Anyone Can Have Fun Learning Music Theory!

I believe that everyone should have access to music education no matter where you live. Reading music is a fun, exciting, challenging, and rewarding process that allows us to experience the creative process of another human being. But when you explore it deeper, you will unlock a world of understanding: one that follows patterns and logic like many other languages. When you’re finished, my courses will make anyone at any level an expert.

Why Should I Take a Music Theory Course?

Honestly, music has changed my life profoundly and I feel so lucky to be able to play whatever music I want in whatever style I want. Learning music theory is what helped me accomplish this. As a high school music teacher, I have seen the impact I have made in the lives of my students through teaching music and I wish to pass that on to you guys.

My Story

I was like you.

I really enjoyed playing music but understanding it beyond reading was something I struggled with. Over and over, I would practice to memorize, perform, and later forget.  I always wondered how others could just play off the top of their heads or figure out a song without even looking at the music. I knew that music theory was important but it was hard to learn and my teachers didn’t seem to know the right thing to say to me.  It was really frustrating.

My passion for the subject carried me through highschool and I studied saxophone and piano privately.  I prepared my audition for University and enrolled as a first year music student.  I was so eager to finally figure everything out.  Well, there was a catch.  I needed to know more theory only this time, the pace was much quicker and I was getting left behind.  I spent days upon days figuring out concepts using any resource that was made available.  I went to office hours, found smart friends, and signed out textbooks – all with the hope of something clicking for me.  This process took years before I found my way to clear musical understanding.  It was hard work.

But now I am on the other side.  Now I can look at everything I overcame objectively and I ask myself, was all that grunt work really necessary?  Was there an easier way?

I decided to go into music education to become a high school music teacher.  I began compiling resources to help others.  Gradually over the years I became very good at anticipating questions and helping students understand complex ideas.  Why? Because I had to learn them myself in what seemed like a million different ways.  Years and years of music classes helped me refine my practice to a fine art but it’s really been the years following that which have CHANGED EVERYTHING.

Teaching students that may or may not have interest in music theory was one thing.  What I wanted to do, was bring my revelations to those that were like me.  Those that wanted to learn how to understand music but didn’t know where to turn or where their next step was.  It was people like us that I shifted my attention to.  I asked myself, what is the best way I can teach an engaged learner to become an expert at theory if they just walked in the classroom knowing absolutely nothing?  This question is what prompted me to spend over 2 years crafting an answer to and what I came up with is a masterpiece of 27 heavily researched and logically structured lessons featuring a wealth of high quality learning resources and supportive community to achieve this ambitious goal.  I came up with the Music Theory Complete Course.

This course would be a one way ticket to expert level understanding for a reasonable price so that in the long run, people like us would end up saving significant amounts of money and time.  I knew that if I had a course like this in front of me, I would have signed up immediately to avoid all the headache reaching my goals the hard way caused me.  Now that I had this tangible course in front of me, I had to let people try it.  Once they did, I began getting terrific feedback.  I had students telling me that my explanations were so clear and my visualizations were what really put the concepts into their minds.  I was told that if they only had learned theory like this, they would have saved themselves years of frustration!

I felt great being able to help so many people.  I knew that what I had worked.  I knew that I could help so many people with learning music theory!

Reality Check

This course will require work to be done on your part.  If you are of the mindset that just by watching the videos and not doing the assigned work nor practicing sufficiently before moving on is going to get help you reach your goals, this isn’t the course for you.  I will teach you the quickest most effective route I know to advanced music theory understanding but you have to meet me half way.  I spent years working, researching, scripting, recording, editing, planning, designing, and investing to make this the best course for my students, I need you to put the work into doing the necessary work to get you there.

Want to know the best part to all of this?  You can take this at your own pace!  You will have purchased a life-time of music education that you can keep coming back to over and over to refine your skills or learn something new.

Think about it, if you wanted to learn everything we offer on this website, putting the expertly planned and researched lessons aside, you would have to hire a private teacher with credentials at a rate of $40-50/hour.  Assuming you have a perfect memory and don’t need to spend extra lessons on learning repeated material that has already been explained to you, you would be looking at spending anywhere from $1080-$1350 per year!  You would also be on the hook for a two $40 theory books to graduate you through all of the concepts.  Best case scenario? $2160 and you can’t go back to hear lessons from the past-you have to continually pay for new lessons.  It also wouldn’t be something you can do in the after hours, when you have some quiet time to yourself.  At MusicTheoryLessons.net, my course is specifically focussed on helping you reach your theory goals as quickly as possible, while ensuring you receive a strong musical foundation that is seriously affordable.  My Music Theory Complete course is yours for $499.99.

Please know that I have poured my life from years of work into this.  Not weeks.  Not months.  Years.  Why?  Because I wanted to create a course that absolutely works.  That’s why I want to offer you a risk free 7 days money back guarantee.  I want to you to be successful so if I am not the right teacher for you, you have a week to let me know, tell me what went wrong and I will happily refund your tuition.  It’s important that my students are happy and I will keep working on improving the experience to ensure the best learning environment for everyone.
