Theory is great to know. I've been tkaing instrumental and vocal class for 3 years now. Half of the class is theory and the other hafl ids playing. Knowing theory makes you fele more accomplished as a player and well you pretty much can pwn most of your friends at guitar knowledge and playing. Very helpful courses.

At least your school has a music theory class...I'd try it out if I was you.

The high school that I went to started a guitar class 2nd semester of my Senior year, but I couldn't take it because I didn't have an acoustic

As matter of fact, I don't even think our colleges have music theory/guitar classes...

Haha, this post went from totally against it to all for it in 5 lines. Awesome.

Learning theory can be quite boring. I took it in college and a lot of people hated it. I thoroughly enjoyed it because I could see how it would make a difference for me as a musician. It's more like learning a language than learning music because it's all reading and writing (as opposed to making noise) but if when you leave the class you take the time to understand how it actually applies to the instrument then it's completely worth it. I'd say take it only if you're interested in being a better musician.

dude i just joined year 11 music last week (year 12 being the final year here in australia) im way behind everyone else and im struggling a bit but im learning SOOOO much!
i tried learning out of a book and its alot harder. music class is beter because it helps you with your listening and performing skills.
DO IT! (unless its your final year of high school, then dont risk it incase you fail)

DO IT! it's just another system waiting to be explored. plus it's absolutely necessary once you reach a certain point.. if you're not learning new things about theory every day then you're stagnating your guitar skill development, so go learn!

music theory is like learning math but more interesting. he's right that its neverending but once you know the stuff you are definately a better musician. im taking it this year
