Private Music Theory Teacher

Why would you like to learn music theory? Do you want to learn how to read music? Write songs? Improve your sight reading skills? I am an incredibly patient and positive teacher. Don't worry if you don't read music yet. I can guide you every step of the way.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Music from Ohio University, Athens Ohio, and post-graduate work in Music Composition at the University of Central Florida. At the Seattle Composer's Competition for New Harp Music, two of my compositions won first and second place. My music has been published by Lyon and Healy of Chicago.
I love to teach beginners and help them come to that "ah ha" moment. In sharing the "language" of music I would like to think that I help students access their full potential.

I am a beginner guitar player inspiring to become the next Eddie Hazel (Of Funkadelic fame for you unenlightened ones). I was referred to Jeremy by a former music teacher at Anne Arundel Community College. I was able to set up a weekly time with him at his house. He has a very clean and professional setting. I have been taking lessons under Jeremy's tutelage for a few months now. I have to say I am surprised at my own progress. My technical skills are blossoming but it's the music theory that is the real gift that Jeremy has given me. I always shrugged theory off thinking if I can hear it, I can play it. But now I am beginning to see the doors that music theory can open. Music is a vast universe and I have to give him credit for opening my ears, eyes, and mind to the possibilities of soooouuunds.

"I am a college student and have been struggling with my music theory class. Andree-Ann has helped me immensely to better understand my assignments and thanks to her, I was able to pass the class with a much better grade than I thought I would!

I highly recommend her as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable, responds quickly and knows her stuff."

"Without Jeremy, I never would've gotten my Master's Degree. As I was preparing for my comprehensive exams in music performance, I had five pieces ranging from Medieval all the way through 20th century that had to be studied and analyzed for the music theory section of my exam. Jeremy was able to help me (and my entire study group) by teaching us in a knowledgeable, yet approachable way. He has a great deal of patience and a very kind demeanor. I wish I had encountered a teacher like him while in my undergrad music studies. He simplified so many of the concepts and ideas of music theory which really helped me to understand the analysis process and gave me full confidence when taking my comprehensive exams. He never made me feel stupid when asking questions and even when he had to explain the same concept over and over (which that happened often) he never lost his patience. He is so incredibly knowledgeable as a musician and such a delightfully kind person."
