"Music can express that which cannot be said with words alone, but on which it is impossible to remain silent!"
Victor Hugo

Ever since the dawn of mankind, people have tried to express their feelings with sounds and rhythms.
So how come there are so many people today who think that they are not musical ?
Aren’t music, sound and vibration things that belong to EVERY human being?
Just take a look at little children who enjoy nothing more than singing and dancing before they are made to sit still and be quiet!
Must it really take YEEEEEARS to master an instrument?
Perhaps you have asked yourself these or similar questions…

Duncan lorien

Duncan Lorien is a well-known recording artist, composer and educator. He has spent decades researching why learning music was turned into something so complex over the centuries that it keeps a lot of people from starting to learn instruments.

Duncan Lorien


Born in 1954 in London, England, he studied classical piano from the age of four years. He studied drama and music in college and was Deputy Head chorister at the Royal School of Church Music in London. At teacher training college he found the approach to music was too serious and complex and left to begin his own approach to the subject.

Based on what he found he created the UNDERSTANDING OF MUSIC SEMINAR which teaches a new approach to learning music by combining proven knowledge from the ancient Greeks with new discoveries in the field of brain research and neurobiology.

This revolutionary approach to making music, reading music and composing has helped many well-known rock and jazz musicians, university lecturers and music teachers, as well as beginners, to reach new heights of creativity!


graduates worldwide

Open the door
to the world of music
in your life!

This incredible seminar will lead YOU in a simple, step by step, hands-on approach to fully understanding such subjects as naming notes on the keyboard and guitar, playing scales and chords from memory, the basics of improvisation and reading and playing music notation.

Over 35,000 graduates on five continents have now experienced the magic and fun contained in these seminars with one of the world’s most entertaining and passionate educators, Duncan Lorien.

Music is a language and Duncan Lorien has discovered the way to show ANYONE how to understand and communicate it!

What does the Seminar cover?

Here are some of the things you will learn during those four days:

  • Learning all the note names on the keyboard and guitar from memory and how to work out the note names on other types of Western musical instruments.
  • How to play all the scales and modes (a special type of scale) on both keyboard and guitar. Dozens of scales are easily memorized during the seminar.
  • How to play every chord on both keyboard and guitar. Dozens of chords are easily memorized during the seminar.
  • How simply the physics of sound and the history of music can be explained.
  • New breakthrough easy exercises to teach you to coordinate hands and fingers.
  • How to understand a chord chart so that you can play songs for keyboard
    and guitar in minutes not hours.
  • How to read and play any piece of musical notation in minutes not hours.
  • How to do a simple 10 minute daily practice schedule that really works.
  • No claim is made that graduates play like Elton John or Eric Clapton in only one weekend but every beginner understands music by the end of the
    weekend and professional musicians say they reach new creative heights.

In one weekend?

How can all this happen in one weekend?
By using an advanced system of easy steps developed by Duncan Lorien that ensures everyone in the Seminar fully understands and is able to apply each step before the next step is started. All the Seminar information is included in an easy to read manual with simple diagrams. The attendee interacts with the manual throughout the Seminar and continues at home with the daily practice schedule. The Seminar manual, a daily lesson
program and a DVD with all the exercises are included in the Seminar fee.

What instruments are required?
Duncan Lorien recommends the keyboard as the fastest instrument to learn music on and if you have your own portable keyboard please bring it with you as this helps to ensure everyone has access to a keyboard. You are welcome to bring an acoustic guitar as the Seminar is immediately applied to
guitar as well. Although the information is fully applicable to other instruments such as brass, woodwind, percussion or voice only keyboards or
acoustic guitars should be brought to the Seminar.

Who should come to this Seminar?
Absolute beginners in music, professionals in all styles of music, college graduates with music degrees, music teachers and even music college instructors have all attended and testified to the incredible success they have experienced with the Seminar. The youngest graduate is only 6
years old and the oldest is 91. The youngest recommended age is 13 years old (depending on study ability). Younger children will be considered on written application.

I am hosting this seminar so that even more people will be able to communicate their deepest feelings and thoughts through the language of music!

Lilli Konradi

Organizer Spain

As a child I enjoyed singing and was able to remember melodies I heard and sing and play them, but I did not want to read music yet. When they tried to force me to read notes, I was so frustrated l almost gave up on music entirely… Later I wanted to become a professional singer and so I had to deal with more music theory, whether I liked it or not. It all seemed too complex and confusing though and so I never really enjoyed or fully understood it.
However, I always thought and hoped that there would be a different way of learning music. So when my children where little I started looking around hoping to find a different approach to playing instruments so that they wouldn’t have to go through the same things that I went through.
I have no words to describe the relief and joy I felt when in 2005 I heard about and attended the Understanding of Music seminar created by Duncan Lorien and found out why it had not been my fault that I hadn’t really understood music theory before. Not only did I receive all the information I needed to understand music theory completely, but I was also given all the tools to become successful as a musician. This seminar has changed my life !


The Seminar takes place in a beautiful location near Málaga by the Mediterranean Sea.
