Welcome to Basic Music Theory!

Before we begin, I want to get some business out of the way.

In these troubled times, I want to help where I can, and that is why I am making this course available for free right now.  At the same time, I know others want to help where they can as well. So let's all help each other out!

If you already enrolled under one of the various paid plans I have made available, I thank you for your support! But I also encourage you to read on, and help spread the word about what we are doing here.

If you enrolled for free, or have not yet enrolled at all - I want you to rest assured there is no catch here - when I say I am offering this course for free, I mean it. I realize a lot of people are struggling. If you just cannot afford to be spending money on this course, but still want to learn music, I'm here for you. Please, enjoy - free of cost and free of guilt!  I ask only that you too help spread the word. By the way, you can always return to this "Welcome" lesson later.

On the other hand, if you are in a position to help financially, I would love your support!  I am devoting myself full-time to online music education, and I am trying to make the most material available to the most people that I can.  Anything you might choose to pay will be greatly appreciated. People like you can help make music education available for free to those less fortunate. Courses like this one typically sell for $100 or more; the handouts and worksheets themselves are worth the list price I have set. While that isn't necessarily a lot to a middle-class American, it is completely beyond what many people in the world can afford even during the best of times - and these are not the best of times, unfortunately.

So, if anyone reading this would like to help me continue to create and make courses like this available to all, please consider making a voluntary payment in any amount of your choosing. $1, $10, $50, $100 - it's completely up to you.

In return, I pledge to donate a percentage of revenue to charitable organizations that help people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic - particularly musicians, since that hits close to home for many of us.

When you click the "Pay Now" button, you will be redirected to the PayPal site. Enter an amount in the "Price per item" field and complete the transaction. I thank you for your support!

By the way, do be sure you actually enroll as well, if you have not already. Go back to the main page for the course, scroll down to the bottom, and select your pricing plan (regular price or FREE / Pay What You Want) then click the "Enroll in course" button.
