What is your new year resolution? Start learning music theory in 2023

Christmas and New Year's Eve took up all your time. You didn't play your instrument enough or even think about it. You didn't practice your music theory. Keep calm, because there's enough time to make things right in 2023. Make a great musical start and begin to learn more about music theory.

We will provide you with five tips to start en continue learning music theory in a fun and interesting manner.

Combine theory with practice

Music theory might seem boring. You have to read a lot and understand complex rules. When you combine music theory with practice, everything becomes more fun! Get your instrument ready and play the intervals and scales. Use your voice to sing, and you'll learn ear training at the same time.

Take your keyboard and learn

Maybe you play saxophone or drums, but if you have a keyboard, you have a great advantage. Use it to play intervals and scales. The distances between notes are really clear, because you can see and count the white and black keys. This makes it easier to understand the basics of music theory.

Once you get a bit further, you can take your own instrument and practice everything.

Listen to your favorite music

Music theory is the foundation of all music. Listen to different types of music and try to recognize patterns. You can also listen to your favorite songs. Once you make more progress in music theory, you'll recognize scales and intervals. When you're at it, give Sonids Spotify Playlists a go!

Learn together

It's never easy to learn something completely new. Tell others about your New Year's resolution. Tell your music teacher, your parents, the musicians from your orchestra, and you'll see that they're also interested. You don't have to learn by yourself, learn together!

Use every learning material

In this digital time, there are many opportunities to learn music theory. Use the internet, search on YouTube and practice in mobile applications. Watch our music theory tutorials or read a book about the basics of music theory. Combining visual, textual and interactive learning materials is the best way to learn. You will make faster progress and have more fun.

Of course you can choose any goal you want, as long as you keep it simple.

Set a daily reminder to practice your music theory. This is way better than learning a lot at once. Tell others about your goals, talk with other musicians about music theory, and make learning fun.
