    The Circle of 5ths

    The Circle of 5ths is one of the most useful tools in music theory, but it is often overlooked in traditional piano lessons. In this course, we’ll break down the many connections between the circle and popular chord progressions. By the end of this course, you’ll be integrating the circle into your practice, and you’ll have an enhanced understanding of not just how music theory works, but why!

    The Number System

    This course is about the Number System: what it is, why it’s useful, and how to practice it. You’ll learn the simple principle of numbering each note in the major scale, and how it can transform the way you think about music. I chose this as the very first topic to teach for the Academy because, in my opinion, this is the single most powerful concept for developing your ear and learning to improvise.

    Triad Pairs & Spreads

    A triad on its own is... nice. A triad pair on the other hand is... SPICE! In this hands-on course we'll look at all of the spicy, beautiful sounds that can be made with triad pairs and triad spreads via custom musical examples and practice tracks that will keep you glued to the piano. Not only will you learn the secret to gospel style chord melodies and luscious accompaniment, but you'll also deepen your understanding of the keyboard map as we take each exercise through numerous keys.
