  1. Hello everybody! The overtone serie... : I think is essential for any kind of composition, to know and master the overtones serie. It's important to compose knowing how the sounds behave. You can experiment this on the piano or, more clearly on a guitar. Do you have the overtones in mind when you compose? Here a very nice explanation and helpful article about the overtone series. Hope you find it helpful too! https://www.piano-composer-teacher-london.co.uk/post/overtone-series-harmonicity-and-anharmonicity-as-the-foundation-of-harmony
  2. I am interested in how different composers choose the keys for their works. Do you do it based on the instruments (some keys are easier than others)? Or do you try to write in a variety of keys, just to mix things up? Or do you believe in the debated 'Key Psychology', where different keys conjure up different moods? Some examples of this are E-flat major, often regarded as having a noble sound, and F Minor being an extremely sad key. Do you really think there are differences between keys, or do you think that so long as they use the same basic scale or mode that they a
  3. My teacher and I analysed different examples of Deceptive Cadences and how they are used structurally. I thought that I already knew a lot about it, but apparenlty there is much more to it. I find that very useful, so if you do too have a look here. https://www.piano-composer-teacher-london.co.uk/post/deceptive-cadence We are using terms from Caplin's Analyzing Classical Form: an Approach for the Classroom. P.S. I hope this is the correct forum to post it.

  5. Instructor: @Monarcheon Students: max. 10 Expectations: Composers will learn about music from the contemporary/modern period, analyze it deeply, and will write music in this style. This should span over about a month and composition assignments will be used. Week 1: Bartok - form Week 2: Webern - interval set/vectors Week 3: Messiaen - rhythms/time Week 4: Cage - intro to musical philosophy AKA "real theory" Special Notes: This is our first test long-form masterclass... structured to be more like an actual class. It's a test because I don't know how many people will be intereste
  6. So I am, hopefully, in my final year of my doctorate degree. Aside from my dissertation, I have to take a qualifying exam that covers almost everything I have learned in college from my Freshmen year to now. One of the best methods for me to refresh and study for such an exam is to actually teach the material, so heres my offer comes in: I would like to teach a free course in either Music Theory to a class of my fellow composers that are wanting to learn about one of these topics. The course will start with the very basics and move up to at least counter point and roman numeral analysis, po

  8. Hi, Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro for iPad will soon be available at the iTunes App Store. We are looking for teachers and musicians interested in reviewing the app and give us some feedback (we only get 50 redeems codes for this purpose). http://mdecks.com/mapharmony.html Here are three tutorials so you can see how the app works. Tutorial I Tutorial II Tutorial III It is going to be part of a seven workbook collection. The volumes in the Mapping Tonal Harmony collection have been envisioned as auxiliary material in the study of Tonal Harmony. The main objective of these b
  9. Fair warning: this post might get a bit technical. I really like thinking about music theory, but I don't know very many people I can discuss it with. Some time back, I came across the following website, which really changed the way I think about harmony and its relation to musical structure (we're talking mostly tonal CPP music). I'm wondering whether anyone else has seen this before, or is interested in taking a look at it. The site is www.harmony.org.uk by Tom Sutcliffe. It outlines a thesis he has developed (and a corresponding unfinished ebook, Syntactic Structures in Music) which loosel
  10. Hi, I tried to search first, using the... well, search function and it seems as the function has an error of some sort. I just wanted to ask about theory textbooks. I'm talking about music theory textbooks, obviously, and I would like to know some of the best ones available that covers rudimentary to atonality in depth with suggestive music and examples. It would be a PLUS if it also had jazz theory as well. Also, it would be awesome if it was no more than $200, and widely available. I did my time in a university as a composition major. It's kind of embarrassing, actually, to ask the names
