Transforming Your Harmonic Writing

Saturday the 23rd of June - 13:00-15:00 BST (UTC/GMT +1 Hour)

Do any of these sound familiar?... When can I use a suspension? How do I create more interesting chord progressions? Why doesn't my composition flow? What are passing and auxiliary notes? Where can I add them?

People often find writing harmony complicated. There are certainly many resources out there on writing harmony, but why must they make it so unnecessarily difficult! During this 2 hour LIVE webinar we're going to focus on four things that will really make your harmony come alive! You'll learn all about inessential notes, how to make use of extended chords, the Diminished 7th, Neapolitan and Augmented 6th Chords and their resolutions will be unpacked, and understand the use of suspensions. Ideal for people studying for advanced music theory, for those taking School, College, or University courses, for musicians who want to understand what’s going on in the music they are playing, and for composers who want to strengthen their writing skills!

During this LIVE event, we're going to reveal the secrets of...

Inessential Notes

What they are and where best to use them.

Extended Chords

Using extended chords to create more interesting parts.

Chord Progressions
