by Andrew Krause

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
This method covers the basic Music Theory needed by current electronic music producers. Contrasting with classical music theory approaches, this book is aimed to focus on the basics used in popular music. Topics covered include: basic drum groove programming, chord progressions, scales, melody writing, arranging, transposing and modes. The digital component of the book consists of activities to be completed in the DAW (digital audio workstation) of your choice. Activities reinforce topics covered by the book, in genres of popular electronic music (from house, to trap, to hip hop, etc). After completing the method, students will be able to compose music, without needing MIDI packs or samples. Students will also better understand how to use these MIDI packs, samples, and other tools, in conjunction with their modern compositions.
Description
In a time period when composition happens on the computer, Music Theory is more important than ever. A computer is like the most sophisticated orchestra on the planet. Music Theory helps us to compose music for this "orchestra", in a systematic and purposeful way. Theory allows us to better understand our influences, and our own music. This method covers the basic Music Theory needed by current electronic music producers. Contrasting with classical music theory approaches, this book is aimed to focus on the basics used in popular music. Topics covered include: basic drum groove programming, chord progressions, scales, melody writing, arranging, transposing and modes.
