What are you talking about? Music theory is the “study of the practices and possibilities of music.” “Music theory is frequently concerned with describing how musicians and composers make music.”

As part of music theory, you study the practices of various composers like Beethoven. As part of this study you prescriptively write in the style of Beethoven etc.
