Podcasts for Music Instruction

by Larry

I’m a huge fan of podcasts and video podcasts and I love the the wealth of information that you can obtain from them.  I have probably 20 or so on my iTouch as I write this and it keep on growing.  One podcast that I am having a hard time finding is a good instructional podcasts for music. Most music podcasts that I find are usually radio shows presenting recommended listening in a certain genre.  Great tools to expose yourself to new music but not what I’m looking for.

I did find is the Musicology Show from Pandora. which is a true instructional show that digs inside the nuances of music it’s styles.  One show will teach you about metric modulation (aka time signature changes) and the next week you will learn about aspects of composition or what a madrigal is.  For some it will be a refresher course and for others, it will expose you to different aspects of music that would otherwise stay unknown to you. 

Give the Musicology Show a listen and tell me what you think.  Are there any good guitar/music instructional podcasts you would recommend?

Thank you Kevin! I just wish the musicology podcast was available when I had my 7:00AM music history class in college. Of course iPods and the Internet didn’t really exist then. : )
