Ableton has launched a new site, Learning Music, that offers a set of free browser-based music tutorials.
- Get started
- Notes and scales
- Song structure
- Advanced topics
The lessons cover beatmaking basics, but also manage to introduce a lot of music theory, ranging from building scales to chords and inversions.
They also use some interesting interactive tools to cover things like song structure:
The fact that the tutorials are browser-based and interactive makes them a lot more immediate and compelling that traditional music education texts.
Ableton’s Learning Music site is free to use and it doesn’t ‘push’ the company’s products.They just want to get more people making music.
