I'd be interested in any advice about studying theory along side playing. I have been playing for 3 years and, at my teachers advice, recently started studying music theory and am currently about grade 2 level.
My ambition in music is to play as well as I can for family/friends and hopefully some chamber music for fun. Do others think studying theory is appropriate for me or should I focus on the playing? I have to say I'm not really enjoying it but my teacher seems keen!
