By the end, you’ll definitely see and understand music theory like never before….

Songwriting is fun when you can actually see what you’re doing. I use the familiar patterns of color to explain music theory so you can write songs.

What a Trip! Thank you 🙂

Homesh Rawat says:

hey Mike, loved the way you have made music theory so visually easy. Would love to see some videos on time signatures and rhythm.

Miguel Mendez says:

This is cool! In leaning this system would you memorize the colors associated to each note? Been learning music theory my whole life and it has never clicked, this definitely made some new connections. Cheers!

Karl Gilbert says:

good stuff 🙂

Suncat says:

Very nice thank you for this. I was familiar with most of what you talked about and i had noticed the two halves of the scale before but i never paid attention to the whole step in the middle or what the two halves meant. Your explanation about the second half of a scale leading into another scale, how it follows the circle of fifths, and the 180 degree rotation of the notes reeally was like magic. Pretty sure youre a magician! Thanks again!

Hey Mike this is really well done! Going to show this to a couple of my private lesson students!
