Best way to learn music theory?

Whether learning on your own or with additional help, you can start learning music theory with sessions on beginning harmony and music appreciation. Then you may move on to reading about intervals, scales, modes, and diatonic structures. Moving ahead, different types of chords will be taught- major, minor, augmented and diminished. While reading about it, make sure you personalize each topic according to your own style. Only when you practice the theory while you learn, you completely understand the concept. As you are learning this, train your ears to understand these nuances when you hear them. Reading books and online notes can definitely get you to learn music theory the way you like. But as history shows, it's a time-consuming path. This is where a teacher can help you fasten the learning process. There will come occasions when you'll be spending a considerable amount of time looking for answers. This is when you should ideally start learning from a music teacher.
