The students are not solely taught the theory, which is important, but more important than simply learning the theory is the practical application of why we are learning these scales and chords and what we can do with them once we have learned them. It is the hands on approach to teaching music theory. In addition, Jerald explains the theory in practical and simple terms so that everyone can easily understand and know music theory for what it can do to help them in three primary ways:
(1) Sight read the piano music better and faster as a result of knowing the scales and chords,
(2) Take their music playing and music creating to the next level so they can improvise, arrange, and compose music of their own, and
(3) Ultimately feel comfortable and excited to learn music theory – the FUN WAY!
