Music Theory With Varien

A well known producer once said to me, "Anyone can make a great wobble, but if you can write a great piece of music, that's what really matters." Once you have a solid grasp of music theory, writing great music becomes much much easier. And who better to teach you than MonstarCat artist and classically trained musician Varien!

Varien is an excellent communicator, and his musicianship is impeccable. What he had to say about repetition and simplicity as essential elements of a good melody was both right on and very helpful. For anyone who needs an intro to theory and writing real music, the Varien course is a great place to start!
