One musician resource that I recommend is a theory book called,
 300pg Piano By Ear Home Study Course   

You can keep it by your side like a textbook for quick, easy reference
any time you need it. Just fill in the blanks and charts with a pencil and
go over the material from time to time. Music theory is important to understand
the building blocks of chord progressions, key signatures, circle of fifths and
modulation.
