Music Theory Level 2: Part Ten

via Kadenze

Overview

Welcome to Music Theory Level 2: Part Ten

Diminished Chords


This course is focused entirely on diminished chords, how to use diminished chords, and some of the mystical properties of diminished chords. This course forms part of the complete Music Theory Fundamentals Guide.


This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take their music career (or music interest) and turn it into a business. Whether you are an active musician, an aspiring musician, or an aspiring music manager or agent - this class is perfect for you.


For years I've been teaching Music Theory in the college classroom. My approach to music theory is to minimize the memorization. Most of these concepts you can learn by just understanding why chords behave in certain ways. Once you understand those concepts, you can find any scale, key, or chord that exists. Even invent your own. If you've tried to learn music theory before, or if you are just starting out - this series of courses is the perfect fit.


In Part 10: Diminished Chords we will cover:

  • Tools of Music Theory
  • Identifying types of diminished 7 chords
  • Whole diminished chords
  • Half diminished chords
  • Training your ear to find diminished chords
  • Expanding tonic with leading tones
  • The viiº6 chord
  • Doubling in the viiº chords
  • Tendency tones
  • Unequal fifths
  • Resolutions for viiº7 chords
  • Expanding tonic with viiº
  • Harmonizing with viiº7
  • Mystical properties of the whole diminished chord
  • Pivot chords
  • 4/2 Chords as tonic expansion
  • Using ii4/2
  • Neighboring 4/2 chords
  • Passing 4/2 chords


You will not have another opportunity to learn Music Theory in a more comprehensive way than this. All the tools you need to successfully learn Music Theory are included in this course and the entire course is based on real-life experiences - not just academic theory.
