Why We Exist

I have found a lot of music theory lessons are taught in a very dry and boring way, more like a history or maths class. This isn't necessarily bad, and the teachers sure know their stuff, but it doesn't connect with a lot of musicians. And many of the musicians I know actually have a fear of music theory. They think it is something they just can't understand. And these are great musicians so why is this? 


Musicians are creative people, and the truth is music theory is just not often taught in a creative way. It doesn't engage them. So I wanted to change this. I find music theory incredibly fun, and something that can be used creatively, to get the best out of our music. So I created Music Theory Centre to bring music theory to musicians. To make it creative, fun, and most importantly - practical. Theory isn't there for the sake of it, it can actually help us create the best music we can.


And so, our lessons are taught in an engaging and modern way to help you focus and actually learn what you need to know. All topics are shown with musical examples and animated graphics so you can see exactly what is going on. This will help you learn the music, and is something all types of learners can engage with.
