Description

How Music Works (Level 1)
For People who Play

Tired of waking up from that nightmare where you accidentally played a C# on a G chord, and everyone threw beer bottles at you? Wondering why a tune gets stuck in your head? Does your head explode when you lose your place in the middle of a song?

This class is designed to deepen your understanding of music so that you can play WITH people better than ever. Each time we meet, you’ll come away with new tools, techniques, ideas, and a more solid understanding of how this music thing works. And that will help to build your confidence when it comes to making music with others.

This is a practical hands-on 8-week class designed to give you useful concepts, techniques, and DIGESTIBLE music theory. Instructor Nate Allen has spent a combined 20+ years in a music conservatory and performing all kinds of music in all kinds of ensemble situations. Each weekly lesson is designed so that students will leave with new tools and ideas to apply to their playing and songwriting immediately. All instruments and playing styles are welcome. This course is not for the complete beginner, students must have a basic grasp of how to play their instrument. If you consider yourself qualified to play in a BMF Rock Camp then you are qualified —and encouraged— to take this class. 

Here is an idea of the kinds of things we will cover..

Ear training 101 - hearing intervals and cord qualities

The number system and the power of I IV V vi

Rhythm, time, and groove. Exploring different styles of music

Scales - beyond major and minor

Chord construction and evoking emotions

Earworm analysis and creation

Arranging, creating parts, dynamics, intensity and energy

Mental practicing - writing and learning music without an instrument

Wednesday nights, for 10 weeks.
7:00pm-8:30pm
Sept 14  —  Nov 16
Tuition: $325

Some basic ability to play an instrument is ideal to enter this class. If you consider yourself to participate in a BMF rock camp, then you are not only a qualified candidate for this class, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. You will fill so many knowledge gaps in this course.
