Join Brooks Frederickson, PhD candidate in the Duke music department, for this first in a series of workshops designed to increase your understanding around the theoretical fundamentals of music through examples pulled from current indie, pop, EDM, and hip-hop hits. Producers are encouraged to follow along with their Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) of choice-Ableton, Logic, Garageband, Reaper, Pro Tools, etc.

No prior music theory background or experience needed, all are welcome!

This workshop will address the following questions:

What is a scale?
What is an interval?
What is a chord?
What is a chord progression?
How do I add variety to my chord progressions?
How do I dissect and understand a song's harmonic structure?
