New Music Theory & Transposing Poster Released
Petaluma CA, Apr. 23, 2012
Castalia Communications has just announced the release of The Music Theory & Transposing Poster, a handsome 24" x 36" reference chart that makes understanding, teaching, and using music theory as easy as DO-RE-MI. The poster is designed for all musicians, music teachers, arrangers, songwriters, band leaders, choir directors-anyone with an interest in playing music and understanding the principles of harmony and how it works.
In addition to fundamentals such as Key Signatures, the Circle of Fifths, and the Great Staff, the poster shows, in easy-to-understand graphics, how harmony works. Castalia's famous Table of Keys™ and Chord and Scale Table™ use a system of numbers based on the tones of the major scale (DO-RE-MI=1-3-5 etc.) to represent the notes of scales and chords (the Universal Key). The system shows the notes for all chords and scales as well as which scales are commonly played with which chords to get the characteristic "sounds" of all styles of popular music, from classical to rock, county, blues, Latin, folk, pop, and jazz.
Transposition Made Easy
The poster's cross-reference system makes transposing songs and scores quick and easy even for those who do not read music. It also shows how to write chord charts and transpose progressions using the "Nashville System" (in which Roman Numerals are used to represent chords) which is used by professional studio musicians everywhere.
