TOAST’s Web “Thing”

60. Learn “Music”

That’s learning “about” music. Howard Goodall has a new series out on UK’s Channel 4 BBC, “How Music Works”. It’s truly fascinating. The guy is a freaking genius. And he can explain things well.

My Mum once tried to explain the pentatonic scale to me, tones, semi-tones, minor and major scales. Confused the hell out of me, so much so that I gave up in disgust !

Anyway, to complete this goal, I will need to:

  • Watch all TV ever made by Howard Goodall
  • Watch that “Blues” Documentary (Ken Burns ?)
  • There’s a Jazz one too I think.
  • Maybe watch “Dancing in the streets”
  • Read some books on the subject (to be defined)
