MASTER of HARMONY at the piano/keyboard! chord music theory
This is the first of a series of in depth courses of harmony at the piano. This is not a course to play by ear, which is a really weak, amateurish, and inadequate approach. These shortcuts have NEVER worked. At best, the results are mediocre. In almost 30 years of studying 3 instruments and every area of music, I have never seen a really solid musician who cannot read music. This is not a course to learn to play 4 chords. This is not a course where there are no prerequisites. For this course, you need to be at least a serious grade 1 or 2 (Abrsm, Trinity College etc) pianist. The piano dont need to be your first instrument, but you need to have practiced the piano seriously for at least a year. You have to be able to read music at a basic level, and know your major scales at the piano at least up to 3 flats and two sharps, and all the relative minors. By the way, being able to read music does NOT means not using your ear, which is a very popular, and completely mistaken, belief. People who read music use their ear all the time, and far better than anyone else, although this is never understood by people who dont read music, because one cannot understand what he does not know. So if you do not read music, this course is not for you, sorry. I am just being honest. This is an intense harmony course. Dont be fooled by the short duration: I edit out every useless SECOND, indecisions, long pauses, and every uhm, ah, or noises (I myself cannot stand any of these in an online lecture!). There is no Lets maybe try that in this course. Every single thing is decided in advance. I myself never liked maybe lessons. My question is: Does it works, or not?Unless it does, dont waste my time. It takes me up to 45 minutes to edit a 2 or 3 minutes video. I add text while I speak, which expand explanations further. This course goes really fast, and you will often have to stop the video to read the text. I try to cram as much powerful info as I can, AND I dont want to waste your time with personal stories and such rubbish. I dont fill 7 hours with fluff and waste your time in the process. Lastly, this is not a course you watch once. You will have to review it. There will be things that you probably wont get immediately: thats fine, keep them in the back of your mind, but you will have to review everything, and probably multiple times. The good news?This is normal! The best things are not as easy as 1-2-3. But once you learned them, trust me, they are very, very powerful. I have seen this really well for myself. Learn the TRUE art of harmony from a system that was perfected over 120 years by TOP notch musicians and theorists (they often were both.)Its sad. Everywhere I turn, I see products with written on: The NEW way to learn music and The NEW way to learn X instrument. No music theory needed. You dont need to read music. This is all snake oil. A real musician HAS to learn all the above. This is like building a house: build it on sand, and it will go to pieces. And I am not speaking about learning to be a top composer: this training should be done even by songwriters, and pop and rock musicians. Instead, a beginner will spend years trying to learn without learning ANYTHING, which always, always ends in failure.I see lots of teachers telling how to create a minor seventh chord. Then they cannot go any further. But as a famous composer and teacher said: A chord, taken in isolation, has no meaning. You need at least two to start creating something meaningful. These other teachers, with their new systems, only try to reinvent the wheel, and only a REALLY bad one, which cant even roll properly! The reality is, the secrets to learn to be a very solid musician, have been available for CENTURIES. It started in Italy during the Renaissance, and it then developed ENORMOUSLY in Germany and Austria in the 1700s and 1800s.This is a system of harmony that was derived from the works of master musicians such as Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, the three emperors of classical music. Very acute theorists and musicians (they were both) saw that all these composers, although each were injecting their high dose of personality, were all following the same harmonic guidelines. This system turned me from an adult who never touched a musical instrument even as a teenager, to having COMPLETELY mastered electric and classical guitar, got me practicing advanced classical piano. I guarantee that even grade 6 or 7 classical piano, is harder than mastering the electric guitar. I am speaking of course about a VERY secure grade 6 or 7 pianist, not about a weak one. I trained my ear really nicely, and even allows me to write nice tunes while I am staring out of the window! I have HUNDREDS of really nice pieces for 3 instruments, ready to be completed. I learned to open a piano score, and arrange it almost in real time on classical guitar. I learned to harmonize known melodies, or my own, REALLYeffectively. No lets maybe try this, or maybe that. I will already know what works, in ADVANCE, and without the instrument! After I had learned
