Music Theory….

The video-blog today deals with what I consider an important topic – music theory. This is the study of how music is written down and all too often it is left out of instrumental lessons. I do believe this to be a mistake……

You can purchase my book, So You Want To Play The Piano?, which is packed with practice tips and useful information, here.

  1. Pity many piano and instrumental teachers don’t teach theory along side (parallel to) their given instrument as Melanie has stated here. Theory really does set students up for a greater sense of the ‘big picture’ and makes them much more well rounded musicians where pieces actually make more sense and encourage students to not just ‘play the notes’ with no understanding.
    Thank you Melanie!
