  1. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi all, I'm a classical music listener for quite some time, but all I've done was listening to random albums. Although quite a few years have passed since my listening, I found myself often unable to tell which piece is conducted by whom, or even what the piece that's being played at the moment...

    hey, i was wondering if anyone could shed any light on this, it sounds OK to me when i do a I IV V progression , if i drop the IV chord down a half step. Whenever i search "flat IV substitution" all i come up with is flat III or flat VI , i can't find much info on this. Can anyone explain the...

    i really like this song, and am really curious about what makes "it" what it is. is it la pompe/ gypsy jazz? i feel this one is similar genre, but could be wrong im guessing its some sub-genre of jazz, but whenever i search jazz its not like this at all. this is more lively, yet darker...

    Hello, I am working on a three-voice counterpoint exercise. The top line was given to me. I am not sure if I did it correctly. What would you do to fix what I did wrong?
  5. Music Theory
    Hi, maybe beginner question and im kind of self educating myself /trying to learn, so forgive me if my ideas are disjointed , and ty for you patience: If i make a chord, like Dm7, how do i figure out what it resolves to? I get that you look at the tones, each one has a tendency.. but then i...

  8. Music Theory
    Hello I'm coming from a non-academic background and just trying to understand the rules of voice leading for pursuing a future composing career. I've always found difficulties in understanding this topic in notation on paper. Only recently I've read an article about presenting the progress of...

    i just wanna understand whats going on here: https://www.e-chords.com/chords/motley-crue/dont-go-away-mad-just-go-away in this 80s rock song the chords go C Dm F which im assuming is just some random 1 2 4 progression they pulled out of the air? the question is: in the chorus it goes Bb F C...
  10. Non-Classical Music
    I am interested in learning how to use techniques and paradigms from various non-Western cultures in my own music. I know how to use various scales to make my music sound “exotic”, but I’m looking to deepen my superficial understanding of what makes Hindustani, Middle Eastern, South African...
  11. Music Theory
    I'm fascinated by how harmony was used by the composers who first stretched tonality to its limits without abandoning it, such as composers ranging from Mahler and Strauss to Debussy and Ravel. I also feel that I don't have a solid grasp on the theory behind their music. Do you know of any...

    Dear Forum, in Corelli's 8th Concerto Grosso in G Minor, Op.6, I found an (apparently) exceeding bar. Pace is 3/4, but this one lasts three half-notes, for an amount of 6/4, that is double. Is this a common practice, in classical music? Could anyone tell me more about this? Thank you.

    Hello Take a look at this recently discovered 'Cheat Sheet' by Classic F.M. in the United Kingdom: I have read through it and understand some of it, but I can not work out what the diagram is telling me, or what part of the cheat sheet it is referring to. It is this part: Would someone...

    Hello. This forum sounds fun, I can't wait to become a part of it. I am in need of some advice - some advice I know I will be able to find here. I recently (about 10 months ago) fell head over heals in love with CLAUDE-MICHEL SCHONBERG'S 'Les Miserables' and 'Miss Saigon'. I was so moved by...
  15. Non-Classical Music
    Hi! So I was listening to one of my favourite RuPaul songs - Rock It (To the Moon). Regardless of your opinion of the artist or the song, I wonder if anyone finds the harmony potentially interesting - the chorus (starting at 0:50) seems to follow the chord progression F#-E-B-D-E. The key...

    If I had a test question and it was to correctly name this interval - C to F Flat - Would either of these answers be correct? This is just for future reference. - C to F Flat is a diminished Fourth - C to F Flat is a Major 3rd Sense it names C to F flat which is a fourth would I have to say...
  18. Music Theory
    So I am very confused on this and I have looked around alot in my textbook for a better explanation but I cannot find it. The questions ask me to name all the perfect intervals. The examples the text's says they are all perfect (Unison, 4th, 5th, and 8ves of course). So I looked through the...

    Hi, I am doing my bachelor's thesis in Computer Science and Music, and I'm working on automatically analyzing music. I've already developed methods for determining what key a given piece is in assuming that it's in either a major or minor key, and that it is in the same key for most of the...
