I started Music Theory in high school when I first took the AP Music Theory. It was by far one of my favorite classes. I loved it so much that it pushed me to major in music and picked up a Composition major in 2014. I even became a Music Theory tutor and assistant at University of North Texas.

It includes considerations of melody, rhythm, counterpoint, harmony and form; tonal systems, scales, tuning, intervals, consonance, dissonance, durational proportions and the acoustics of pitch systems; composition, performance, orchestration, ornamentation, improvisation and electronic sound production; etc.[

For the beginner, I will break music therory down into easy to understand segments so that it will not be as overwhelming to someone who’s never learnt music theory before. For those who have learnt music theory before but need a refresher, I will make sure there are no gaps in their knowledge and go from there.

I’ve been working with mrs Kim, since the beginning of summer!! I always sang in the shower or just too sing I felt like I had a future with it if I continued and took lessons so I decided too ask my mom and she signed me up with mrs Kim! It’s only been a few months since I’ve been working with her in my voice and I’ve improved so much since IMY first lesson! She’s help gotten me too we’re I am right now. Mrs Kim is such an amazing teacher. She’s is very honest and open with things you need help or need to work on. She’s also a very good singer and has amazing taste in music ! But she’s really helped me find my voice, find out if I wanna continue doing music. She’s helped a lot with my voice and overall just finding my melodys a little better because rim a dancer so I pick up melodys pretty easily but sometimes I need help with finding the exact melody and really helps. Overall I’ve loved working mrs Kim and I want to continue working with mrs kim!!
Justin R.
Chau has been a great instructor/coach for me. She has forced me out of my comfort zone to make me a better singer overall, rather than just learning how to sing what I'm comfortable with. She focuses immensely on breaking bad habits and building/reinforcing good ones. She's extremely knowledgeable, with a great ear, and very keen to the mechanics of what creates a certain sound. With that, she is able to clearly articulate what you're doing to create the sound, in a relatable and understandable way. She's strict, but if you really want to excel, she'll be able to push you there.
Anthony Brandon
I've been taking lessons online and in person from Chau for almost a year now and I can honestly say, I wouldn't have had it any other way. She is an extraordinary teacher who is very good at communicating and understanding her students. I remember being terrified of singing out loud when I first arrived with her. Since then she has allowed me to open up and has made a huge difference in not only the way I sing but the way I live my life as well. She pushes me to be the best singer I can be and helps me believe in myself even when I am in doubt. She is truly an amazing teacher and lovely human being that I'd recommend to anyone regardless of singing goals or experience.

I feel very fortunate to have had Tammy as my dear friend and colleague for years. She possesses a contagious passion and enthusiasm for her craft. She is an absolutely inspiring performer and a very knowledgeable, gifted teacher. I recommend her wholeheartedly!
Cory W.
Ask any musician, and they will tell you that making the choice to invest in a private music instructor is a critical step in growth and development--no matter the individual's age or experience level. When you're devoting time and energy into bettering yourself, you want to know that you're learning from a friendly, accessible, and most of all qualified, teacher. Dr. Tammy Y. is all of these things and much more.

Dr. Tammy Y. never failed to challenge me in the pieces she assigned, never failed to help me prepare to my very best ability for auditions or recitals, and never failed to give her honest and helpful critique and advice to help me advance as a flutist.

To anyone looking for a private flute instructor, I would recommend highly, wholeheartedly, and very enthusiastically to learn from this amazing teacher and performer. So whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced, young or old, Dr. Tammy Y. provides the very best resources and sets the highest expectations for her students.

"I have been taking theory/harmony lessons with Mr. Joseph Nikita for 4 years now and couldn't be any more satisfied with his teaching style.
Mr. Nikita takes the complex concepts of music harmony and breaks them down to the point where they become easy to understand, retain, and apply to my homework and compositions.
One thing I much admire in Mr. Nikita's teaching is the variability in his explanations. I don't prefer learning in a lecture-style environment (where the teacher lectures and the student takes notes), so Mr. Nikita takes each topic and explains it in multiple ways - using real-life applications and examples. This helps me obtain a clear understanding of each lesson - making it easy to go in depth in music harmony."

"I needed help knowing how to arrange a full band work for my Instrumentation Class project. I offered to pay him to do it for me but he wouldn't do that (haha). But he did sit with me and show me how to do it myself and I was happy I learned something. It wasn't great but if I had the desire to be an arranger then I would definitely study more with Jeremy."

"My name is Mary Mercurio Santos, and I am the Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction Coordinator for Azusa Pacific University. Adam worked under my direct supervision as a Tutor and Supplemental Instruction Leader for approximately three years while he was an undergrad at APU.
Adam's knowledge of music, and Music Theory is extensive and comprehensive, and yet he has the ability to break down these complicated theoretical concepts and make them easy to understand for even the most basic learner. I have seen him successfully tutor students at all levels of musical knowledge and experience. If you need to know ANYTHING about music, I strongly recommend you reach out to Adam for services."

"Emily has a strong commitment to making sure her students are learning about music while continuing to enjoy what music can bring to their lives. She not only taught me how to read, listen to, and study music, but she taught me why music is important and how I can live it. Emily teaches with grace and poise. She finds a way to relate to students of any ambition or experience. As a high school student looking to still be involved in music in college, Emily was able to find connections in several cities for me because of her numerous experiences of networking in the music world. She has a broad range of musical talents and has the ability to immediately connect with her students. Emily has not only been a great teacher for me, but a great friend."
