CHART WRITING 101: A Master Class
Monday evenings 8pm-9pm
Chart writing is about communication: before we can communicate music, we must first understand its concepts and notation. Once we’ve covered key signatures & time signatures and harmonized major and minor scales, we will visit topics more directly related to chart writing, song form, road maps, transpositions and how to notate accompaniment. By week seven you will be able to write a clear and concise chord chart that musician will have no trouble reading.
Seven Week Program
Week 1: Road signs, rest and simile signs etc. Major and minor harmonized scales.
Week 2: Intro to the Nashville Number system. Converting the Nashville Number System to chords
Week 3: Intro to Form Analysis. Key signatures and time signatures
Week 4: Putting pen to paper: applying these concepts
Week 5: Identifying common non-diatonic or borrowed chords and how to chart them.
Week 6: Transposition
Week 7: Course overview and final test
Facilitated by Steve Briggs
