What drives us to spend so much of our lives stuck away in our studios? What is it that we're trying so hard to achieve?
I believe for most of us the answer is simple. We want to fulfill our need to connect!
We want our listeners to experience the fullest possible experience as their journey unfolds. And while there are numerous tools that a composer can use to make that happen, there is one tool that really is the king of emotional connection...
You guessed it. Harmony.
For many composers, harmony can sometimes seem a little too complex, technical, and... well just plain hard work! All those weird 'modes' and 'jazzy' sounding chord structures can get pretty overwhelming.
So how do you unlock the 'treasure chest' of harmony in a way that's relevant and inspiring?
Topics covered in the course
'Don't Learn it.... FEEL IT'
Our Modern Harmony course covers all the elements you're going to need to connect with your listeners fully.
“But there's plenty of places to learn this stuff" I hear you say. And “why would I take this course?”
This harmony course is different. It's absolutely relevant, practical, and also entertaining.
You won’t just learn the HOWs, you'll also understand the WHYs.
You won’t be bogged down in dry theory, we'll help you tap into your own emotions and show how the right harmony choices will be sitting there just waiting for you.
Meet your trainer
Tony Domenech, Modern Harmony Teacher
Our instructor, Tony Domenech, devoted more than 20 years teaching modern harmony to people of different levels, first in a private modern music school in Valencia (Spain) and later, thanks to the Internet, to thousands of students from all over the world.
He really loves teaching; you’ll feel it immediately as soon as you start the classes with him.
Tony is interested in harmony, melodies, rhythm, voicings, development. He especially loves films and soundtracks. He’s especially good at explaining the most complicated concepts in an easy-to-understand way.
We chose Tony not because of his expertise but because if someone can speak about harmony and making it accessible to anyone, that’s him!
