howdy! As a nerdy guitar teacher I know most of this stuff but I enjoy watching it and your very well explained take on things from a teachers perspective…. great job! I wish I could tell all of my students to just watch your vids lol!

David Woodard says:

I am not yet sure what level your fantastic videos are aimed at in your classroom, but in respect to major/minor relations, I wonder why theory teachers always aim for the more challenging key relationships as they attempt to illustrate these instead of showing & playing the simple concepts first as I just found on Wikipedia: C minor forms so the changes in accidental on 3rd, 6th & 7th scale degrees are relatively apparent, without throwing out double flats and sharps…? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_scale)…So the novice student can more easily see and hear the changes in their simplest form.
Also, Why is it not OK to say the relative major is a minor third down C to a for example rather than a Maj. 6th up? davidcwoodardjr@gmail.com / http://www.musicedconsultantsinc.com/

Thank you so much for having this up- it seems like it'll be an invaluable resource in my journey through music. This is exactly what I've been looking for. Excited to go through the entire course (maybe a couple times).

Dana Harris says:

Excellent lesson. I understood the concept of Augmented/Diminshed/Major/Minor but never understood exactly how it was all derived.

Erik Perez says:

Hi professor, why is the natural minor scale called the “natural minor” why isn’t the 2nd degree/3rd degree called natural minor?

Best music theory lectures ever!

gamzer says:

So Eb to A# is not something we analyse as an interval when we see it written in notation. But if I was asked to pick out that interval I would hear a perfect 5th. So in that case to notate it, should I be writing Eb to Bb instead?

Hi Professor. I was searching for Academic, Educative, Instructional videos for Music Theory. for a while, I find few. But, your videos they are the number One. Thank you for helping us. I wish I have these videos when I was a kid. “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” Charles Dickens. Thank you Professor.

Hfd Okoy says:

Hi Professor. Can you explain to us please. When we have to use natural minor vs harmonic or melodic. Thank you.

Hello Dr Brellochs, thanks for the amazing video! Your teaching is incredibly clear and charming:-)

I was wondering if you could spare some time to make a few videos on music history? You mentioned that the reason why there are only perfect 5, no major 5, is discussed in history so I am very curious about that.

I am trying to learn some basic harmony and your videos really help me!
