Ms. Shirley has been teaching my two kids (daughter 9 & son 7) for almost 2 years now. She is very dedicated and passionate about music. She challenges my children to try hard and learn good habits. She is flexible in how she approaches both of their lessons given my daughter applies more focus and discipline to her piano than my son. She tries to find ways to keep my son encouraged and interested in learning. She is very accommodating at her home and gives my children space to do their homework. I am very pleased with Ms. Shirley's knowledge, capability and dedication to teaching piano. She is a wonderful teacher.

Ms. Shirley is fantastic. She is very understanding and a combinations. My son LOVES going to his piano lesson every week. She requires he work hard and pay attention. She really works hard to find good things he does and really reinforces the positive. She is always accommodating to schedule changes as well. We love having her as a teacher.
Joyce L.
I have taken lessons with Xiaole for over 5 years now. She helps me to plan long term goals and to strive to play the best I can in performances and competitions. Also, she stresses forming good habits for studying for theory and practicing at home. One thing to note is that she is pretty strict. Overall, I would recommend Xiaole to anyone looking for a productive teacher.

Music theory can be extremely intimidating, but it doesn't have to be! We'll take the time to learn how melodies are constructed, why certain scales sound great over a chord change and other don't, and countless other subjects that will take your musical abilities to a whole new level you didn't think possible.

Music Theory is very important when you are learning any instrument, from knowing what a chord is to actually reading a piece. I've been teaching music for 8 years, I specialize on Early Childhood education, piano, voice, among others! I structure my lessons so students can have fun while also building a strong foundation of music theory and ear training skills. I typically customize my material depending on the students favorite music or needs. I love working with students of all ages, it's never too late to start! Feel free to contact me with any questions. I can't wait to meet you!

Online Music Theory Teacher

In beginner music theory classes, students can expect to learn the fundamentals of note reading, including pitch on treble and bass staves, basic time signatures and rhythm, intervals, chords, major scales and chords. Intermediate classes will involve the circle of fifths and major and minor key signatures, minor, diminished, and augmented chords, inversions, and basic chord progression analysis. In advanced classes, students will learn concepts such as extended harmony chords, secondary chords, more advanced analyses, modes, and special scales. Regardless of a student's level, class material will be geared toward his or her particular needs and goals.

"When I was third trumpet Dr D was the Drum Major. Our marching and field show bands under NY legend David Bournazian won many local and state competitions. I was just happy to be part of it, but Dr. D was leading it. He has deep knowledge of music theory and is equally expert at improvisation. His ability to communicate theory to beginners or higher level learners is amazing. He has the unique skill of being able to make complex concepts seem simple with illustrative examples until you find yourself starting to 'get it'. Highly recommended."

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 …
