Hooktheory I The 2nd Edition of Hooktheory I is now available on iBooks (released March 2017). We recommend purchasing the 2nd edition rather than this 1st Edition.

Ever wonder how to write a song like the ones you listen to everyday? "Hooktheory I" is an interactive guide through the rules and structure behind chord progressions, melody, and their relationship to one another, to help musicians understand the how and why behind great music.


  • The first time music theory has made sense to me.

    By faisalchaudryuk
    I’ve struggled with music theory for many years. I’d normally just compose by ear with shapes I had memorised but it was extremlely limiting as I’d know in my head what I wanted but just didnt know how to figure it out without stumbling around notes for ages, and mostly never finding it. This book is the first time it’s become crystal clear. I do wish it was a bit longer, but thats just because I’m now hungry to consume more theory in this format. Make no mistake it’s worth the price of admission!
  • Awesome read

    A simple to follow intro to the very basics, which turns out to be driving many of the recent songs you could hear on the radio. The embedded multimedia makes it very enjoyable and easy to understand the concepts. I’m very interested in Hooktheory II.
  • Very useful...

    A great little guide that covers quite a lot of ground and uses the multimedia capabilities of iBooks to excellent effect. Hopefully vol 2 will follow soon
  • I'm songwriting!

    Suddenly "the penny drops" as I read through the pages of this wonderfully simple to read music theory book. The language is refreshingly easy to understand and the flow of the text and interactive exercises, helps explain some of the difficult concepts with rapid pace without becoming bamboozled in the process. Well worth the price I paid. However, this appears to be a first volume in an incomplete series of books. I do hope the writers continue to release an "advanced" volume to follow on. There is enough information contained here though to spark those creative juices. Well done guys, can't wait for the next book. Love the website too!
