之前跟大家介紹過英國公開大開的一個八小時免費樂理入門課程，今次想介紹一下另一個都是免費的英文樂理課程。這個課程可以在udemy.com 找到。udemy.com 是一個很強大的網上平台，提供過成千上萬不同種類的收費和免費課程。我在這裡上過不少課，包括項目管理、領導能力訓練、烹飪等等。Caleb Curry，一位音樂和電腦達人製作了一套教授有開基本樂理的課程，全長約17小時，全免費的，只需要在udemy.com上註冊便可即時上課，收看預先錄製好的影片。
Caleb Curry用的樂理名詞是美式的。說真的，他有時在課上說的笑話真的不太好笑，有時說話有點踩界粗俗，不過整體上他的課程舖排很好，也包括很多不同的課題，例如：五度圈、時值、音符……很多不同的範疇。對完全沒有底子的朋友來說，也許他的教學都會有點難。不過，這課程的好處是學生可以利用udemy.com的Q&A功能向Caleb Curry問問題。雖然不是即問即答，但是起碼Caleb Curry他本人真的會回答。所以如果有課堂上的問題，可以直接跟他問個明白。
Previously, I wrote an article about a free music theory course offered by Open University in Britain. This time, I’d like to share another free music theory course with you. This course is available on udemy.com. Udemy.com has become very popular these days, offering thousands of paid and free courses on a wide range of topics. I have taken many courses from them, such as project management, leadership training, and cooking classes.
Caleb Curry, who is passionate in music and computer, has created a 17-hour music theory course for free. The course is in American English, and it is laid out in a way that is very easily to follow. To take this course, all you have to do is to sign up on udemy.com, and then you can start your course immediately.
Sometimes, Caleb’s jokes might not be that funny to everyone. Given it’s a free course, I think it is totally worth a try. His course covers a wide range of topics such as time signature, intervals, key signature, chords…etc. For those who have zero background in music theory, even though this course is meant for beginners, the content could still be a bit difficult. The good thing is that you can use the Q&A function in udemy.com to ask Caleb questions directly. So, if you don’t completely understand a concept, you can ask him a question and he will get back to you (though not immediately). Visit the above link to view the course. Hope you enjoy it!
