Recent feedback from users.
I have literally browsed 100's of sites for something like this. I purchased your Music Theory Rhythm (Rhythm is my weak point). This is the first and only comprehensive rhythm workshop, its amazing. It is very helpful, very "straight to the point". I dont know how to thank you.

Chaim, just hearing from you and that it's helping is thanks enough, best wishes, Brad.
I'm very impressed by this course. I like the way the information is presented, its content, the overall philosophy, the follow ups, the getting back quickly to questions. Great job. On a scale from 1 to 10, I give it 100. This is based on what I've seen in my first two weeks.
I'm 41 years old and have been learning Classical guitar for the last three years. (No previous music background). I like my teacher, although his focus is mostly technique. This course is a good compliment to my guitar lessons. -- Carlos
Thanks for writing the music lessons and providing a structure. I have had some adult lessons and I have been frustrated at the lack of coherent structure. using a cooking analogy - How can you bake a cake if you don't know what all the ingredients are???
Many Thanks. -- Anne

Whether you are teaching music theory to children
or studying for music theory advanced placement you need to have a good music
theory teaching tool.
I've made this 15 minute video to describe technique and principles of music and some of the issues of teaching and learning music and why I've developed this home study course.
Many of the music theory instructions lack
full application of teaching and learning techniques, that is they
give basic principals without the full music theory training by
covering the principal in practice and application.
Music theory is taught by either at the moment need of the student or
through the piece meal approach of standard theory method books. Most
of these books are good at telling the music student elements of music
theory, but don't engage them in the use of these principals of music.
Why Concentrating On Playing Not Theory is Slow
Many teachers really concentrate on the instrument and the music theory
instruction is left for the at the moment need. In practice this works,
but leaves the student usually trying to grasp several concepts of
technique and theory at the same time.
To teach music theory this way becomes a drawn out process and the
music theory training is secondary rather than primary for the student.
I've observed that when the theory is done more holistically the
students actually achieve greater skill and accelerated application of

Here To Start Teaching Music Theory With this Course Now
Students and Teachers are Using this Course in a Couple of Ways.
The lesson plan was put together as a twice a month lesson for 12 months covering over 4 normal years of theory. The student would be given a lesson and then have two weeks to complete the assignments, any additional reading material, or put the principles into action. This is how the monthly subscription course is delivered.
Some are getting the full course and following the lesson plan on an accelerated schedule completing some assignments in a few days and taking extra time on bigger assignments. We caution that the lessons need to be absorbed so it's not always practical to race through them.
The individual workshops were developed to allow students to really concentrate on specific areas of music and can be used as stand alone teaching tool. With well over a 100 pages of materials in each workshop you have plenty to learn.
The standard lesson plan allows you to develop across all 4 workshop areas with lessons from each subject on a rotating basis to tie all the principles together when you want to teach the full theory course.
The Music Theory Course comes with a no-questions-asked, no-hassle, guarantee.
Here's the thing, I sell this course through "Clickbank" and I have to play by their rules. They require an 8 week, money back guarantee. I'm absolutely fine with that, I'd do that anyway.
I stand behind my materials completely and know you'll be completely thrilled with the content and, more importantly, the result.
If for any reason whatsoever you decide you aren't
completely satisfied with the music theory course you can request a refund imediately through your clickbank email purchase reciept.
It's as simple as that.
Why is this Course Only Available Digitally?
We found that printing doubles the cost of the course, to make it affordable in a hard copy format I'd have to compromise on the layout, quality, and easy of reading. I'm just not willing to do that at this time.
It is designed to be easily read on the computer and comes in a PDF format that is also searchable.
It isn't necessary to print all the materials. Only certain worksheets
need to be used in this way so that the student can print what they
need when they need it.
Still not sure about the course?
Let me help you make a decision. Here are two PDFs of parts of the course that you get when you start the class. They explain methods used and the introductory setup about how to get started and what the beginning lessons will cover.
