One might wonder whether music theory brings real added value to playing an instrument. The answer is yes, because music theory allows you to understand how music works. For example, it makes it easier to memorize a piece of music, because by understanding the key it is written in, you know which notes will be altered. On the other hand, music theory is also indispensable when it comes to composing and improvising, since it guides us in the creative process.
At first, learning music theory can be intimidating. But it's not that complicated, as long as you regularly spend some time practising the different concepts in order to integrate them well.
Through the exercises in this section, the theoretical concepts will become instinctive, allowing you to apply them when playing your favourite instrument, taking your playing to the next level.
