Twenty-eight years ago today, I walked into the town library and checked out two books on music notation. In so doing, I took my first step toward becoming a musician, composer, and educator. Now, on a beautiful April morning, I’m excited to bring you more than a quarter-century of teaching insight and experience. Breaking Barlines is open and ready for subscriptions!
My online music theory videos, complete with tutorials and practice guides, are here to help you on your path to musical proficiency. And best of all, the course never stops growing. This year, I’ll be filling out the counterpoint and harmony modules with new video lessons, and a musical form module is in the works. These are just some of the lessons coming your way:
Chromatic Harmony Module:
- Applied Dominants
- The Diminished 7th Chord
