About Esther

I'm Esther, a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself piano and singing in a choir at the age of 9. I moved to the U.S. in 1992 and studied music for 10 years receiving my B.M. & M.M in music at California State University of Sacramento. I studied and trained with Claudia Kitka &

Mrs. Esther is a really kind, patient, and honest piano teacher. She helped me work through my mistakes and told me what I needed to work on in order to improve. Her way of teaching is effective and it helped me gain more knowledge about piano and the techniques of being a good pianist. She is very caring and understands when I'm in a difficult situation and she always encourages me to keep going. I enjoyed all the experiences I had with Mrs. Esther and the unique personality she had. For the past 9 years, I have learned a lot about music and the hard work that goes into playing the piano. I will never regret having Mrs. Esther as my piano teacher and the adventures I had.
Lawrence
Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

Ever wonder why theory is important? A lot of people don't want to learn theory or are scared of it. If this is you, I'll explain how to navigate music without using theory while also showing how theory can be a helpful tool. If you're here to learn more about theory because you need to or you're interested in learning more about it, some of the topics I'll cover are listen below.

Tailored to your skill level, you'll learn:
-high vs low notes
-ascending vs descending
-sharps, flats, and naturals
-key signatures
-time signatures
-major vs minor
-other modes
-rhythm and melody
-transcriptions
-form
-chord recognition
-intervals
-harmonies
-transposition
-much more!

My teaching style is casual, yet theoretical. I'm easy going, but also passionate. I tailor my style and difficulty to match each individual student.

If you have any questions or want to meet in person to see if it's a good fit, let me know! :)

I teach music theory from an applied perspective; as a composer, I help my students learn theory through actually doing music. My students will learn to identify music theory in the music they already make, and will be challenged to compose music incorporating the music theory they learn.

In addition, I have specialized insight in the fundamentals of approaching music, and other art forms, cross-culturally, due to my studies and experiences with World Arts and Ethnomusicology. At more advanced levels this may include complex analysis of art forms avoiding labels like 'music' and 'dance' since it may not be possible to analyze an art form fully, without analyzing complex multi-modal features of these art forms.

About Jeffrey Zane

As an ethnomusicologist/world arts researcher and an award-winning composer whose music has been described as "what Renaissance composers would have written if they had heard gospel music," I enjoy being known for music that draws from many sources, is intellectually rigorous, and is pleasant to the

Music theory is a skill that can be very helpful to anyone involved in music. Singers find it very helpful in learning songs, understanding how the musicians are accompanying the singer, writing songs and so much more. Musicians can find it helpful simply being able to read music, get a good grasp of how to deal with various keys, more ideas on solos and much more. For songwriters, it is a most important tool.

My approach to teaching Music Theory, is to find out what level the student is at from beginner to advanced and what is the most important aspect of music theory that will immediately help as to what the student is trying to accomplish musically;

My formal background in music Theory is as follows:
I am a professional musician, producer, composer, and author for over 50 years.

He has had outstanding experience with acclimating to every student's needs and learning style. He provides a great environment/atmosphere which is critical to learning.

"This tutoring session was probably the best I have ever had. I am taking a Music 101 course in which I am finding myself having trouble with. I took up tutoring with Stephen and he really broke down the steps. Sometimes, I do not understand things the first time when they are explained to me; and reading music happens to be one of them. However, I am very lucky to have Stephen as my tutor who is very patient in explaining the lesson to me. If you want a tutor who is patient and willing to invest time in helping you understand music, I highly recommend that you take Stephen."

"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!!!"
