Music Theory Made Easy
Certain subjects seem to get a bad rap – and music theory is definitely one of them!
Way too often, it’s made so much more complicated than it needs to be, or else it’s 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 really doesn’t make too much sense, does it?! No. Uh-uh, not here.
Because the truth is – music “theory” is all about understanding real music and what makes good music sound good.
If you’re interested in any of the following, this site was totally made for you!
- Deepening your understanding of the music you listen to
- Learning scales, from the basics (major, minor, pentatonic, and blues) through modes and other advanced scales
- Understanding chords, chord progressions, counterpoint and harmony
- Finally getting on the path to reading music
- Sight Singing
- Ear Training
- Musical Form
- Increasing your appreciation of music
You will find tons of information on 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. (That is the point, isn’t it?)
The lessons are organized to be in a logical order, with each lesson building on the previous one, wherever applicable. But of course, feel free (in case you didn’t already) to skip around and explore if you’d like, you’re bound to find something you’re interested in learning more about!
Together we’re going to approach it right the first time, with a clear and down-to-earth approach that’s going to help you apply what you learn and start making better music and being more confident about your music. Come to think of it, there’s really nothing “theoretical” about it. Hmm… maybe I should think about changing the website name?
