Music is like a language of its own, just the language you speak, or like math and other concepts. It is made of many different elements, and follows rules and guidelines to create great works of art. All these elements can be separated into their own themes, and all these themes are related to each other in a conceptual chain. To master music, you first need to understand the method and formulas for each theme, and then build your intuition through exercises and contests. Through these contests in speed and accuracy, you will greatly improve your sight-reading, proficiency, and ability to play an instrument, as well as building your motor skills and finger fitness on the keyboard.
