Dr King’s Harmony Helpline

These resources have been created by Chetham's very own Dr King, Head of Music in the curriculum.

Dr King’s Harmony Helpline is a series of tutorials aimed at Year 11, 12 and 13 music students who are looking for some extra support in their harmony and theory work. Taking you through step-by-step with clear visual illustrations, Dr King explains the methodology behind part writing, chord progressions, chromatic harmony and much more. Although these tutorials are directly linked to A-Level Music, these videos will be beneficial for anyone who studies advanced music or who want to expand their existing music theory knowledge.
