I always believed that what was built with on logic, we don’t need to remember, because we already understand.
understanding is the ultimate learning breakthrough almost in every subject in the world.

I hope I will answer here most of the questions on reading chords names and understanding them, and with that, clearing this subject for a lot of us so we will be able to advance together to more complex subjects in our Music Journey.


after a long time that I couldn’t write anything, I happy to say again, Hello everybody and I ‘m happy to be back.

in this time that I didn’t write here, I was busy with lectures and lessons which made me realize a very disturbing phenomenon.
a lot of the new students that I was teaching and lecturing to use their visual sense to make critical decision about their sound in the studio,
which for me is very disturbing, because the most simple logic says :

Question : which sense is used to percieve music ?

Answer : Hearing

Question : which organ is serving this sense ?

Answer : the EARS.

We percieve music through our ears.



Emotional Connection – Scales

Posted: February 25, 2011 in Composing

hi everyone,

I am glad to get back to writing articles in my blog after this crazy week,

but the most important thing I learned in this week is :


and us, musicians, we Love Music, so lets keep music Original, Refreshing and Fun 🙂


today we are going to take a look at the emotional connection of scales, and their effect.

I will write the simple, general way to see the emotions scales can evoke,


which elements ? why to combine them ?

this is what this article is all about, music is built from elements, combining these elements creates a creation/piece, or even a fraction of music experience.

the problem of music elements is that they don’t always combine very well, it is a subject to experiment because there will always be something new to find and explore.

for the example I will take my own music, and will share what I was thinking about when I created it.


Emotional Connection – Chords

Posted: February 7, 2011 in Composing

chords are a big part of todays music,

and their effect on our emotions can change with the context of the music :

the chord that comes before, the chord that comes after, the melody, the timbre of the sounds used in the piece, speed (harmonic rhythm),

and lot more ingredients are effecting the impact of chords on our emotions.


Emotional Connection – Tempo (BPM)

Posted: February 6, 2011 in Composing

I will try to keep things short this time, you already know what the emotional connection series are talking about,

if you need a reminder, here it is :

let’s move on 🙂

Tempo is the speed of your creation, it is caculated by BPM (Beats Per Minutes).

each style/genre of music theoretically have its own BPM and the BPM (Tempo) have a great effect on the atmosphere of the song/creation/music.


look at the title, and ask yourself, did you really planned your composition and arrangement the best way ?
are  any of the instruments might make problems in the mixing stage ?
can I do anything in the composing or arranging stage to make it easier to mix later and sound better ?
