I’ve been creating posts about music appreciation, different styles of music, and lots of instruments, but I have never really talked about music theory. Music theory is one of my favorites subjects and I really enjoy teaching it to my students.
If you already know how to read music, then don’t lose interest, in this blog. I’m going to be spreading music theory throughout my posts. If you don’t know anything about reading music or the language of music, then I hope this helps and maybe I can spark an interest in learning to play an instrument.
