Music Theory is discussed daily in my studio! Where would we be without it! I introduce principles that are required for any given piece - but recognize that a discussion on Music Theory can take up the whole class - so I am careful to review applicable items as needed. The music binder that all students use are filled though out the months with various Music Theory concepts along with exercises and repertoire. Acquiring Music Theory knowledge is not left to chance and this topic is a big part of my upcoming piano book due out in mid-Spring of next year.

I'll start by saying that music theory is a language that helps you play more effectively with ensembles and writing music of your own. Its very important that u learn your theory to become a great music performer , ear trained player, improvisation and song writer. I will start with the basics of music and we will go on to learn more complex material so you will be on your way to musical freedom.

Some people are afraid of music theory, they think it is a bad word. However, all my instrumental students learn music theory. There is nothing to fear. Music theory is foundational, as important as learning scales and chords. It is necessary to know to play at a high level. In classical music it is an interpretive tool, in jazz it is a tool for improvising. Like note reading, it opens up entire worlds for us to explore. It is FUN! I teach theory, composition, and improvisation to students of all instruments, even instruments I do not play. I love working with violinists, vocalists, even dulcimer players. I am also available to tutor those who are prepping for high school and college. My basic chord function theory course is twelve lessons / assignments. With that information students have the knowledge to progress to analytical and improvisational concepts. With some time and effort, everyone I've taught has learned it happily and easily.

I'll use my academic and practical experience to help you make sense of music theory. I studied music as a performance major in college, and have been a performing musician for over 20 years. I'll help you apply theory to your instrument as well.

Lessons with me are kind of like playing a video game that makes you laugh while you also get really good at writing and understanding music. I can promise that you will see a huge increase in your music theory skills in a very short period of time using my unique approach to learning, and that we'll have a lot of fun along the way. Send me a message! I'd love the opportunity to discuss your musical goals and how I can help you reach them. I teach all levels of music theory from beginner to expert and have LOTS of experience teaching all ages :-D
