In this system, the names of the notes stay the same when switching between the parallel major and minor. The chromatic scale looks like this: Minor Keys Poco a poco accelerando 6 8 Largo 3 4 This melody introduces the use of the ascending and descending forms of the melodic minor scale. Lewis L.

Make sure to sing each example in an appropriate key. Another technique for use when all else fails is to imagine the seventh as a downward step, with the second note moved up an octave.

Is it a good idea to go through with this major, or should I start my freshman year with a different major and try to join the music program the following year?
The type of school you go to has great bearing on the answer to your question. If you are a strong academic student, and apply to a liberal arts college, you would not be required to declare your major or majors until your junior year. You could take music classes starting freshman year along with classes relevant to your other major plus gen ed requirements, before deciding your direction. If you go to a university, you would be best off applying and auditioning during your senior year of high school. Music majors take sequential classes as well as private lessons across their four years, and delaying those at a university would definitely require at least a fifth year to graduate.
And if you were to wait until your sophomore year to audition at a university, unless you were taking lessons and practicing regularly and preparing for your audition, your proficiency would probably not be at the level it would be if you were doing these things as a senior.

Thanks Lenore! Im glad I perservered till the end, else I wouldnt have found your question and the answer to mine! My daughter desperately wants to major in music. She has had no formal training on the piano other than 4 formal lessons. However, she has learned a lot on her own and via video tutorials.
I have not been able to financially afford music lessons for her unfortunately. She is a senior and she has an awesome talent for songwriting and I want her to be able to achieve her dream. However, I just do not know the best way to go about it. I was thinking if she attended our local community college and took lessons in piano while completing her undergrad studies, she might have a chance to pass an audition-based music program.
Is that a realistic goal? She has been playing the piano for 5 years. When she writes her songs, she has the tune and lyrics all mapped out. Her best friend, who is classically trained, will help her with the more intricate piano work.
Pitch Systems and Curwen Hand Signs: A Review of Literature
We wish we were having this conversation when your daughter was a sophomore in high school — we would have referred you to summer music programs for high school students to help her advance on piano and had many other suggestions to help your daughter prepare for college auditions. If your daughter has already applied and been accepted to a college or university for Fall, she should inquire about lessons there. A class in music theory would also be highly beneficial — perhaps she can take music theory as an elective.
A number of community colleges have strong music programs, and with lessons and a strong practice schedule your daughter can definitely increase her proficiency. She may be able to successfully audition to transfer to a 4-year school after a couple of years at community college. But I have good experience playing, but I lack the reading aspect. I always wanted to pursue a career in music, mostly teaching and performing on the side.
What would you recommend. Finding work in music requires a combination of at least these: skill, knowledge, musicianship, passion, perseverance, and networking. And still there are no guarantees. Many musicians find they need to be competent in several areas of music and on several instruments in order to work in music. I am a junior in college and I play flute and alto saxophone. You will likely find others to perform with in community ensembles, bands, orchestras, etc.
I am currently 17 and looking at colleges I would like to attend. I have been playing guitar off and on for the last couple of years and started taking it seriously a couple months ago.
Due to the lack of time between school and sports, and my recent learning, I am not at a level where I would pass an audition. I am planning on majoring in Journalism and would love to minor in some sort of music study to learn theory, composition, and ideally, take lessons. What would you recommend I do? I play contemporary and folk guitar, but not classical guitar. I want to learn everything I can and be aroung serious musicians and earn a degree in Theory. Do all degrees in music require an audition to get in? I just want to learn theory, music history, composition, language and voice in a classroom setting.
Problem is I barely have any music experience aside from choir, which I love and have been doing since elementary school. I planned on taking my general education courses for the next to years, then transfer somewhere else. Should I start taking music classes here first? What steps should I take if I want to take this potential career in music production more seriously?
Where do I start?
