Welcome to free printable music theory worksheets for music students. Music theory is the study of the language and notation of music.  It is important for music students to study music theory because it identifies the composer's techniques in structure, rhythm, harmony, texture, and many other elements of music.  It allows one to become a more well-rounded and comprehensive musician. 

Over time, we hope to add worksheets that teach music concepts, music speed tests, and homework assignments for music students.  These worksheets can be used in private music lessons, classrooms, group lessons, or for self-learners.  The handouts can also be used to reiterate music theory concepts learned during lessons, assigned as homework, or serve as practice tests when preparing for state music exams.
