#beginquote# Wagner used more dissonance, and Verdi used the tritone, but was not considered harmonically progressive for his time (like J.S. Bach was). Music has progessed harmonically so much throughout the eras that the stable/unstable concept is not particularly useful for me. I prefer to talk about dissonant and consonant chords and sounds rather than stable and unstable. Thanks for the nice words. I have been many things but I am a teacher above all. I have earned the degree "Master of Music" but I mostly work with young kids now so I find it fun to discuss music with other interested folks. Can you tell me more about what kind of music you are working with so I can be even more specific with my answers and comments with you? I am now semi-retired from life as a trumpet artist and am mostly writing and playing jazz now. My "paying gig" is as a junior high band teacher now, but I have taught college jazz, music theory, band, trumpet and choir too. My performance experience is in all kinds of music, but I made the most $ playing jazz, big band jazz and reggae up and down the west coast. I was researching music sites in the middle of the night a couple weeks ago and came across this one. I've enjoyed visiting with you all. I hope I don't sound like a "know-it-all", but when I have knowlege to share I try to do a good job explaining it for folks. LATER, GOOOOOOROOOOOO #endquote#
