Harmony and Composition made easy with NUMU is designed for the academic calendar with exercises, tests, mid-year and final exams. Once a musician understands even a little harmony (how chords are built) and composition (how chords fit together), it sets them free. An in depth study of Harmony & Composition from a ground-breaking, simplified perspective. Music is based on interval formulas. Only NUMU (Number Music) can clearly illustrate these formulas.
The purpose of this method is not to teach you to become a pianist, though it’s a good first step. Its primary purpose is to illustrate the underlying formulas and numeric patterns in music, regardless of instrument.This method will teach you a variety of things including: all major and relative minor scales; all major, minor, suspended, and diminished triads (chords – arpeggios) and their inversions; how to interpret chord symbols; how to play and write chord charts; how to play “by ear” and anticipate the chords of a song; learning how chords move in predictable patterns; and how to change key instantaneously.
Music is based on harmony. Harmony equals chords. There are only 12 basic chords. The construction of these chord are all based on the same formula. Traditional methods do not capitalize on these formulas. In addition, you’ll notice an absence of standard notation. Conventional notation does not illustrate these formulas well. This method uses an innovative alternative, NUMU.
