Music Theory: The “Characters” of Key Signatures

key signatureWith so many great music websites out there, we’re always on the lookout for educational (but fun!) resources to supplement our students’ music lessons. It can be hard to navigate through all the information on the Internet nowadays, so when we come across gems like the CBC Music’s Signature Series, we can’t help but shout it from the rooftops!

This series is a great resource for learning the “key” characters in classical music – from the free-spirited D flat major, á la Debussy’s “Clair de Lune,” to the “tortured genius” C minor (Beethoven’s 5th). Each segment contains an audio clip and description, making learning these different styles fun and engaging. If you’ve ever wondered what kind of character each key signature might be, you’ll find out its “story” here.
