Music is made up of notes and rests on a staff. There are many aspects that define what it sounds like, such as time signatures, tempos, and what key the music is in. If you find a piece of sheet music, you wouldn’t know how to read it without knowing music theory. Moreover, if you write music, it tells you what fits within it’s boundaries.
With that said, Theory is exactly what the name implies; a theory. You can always go outside of theory and there are always exceptions to theory. However, almost all songs stay within theory, so it is a safe place to start. Below are some links that will get you started and beyond. In some advanced lessons, we’ll even explore going outside of theory.
I hope you enjoy it and if you have any suggestions or comments, feel free to let me know what they are.
