Music Theory for Electronic Musicians 2: Minor keys and More

Music Theory for Electronic Musicians 2: Minor keys and More

This course is an extension of Music Theory for Electronic Musicians, in which we learned how to work with the piano roll editor in a DAW to make harmonies, melodies, and whole tracks. In this class we expand on those ideas and work with minor keys, focus some time on melody writing and bassline writing, and talk about how different tracks work.
Extensive Analysis
The most important part of this class is an extensive analysis of tracks by Daft Punk, Avicii, Skrillex, and many more. In each of these analysis segments, we look at their tracks on the piano roll editor, and talk about why they sound the way they do, and how you can use similar techniques in your own music. Each of these segments picks apart multiple elements of the song and dissects it in an easy to understand way.

Featuring tracks by Avicii, Aphex Twin, Deadmau5, Skrillex, Daft Punk, Boards of Canada, and more!

“Great intermediate music theory class. Everything’s well explained and the analysis excercises are great. Quite a challenge if you try to do the excercise before the teacher shows his results but really really helpful. “

– Gregor Ittensohn
