How To Tune A Guitar

...to the correct alternatively-tuned pitch. Below, we’ll highlight how to tune a guitar to some important and easy-to-play-in alternate tunings.   D-A-D-G-B-E   Drop D tuning is the probably the easiest alternative tuning. In this tuning, guitarists tune their open 6th E string to D by using the open 4th string as a reference point. Many punk and rock guitar parts feature Drop D tuning.   D-A-D-G-A-D     This is a phenomenal open tuning that is simultaneously easy and difficult to play in. Playing in the key of D Major is a breeze in this key, but playing in... Read More

How To Practice Piano with Correct Technique

...v VI VII     To help test your knowledge of scales and keys, write a simple 4-chord progression and learn to play it in various keys around the piano. For example, you could play a I-IV-vi-iii chord progression in the key of C to start and the move it to gradually more difficult keys like D, E, and then F#. The basic idea here is to teach you how to add every scale, key, and chord to your musical toolkit. This knowledge can help you whether you’re a concert pianist or an aspiring songwriter.   Piano exercises are important ... Read More

Soloing Over Blues Changes

...blues progression in your ear. These exercises alone do not make for a cohesive and convincing solo. First, you should play each scale straight over each chord. Then, use the examples above or apply some of your favorite scale patterns.   This example uses the blues scale. Remember when we talked about the blues scale, we figured out that one blues scale could be used over the entire blues progression. This example is simply the same two-measure line repeated six times. Try coming up with your own two-bar or four-bar blues line and playing it over the blues progression. Pro jazz musicians do this. ... Read More

How Music Theory Can Improve Your Songwriting

...if you want to improve your songwriting prowess. Like chords, scales can be built with simple formulas. To build a C major scale, start with middle C and play every white note until you reach the C an octave above (8 whole steps). All major scales are built off of a pattern of whole and half steps. A whole step covers two half steps and spans the distance from C to D. The formula to build major scales is whole step – whole step – half step – whole step – whole step – whole step – half step. You can use this formula ... Read More

Encouraging a Love of Music Outside the Classroom

...Ask: What instruments do you hear? Is the song fast or slow? Happy or sad? If you had to draw a picture to go with this song, what would it look like? Play games. Most young children learn through play. Some songs, particularly folk songs, lend themselves easily to games. It’s fun for kids if you can incorporate movement into the music, and you know better than anyone what your child finds enjoyable! Attend live shows and concerts if you can. You don’t have to break the bank bringing your child to see a touring professional orchestra (although most orchestras do offer ... Read More
