Correct once you know all of the rules it is okay to break some rules but not others, say for instance you want your song to be played in harmonic minor in the key of b flat, but don't want to start on b, but decide to start on a D, well then by all means go ahead, but when you are learning for the first time or teaching someone, you HAVE to start that on a b flat so that you and the other said person know the rules and don't make shit music. If you follow the rules you can make amazing pieces, though sometimes when you break them to sound like Bach, or Mozart, or other great composers. But the rules are a basic path for you to follow, so long as you stay within sight of the path you won't become lost and turn to chaos.

But the main reason you should follow rules isn't so that YOU can understand your sheet music, if you scribbled random lines and symbols on your page and could read it and play your chosen instrument does it really matter? The reason you make sheet music and follow at least the majority of the rules is so that other musicians can understand it and play it.

This is how you change it. If you're modulating from a key with sharps to a key with flats, all the notes must be made natural before being made flat. That's just how it is.

User avatar #70 - rnftrumpet (07/15/2013) [-]
The composer is actually being helpful. If you notice the naturals are on different bars/lines than the flats. This is a key change and the composer is reminding you that those 2 notes are no longer sharp/flat but normal.
User avatar #28 - snaresinger (07/15/2013) [-]
No he's not, that's how you change keys from circle of fifths to circle of fourths. The key is G-flat all the same, and if you get confused by the naturals or think the composer is "being a douche" for writing them, then you need to actually play music instead of blindly commenting on Funnyjunk.

I'm thinking I want to be a music major (I'll be a senior in high school in the fall) but I'm not entirely sure. I started band when I was in 10th grade while everyone else started in 7th, and I'm already at everyone's level. Can you give me some advice, please?
User avatar #42 - snaresinger (07/15/2013) [-]
I made the mistake of letting my math and physics grades be substandard, and got rejected from engineering school. Now I couldn't change paths if I wanted (although I did get some SWEET AP credits for my troubles). Thankfully I already know I want to be a teacher, and am getting degrees accordingly.
User avatar #43 - hlgrindstaff (07/15/2013) [-]
The lowest grade I've made in high school is like a C in Calculus which is already an advanced class, so it didn't hurt me at all. My weighted GPA is also around like a 3.7 or 3.8 or something like that so grades aren't a problem.
User avatar #45 - snaresinger (07/15/2013) [-]
Good man, you're doing better than I did. I barely graduated with basic honors haha, which was like a 3.3 if I'm not mistaken.
User avatar #39 - snaresinger (07/15/2013) [-]
Don't let your other grades fall, in case you change your mind. Pick what you want to do with your degree before you get it, because you're going to need to pick a matching degree. Education, composition, performance, history and theory, and others. Don't make the mistake of many others, and know what you want to do with your degree. During your first year at college, give a LOT of thought to whether or not you want to change your major and pick a different career. If you go through a year of college and realize you wanna do something else, don't worry about it. Better to jump ship after a year, even two, because you'll still have some GE's under your belt to make your remaining years a bit easier, so it's not a total waste of time. But never, ever stop thinking about what you want to do with your degree. Dream beforehand, and pick a degree accordingly.
User avatar #41 - hlgrindstaff (07/15/2013) [-]
Thanks. That helps. One of the main things that I've been thinking about would be whether I want to major in music ed, performance, or general, and I'm not sure what kind of jobs I could get in those.
User avatar #44 - snaresinger (07/15/2013) [-]
Ed- teaching grade school
Ed with higher degree- teaching college
Performance- hahahahahahahahahahaha don't do that (nah jk, ask an actual performance major, I don't know)
General- not sure. You could probably get a number of jobs with that, but they might be stolen by someone who specialized, which is why it's almost always better to specialize. With general music you might wind up as a substitute teacher.
Comp- Eh, you write for shitty movies, maybe you can teach. I wanted to do comp at one point, but all my comp friends tell me not to do it.

If you wanna learn more, I'd suggest emailing a professor at the university you're going to AS SOON AS you're accepted. Ask them questions, establish a rapport, know what major to pick/change into.

Hey man, being a music theory lover was what got me where I am. They didn't have theory classes at my high school, I researched things for myself and now I'm at the top of my theory classes at university. Just don't be obnoxious about it, that's the number one thing young musicians do with their knowledge. Anyhoo, that's odd, I was just watching that. Great video. Keep up with the path of pure music!

'Nother future music major here. Currently in high school, passing through my music classes with flying colors because of the entire Summer I spent teaching myself music theory with online courses. Planning to major in Music Theory and Composition. Also, personal favorite picture here.
User avatar #47 - snaresinger (07/15/2013) [-]
Hahahahaha. Awesome. Also, the major you're talking about was what I wanted to do verbatim, but comp and theory are usually two different majors (the latter is actually "Music History and Theory.") Anyhoo, good luck!
User avatar #50 - ChocolateWaffles (07/15/2013) [-]
Well a few of my top-choice colleges offer the major called "Music Theory and Composition". But, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
User avatar #51 - snaresinger (07/15/2013) [-]
If you can find a college that has gone through the accreditation process to make a major like that, then more power to you, you lucky bastard. I have to get two separate degrees to reach my dream of education and theory (but they're only about a dozen units apart, so double majoring isn't an issue).
User avatar #52 - ChocolateWaffles (07/15/2013) [-]
I was also planning on double majoring in Music Theory and something involving Math. I've also put Accounting down as a possible minor, but again, I still have a couple years of high school to worry about first.
User avatar #53 - snaresinger (07/15/2013) [-]
I wanted to do that. Only double major in unrelated fields if you're dead sure you can be so strong in both, that you could get a job in either. Otherwise, it's best to pick one and specialize and focus in it, so you can stick out among competition in the job market. Especially in today's economy, it's better to do one thing amazingly than two things satisfactorily. Unless, of course, you plan on integrating those two things (like getting degrees in music and business because you have a very strong plan to start a music business).
