Theory and Ear Training
Music Fundamentals is a site which will prove helpful to those struggling with basic theory. I cannot recommend this site highly enough. It has everything to help someone trying to learn theory, including rhythmic dictation, interval exercises, clear explanations of Augmented Sixths, Neopolitan chords, and secondary dominants...and so much more! Even if you're good at theory, it's a fun site to check out!
