Ableton Music Education

Post by Kozmyk » Sun Aug 02, 2020 2:00 pm

I'm most impressed with Ableton Live's learning pages.
https://learningmusic.ableton.com/
They can take one from complete musical novice to a pratical understanding of notes, scales, modes, chords ansd inversions.
Along the way introducing Song Structure, key Styles and more.
A fine piece of work,
Well done Ableton.

misread the post as a lack of theory in the material. :oops:

There is also the free Learning Synths site and the "Making Music: 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers" paid book, which is free for a while due to the pandemic.

https://learningsynths.ableton.com/

For Live specifically, the manual and help pages are good places to start:

(Also, you can clearly hear, interact and create stuff in the Leaning Music and Learning Synths sites, they are interactive sites, not just for reading.)

Excellent info Mr ? pottering.
Thank you for all that.
I must say that these information resources provided by Ableton are marvellous, and their interactive pages are going to help people no end.
I'm an old dog in terms of synthesis but there's always more to learn, and music theory ... well, there's no end to it.
I'm a neophyte in the realm of Ableton Live though.
I don't think that's going to be a problem with all the info available, both from Ableton themselves and their very 'Able' user base.
(See what I did there 😜)

I picked up quite a bit on Day 2 here, having watched a bit of Rachel K Collier (same home town) and presently
