I really appreciate the hands-on approach. By diving into creating and recording simple compositions - as well as doing ear training - the theory part became alive and FUN.

This is a really great course. It's broadened my scope of music a lot. I never use to think much of Jazz and Blues, but I've really got an appreciation for it now. :)

From the lesson
Major and Minor Triads
This week, you'll learn how to identify Perfect 4th and Perfect 5th intervals and how to build major and minor triads. You will also learn about one of the most common chord progressions: the I IV V.
