Think of ''theory'' in any other context.
In english, you practice theory by learning grammar, spelling, etc
In math, you practice theory by learning new... well... theories: calculus, algebra, adding, whatever
In music, you practice theory by learning the idea of intervals, scales, harmony, etc.

Music theory is a way of describing music and why it sounds the way it does.

Quote by MudMartin
Only looking at music as math and theory, is like only looking at the love of your life as flesh and bone.

Swinging to the rhythm of the New World Order,
Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
Music Theory lets you give names and explinations to the things you do musically.
