Traditionally, music theory is taught with a piano as the main tool to learn the concepts. In this class, we take music theory concepts and apply them to the Ableton Push controller. Using the Push, we can find the patterns for chords, harmony, and intervals that will get you producing, songwriting, or composing with the Ableton Push.
For the best success in this course, it is recommended students have already taken the other Music Theory for Electronic Musician classes. They are:
Music Theory for Electronic Musicians I
Music Theory for Electronic Musicians II: Minor Keys and More
