  • Wonderful podcast

    I lost my way for a couple decades but I am back to regular practice and playing. I had some gaps in my music theory and not only has this podcast filled them, but I am connecting my theory and practice better than ever. I have listened to several episodes multiple times as I work my way through the RCM theory syllabus. Thank you Matt and Jeremy. I only wish you were podcasting when I was a young piano student (pre-Internet, alas!) Your southern accents only add to the charm of music student 10... more

  • Hot Diggity Dog!

    Matt and Jeremy are the Lennon/McCartney of podcasts. They match to each other’s strengths perfectly and I can listen to them over and over and never tire of them. This is a true labor of love and you can tell there is a lot of work going on. There is so much to learn from these two that, like music, you will never want to hear the end. Fortunately, there is a very deep backlog of their podcasts so you will be able to take those long trips and feel enlightened and slightly smarter when you fin... more

  • Fantastic

    As someone who has found the piano later in life (late 30’s) I’ve found this podcast a fantastic resource in between lessons. Your discussions has sparked in depth discussions with me and my teacher. I enjoy the banter as well. It feels more human and natural rather than other podcasts that can come off dry as week old oatmeal lol. I’ve been taking lessons for 5 years now and I always look forward to the next topic. The episode with the counterpoint specifically on Fux’s book really spoke to me ... more

  • Glad I started listening to this show

    A few years ago I started playing piano self-taught. I’m now a dad of 2 with that works more than 40 hrs/week so being able to learn music theory on my drive to work has been very convenient. Last year I took a basic online theory course but still found myself looking at some chords from some pieces and thinking “what the hell kind of chord is that?” but thanks to the episode on non-chord tones and Matt’s advice to not just slap try to slap a label on each chord in isolation, but to look at its ... more

  • Very helpful podcast

    Very educational. I play violin and am self taught in guitar and keyboard, and while a lot of the episodes are beyond my music education level (harmonic progressions? diminished chords? uhh), I listen to them anyway and I guess I’m picking up on it. I have started seeing a difference in my playing as my music theory advances, and I’m glad to have this resource that is helpful and able to challenge me as well.
