Music Theory

Music theory is a way of noticing, understanding, and describing of the way music is built.

Imagine if you had to build a house, but all you could see as an example was what's visible. You'd have to build the house without being able to see the stud beams, the way the foundation was dug or the cement was poured, the plumbing, the electrical wires, etc. You might be able to create something that looked like your house, but… you get the picture! It's hard to create or re-create something without understanding how it is built, and this understanding is what music theory is about.
