Learning music theory doesn't need to be stressful or boring. With Musition 5, you can learn music theory and general musicianship in a fun and engaging way using it's easy to use software.
In the past few years, there have been a few high profile musicians that have proudly displayed their lack of theory knowledge almost as a badge of honour.Yet although it is possible to become the next guitar hero or singing mega star without a formal education in theory, most musicians will have at least unwittingly picked up some technical knowledge in varying amounts as they learnt their craft.
Music theory helps you to become a more well rounded musician; able to become an expert at reading sheet music, recognising time signatures, notating rhythms, understanding intervals, matching keys signatures and the language to talk about the specifics of music with other musicians when performing in a group.
Whether you play classical, jazz or more contemporary styles; if your a performer or composer or recording producer, learning theory gives you an invaluable skill set which will impact all aspects of your musical life.
