    Music theory is important, however some of us are ear players and have minimal theory knowledge so we must rely on getting a piece in our ears and head in order to “read” the music properly.
    I am one of those musicians and I’ve tried many times to read and understand music theory, with limited success. In fact I’ve read your book! I understood about 75% of it but some of it just eludes my brain’s way of thinking.
    Having said that, I never give up but I do rely on my ear and memory to play. It limits me sometimes so my advice is learn as much as you’re able to and find a good teacher.
