When it comes to learning Music Theory the question by many self taught musicians is whether or not the study is relevant in today’s entertainment industry? Often it’s true that to get anywhere in life it’s not what you know, but who you know, however even for those who are well connected, eventually you must come clean and show what you’ve got. The entertainment industry is full of wannabes. And with more talent based reality shows popping up on our screens, it all looks too easy to shine like a star.
The truth is that true stars are made of star material. Stars are achievement driven. They are self disciplined. Stars adapt and overcome. In other words, they are problem solvers. And they are influential as leaders in their field. Studying Music Theory, with an application like Music Theory and Practice develops star qualities in all musicians.
The development team at Musicopoulos believe that if you want to be successful in the music business or entertainment industry as a whole, you must know what you are talking about. You must be the “real deal”. Music Theory and Practice by Musicopoulos is a fully structured course for learning Music Theory and putting it all into Practice, using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
