There has never been a music book like this. Hooktheory I is a smart, fun, skill-building journey that concretely teaches you how to craft melodies and chord progressions like professional musicians and gain a deep understanding and intuition for how music works. Validated by 16,435 musicians like you, Hooktheory I is the best selling how-to music book for instrumentalists, songwriters, producers, and DJs around the world for a reason.
This exploration of melody and chord creation is fun to read, easy to understand, and full of practical knowledge. It contains 41 interactive exercises and 94 audiovisual examples from artists like: Avicii, Beyonce, Journey, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, and The Beatles, that make it easy to see the tactics these successful artists use.
Reading Hooktheory I doesn’t require any previous music knowledge or the ability to read music. On average, it takes about five hours to read (but more to fully absorb) so it isn't a huge time commitment. Dedicate only a few hours to reading this book and gain a lifetime of skills that will give your music that professional edge.
We wrote this book because we were tired of all of the “songwriting” websites and books that talk vaguely of “finding your inspiration” rather than providing concrete tools to improve your music.
With Hooktheory I, we have created an approachable, intuitive resource that directly answers the hard questions: Why do certain chords fit together easily, and others not so easily? How can I get from this chord to that chord? How can I create a great melody? Hooktheory I is a book that will make you say “ah ha!” many times over.

Mind is exploding with the amount of aha moments
This is so well written. I am loving this journey to understand music. It's answering questions I've felt in music but didn't have the vocabulary to ask. Amazing job. Btw, SIT WITH A PIANO/KEYBOARD WHEN READING THIS. It's a 1000x better if you are sitting with some kind of a keyboard/piano while reading so that you can try things as you are reading. Ok back to the book.
