that happens... I guess some people don't like looking under the hood... 
or it gets too hard for them at that point... it can be a lot to wrap your 
head around if you get it all at once. Or maybe some people don't like 
that music can be a science AND an art form at the same time. I love all 
of it... the more theory the better if you ask me.

I was lucky enough to have a teacher who taught me all kinds of theory and 
advanced ear training at a very young age, so it wasn't hard in college, 
just more fascinating.
