How Music Works

This animated video is the first in a series which explores the question of how music really works and how people can learn to improvise or compose their own music. In this first video we discover that almost all modern popular music comes from just seven notes, and that these seven sounds can actually be created anywhere on our instrument. In other words, the actual names of the notes don’t even matter. This astonishing realization is the key to many important personal discoveries for the creative musician.
