Music Theory Made Easy

Certain subjects get a bad rap – and music theory is definitely one of them! Too often, it’s made much more complicated than it needs to be, or else 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.


Are you are interested in learning any of the following:

  • How to read music
  • Chords and harmony
  • Scales, from major, minor, pentatonic, and blues, through modes and other advanced scales
  • Intervals
  • Sight Singing
  • Ear Training
  • Rhythm
  • Musical Form
  • Deepening your understanding and appreciation of music
  • Becoming a better listener

You will find loads of information on all these topics, and much, much more. We’ll start right at the beginning and build from there, step by step, until each concept is crystal clear, and you understand how to start using it. Of course, feel free to skip around and explore the site if you’d like, finding particular topics that you are interested in learning more about.

Together we’ll learn it right the first time, with a clear and down-to-earth approach that will help us relate what we learn to real music – music that we listen to, play, and love.
