Private Music Theory Teacher

I break down music theory concepts into bite sized chunks so that students can understand how composers write what they write. I have even begun my own book on Music Theory due out in the near future. I have taught music theory to schools in Pomona and Diamond Bar. I have synesthesia (seeing colors with notes) which can help people see music theory in a different way. I teach about intervals, scales, circle of fifths, all the way up to analyzing counterpoint, episodes, fugues, preludes, sonata, sonata-rondos, symphonic scores, note spelling, clef reading, musical dictation, sight singing and more! For distances over 5 miles, I'd prefer online clientele.

Chloe is one of the best teachers I have encountered relative to her knowledge, skills, understanding of how to train children and her desire to see her students excel. She is vested in her students. Thank you for the awesome job you do with my kids. I have seen remarkable progress in their singing since you started ( I can say that because I am also a classically trainer singer)

Jan is a wonderful teacher and we recommend him highly to students of any age. My son really likes Jan's teaching method and appreciates that he is so musically current and kind -- high praise from a teenager! Jan is easygoing but is also innovative and thorough in his approach, and it's been a pleasure for the rest of us to get to know him too. I haven't always been successful in the past at getting my son to focus on lessons but Jan has a way of encouraging that progress along. As a result, my son has learned a lot in a short time and really enjoys the piano now.

To whom It may concern,

This is a letter of recommendation for Jan Jurchak as a teacher of piano instruction for young children. He is a man of high technical skill and ability, yet he can still make the basic movements fun and entertaining for kids of all ages. My 8 and 10 year old children took to his kind manner and positive teaching techniques immediately, he was their instructor for two years. Their aptitude for the instrument grew as their desire to perform better for their
teacher amplified with each session. They gladly did their practices on their own, in hopes of excelling and impressing their new mentor every lesson. They were
encouraged to think about the instrument in their own way; to bring in pieces of music that they liked and wanted to learn. In short time, both children began to
read and write music. Long after Jan has left our lives, the girls love of piano has continued to expand and develop; truly the gift that keeps giving. I could not more highly recommend this man as a music instructor for children. You would be lucky to have him!
Sri Utami
To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is to attest to the character and proficiency of our former keyboard instructor Jan Jurchak who instructed our twin, 12 year old girls for 2 years from the ages of 9 through 11. Our girls were able to progress from having no proficiency on the piano up to a middle intermediate level through the instruction of Jan whom we received once weekly 30-45 minute lessons Jan has demonstrated integrity in his work and dedication to teaching our young children and as a result has earned our trust and respect as an outstanding example
We have observed Jan work with others in his initial as an instructor for Spotlight Arts Center in Saugus, California and later as our private instructor. Throughout our working relationship Jan freely assisted us in providing useful feedback to enhance learning between lessons and build confidence in their ability to play the instrument. Jan demonstrated a consistently high level of professionalism and expertise in his craft. As such my wife and I are highly recommending Jan for the position of Music/Keyboard instructor that he is pursuing.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, clarifications or concerns regarding this statement of recommendation.
Sincerely,
Vincent Kondo and Sri Utami

"Shon Morgan is absolutely the greatest most talented musician and music teacher I have ever had the privilege of learning from and playing music with. I am a drummer/guitarist/vocalist. We did some touring gigs together in our earlier years and he was already amazing back then. He sat down and taught me the circle of fifths off the top of his head in one conversation. I learned so much just playing along side him. So not only is he an amazing player, but he is also very well suited and experienced as a teacher. He is the most knowledgeable musically but patient and kind personally. He plays and teaches multiple instruments and vocals really well but he stands out tremendously on bass guitar! You can not go wrong having Shon Morgan as your teacher, period!"

"Albino is an amazing teacher and musician. He has the ability to inspire you musically and make you feel very comfortable while doing it. He has taught me many new approaches, tips, and tricks to music theory. He has helped me to be able to really understand why things are the way they are, and not just figure things out on paper like an equation. Definitely the best tutor I've ever had! I'd highly recommend him."

I've been playing guitar for 10 years now and before I started taking lessons from him, I never knew how much I didn't know. Every lesson is fun and engaging and definitely well worth the rate.

"I play in a rock band that wanted to add some Sinatra type jazz songs to our repertoire. I was tasked to play bass with which I had very little experience. I decided to take some lessons with Gary to learn a little jazz theory and technique. He was a wonderful teacher. He focused in on exactly what I needed quickly and pointed me toward resources that I could use to improve. Despite my limited abilities, Gary was always patient and displayed good humor. When I needed him to write a bass line for me quickly so that I could take it on vacation, he made the time to make sure that I had what I needed. I enjoyed our lessons and recommend him highly. Gary is a teacher who truly cares about his students."

"Hi Everyone,
I’d like to tell all about what a wonderful experience I’m having with Tamari as my piano teacher.
First about me. I’m a 70 year old male with virtually no hands-on music experience or knowledge (other than listening). My parents forced me to take piano music lessons 60+ years ago which I totally resisted. Playing piano was a sissy thing and after a few months they gave up.
For the past 50 years I regretted my youthful error. So when I had the chance to take a piano/keyboard class from Tamari, through OLLI at Uconn I jumped at the chance.
Tamari started the first class totally prepared. Not only did she have startup handouts geared to beginner level students. She also came with extension cords and power outlet strips so all could set up comfortably. Right away we (9) were playing notes and learning. Tamari gave us terrific learning tips (beyond Every Good Boy Does Fine) to make grasping lessons much easier.
Sadly, the Virus hit, and self-isolation became the norm. So Tamari set up her classes through the ZOOM video conferencing software. Wonderfully, a fun learning experience.
One example from yesterday. Tamari helped me learn that just playing the notes , G A G C B by pecking at the keys isn’t music. There’s a certain rhythm needed to make the sound correct and enjoyable. And after, patiently, staying with me, turn after turn, I got it right. Bravo to her and me.
Let me wrap this up by saying, I couldn’t be happier or more satisfied with Tamari as my Piano teacher.
Ralph A Famiglietti."

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 …
