Piano Fundaments for Producers

Piano Fundaments for Producers

Designed as an introductory music theory course, Piano Fundamentals for Producers focuses on the most important aspect of music theory for a record producer: understanding how notes and chords work together. Numerous successful, popular music producers do not read or transcribe music. The common thread between those producers is a deep understanding of music. In particular, successful producers understand major and minor chords, scales, intervals and how to achieve the melodic content that expresses their emotional intent. Reading and transcribing music is not a prerequisite to becoming a popular music producer, but an understanding of music theory must be accomplished. No prior music theory knowledge or experience is needed in order to succeed in this course.
