Private Music Theory Teacher

Greetings! Alec is the Piano Teacher for Kids in Orange County. Along with tutoring piano, he is also a music composer for film, video-games, and multi-media. With over 15 years of piano-playing experience, and 5 years of teaching, Alec is happy and excited to achieve whatever your child's goals are in playing the piano.

Within the first few lessons, you or your child will be able to:
(1) Understand the Foundations of the Piano
(2) Effectively Read Notes
(3) Recognize Patterns in Music
(4) Use Both Hands Fluidly Within a Song

Alec's foremost philosophy in teaching piano is following the student's goals and dreams, not his own. While curriculum work is certainly vital, it is far more important that his students receive help they need in accomplishing their biggest aspirations in music. Whether your child wants to be a music composer, rock-star, or just playing for their loved ones, Alec can bring them closer to that goal.

Alec's promise to you is to ...

From the first time Alec met my grandson he was understanding, encouraging, extremely patient and knowledgeable. The next lesson assignments were clearly written out with the expectation that time would be allowed for daily practice.

Thank you, Alec
Sarah Jones
I got so much value for my daughter's piano lessons. I was surprised when she played her own songs to me. On top of that, Alec was very on top of things when it came to lesson planning, homework, and attendance. If you are new to piano, I would recommend signing up with Alec.

From understanding the basis of cadences through the cycle of fifths, to learning about chord substitutions and guide-tones for jazz, a strong knowledge of music theory is important for the composer, improvisor, and performer alike.

Tim is a terrific instructor. He balances moving my technical skills and theory knowledge ever forward with encouragement to just have fun playing electric bass. Tim is methodical yet lighthearted in his approach to teaching which works well with how I learn. I appreciate that Tim is a continual student himself even though he performs at a top level professionally. I look forward to each lesson I have!

I'm happy to teach regularly scheduled lessons or just a one time lesson if a student needs help!

About Carter

I believe that everyone has the ability to enjoy and be expressive on an instrument. It is miss instruction and a lack of passion in music education that allows students to become frustrated and bored, ultimately pushing them to quit their instruments. My goal as a music educator is not only to

Music Theory can appear to be a daunting foreign language. These lessons will bring the concepts easily and understandably into the light. I will personally lead you to practical and logical solutions that make Music Theory more naturally applicable to music, making it both easier and more practical.

There were so many concepts that I knew a little about, but Adam helped fill in the gaps of knowledge and familiarized me with the concepts so well, that I could teach them myself! He is patient, humorous, and a complete joy to take lessons from."

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 am a good pianist but I really wanted to work on music theory and analysis. I chose Aaron because I wanted to know more about what I was playing. Aaron has really provided me with profound insight on multiple levels into the music I am working on, such that my performances have gained entirely new meanings. I have been working on Shostakovich's Piano Concerto no. 2 and he has really helped me to understand the harmonies in the second movement. Aaron has a warm, inviting personality and is a delight to take lessons from. I highly recommend this teacher."

"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!"

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 …
