Will Edwards Music Theory Terms & Concepts Essentials TUTORIAL
If you’re an electronic musician working with Ableton and music theory seems mysterious… “Where do scales come from? How do beats work?”… This course will clearly explain all essential music theory concepts. After completing this course, you’ll be able to understand, use and talk about music theory – and do it in the context of Ableton Live and the piano roll (a.k.a. MIDI editor)
After years of live performance and composition in Ableton (and with Push 1 & 2), I’ve collected the lessons that are most essential to all electronic musicians in all genres and I’ve put them into this course. You’ll learn where scales come from, how beats are constructed and discover critical melodic elements like arpeggios!
- Major scale building formulas
- Minor scale building formulas
- Key Signatures
- 1/4, 1/8th and 1/16th beat subdivisions
When you’re finished with the course, you’ll get to work on consolidating your knowledge on the Push pads. If you have any questions as you move through the course, I’m always available via messaging or the discussion board. Don’t hesitate to ask questions or reach out to me!
