MU 109 Lectures and Other Video
Video lecture will be posted here no later than the evening before the scheduled class.
Lecture 0: Introduction to the course; syllabus overview (25 min)
Lecture 1, part A: Major scales and keys, some history (21 min)Though it hurts me to say it, Part A of this lecture is more in the nature of interesting background. It may help things make more sense to you, but if you want just a brass-tacks review of major scales and key sigs you can get by with Part B only.
Lecture 1, part B: Major scales and key signatures (26 min)
Lecture 2: Scale degree names (17 min)
Lecture 3: Minor scales (26 min)
Lecture 4: Pentatonic scales (30 min)Note that all the info is in the "Scales" handout (in the Topics area) as well.
Lecture 5: Intervals (34 min)There is also a 9-page primer on intervals in the Topics area.
Lecture 6: Interval fluency (20 min)
Lecture 7: Proper beaming notation (20 min)
