Lesson 1: Introduction

Pop Music Theory is a free online music theory, songwriting, and music production course, covering:

  2. Analysis: Studying why good music sounds good, to help you learn how to write music.

Why Pop Music Theory?
  • Real pop music: These lessons are about real, "popular" music (including rock, blues, R&B, country, jazz, etc.).
  • We start at the beginning and explain things one step at a time.
  • Explanations and activities: These are lessons, not just "theory facts". We explain things, include music theory games, and give you tips to use the theory to create your own music.
