I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)

My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

Music Theory can seem like a hard or boring subject to learn and it has been for a simple reason. All theory info needs to be APPLIED to practical uses as it is being learned! My training in Study Skills has shown me how to teach a piece of theory and then immediately give the student examples and show ways to use it in songs... now. This provides the correct balance of Information and Application. Theory is a breeze done this way.

Ask about my book on Soloing and Improvization that exemplifies this approach.

About Peter

*** Specialties *** I teach all styles and all ages but my specialty is in electric rock music and applied music theory as in guitar soloing and improvisation as well as song crafting. I can teach a student any song requested by looking it up on you tube if you don't have it and immediately tra

Pete is the best instructor that I have ever had. He is the only person I ever had that was able to explain things in a way that I could understand. I have taken lessons from other people and was not able to learn anything.

All music is written with some guidelines mind. I can bring music theory to you in an interesting and understandable way. I use written work, ear training, and a bit of sight reading to help you master the basics of music. This is more of an academic class and will require some concentration and work, however the pay off is amazing. Music theory is a universal language and can help you connect to other musicians world wide. Contact me and let's talk about what you know and figure out how to expand your theory knowledge.

Music theory is extremely important for instrumentalists, composers, and singers. In our lessons you will be able to get help with papers, research, homework, test preparation, composition, or we can learn from scratch in my studio. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice. No experience is necessary, that is what I'm here for!

Online Music Theory Teacher

Hi there! I am a professional jazz, pop, and folk vocalist, pianist, and songwriter with a bachelor's degree in Jazz Voice from the University of North Texas. I firmly believe that learning more about music should be a fun, nurturing, and open-minded process (this isn't Whiplash, folks). No musician is exactly alike, so I work hard to create custom and unique curriculum for each of my students to ensure that they love the music and skills that they are working on!

My teaching incorporates many elements including healthy vocal technique, songwriting, improvisation, music theory, piano, and Finale music notation software. Whatever you're interested in, let's explore it!

I teach voice and songwriting in jazz, pop, folk, country, and R&B styles. I also teach piano and jazz theory. Contact me if you have any further questions; I'll gladly answer them all! I look forward to making music with you!

"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."

"Jillian's really smart and nice

I started taking lessons with Jillian around when i started high school a couple years ago. I play french horn in school, and I'm considering studying music in college, so I definitely needed to know more music theory. I play guitar too, so we started studying songwriting, too, so that I can write some songs with my band. Jillian's so nice, and really smart, so she makes it really easy to learn! I really like classes with her."

He shows through his examples and explanations that he really understands concepts of music theory and keyboard, as well on his clarinet too. I highly recommend hiring Jorge since he goes over the information at a good pace and nice manor. He will go over whatever you need help on."

"We hired Brian to work with our barely 3 year old to play the drums we got him for his birthday. He loves it! We don’t have any grand aspirations for him, but he likes to bang around and we wanted to give him some direction to see if he latched on to it. Our main objective is that he has fun. Brian is GREAT with him and he looks forward to it every week. 10/10!"
