gavotte) by J.S. Bach. In the video, Dr. W demonstrates how to spot when and where in a piece of music a modulation is taking place, and how to diagram it using the L bracket to label the common chord.

    Although the video refers to a specific example found in a standard harmony text, what is presented here may be applied universally.

  • 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)

    Music Theory - Minor Keys Explained - Chords, Scales and Function

    This episode is everything you need to now about Minor Keys and their Chords, Scales and How They Function. I discuss in detail all 3 Parent Minor Scales the Natural Minor, Melodic Minor and Harmonic Minor. I will show you the Triads, Seventh Chords, Modes, Scale Degree Names and Roman Numeral Analysis of each scale. The minor ii V i is also explained in this episode.
    * At 12:56 I forgot to include the vii diminished triad in the box in the lower right hand corner. It is correct in the chart. So it, should be the ii and vii chords are diminished in harmonic minor.

  • Lennon, McCartney and You Guys; An AP Music Theory Lesson

    8:38

    Produced by The New York State Student Music Association, Mr. Doyle's sample lesson plan invites you into his high school music theory (AP) classroom for a lesson on chordal root movements. Using the harmonic plan from Paul McCartney's, Oh Darling as a four-part Roman numeral exercise, the students explore voice leading, non-harmonic tones, sight-singing, and finally backing up the Beatles original recording with their harmonization. Music theory teachers are encouraged to produce their own original video lesson demonstrations and submit them to the editors of the new, Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy Online ( This exciting website is a valuable resource to all music theory educators.

    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
