How Music Works
With you on every step of your musical journey is the comprehensive suite of How Music Works tutorials, which explains music in clear, simple language you can relate to. Packed with over 118 printable topics, and illustrated with 350 diagrams and 750 demonstration sounds, the tutorials start with the very foundations of music, and advance through to topics which are valuable even for professional musicians. How Music Works provides a pathway you can follow as you learn about notes, chords, scales and rhythm, and how to put these elements together to produce great music. You will learn how to use all of the musical concepts in practical ways directly within Songtrix as you develop your accompaniment, improvisation and songwriting skills.
Every musical concept you encounter in the tutorials can be explored in more detail within the Songtrix workspace. A variety of interactive tools can quickly show you the relationships between different notes, chords and scales, to see which will work best with each other. Then you can enter these chords, scales and melodies into the worksheet to construct and playback your own musical ideas. Songtrix lays out the musical possibilities for you and indicates which are most likely to succeed, so you can feel free to experiment creatively within a guided and supportive framework.
A musical phrase or chord change can be progressively developed into an entire song, using the powerful and comfortable editing tools in Songtrix. Instantly turn a chord sequence into a realistic musical performance using the wide range of automatic musical styles supplied. This is great fun! As you explore, you will become familiar with the essential musical elements of each style. You can also build your own musical arrangements using real musical events such as chord strums and drum rolls. Events can be created within Songtrix, or recorded in real time from an attached Midi instrument such as a keyboard. Audition and select your chords from the menu, then design your own rhythms and melodies to accompany them. You can even start with a style, then customize it to get exactly the sound you want.
Songtrix offers you the best of both worlds when it comes to printing the music you create or download. While you get to work with the intuitive visual events, Songtrix compiles and displays staff notation automatically and accurately for you as you go. You can instantly switch between the different views of your song, so you can see exactly how your musical events will be presented in staff notation as you edit them. This is a great way to build and refine your sight-reading skills, while avoiding the tedious and complex process of manually editing staff notation symbols. Songtrix offers many options for compiling and layout of symbols, so staff notation can be printed in several different ways. Other printed formats such as lyric sheets are also available.
