Egbert is an enthusiastic music theory teacher and believes that being able to read the music and understand it is necessary for every musician, whether amateur or professional. Quite often students are more interested in playing their instrument than in learning theory. However, it is really rewarding to explore deeper understanding of the music one is performing and to enhance musicianship.
