À propos du cours

After a tremendous response from learners on Coursera, Berklee Online has created a Developing Your Musicianship specialization, and this course is the third course in the series. If you have a general understanding of music theory or if you have completed Developing Your Musicianship I and II, this course will continue to help you understand musical concepts, enabling you to create and perform contemporary music. Taught by Berklee College of Music professor George W. Russell, Jr., the course includes four lessons that delve into an intermediate level of harmony and ear training. The course will introduce you to new key signatures, and explore how they are constructed. You will continue to train your ear, learning to differentiate between the various intervals and chords that were explored in Developing Your Musicianship I and II. You will learn how to borrow chords from parallel tonalities (modal interchange), and how to write more common chord progressions. The course culminates with an assignment that asks you to compose and perform a composition using popular chord progressions. As with Developing Your Musicianship I and II, this course is designed to share the joy of creating music....

First of all , I love this course, I love George, I love Berklee Online, I love Berklee:)

I come from China and I'd never studied online instead going to school. But this course has given me a lot of thoughts.

Prof. George is very kind and patient when teaching us, explaining those significant words and phrases over and over again. He always plays a lot of pieces allowing me to enjoy learning music. What's more, Berklee Online combines vision and hearing together, such as learning voicing leadings with notes moving on the screen, showing chords notations when George playing the piano... especially, I really appreciate the new way of participating homework. I can not only submit my homework, but also check others homework, which can improve my skills of writing feedbacks and, it's like doing homework over and over again, for more than one time, so that I can be a lot more familiar to those knowledge. In addition, I can discuss with fellows to solve my problems and share resources with each other.

There's only one thing:) If the professors, teachers and assistants can show up more frequently in discussions, chat groups, live chats, even our e-mails, and so on, allowing us to interact with them more, it would be better for both to help, understand and communicate with each other:)

Anyway, it was the best experience EVER learning music!

Mr, Russell does it again. An amazing teacher with clear, short and very concise lessons. This man is a saint and a genius with the passion and patience of someone who leaves an impression on anyone who watches his videos. This man will change your life if you let him. He has changed mine prolifically and given me the faith and confidence to continue. The class is so easy to understand and the way he explains everything is so simple yet effective. Take this whole specialization. you will now be disappointed if music is what you really want to persue!

I enjoyed this course, especially the Chord substitutions and Modal Interchange. The modal Interchange segment raised a number of questions for me and I was disappointed that we did not going into modes as well as look at the relative minor (Aeolian). What about Locrian, Mixolydian, Dorian etc? sus chords and dim chords were covered briefly. I'm not sure about the bVI and bVII chords. We seemed to rush through that section. I will revisit so that I'm sure what's going on. I'm still not sure that in Modal Interchange can we use any chord in the second scale or just the chord at the same position in the scale? I will find out.
