Duple Threat

Where would we be without music theory? Well, in a place much similar to where we are today! There’s no shortage of Soundcloud rappers and aspiring EDM stars who have fudged their way through enough YouTube tutorials to be able to piece together a Trap banger. Casually surveying the musical landscape of America, you could be forgiven for thinking that the artistic aspect of music was killed off some time in the early 00’s.

Fret Not

I’ve taken a dive into music theory myself. I’ve always been very interested in learning it but had no clue where to begin. As time passes, we’re presented with better and easier methods of learning. I’m an avid proponent of Udemy and found a fantastic course on music theory over the weekend. On top of that, I’ve signed up for piano lessons at a music shop by my office.

I’ve already noticed a huge improvement in that I can read sheet music and make a half-hearted attempt at playing basic, one-handed songs. There’s still a long way to go but I’m excited to be making progress toward something I’ve always wanted to be good at.

  1. I think it’s always a good idea to go back to the basics before you call yourself a ‘master’ in something. I like to learn how things came about and you can also learn from mistakes or evolution of others. The theory of music is very interesting I think and can give you great insight. Probably some disappointments too once you start to deconstruct some ‘musical’ pieces.
