A HISTORY OF CHORDS

Understand the inner workings of harmony in 8 weeks

 

Why does Bach sound like Bach?

Why do the Beatles sound like the Beatles?

This course looks at the answers to those questions through the lens of harmony. You will learn music theory basics, like the structure of chords and what it means to be in a key. You will learn how chords are put together to create a particular sense of style. You will learn to read and understand a musical score. There are four modules in this course, and in each one, we will listen to, look at and analyse a piece of music from the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

This course is ideal for anyone who has a working knowledge of chords but wants to gain a deeper understanding of how harmony works.

 

This course will run again later in 2020.
