Our studio's youngest student, my son, Sage, who is currently four years old, is hard at work with his Music Theory homework. I'm so proud of his hard work; I'm proud of all of my student's hard work.
There have been times when a student or parent has asked me why I make such an emphasis on studying Music Theory. My answer is simple; music is a living international language that spans over hundreds of years. I don't want any of my students to merely copy and imitate what other composers have written. I want all of my students to understand the language of music and come to a deeper appreciation for the music language.
Happy studying everyone!
