Get creative with your playing
Knowing the theory allows you to find your own way musically, come up with new ideas, new chord progressions, and finish your compositions
Understand what you’re playing
Expand your musical vocabulary and develop your overall ‘feel’ for the music. Better understand your instrument and your own playing style. Music theory can’t replace the ear, but it can definitely fine-tune it.
Communicate with other musicians
Music is a language. Theory will help you to better express yourself and share your ideas with others during the creative process.
Write down and remember your compositions. Quickly sight-read what you hear. Your ears are your biggest asset, but theory will help you be quicker in practice.
Know how to choose your handpans
Know which scales go together and why. Make well-informed choices and create your own combinations.
