Music Theory Resources

Music theory involves several basic components that combine to make up music. One major part of music is rhythm, which determines the lengths of sounds and rests between sounds. Harmony involves combinations of notes played together. Melody refers to the notes that the musician plays in a specific sequence and with a specific rhythm; it's the tune of any song. Learning music theory allows you to understand the language of music, which makes it possible to create new music or read and play music that someone else has created.
