Welcome to the COMPLETE Music Theory Guide!

This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take their music career (or music interest) and level up. 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 13: Modulations and Form. It starts what would be the third semester of a college music theory class (according to the typical American academic system for learning music theory).

In this class, we will cover:

  • Modulation and Tonicization

  • Rules for Modulation

  • Using Pivot Chords

  • Analyzing Mozart

  • Modulating to V using Pivot Chords

  • Modulating to the Relative Major Using Pivot Chords

  • Pivoting from I to IV

  • Pivoting from i to v

  • Rules of Pivoting

  • Direct Modulations

  • Abrupt Modulations

  • Analyzing Bach

  • Modulations by Secondary Dominant

  • Modulation Challenge

  • Mary Had a Little Modulation

  • New Developments in Form

  • Binary Form

  • Rounded Binary Form

  • Binary Form in a Minor Key

  • Phrasing in Binary Form

  • Balanced Binary Form

  • Simple Ternary Form

  • Composite Ternary Form

  • …and much, much more!
