Some good thoughts on teaching and some excellent things for educators and lovers of music to hear. Currently out-of-print and unavailable on DVD, I thought I'd make it available for those interested in gaining some insight into music pedagogy and the professional environment.

In 2018 we recorded the remake of "We are the World" together with YouTube Music and 33 artists at the legendary Capitol Studios at Studio A in Los Angeles.

It was a very special feeling for everyone. We wanted to show that the online world stands together for something special. None of us would have thought that exactly this song would be so important again 15 months later.

The Covid-19 has reached us. We all have to stay at home. We all have to limit ourselves to prevent bad things happening and to save lives.

Because of this we have decided to show solidarity with all the artists + Allie Sherlock from 2018!

I am responding to the hundreds of adult musicians that are mad at me for telling them the truth about Perfect Pitch. Unless you are a baby reading this, forget about it!

Sorry, but it's not my fault. It's biology. Only children below the age of 6 can develop Perfect Pitch. This has to do the with brain plasticity of particularly the infant brain and language acquisition.

In this video I explain Circle of Fifths and demonstrate some of its many uses in music composition.

The Circle of Fifths is a visual representation of the relationships between the 12 tones of the chromatic scale. It was invented by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras and is so called as it takes the form of a circle around which each of the 12 tones are laid out. As you move around the circle in a clockwise direction, the next tone you encounter will be a 5th above the tone before it... See More

The Circle of Fifths is a visual representation of the relationships between the 12 tones of the chromatic scale. It was invented by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras and is so called as it takes the form of a circle around which each of the 12 tones are laid out. As you move around the circle in a clockwise direction, the next tone you encounter will be a 5th above the tone before it.

The Circle of Fifths lies at the very foundation of western music theory and is therefore extremely useful as you can refer to it to help you find out things like, what key you are in. If you are in a major key it helps you find the relative minor key and visa versa. It tells you which chords are available in which key. It can even help you to transpose your music into a different key and move between keys within a song.

You must be aware that the expression “avoid thumb under” does not mean that the thumb should be still or stiff and never cross the other fingers.

It means that, when playing scales or runs, the thumb should gradually approach its next position and the point is that you MUST NOT PLAY LEGATO between the thumb and 3rd or 4th fingers.

Instead, your hand should make a very little and inaudible jump when changing the horizontal position on the keyboard.

This amazing lecture series (The unanswered Question), is actually an interdisciplinary overview about the evolution of Western European classical music from Bach through the 20th century crisis and beyond a bit.

Mr. Bernstein uses linguistics namely Chomskian Linguistics to provide a framework to illustrate how music and all the arts evolved toward greater and greater levels of ambiguity / expressivity over history until the 20th century crisis.

He manages this impressive feat of popular education, by dividing music into; Phonology (the study of sound); Syntax (the study of structure) and; Semantics (the study of meaning).

this concerto – all its 20 minutes of not-particularly-contrapuntal music – also numbers among Bach’s best works.

The BWV 1052 is one of the finest examples of ritornello form. In it, a repeated section of music, the ritornello (literally “a little thing which returns”) alternates with freer episodes. The ritornello recurs in various keys, often in highly compressed or fragmented form, and its restatement in the home key usually heralds the close of the piece.

Can you tell if this is by Mozart?

Comments from various YouTube users:
- If someone told me this was Chopin I would believe them
- What astounds me is that this piece was written in 1782 and it sounds like early Beethoven! This is piece is 20 years ahead of its time
- I hear Beethoven, Chopin and Cajkovskij in one piece. This is Mozart: the source of three centuries of music.
