About Hello Music Theory

Hello Music Theory was started back in 2014 by Dan Farrant. Dan is a music teacher and musician who studyied music at the The Royal Academy of Music in London and wanted to find an outlet to share all the worksheets and teaching materials he was making for his students.

Most of the learn music theory online websites were either really hard to use, very dated or contained wrong information so this was another incentive to start this site.

Our goal is to be the goto place on the internet to learn music theory. We want to help teachers by providing awesome teaching materials and also to provide easy to understand teaching instructions for those who are learning by themselves.

A Hello From Dan

I’ve been a musician for over 20 years. I studied the double bass at the Royal Academy of Music between 2008 and 2012. I’ve been teaching music for the last 10 years both privately and as a peripatetic teacher at Enfield Grammar School, Dame Alice Owen’s and Westminster School.

Sadly though, I injured my back towards the end of my degree and so had to slow down with the amount of playing that I was doing. I became a magician (google me) but wanted to still be involved with music without causing myself any more injuries.

I now live in Godalming, Surrey where I run this website as well as a podcast about jazz.


How To Support Hello Music Theory

We hate adverts on a website and so don’t want to have any on this site. That does mean that we have to charge for some of the things we make. If you’ve enjoyed using the our free worksheets and would like to support us in this project then you can do so in a few different ways.

Firstly you can purchase some of our practice papers or worksheets. It helps us keep all the cogs turning.

Secondly, you can share this website with a friend. So far this site has grown pretty much entirely by word of mouth so if you can put a link on your website, share on facebook or tweet on twitter, we’d be really grateful.

Thirdly, you can send us a message saying what you like (or don’t like!) about the site.

Thanks so much for reading and if you have any questions you can email Dan.
