    • Music Interviews

When teachers say they "teach music," they most often mean that the introduce people to a specific instrument and instruct them on how to play it. But sometimes the underlying structure of the music we're playing goes overlooked. When do students learn to understand what the composer was actually doing when putting certain groups of notes together? When do students learn to appreciate the mathematical structures behind certain chord progressions or modulations? Is it necessary or even important to students to understand these things? The Ultimate Music Theory course creator Glory St. Germain answers these questions.
