Has anybody come across this site? Excellent, concise music theory reference posted by The Sibelius Academy, in Helsinki, Finland (no affiliation....not sure I've ever been within 1000 miles of there). I'm posting as an fyi; hope it can help someone.

Glad you like it, NobleHouse! I'd love to take a real course in theory one day but this will do for now.

Yes and I added another that I found here recently... can't recall who alerted me to it but it's fantastic. Open Music Theory. I'm reading about key modulation.

I'm actually going through the Open Music Theory site page by page...even in the most basic pages, there are things to be learned. I highly recommend this review for anyone interested.

I found this syllabus from an AP music theory course to be detailed and follow a good, logical curriculum. I hope you find it helpful!

Some great references! I had found this music theory software on Amazon, which I bought and installed it on my computer, but I can't give a review yet since I've been spending my free time with Piano Marvel lessons and actually haven't started using it.
