  • New link from Lindsay: Songs to Sing in the Car for Kids
  • Musictheory.net - this may be the most popular music theory website on the internet. Excellent lessons and trainers for learning and drilling basic theory skills.
  • Emusictheory.com - a number of drill programs and interactive sections that offer students an alternate way to explore music theory fundamentals.
  • Practicespot.com - many resources, particularly for piano. Lots of theory worksheets, but no answer sheets.
  • IV-V-I - website where you can learn about and purchase a very fun and instructive game that will help you understand harmonic relationships better and provide everyone a lot of laughs.

  • Music Theory Minute - short video lessons - you might like them!
  • Music at ZZounds - a little confusing because of the many links to other pages, but lots of information.
