Welcome to the COMPLETE Music Theory Fundamentals Guide!

This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take their music career (or music interest) and turn it into a business. Whether you are an active musician, an aspiring musician, or an aspiring music manager or agent – this class is perfect for you.

For years I’ve been teaching Music Theory in the college classroom. These classes I’m making for Udemy use the same syllabus I’ve used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost. I believe anyone can learn Music Theory – and cost shouldn’t be a barrier.

My approach to music theory is to minimize the memorization. Most of these concepts you can learn by just understanding why chords behave in certain ways. Once you understand those concepts, you can find any scale, key, or chord that exists. Even invent your own. If you’ve tried to learn music theory before, or if you are just starting out – this series of courses is the perfect fit.

Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated Udemy instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a “Mover and a Shaker,” and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes. 

Throughout this class, If you get stuck, you can review the videos or post a question, and I’ll back to it as fast as possible. 

This class is Part 12: Sequences and Secondary Dominants. It finishes what would be the second semester of a college music theory class (according to the typical American academic system for learning music theory).

In this class, we will cover:

  • Analyzing Bach

  • Identifying Sequences

  • Melodic Sequences

  • Harmonic Sequences

  • Diatonic and Chromatic Sequences

  • The Descending Fifth Sequence

  • Alternating Inversions in Sequences

  • Ascending Fifth Sequences

  • Descending Third Sequences

  • Secondary Dominants

  • Chromatic Chords

  • Tonicization and Modulation

  • Secondary Leading Tone Chords

  • Leading Tones To Five

  • Tonicizing Other Scale Degrees

  • Leading Tone of Anything

  • Analyzing Beethoven

  • Resolving Secondary Dominants

  • Embellished Resolutions

  • Irregular Resolutions

  • …and much, much more!

And of course, once you sign up for Part 12: Sequences and Secondary Dominants you automatically get huge discounts to all the upcoming parts of this class.

You will not have another opportunity to learn Music Theory in a more comprehensive way than this.
