Berklee is developing many new MOOCs that will be offered on Coursera and we plan on offering specializations in each of the areas that are currently covered in the Modern Musician Specialization. Learn the basic concepts and approaches needed to understand, create, and perform contemporary music. === If you have a passion for music and are curious about how it works, or if you are a musician who learned to play by ear without formal study, this course will provide you with an engaging introduction to key concepts and approaches needed to understand, create, and perform contemporary music. Taught by Berklee College of Music professor George W. Russell, Jr., the course includes six lessons that delve into harmony and ear training—two areas of intensive focus for every entering Berklee student. The course will teach you the major scale and minor pentatonic scale, and how they are constructed. You will learn what intervals are, how to sing them, and how to find them in music. The course explores tonal centers and how to find the key a song is in, in addition to common time signatures such as 4/4 and 3/4. You will learn how to build chords—major and minor triads, and major and dominant seventh chords—and how to build a common chord progression—the I IV V. You will also learn how to recognize the blues and AABA song forms, and write a basic chord sheet to express your song ideas. In addition to the video lectures, each lesson features Berklee student performances and interviews. The students share their musical journey and offer advice for those wanting to study music. The course culminates with an assignment that asks you to compose and perform a riff blues tune using the minor pentatonic scale. Above all, the course is designed to share the joy of creating music and sharing it with others. Shannon Jacob will be your Teaching Assistant (TA) for the course. A recent graduate of Berklee, Shannon majored in Contemporary Writing and Production. Hailing from the island of Sri Lanka where she was the Director of Music.inc; a non profit show choir that granted the wishes of terminally ill children. She is a firm believer that music can be used as a powerful tool to educate and inspire those around her.
