For anyone enrolled on the Coursera 'Fundamentals of Music" course, I've set up a a Study Group in the course discussion forum - really more to keep in touch and exchange thoughts/questions/problem areas etc -

I've just signed up to this tonight out of curiosity after seeing your post. Watched the first two lectures and they are very clear and concise, an excellent resource for a beginner. 🙂

Excellent @SilverHalide - to be honest - I have NO idea how the course will unfold, or how detailed it will be, but I have no doubt at all that for beginners to music ( and even those "amateur" players (like me ) but with self-taught experience ) it will be beneficial...  Certainly the first lecture was well within my understanding (but that's just me having "figured it out to some extent" over the years ) - Personally, I'm just looking to "consolidate" what I "know or THINK I know - and to be corrected where I've got it wrong..."   LOL

All good !

Hello all!

I am on week two.  I loved week two lectures.. I was able to get a bit more understanding of intervals..... The other stuff was pretty easy for me.  

I was over confident and rushed on the Quiz.. so I am back to study and retake that quiz.

I really enjoy the lectures and all things musical so I feel happy happy to be in the class. 

Nice to see you all there too.

Cheers.

@AnnyJ ,

Try the following link

https://class.coursera.org/musictheory-002

or if that doesn't work, search the course catalog at coursera.org for "Fundamentals of Music Theory"

I just enrolled but haven't yet gone through the course material.

Thank you @Fidelestre.

@billyG this should be interesting!smile now I only need this computer to cooperate. It's a miracle I've been able to post some timely clockresponses.

Thanks guys, I'm hoping to complete this course, but I have a major time problem.

You know that awful 4 letter word ... WORK ... gets in my way.  That's the reason I missed the last group project.  clock

I'm enjoying the course, and learning little by little, but I'd prefer to have more time between lessons to let the concepts sink in a little deeper.  Of course, it doesn't help that I'm currently doing 4 online courses, and trying to split my spare time between all of them.

Perhaps I can revisit the course once more at another time and really invest some time into more study.

All the same, it's nice to see some familiar names among the course participants, and I hope we can all help each other.

beg  dunno

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

I just signed up myself and found out you can download the lectures. Maybe you could do that and just save them for a time when you not so busy. Although I'm not sure if you'd still get a certificate, if that's what you would have liked to have as well.
