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.

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!

Music Theory is necessary for learning music, no matter what you do. I can go through a basic music theory with you in this course together with you. After the basic course you'll be ready to start with form and harmony and build up a platform for composition or music analysis in the future.
