Private Music Theory Teacher

As a teenager, I learned to play figured bass on a harpsichord in baroque ensembles for many years. My knowledge is classically informed and branches out into every modern style.
Harmony and music theory should be fun and enlightening at every level. It opens the doors to what are sometimes mysteries to our ears. It has enabled me to enjoy being able to play any piece I like by ear after only one or two listens. Understanding how music really works is very satisfying and I very much enjoy sharing that knowledge with my students and watching them become proficient in each discipline

British born and Educated at London's prestigious Trinity College of Music and The Royal Academy of Music, my professional musical career has spanned over two decades to date.

Outstanding instructor! Beckie is very positive and encouraging and my son has learned so much in just a few weeks. My son looks forward to his session each week. She is also an amazing musician herself and plays her instrument side by side with my son which allows him to hear and learn the individual notes.

Brian is one of the teachers that sticks with you for the rest of your life. He cares about his students and is an excellent teacher. He started me on a journey that had me playing euphonium for years after he moved.
Hunter
Brian is the reason I began to take tuba seriously and I am 100% certain that I wouldn’t be half the musician I am today if it weren’t for him. I took tuba lessons from in high school and he was great at challenging and pushing to get better and better every single lesson we had. I strongly recommend anyone who has the chance to study with him to please take it.
Nick
I took tuba lessons from Brian for a few years, and I highly recommend him. He is an excellent and passionate music educator. He is great at keeping students challenged and motivated, and he has a cheerful and fun personality. Thanks to Brian's help, I made first chair All-State tuba, won a couple of soloist competitions, and was accepted to multiple colleges for music performance. With those kinds of results, I wholeheartedly recommend Brian for private music lessons.

About Connor

Music, in every sense of the form, is a bridge to our emotions. Performing it sends chills down our spines, while listening to it causes us to feel whatever we need to feel in that moment. Music has always been a part of my life, I have 10 years of experience on violin, 8 on guitar and piano, and I

"Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory."

"AMAZING!

I met Dave in my music theory class at Ex'pression college. He's the reason why I'm making music today. I went from not knowing a thing about music theory or a piano to creating chord progressions, understanding modes, intervals, modal interchange, and how to read sheet music. He's extremely patient, professional, and easy to get along with. His passion for music and teaching is infectious, I highly recommend!!!"

Tim is an excellent, patient and caring instructor. I am a brand new guitar owner from a rural area in North Dakota. I was looking for a guitar teacher but all required a 30-60 minute drive.
