Malia's music theory coaching helped me connect music theory to the practice of songwriting. By learning how to break down my ideas into components and recombine them into complete songs, I completed and released my first solo album earlier this year. Thanks, Malia, for your help in getting to the other side!
Michelle Medina-Ferrone, Freelance Violinist
Malia made theory and music accessible! I hadn't been in a theory class in years, and when I was, I could never grasp the concepts or the why. Malia's class was refreshing, fun, and useful. The knowledge I gained makes me want to incorporate it in any style of music that I play. The materials incorporated were things I wish were available when I studied music. Now I use them for fun to expand my musicality!

Testimonials - "visualize keyboard scales & modes"
Dr. Craig Cunningham
I have this book and I love this book!!! Love the introduction material. I love the way the book is organized. I use this book with my own students frequently...I further love that all scales and modes are from one starting point.
I love the layout of this book...For someone like me that is just learning or has been confused by all the different mode names, this book lays them out in an easy to understand fashion. It also provides the musical notation so that you can play and hear the difference to reinforce learning the scales and modes. And it doesn't just give you two or three keys as examples, the author lays out everything for all 30 major/minor keys! I highly recommend this book if you're looking to learn or become more confident with your music fundamentals.
Enjoying this book so far. I love the way things are laid out and explained. This will be very useful for sure.

Music Theory is an Art Form
The study of voice leading works many "muscles" in the musical mind: (1) how to read/write/navigate the melodic and harmonic dimensions of music at the same time (melody and harmony); (2) how to strategically use dissonance and consonance (tension and release); (3) related to #1 - how to work in layers, with many voices, and eventually, instruments, at once.
A strong background in voice leading skills will lead to more advanced skills, such as; arranging, orchestration, ensemble composition, reading and performing dense-texture scores, and working in a DAW.
