Hey guys, according to the AF-Music Theory website, longterm studies have been performed to show the effects of learning music theory. While those taught nothing struggled mightily, those who learned only the basics, not even modes, did better on their instruments than those taught through college-level theory.

Additionally, those taught advanced theory suffered from many health issues, including: sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes (are we talking about music or a cat?), dizziness, and increased frequency of our "special time of the month." Some even developed serious conditions such as kuru, syphilis, and AIDS.


Here's the link. I don't know if this kind of experiment means anything to anyone else, but I've sure given up on all but the basics!

APRIL FOOLS!

This is stupid. Correlations are NOT science. College level music theory students get AIDS and syphilis because they are in college having random sex, not because they study music theory.

No one has ever failed as hard as you just did.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

I do agree you can get so caught up with learning theory it starts to limit your creativity instead of expand it

I totally agree. Once I started learning theory my creativity was stifled and I got AIDS.
