Are you here to do assignments for your teacher?
Practice, practice, practice.
Learning music is like learning a new language. You need a good teacher to show you the ropes, but you also need to practice what you're learning — a lot — before it will feel natural and easy. To learn a language you have to use it.
The eMusicTheory drills are more fun than writing in answers on paper, or doing problems in a book. Plus, you know right away if you get one wrong (and sometimes you can get a hint).
What does it cost?
You can also use limited versions of the eMusicTheory drills online for free (no MIDI support, and your options aren't saved): check our free resources.
What if I don't have a teacher?
If you don't have a teacher, there are a lot of good websites where you can learn the basics. It may also help you to get a book to guide you.
Here is a list of links to helpful resources for learning music theory.
You can also visit our discussion forum to talk theory with other students, musicians, and teachers.
