Make Your Audience Feel Emotions
Whether you are a songwriter who wants to get started with writing commercial music or a chronic learner who has always wanted to understand how and why music conveys emotion more effectively than anything else, this course offers insights that you'll find very rewarding.
Develop a Compositional Approach
Learn by watching 3 walkthroughs on emotional music cues conveying "urgent", "calm" and "spooky". Watch and listen as the music speaks for itself AND you get step-by-step explanations about how the music examples work. These lessons are learned from my award-winning songwriting, studio production work and academic study in music and compositional theory.
I've always believed that music is one of the most powerful ways to convey emotion and help a group of people "get on the same page." Rhythm, harmony and melody all play a part, but a good composer can elicit specific emotions quickly - in order to do that, you'll need a strong vocabulary in basic music theory and you'll want to know what your ideas "sound" like before you even play a note. This course combines the art and science of this process. Plus, you'll get a full primer on music theory essentials like:
- Building major and minor scales by hand
- How major, minor and half-diminished chords are built from major and minor scales
- Learn to compose with chords as numbers, using numerals (how the pros do it)
- Write elegant, expressive and concise music that gets to the point and delivers the goods
