Music theory is the study of the whole structure and process of music formation.
When we see great musicians doing very creative arrangements, the motivation arises: “I need to learn music theory”. After all, who does not care about musical improvisation? Who does not want to know arranging songs, innovating, change chords, playing with several scales, making innovative solos?
But all this motivation falls apart when we encounter those boring books about music theory. We agree that 99.99% of all books and music theory courses are heavy reading, boring, poorly explained, or they are only useful to those who are already expert about the subject.
The solution for some people ends up in paying a fortune for a good teacher to teach what the books do not translate. And the rest of the people ends up living in superficiality while the ocean remains cloudy.
The purpose of this website is to provide a theoretical base about music theory, but in a simple and easy way to be understood, unlike anything you have ever seen before. Let’s fill the gaps in your knowledge, whatever they are, until you can use your creativity in essence, with solid knowledge. We hope that this website is not just another one to be forgotten, but to answer your doubts. Welcome to Simplifying Theory!
Music is not so hard. You will see.
