Premiere: Trey’s Theory Corner – Music Theory For You!

Do you ever feel like music theory is too complicated for you, forever out of your reach? Do you think it’s too academic, or that it will spoil your intuitive approach to music and make it not fun anymore? Do you wish you could understand how to recreate the sounds that you hear in music that you love?


If you answered yes to any of the above leading questions, then my new music theory course is for you! Trey’s Theory Corner is the place to get the info you can actually use, to help you understand the music you hear and the music you make. Music theory isn’t just for classical or jazz musicians – anyone can learn it, and it is useful in every musical scenario you can imagine.

Because I love my Gear Mortals so very much, I’m dropping not one, not two, but THREE videos on you today! I wanted to give you a strong intro, but also send you off with and idea or two you could actually use right away. So, the first two are a bit cerebral, but no less important than the third, which is a bit more concrete.

I want to know what topics YOU want to see me cover – leave me comments on the videos and let me know! New episodes will be premiering every two weeks.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
