Lesson Description

Aldrine started this week's lesson by discussing the importance of ear training. He asked the guys how they go about tuning using different octaves which lead to a conversation pondering the abstract concept of octaves. We switched gears a bit when Aldrine brought up using chords to evoke different emotions. That opened the floodgates and the guys had a blast sharing their views on composing music, and breaking down some of their favorite songs. Aldrine wrapped up the lesson with some insight on one of his original songs, and some announcements.
