Music Mechanics & Theory

>>6/2014 NEWS FLASH!  FJi is now offering a 4-week intensive course on these subjects!  Get more information on the Course here.

“Theory*” is such a scary word for some.  “Mechanics” has way less fright factor… it is simply “the way things work” … musically speaking… explained in a clear and easy to understand, no-nonsense way as possible!

*The word theory, to me, means an unproven concept or belief… which makes no sense when applied to music, does it?  Though the philosophy of music is opinion and theory, the mechanics of music work in set ways.  Plain and, in general, pretty simple.  Your beliefs and feelings about music might be more in the theoretical realms, but not mechanics.  We’ll cover that stuff elsewhere.

Topics to be covered: (I’ll update the links to these lessons as I upload and edit them!).
