A unique method of learning and memorizing music theory and training your ear while you drive.
Want to understand music theory inside and out? Want to know the notes in each scale and key off the top of your head? Now you can, and almost effortlessly!
Take the mystery out of music theory! These audio lessons explain music theory simply and thoroughly. The audio examples are musically illustrated on keyboard and guitar. No prior knowledge of music theory is needed. The material covered in this course is general music theory for all instruments, vocals and songwriting. It is equivalent to three semesters of college music theory. It has helped many college students challenge out and pass their college classes. Also includes ear training.
Knowing music theory makes learning any instrument easier, enables the band
to communicate more effectively and is also helpful for songwriting.
Beginners welcome, no previous theory necessary.

Here's what our students say..... "Man I owe you a real debt of gratitude. I've been trying to learn theory for years and never could quite grasp it. I have the "Theory for Dummies" book and the new "Complete Guitarist" book and I never could grasp an understanding of it. I recently purchased your "Theory for the Road" CD set and BAM! The process in which you explain it is simply genius. I was really happy to stumble onto your web page. I spend a lot of time driving ...no less than 700 miles per week. With the price I am paying in gas for that time I may as well make that time constructive right?" Ralph Robert Jr
"I just wanted to let you know I completed the theory for the road CD set, what a great item! I finally learned my scales and key signatures after all these years of knowing I should and just not knowing how to really go about it. I think the exercises and explanations were really terrific -this was more valuable to me than a music theory course I took in college many years ago. Its a great tool to understand chords and progressions as well." Thanks, Joanna Shaw
