It is well known that many musicians, from amateurs to famous professionals, are largely and sometimes exclusively self-taught. Most of the time, these musicians tend to put music theory aside, but there comes a time when many become curious about this science and understand its utility and potential. Unfortunately, they often get discouraged and think it's too late to learn theory, that they needed to start early, and of course, know how to read. Fortunately, this turns out to be completely untrue.



Most self-taught musicians will also turn to books and realize many are written for specialists and those who can already read music. They talk about scales and how to write chords on a staff, but if you are not sure what a note is and it takes you twenty minutes to figure out where a C is, it just adds to the frustration. Yet I promise that a late start in learning theory has no impact on the quality of musician you can become and your future ability to understand it.



It is not too late! I have also felt this frustration, which is why I wrote this book. It was originally written for my "former self," who not too long ago was desperate to learn theory in a way that would finally be clear, coherent, and understandable, while not having to read notes. This is the book I wish I had back then! I know there are many people who share this feeling, and my main goal is to provide help and clarity. This book is based on simple, day-to-day common sense, and if you know your alphabet and can count to seven, I promise you will understand theory. You may actually find it surprisingly easy, and I can guarantee it will considerably improve your playing and appreciation for music.
