Private Music Theory Teacher

Music Theory is essential for every well-rounded musician. A musician should know why something sounds good. Simple theory includes note names, reading music, melody, and rhythm. Complex theory includes how extended chord structures relate to each other, Serialism, and harmonization.

Vince first encountered music theory when he began playing trumpet and reading music. He learned the basics; notes, scales, triads, key signatures, and time signatures. Later (especially when he first studied guitar and piano), Vince studied intervals, exotic scales, and chord progressions. At college and graduate school, he formally studied advanced music theory as applied to tonal harmony, twentieth century music, and jazz.

Often, theories are built upon other theories and thus support each other. Vince teaches the basics up to more advanced theoretical concepts - to any musician regardless of instrument - how they can be successfully applied in practice.

About Vince

Vince privately teaches trumpet, guitar, electric bass guitar, arranging, composition, music theory, ear training, and improvisation to students of all ages and levels. “Basically he’s the go-to cross-genre horn-blowing utility man of the Philly scene” (John Vettese, WXPN’s The Key). Vinc

Private Music Theory Teacher

Having attended Westminster Choir College and taken music theory based classes in highschool, I have had experience with everything from basic theory to music analysis to ear training and more. I have taken practical theory classes and music history/world music classes which have contributed to my understanding of the patterns in and characteristics of a wide variety of musical genres. At Drexel University, as a music therapy masters student, I was expected to improvise and transpose at a moments notice. These experiences have convinced me that it is in the musician's best interests to have a strong foundation of theory knowledge, and I emphasize theory approaches to understanding music in voice, and particularly piano lessons, as I believe this will help the student to better predict and understand an underlying musical structure to a song, helping with his or her reading fluency.

Faith is fantastic! Just in a few lessons, I've improved my tone and worked on my weak vibrato and she even did research on helping me decide on a new flute. She is super professional, fun, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!!

I like how Ms. Wasson takes the time to thoroughly explain each piece that we learn such as the history of the composer and the music theory involved in each piece. She is also a very patient teacher who answers all of my questions and helps me work through any parts of the lesson that I find difficult.

I love music theory and enjoy teaching it greatly. I think it's so great because there is one right way and once you understand it you know it for life. I think it is very important for any musician to understand the theory behind what they are doing in order to fully appreciate the music.

Learning music theory does NOT have to be scary! Learn music theory with me! I have over 20 years of experience teaching music theory on the college level, and I have taught the classes you might be struggling in or want to know more about. I LOVE helping students understand a hard concept and making it simple. I have a PhD from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, one of the largest music theory programs in the country.

Dr. Kennedy (Amy) was so phenomenal to work with. I felt so enriched by our conversations and one-on-one work. She encouraged me to dig deeper and push past the surface when analyzing works, an important skill I use every day as a theorist. I always left feeling like I had a good grasp on the content, but even more important I left feeling valued as an academic and human. Highly highly recommend her services!

He is very knowledgeable of the subject, and has a clear, friendly, and logical teaching approach that makes the experience fun. He can explain topics and concepts in a way that is easy to understand.
He is also very knowledgeable in music composition, arranging, and in the use of Logic Pro software that he could use while teaching theory."

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …
