An Online Modern Harmony Course
At the start of 2017 I began putting up an online course in modern harmony on YouTube. This course is an updated version of one I taught at Université de Montreal for many years.
Here is the course plan.
- Outgrowths of traditional voice leading: linear harmony
- Modes and scales, tonality and extended tonality
- Added notes
- Piled up third, polyharmony in thirds
- Intervals : new approaches; intervallic harmony in 4ths
- Intervallic harmony in 2nds; cells, series, and other harmonic system
- Combining different kinds of harmony in the same piece: simultaneously (stratified), and successively (eclectic, viz. transitions)
All the lessons in part I are now online on YouTube. Here are the first segments of each lesson:
Although I am doing my part for free, these lessons cost about $1000 each to produce. At this point there is not enough money available to go on. If you would like to see the course completed, please consider contributing at:
