Learn music theory
Waay teaches music theory for songwriting—the stuff you can take to your instrument and use. Interactive exercises, video lessons, and tools to track your progress.
Interactive exercises
Learning is about practice, but practice needs to be fresh and exciting. Waay generates dynamic music theory exercises that are new every time.

Video lessons
Video lessons are geared towards songwriting, guiding you through notes, intervals, chords, progressions, and more. Each music theory lesson is just a few minutes long, letting you get back to the exercises fast.
