Sources where to learn the basics

Another thing that I think is very effective in learning synthesis is to have an oscilloscope plug in to see what is happening to your sound as you make adjustments. It gives a clearer picture of things like filtering (Low, band and high pass). Especially when a synth has multiple types of each kind (12db, 24db, etc). But I am a visual learner, so it may not be for everyone.

Yes. The Melda free package has a good oscilloscope.
