Learn how music works! Keys, scales, modes, chords, etc.
I'll show you how to get specific feels, moods and emotions.
We start basic and go from there until you have a real working knowledge that can be used with any instrument or style of play.
Theory is a very important part in learning to play and sing. I teach the meaning of notes, the types of notes, and how to read notes. I teach the meaning and purpose of the music, staff, timing,accidentals, phrases, and all other fundamentals of theory.
My method of teaching makes it fun and easy to learn.
BA in Music Theory and Composition from Antioch College.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method is very practical and customized to every individual. I do not believe that you can use the same style with every student because everyone learns differently.
Although I teach music theory alone, it is usually related to a given instrument (piano, voice, guitar, etc) that the student is interested in exploring. Whatever the case, I gather where the student is at currently and go from there, starting from total beginner to advanced chord and extended scale study. Sometimes a guitar player, for example, will want something very specific, such as composing a melodic guitar solo over a given chord progression. A vocalist may want to learn how to harmonize with themselves in key. I strongly emphasize teaching theory, and then applying.
I tend to cut a lot of the 'fat' out of the typical theory study and go right to what the student will need for their given goal.
Some theory topics:
Keys, and key building
I can teach beginner, intermediate and advanced classical and jazz theory. I cover topics such as key signatures, circle of fourths, heptatonic, octatonic and chromatic scales, modes of major, melodic minor and harmonic minor, diatonic transposition, triads, seventh chords, chord progressions, etc.
