The good thing about music is that it's a lifelong journey. There's always something to study, to learn about, to listen to. There's so much music out there.

Kris Adams, professor in harmony and jazz composition, Berklee College of Music


Learning music is like learning a language; to master it, you must practice regularly and understand the rules that govern it.

Music theory isn't a rule book that shows the 'correct' way to make music. Instead, it shows how music works.

George Russell is a professor of harmony and piano at Berklee College of Music.

Through the piano, Russell has studied classical, gospel, and jazz: different ways of approaching music which all have the fundamentals of music theory at their heart.

You might think that you don't need music theory to make music, but knowing music theory is key to understanding the vocabulary of creating music, making it much easier to create something authentic and original.
