My studies include both Classical and Jazz theory, and I love to constantly learn and explore more of how music works and share this with my students.

Gary did a great job of getting me started on my first piano lesson. Learned a lot on my first day...hope I can measure up to my practice plan for the week! Bravo!

Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.

Music theory has been a fascinating and ongoing subject for the major portion of my life, since I was working on my Master's degree and Doctorate degree in composition. I teach music theory with clarity, demystify dark spots, remove any ambiguity and offer my musical life experience to my students.

Nader was fantastic! I took Violin lessons for a few years from a couple different teachers, and he taught me new, interesting things I'd never learned before. He's also very patient and nice.
Carolina V.
He is very patient and has excellent communication skills. I have no knowledge of how to play the violin or music of any kind. After my first lesson I strongly feel he will be my private instructor for many years to come. I left with proper technique of how this instrument is to be cared for and good posture when practicing. He also informed me of the books we will be incorporating into my lessons. Most importantly homework is given and he is very patient and explains everything at your level.
Kira
I was very pleased with my first lesson with Nader. He is very kind and patient. We covered some basic points with what we'll be covering for my lessons with the cello. His instructions and explanations of technique is very clear I feel my lessons with him will be very beneficial and enjoyable.

Private Music Theory Teacher

I've studied music for over 25 years. I specialize in teaching classical music, but also teach pop/Broadway/Sacred styles. I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in Professional Studies: Piano and have been teaching professionally since February 2008 when MuzikAdict Piano Studio was established. I have experience teaching ages 3-84. I include theory in all my lessons and also love to dwell solely on music theory without emphasis on an instrument if that is your preference . Looking forward to meeting you!

We don’t have any grand aspirations for him, but he likes to bang around and we wanted to give him some direction to see if he latched on to it. Our main objective is that he has fun.

"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."

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge.

I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine.
