Music theory is the basic foundation for every good composer and songwriter. There's a lot to learn and a lot that can be used in your own music. Even if you only want to play guitar and not write music, music theory can help you be a better improvisor, increase your harmonic knowledge, and play better in group settings.

I have been teaching Theory as part of the lessons for over 23 years. Theory is the analysis of what is behind the music. I always include Theory in the lessons to help the students understand their music.
