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.

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.

I've taken guitar lessons on and off for a while, and Cameron is hands-down the best teacher I've had. He points out specific technical good points and bad points, and offers concrete suggestions and examples for improvement. The lesson material is progressively challenging, but not overwhelming, and is targeted to the student's interests, and lessons are fun and interesting. Fantastic instructor.
Tessa
Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.

Online Music Theory Teacher

When I took my first music theory course as a freshman in college, I was blown away. Theory is about so much more than being able to read the notes on the page - it's about figuring out what makes music work. What is it about this passage that moves me to tears? Why does this note, in this circumstance, sound so jarring? What does the listener expect at this point in the music? Music theory can answer these questions and more.

With a Master's degree in Music Theory from Washington University in Saint Louis, as well as two years' experience teaching freshman music theory at the college level, I'm the theory teacher you want. Whether your theory goals involve learning to read music, chord analysis, or phrase analysis and beyond, I've got the education, experience, and know-how to help you reach them.

Great first lesson. Eased my fear as an older student that has never played an instrument. She has a nice approach based on my goals. Looking forward to learning more!

She is a great teacher with a lot of patience for this woman who always wanted to learn how to sing! I'm sure it isn't easy teaching online because of this time in our life, but she makes it fun!

"Albino is an amazing teacher and musician. He has the ability to inspire you musically and make you feel very comfortable while doing it. He has taught me many new approaches, tips, and tricks to music theory. He has helped me to be able to really understand why things are the way they are, and not just figure things out on paper like an equation. Definitely the best tutor I've ever had! I'd highly recommend him."

"He's a great tutor and a very nice guy. He was very understanding and flexible with scheduling, despite my multiple last minute cancellations and his teaching was well worth the wait. His teaching method might be slow at first, but it's clear he definitely knows his music theory and music history. Even though it's a little slow at first, he does help establish the basics and provide a more thorough understanding of the subject matter. Moreover, it made retaining the knowledge that much easier. It's also clear that he has a clear passion for the subjects he teaches and it bleeds into his teaching, which makes the subject considerably less dry and boring.

I'd highly recommend him to anyone who is just beginning music theory and/or piano playing as you'll pick up a solid foundation in these subjects. He is also extremely patient, making sure I understood the initial concepts before moving on to more complex topics. I just wouldn't recommend him for any last minute cramming: as he does like to take his time to provide a quality learning experience rather than just reviewing and memorizing."

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine.
