How To Get Your Kid Started With Music Theory

How do you get your kids started with music theory? Why would you want to anyway?

Music is a large part of my life. I love listening to it and making it. I have been playing music for about 20 years now, I’m 23 now but did my first lessons on the drums at age three. I am a self taught guitar player and have been writing my own songs since age 8 when I got my first acoustic guitar. So needless to say, music is a very big part of who I am and what makes me happy.

I’ve never been one to go by the book and learn things just because it says in some book that that is how you are supposed to do it. So when it came time for me to teach my own son how to play the guitar, I didn’t want him learning boring scales or having to learn an entire song by heart just to play one little part in the song. I wanted him to be able to write his own music because that’s what really gives you the ability to make whatever kind of music you want.

But before he can even do that he has to be able to read music and understand how all the different components fit together so that he can pick out his own notes rather than simply relying on playing

Music theory is a complex subject, and can be a bit overwhelming for parents trying to help their children learn it. This article will explain why music theory is important, the types of music theory out there, and some helpful tips on how to get started.

Trying to get your kid interested in music? Music theory can be a great way to impress them with what they’ll learn, but it’s an intimidating subject for many beginners. It’s so much more than knowing the names of all the notes on the scale – there’s also rhythm, chords, scales, harmony, key signatures and more!

The good news is that music theory is fascinating and can actually be really fun – once you’re past the basics. So if you’re ready to give it a try, stick with me as we go through how you can get started with music theory!

Music Theory – Why Should You Learn it?

So why should you bother learning any kind of music theory at all? After all, most beginning musicians are happy just playing by ear. And if you enjoy this approach then there’s nothing wrong with that! But when you start learning about music theory you’ll find lots of things that will make your musical experience richer.

One of the greatest benefits of learning about music

There are a lot of reasons why parents should encourage their kids to learn about music theory. Music theory is the study of how music works and one of the best ways to learn it is through music software, apps and websites.

Tons of fun**

Music has always been a huge part of children’s lives, they sing, they dance and they listen to their favourite songs on the radio or CD. Now, there’s an exciting new way to listen, play and learn about music with the use of a computer.

Tons of free stuff**

The internet has made it possible for anyone to download free games that feature popular tunes from all genres. There are also thousands of educational sites available for children, many that teach about music theory in an entertaining way.

Music theory is important for all kids**

All kids can benefit from learning about music theory. Whether your child wants to write a song or just be more knowledgeable about the world around them, a little bit of knowledge goes a long way in understanding music. There are no limits to what kids can do once they understand basic music theory. The most important thing is to have fun!**

So your child has expressed interest in playing an instrument. Good for them! They will have fun, and it can help with skills such as time management, discipline, and listening. Even if they don’t take it to the next level, there are still many benefits of playing an instrument.

If they have expressed interest in piano or violin, that is excellent. Playing these instruments is great because they can be self taught, and a lot of parents already own them. But most children haven’t studied piano or violin before, so it can be hard to know where to begin. This is where music theory comes into play.

Taught at the right time and pace, music theory can make learning an instrument much easier by giving the student a deeper understanding of what they are doing and how the parts fit together. Music theory also helps the student understand musical concepts such as key signatures, chords, scales, and rhythms which allow students to sight read more easily.*

Music theory may seem daunting at first but hopefully this site will help demystify it for you! Check back often for new content as I hope to make this site helpful for both parents and their budding musicians!

There have been a lot of studies done on the subject of introducing music lessons to children. One study, which was done by Northwestern University, has shown that children who participate in music lessons at a young age can actually increase their intelligence.

Another great reason to get your child started on music lessons is that you can actually get them interested in other subjects. This is because a lot of times when kids learn to play an instrument they also learn how to read and write sheet music, which is basically a language all on its own. This will help your child in their academics in the future.

Trying this for yourself, or with your child, is great way to bond with them and it will be something that you can do together for years to come. And the best part is, they won’t even realize they are learning!

If you want to see an example of how music theory can be used in a practical sense, think about the times when you have listened to a song and thought, “Wow, I wish I could play that”. You may have even tried playing the song by ear. If you are like most people who attempt this, it is frustrating.

What you should do is learn music theory. Learning music theory will allow you to understand how the song was played. This understanding will enable you to play the song on your instrument.

Music theory is really not that difficult to learn. There are many resources available such as books, websites, and apps that can teach music theory concepts to beginners.**

There is a great deal of information available on the subject of music theory, but some good starting points are books like the “Teach Yourself To Play Piano” series or the “Everything You Need To Know About Music” book.
