This is the music theory / songwriting book youll love. Hooktheory is an intuitive, modern take on music theory that answers the questions you care the most about: Why do certain chords fit together easily, and others not so easily? How can I get from this chord to that chord? How can I create a great sounding melody?

The concepts we teach are applicable to all types of music, but examples are drawn from popular songs youve probably heard on the radio. Also, because the explanations are drawn from our TheoryTab format, people that dont read conventional sheet music will benefit from the concepts we cover just as much as those that do.

What people are saying:

Outstanding! A great explanation of music theory, and the relationship between melody and chord progressions. Having the video/audio examples built-in makes this book really stand apart from others I have read. I wish all music books were made this way! - Jeffrey Hall

Worthy of multiple re-reads. Hooktheory I was a great book. I have been looking for a resource that made writing music comprehensible. This is that resource. The graphs and explanations were clear and easy to follow. The various examples from popular songs helped a great deal. - Jeremiah Spassion

Absolutely loved your first book. I learned so, so much. Currently going through it a second time. Cant wait for the next one! - @rogerclark

The book is 6 chapters long with 41 exercises and 94 audiovisual examples from artists like: Aerosmith, Avicii, Beyonce, Bon Jovi, Bruno Mars, Celine Dion, Daughtry, Diana Ross, Green Day, John Mayer, Journey, Kelly Clarkson, Kenny Chesney, Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Matchbox 20, Pink, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, The Beatles, The Four Seasons, The Killers, Tom Petty, and more.
