Studying Music & Music Theory – Books

“Do not be afraid of the words: theory, basso continuo, contrapunctal etc.; if you treat them well, they will treat you well in return.”

Take a leaf out of Robert Schumann’s book Advice to Young Musicians and be inspired by the wide world of music theory today!
