I saw a thread about some year-long 'crash course' that was focused more on learning chords and theory. It looks good but I was wondering what alternatives might be out there - maybe something a little more modern, or with a little more online interaction. Any suggestion?

Thanks! =D

Hey Joe, maybe check out https://tonesavvy.com/music-practice-exercises/? There are a lot of free exercises to try out. Though I believe this platform is for a student + teacher setup, I do think there is a lot of exercises for self-learning/practice.


A man must love a thing very much if he practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practice it without any hope of doing it well. Such a man must love the toils of the work more than any other man can love the rewards of it.

I did a six week course for theory, Write Like Mozart on Coursera, which has served me quite well.

smile They have two main courses, 'foundations' and 'methods' with methods being the newer one. There is an emphasis on three note chords, inversions and progressions, but also an introduction to four note chords and more advanced types. For 'modern' popular music LH patterns are introduced. You don't afaik have to take the courses but can sign up for other parts such as the 500 songs, and there are also introductory elements on improv, jazz, etc. You can get feedback on your playing if desired, or ask tutors question directly, there is also a forum, Facebook group and there are recitals. Every now and then they offer lifetime membership and will use any current subscription towards that cost if you ask. Good luck.
