music theory overwhelming

Are you feeling overwhelmed by how much there is to learn about music and music theory? Do you find yourself thinking that theory restricts what you can do and it's a bunch of information that you won't use? Or maybe you think that you are not good enough/smart enough to understand everything there is to understand?

I do understand how you feel because I've been in the same situation many times - and yes, it's not a pleasant feeling. What I found out is that there are a few things that we need to keep in mind when we study theory, a few of those being:

  • You probably know enough to write songs already (watch the video to see how)
  • You do not need to know everything right now
  • The more you study theory the better musician you become and the more your creativity expands

If you want to know more about this an how to make music theory work for you and your music rather than being an obstacle to your musicianship, then watch this video:
