Music Theory Made Easy

Certain subjects get a bad rap – and music is definitely one of them.  Too often, the study of music is made much more complicated than it needs to be, or else is not explained in a way that relates to real music.  Almost as if music and the study of music are two different things – and that doesn’t make too much sense, does it?

The truth is, music theory is all about understanding real music and what makes good music, well… sound good.

So let’s learn it right the first time, with a clear and easy-to-understand approach that will help us relate what we learn to actual music, music that we listen to, play, and love. 

And this connection is really the key to it – that’s when you have those light bulb moments, when you really “get it”.

And that’s what it’s really all about.
