NEED A THEORY, HARMONY, OR SIGHTSINGING TUTOR?
Introduction to Keyboard Harmony and Figured Bass:
While in harmony class we learn what good voice leading looks like, keyboard harmony teaches us what good voice leading feels like. You need both skills to succeed. Being able to sense harmony your fingers will make you faster, smarter, and more resilient than your peers, and will provide a foundation on which to learn tonal counterpoint later on. For piano players keyboard harmony represents the synthesis of theory class with practical lessons. For non pianists, keyboard harmony solidifies their harmonic and analytical skills. If someone tells you figured bass is useless, outdated, racists, or a western colonial conspiracy, don't believe them. Keyboard harmony is the foundation of classical music, and practicing it will remove the barriers preventing your musical thoughts from becoming your musical reality.
