I've taught music theory classes and privately for 20 yrs. I can help you to read music and improve your rhythm. I can also assist in A.P. music theory.
I use Julie Johnson's Guide to A.P Music Theory and The FJH Note Speller.
Students find that in a few short weeks they are improving in Music Theory classes and chorus/choir music is much easier to read.
It's fun when it's laid out easily.
Rudiments of music
I am educated in traditional and contemporary harmony and arrangement. Sight reading, music notation. conducting, rhythmic studies, notation/ tab for guitar, piano, bass, voice and drums. all styles
My philosophy of music theory is to break it down into bite-size pieces and ALWAYS give an immediate application on the guitar. That way it's not just an empty idea, but something you can see and something you can use.
The chromatic scale is the foundation of my whole method. It's easy to understand and allows you to name ANY pitch ANYwhere on ANY instrument, recognize notes on the staff, and play melodies (or write your own!).
That foundation also gives you access to major/minor scales, modes, pentatonic scales, key analysis, learning songs by ear, soloing...the list is endless!
I consider myself a theorist sometimes more than a musician. The studies that I use are a combination of taking songwriting structures and breaking them down so that they make sense to anyone. I teach chord progressions as well as scales and sometimes go a bit off the deep end when I feel students are ready.
I've helped a large number of people to get their music theory issues out of their way. Basically I know pretty much all about this subject and have a great, fun and efficient method of teaching it to those who needs it.

Music should be thought of as a language, and in order to speak the language, you should start by gaining a deeper understanding of the basics. That is what learning music theory will do for you.
