We have always believed that knowledge grows when shared. For decades, we’ve been writing articles about music on many platforms such as local magazines, blogs, and websites. At one point, we believed that we needed to publish our articles as books. So, we could reach more and more people. As a result, we started writing our first ebook about music theory.
In October 2018, we published our first ebook about music theory on Apple Books. We called it An Insight Into Music Theory. The positive feedback we got from our readers encouraged us to write more. In April 2019, we started writing our second ebook about the history of music.
Here on this page, you will be able to view our books and ebooks as we publish them on different platforms. You may read their descriptions, and find their buy links. In the future, we plan to establish our book store here. So, keep in touch!
