Informative!

Great podcast. I appreciate that y’all touch more in depth on somewhat obscure topics such as harmony, scales, etc. just one listen and intervals finally clicked!

Outstanding.

Music theory can be very intimidating and confusing. Jeremy and Matt do an excellent job of translating centuries-old concepts into a modern conversational dialogue.

The podcast is great by itself, but I suggest listening in tandem with a book, using the book layout to structure your listening order. I tend to read a chapter in my music theory book, find myself really confused, and then listen to their episode(s) on the topic to clarify what the book couldn't communicate as well as them.

I've listened to most episodes more than once, comprehending more with each subsequent play. Get in the habit of listening to this podcast regularly, and you'll begin to find music theory more fascinating than frightening.

Incredibly helpful and entertaining

Been listening to you guys for a few months now. I started taking piano lessons towards the end of 2017 and have lately been trying to ramp up the progress. Some of the topics are a bit ahead of me in terms of how I can practically apply the theory into my playing, but I feel these podcast give me a good preview of what I have yet to cement into my head. Thanks for the awesome podcast, guys.
