Lots of information

I would consider this an undergraduate course in music theory. There is a lot of theory packed into this series. My only negative, and it is not the course, is it contains too much info! I am more interested in a crash course for DAW work, and this gives much more than that. If you are looking for theory using midi/DAW (piano roll/drum editor) this does not really touch on that. Theory is shown exclusively using standard music notation. However, as stated, this is a very comprehensive course on music theory.

helpful but feels cheap

The theory is good, and I did learn a lot, but the lack of attention to detail makes me feel that I did not get a real course but an amateur explanation. Every single time there is something written, there is at least one spelling mistakes which makes me think not much time went into making these videos.

All the right notes

This series covered all of the essential points in a very clear and direct manner. It is centered around the piano but the concepts will apply to all musicians. There are downloadable exercises to practice along with and if you really want to get these concepts into your head, practicing them over and over is the only way. Do yourself a favor and spend the time on the exercises.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing drums in high school at age fourteen. Like most kids my age around then, I was into progressive rock. Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. They rocked my world. A few short years later though, my musical life changed. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Milt Jackson spoke to me in such a profound way that it left me no choice but to take up vibraphone.

These great players, along with  drummers like Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones changed not only the way I thought about drumming, but also music - and by extension, life - as a whole. I realized life was meant to be a creative endeavor. The idea of improvising based on a loose set of guidelines and rules permeated into my psyche even when I wasn't holding a pair of drumsticks or mallets. But if I am going to be perfectly truthful, I have to hold Henry Miller and Woody Allen equally responsible for shaping the way I view and experience the world around me. 

2. What training have you had?

I am currently an Apple certified Logic Pro. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and  began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. This went on for many years until I decided it was time to complete my degree - which I ultimately did with a major in Political Science and a minor in music. 

It was at this point that I formed my current band Nightshift. We are going in to our twenty third year now - playing commercial one nighters like weddings, corporate events, etc. Don't turn your nose up at it though - it has allowed me a wonderful quality of life. It gave me the freedom to go back to school and complete a post graduate degree in Communications Studies - all the while supporting myself by playing weddings.

3. When did you get into recording?

It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing. Based on nothing more than the recommendation of one of my band mates who had an old Atari, I jumped in head first and bought a Mac LC ll, along with a version 1.1 of what was then Notator Logic. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. 

I opened up my own commercial home studio in 1998 and began doing a variety of projects, working on radio jingles, artist CD projects, and whatever came my way. A couple of years later a colleague called me up - desperate. He was working at a post production house and one of the editors had just quit. They were doing audio post for a weekly TV series and needed a Pro Tools editor - and fast! And so, once again, I jumped in head first into what would ultimately open up my world even more - the world of Pro Tools. 

4. People you have worked with/for?

Focusing on Logic, I built up a small but loyal client base and my phone kept ringing for Logic tech support and instruction. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. Even the music stores were giving out my phone number at this point! This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The more of it you do, the more calls you get to keep doing it. At least that's the way it should be!

As my Logic chops kept growing, I was hired by an old buddy of mine, Len Sasso, who was then an associate editor at Electronic Musician magazine, and began writing some columns for them. I had a blast doing them - and really learned to focus and express my thoughts in a concise and clear manner. This lead to a collaboration with LA based composer Terry Michael Huud on the 2006 film called Civic Duty - which was certainly one of the highlights of my professional life as a composer. 

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I wake up every day excited to boot up, and create. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Enriched by the stimulation and creative freedom this modern music making software brings to my life. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. My years of experience both using and teaching these programs has taught me the best way to make the user comfortable with these complex programs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from I'm so impressed I bought this when I was in college. It's been years now, and I was in awe then - I'm still in awe now. I am so happy I have found a place in which I can dive into professional studies within music. As a student of music since my childhood, this is site/place is one I am so grateful for. Thank you for doing a phenomenal job of creating this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Music Theory Explained These videos are a comprehensive review of basic music theory and terminology. A ‘must see’ for most musicians I would say and very well presented too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from A Great Refresher and More! I studied music theory for a couple years in college, but I wanted to go a little further than the classes I took. I wanted to learn more about mixture, modulation, and other "off-key" techniques, as well as anything else I could pick up along the way. This series definitely delivered! It served as a great refresher toward the beginning for the material I had learned in class, and the end of the series was exactly what I had been hoping to learn with secondary dominants, interesting chord movement, as well as different types of scales and moving between them. He really builds the series up quite nicely, starting from very humble beginnings and explaining things in a way that makes a lot of sense. Excellent job, and I would highly recommend this series to anyone looking to get a basic to intermediate understanding of music theory!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent Intro I learned much in this course. I've been making noise for a long time, now I want to understand the theory behind it and so this course was great for me. I'll be able to take better advantage of some of the soft and hard ware I have collected now. I think I will be inspired because I have new ideas of how to approach how I have fun.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from a clean introduction and beyond at the last stations, i got lost somehow between all these scales etc., You really really have to practice and repeat and practice...

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent ressource I'm like a kid in a candy shop! I feel there is everything to get back to production. (I'm a old Impulse tracker/groovebox/sampler user) so when i bought studio one I found out groove3 had a tons of quality content! on everything! from music theory to 'inspiration' to studio one and all the more advanced content that i will need to tackle later (mastering etc).
