Future of Music Education
Popular music (electronic, hip-hop, indie, metal, etc.) is super cool, but most of it is also super predictable! This is because the current music education system focuses on classical/jazz. Those genres are irrelevant for most modern songwriters and producers though, and as a result, they don't study music and choose to compose by ear instead.
However, making music by ear is precisely what's causing all the predictable songs these days, as our ears will always lead us to what we've heard before. So, if we want to make great music that stands out, we need to use theory! But, traditional theory is irrelevant and overcomplicated. This is the dilemma that popular music is currently trapped in.
Our solution is Hack Music Theory, an online platform for songwriters and producers to learn relevant, simple theory hacks, which can instantly be applied to making cool music that's also creative and clever! So, get involved now by downloading our free book, and join over 130,000 like-minded music makers in the Hack Music Theory community.
