    Music theory is a term for how music itself works . There is a type of music theory man made and self indulgent terminology divorced from pragmatism , however all of my content is aimed at presenting music how it exists as .
    We have to use words as descriptions and shortcuts to describe what is happening how something works.
    I will present the inner workings of music which will show every possibility in any given context.
    The point behind understanding music , is that you have a way to do anything you want to.
    Create the exact way you feel inside.
    Express what you must .
    Make something out of knowledge not mystery.
    It's only when you can see every possibility in a context , that you can choose the exact one which suits you.
    However if you do something by accident but happens to work well in music , who gets the credit?
    If you play an amazing melody which each note sounds perfect yet you did it all accidentally what exactly are you expressing!
    Think about our spoken language.
    Imagine a person speaking the most elegant sentence you ever heard , however they gave no clue what any of the words mean, they have no clue about arranging the words in the way and the impact it has they have no connection to the
    Very things that make that sentence valuble at all. They have no internal connection to the meaning the very thing that makes that sentence non giberish.
    Now compare all this to a person saying the sentence where each word was selected for what it meant. Where the order of the words was carefully articulated , where their internal mind and feelings match the meaning of the sentence and the entire sentence was made on purpose each word spoken with a connection to each aspect of what it is that gives meaning .

    Music theory teaches you why a specific musical aspect effects the listener exactly how it does.
    Music theory teaches how you can create any desired outcome that music will impact the listener
    It shows you every possible way that 88 notes can interact and what is happening and why ,such that you the creator of music can make music the exact way you intend to.

    Did you ever thought about creating PDF's for your stuff? Because I think such things are naturally pretty bad structured in a forum.

    I don't know what you mean about bad structured in a forum , sure there are aspects that are not ideal in any situation . My intent is to present information that people can access. They are free to make PDFs out of it if they desire to. I believe a better way than to make PDFs is to just access it on here anytime they want .take a portion of it put it into action start using it and memorizing it.
    The point of musical knowledge is to have it running in your brain while using it in the world .
    There might be cases where people want to make it alternate mediums . That's fine just copy the text and paste into a PDF . That'll be way quicker and faster task than taking it and using it And memorizing it . I belive the strength of it being here is that it's always accessable by searching for my name as we go into the future

    I mean you could simply add an PDF about what you write here in one of your posts. I have no problem with this but I doubt that anyone is reading everything under the circumstances here. Because you must know that your threads are overwhelmed with comments which have nothing to do with what you write (this is another one and no one can blame those people). Thats what I mean with "bad structure" and I do not think that this is helpful for concentrated reading if after every post another post is saying "ohh thats interesting and cool" or "you just have no clue what you're talking about". This is not helpful in any educational way. There are threads you've created which have 22 sites going on and 1/8 is from you. Would you read everything? :no:

    I think I know where your coming from now .thank you for your participation.
    I have been working on a research phase for the last 8 months into film making. ( A new area for me
    With the goal of eventually creating a YouTube channel which features this content with high quality motion picture content artistic but education visuals and demonstrations of the material .
    It has been a lot to take in with no funding however I do have a sit down with a potential investor (?)
    To attempt to get a warehouse location to use for a video studio and film making equipment .
    Since I began it 8 months ago everything has been going on time ( pretty slow though 1 person)
    I'm trying to contemplate monetization to do it
    ( I'm poor person).
    But even if it takes a long time I am going to do everything I can to create a new type of music education mixed with art also with demonstration of using techniques while having everything professional enough.
    I hope this gives you an idea what I been working towards in the shadows with this material.
    Thank you for your interest and ideas.

    The whole idea of music Bites ,is to give the most condensed pure information possible with the least amount to read. ( People get overwhelmed by a 7000 page book etc)
    Although you can also check out my other long threads that go through a long form version right in education.

    You see music theory ( in other words how music works )
    Is really just one indispensable puzzle peices out of many. It has to be combined with every other area of music knowledge to create songs that are the best representation of yourself.
    Other areas of important knowledge come in when you go to use music theory as the basic foundation.
    Using instruments physically and conceptually
    Composing
    Arranging
    Preproduction
    Production
    Mixing
    Engineering
    Mastering

    It's a rough idea but when all the parts come together, that is when you can fully represent yourself with " music" or songs finished to play for people.
