Private Music Theory Teacher

I started learning Music Theory in college. I realized I was very good at it and passed all of my theory classes with ease. Something about it just made sense. I want to help other people understand theory as well as I do because I feel that theory is the best way to grow as a musician. It makes communicating to others musicians much easier since it is, in essence, a language of it's own.

About Anthony

I have played percussion for 17 years, gained a degree in Music Performance, and have extensive experience on stage performing with the Golden Gate Brass Band, Mill Valley Philharmonic, and even my local garage band, The Sonic Steps. Additionally I have taught percussion off and on for 13 years (wo

Peter has a great rapport with our daughter and is "meeting" her where she is in her interests. She loves Lord of the Rings--they've started on music from Lord of the Rings!

Great instructor. Friendly, easy to understand, talented and can teach piano, theory, composition, etc.
Susan
My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.

I only sang in HS choir/ musical theater shows but in the quarantine I wanted to come back to it. Jaime was recommended to me by a friend and it was great to have someone who understood that I wanted to better my singing as a hobby. Singing in the quarantine has gotten me through it and Jaime has been so helpful in getting me to sing in a healthier way. Thank you Jaime!

Online Music Theory Teacher

Music is a universal language with many complex parts. Knowing how to read music is an important skill as well as knowing chords and how music is put together properly. If you want to learn to read basic music, write music or you are already a pro, it is important to have ear training and musical knowledge to really get your message across.

I graduated from Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA with a BA in Music Education, voice principal. During my years in public schools I taught a variety of age ranges and subjects including kindergarten general music, beginning band, high school chorus, and remedial middle sch

Larry came well prepared and was very informative. I’ve never played the guitar before so Larry had to start from ground zero. At the end of the lesson I felt I had learned not just about playing the guitar but music in general. It was a great start!
Austin
very informative and mellow....starting with basics and slowly getting to know the speed I need to grasp it! Happy to have Larry in our home, can't wait for next lesson.

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …
