You practice. You have desire. But, your playing is not where you'd like it to be. You feel like other people know something you don't. What do they know that you don't? It's simple. If you are not thinking of music the right way, you will find yourself stuck, not improving like you should. The fact is, you need to understand the musical patterns before you can bend, shape, and express them.
The height of mastery for the musical artist happens when you can create melody and harmony as fast as you can think it. This is true musical freedom and anyone with desire can achieve it.
I created a tool to help you experience that kind of freedom in your playing. It's the Music Theory Illustrated App. It shows music in a way that will allow you to be the creative musician you want to be. It shows scales, chords, intervals, modes, and chord progressions on your iPhone and IPad.
In the beginning, I had no great talent for music. I took lessons and read books. Nothing seemed to work. I even quit a few times. It wasn't until I drew up some diagrams to help me understand the rules for playing jazz that music began to make sense to me. These diagrams I made enabled me to see how chords, scales, and notes all related. It made the complex very simple and easy to understand. Quickly my playing improved and finally I could improvise and jam with others. The same diagrams I drew up years ago have been included in this app.
The Music Theory Illustraded App is perfect for the musician who wants to improve their playing ability. It shows many of the basics, like which chords make up which keys. But that's only the beginning. Like a calculator that can do both simple addition or trig functions. This app offers a wide range of musical information that beginners and advanced musicians can appreciate. The app is the most comprehensive reference tool you'll ever own. It is like a Swiss Army knife for music.
f you don't read music, don't worry. You don't need to read music to understand it and play it. This app works for all skill levels, all instruments. It is especially good for piano and guitar.
No matter how well you play, you need to be able to communicate musical ideas to other musicians. If you don't know the language, you won't know what other musicians are saying to you...and that's not good if you want to play in a band. The Music Theory Illustrated App explains the most important terms and concepts musicians use today.

There are plenty of expensive books, DVDs, and online study courses that tell you about music but this app is a TOOL that really SHOWS HOW music works. Dollar for dollar and note for note this app is your best bet. Every note, chord, and scale follows a natural pattern. When you learn that pattern, you can improve your playing without spending a lot of money.
The Music Theory Illustrated App is designed to give you the information you need to be a better imporvisor and composer but it is also valuable for musicians interested in improving their understanding of music theory. This thing called "music theory" is simply the study of the relationships between notes. That's it. Some people try to make it into more than that, but that's all it is. Professional musicians know this (even if they don't admit it) and use it to their creative advantage.
Music theory is not a set of rules. It is the living, breathing anatomy of music. Whether you're into jazz, pop, country, metal, or the classics, knowing music theory will give your playing a creative edge.
Playing music as easily as speaking has always been a goal of mine. I have no special musical talent but have made up for that by leaning some music theory. The diagrams in the Music Theory Illustrated App are the same ones that I made when I first started playing. -Tom Michero
