ObjectiveDo you wish you knew more about what notes "work" when soloing on a song? This class develops your understanding of harmonic progressions (chord progressions) and song forms to be better equipped for improvisation (and memorization).
OutlineClass will cover harmonies that include diatonic chord progressions, secondary dominants, passing diminished chords, substitute dominants, and modal interchange through weekly work on Roman Numeral Analysis and Tonality Identification.
RequirementsA basic understanding of chord types is helpful but not required. A basic knowledge of key signatures is the minimum knowledge needed to benefit from the class.
