No student and no musician can truly understand music without understanding music theory. Playing the piano without knowing the notes is similar to trying to read a book without knowing letters. By default, I teach music theory simultaneously to all of my piano students. If you would like to focus more heavily on music theory, this class is for you! Depending on the student's level, we will be able to cover music theory related concepts starting with the very fundamentals all the way to graduate-level content. I have had the pleasure of teaching Music Theory both privately as well as at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the Tbilisi State Conservatoire.

If you are ready to start taking your music skills SERIOUSLY then stop wasting time and money on teachers who don't fully understand the instrument or subject matter themselves. My name is Russ and I have been playing guitar professionally for 20 years and teaching music and producing records for over 15. I have a Platinum #1 Billboard charting record under my belt, worked with artists such as Mac Miller, Sean Kingston, Red Velvet, Lifehouse and more; and have composed music to 100s of your favorite TV shows! Feel free to browse my official website for a full list of credits. Want to learn to shred guitar? Produce beats? Write your own songs? Dive into theory? Record yourself? This page is the one stop shop. Feel free to reach out with any requests or questions!

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.
