If I’m ever asked what one thing a songwriter can do that will be guaranteed to improve songwriting technique, my answer is always: get some music theory chops.
Today, for one day only, my video-based music theory course, “Easy Music Theory,” is being offered at a 50% discount. To take advantage of this half-price deal, visit the Easy Music Theory page.
Why am I so sure that a bit of theory will help you? Theory does important things for you:
- It helps you identify and put a name to the musical concepts you hear in your favourite songs. That makes it easier for you to experiment, modify, and/or otherwise use those ideas in your own songs.
- It speeds up the rehearsal process. You can quickly get your ideas across to studio musicians, many of whom are well-versed in music theory.
- It helps to stimulate musical imagination. It’s easier, when you have a theory background, to manipulate musical concepts.
I designed this course to be easy. It contains a video for each lesson, an instruction page that teaches the concept, worksheets, and quizzes.
It’s designed to be self-directed, meaning that you should be able to work through the materials with no extra help needed from a teacher. And if you do need some help, I’m always happy to jump in! You can email me with your specific questions at: gary [at] pantomimemusic [dot] com.
If you’ve always wanted to have a better grasp of music theory, you’ll never get a better deal than this one! It’s a course I’ve used with my own high school and university beginners, and I’ve known of teachers who have used it with students as young as 10 years old.
It’s a one-day only sale, and I hope you take advantage now of this opportunity.
