Private Music Theory Teacher

I have experience with music theory all the way through college level harmony. My degree path at Berklee College of Music provided many tools to aid a working understanding of music theory and how it applies to composition and analysis of music. I enjoy helping children, teens, and adults find joy in understanding music theory, from the most basic foundation to intricate chord and rhythmic structure.

I study classical piano and music theory with Ms. Ellis. She is very supportive and encouraging and personalizes lessons and instruction based on each student's skill level and goals. I learn pieces of music that I enjoy, and she provides suggestions and feedback to help me improve my technique, articulation, and rhythm. I think that I have made a lot of progress as a classical pianist through her instruction. Studying music theory with Ms. Ellis has also been very helpful to me, and I have learned a lot about the applications of music theory through the pieces that I am learning. I enjoy having Ms. Ellis as a piano teacher, and I highly recommend her.

Music Theory is the Core of Understanding how ALL Music works anywhere in the world and applies to all Instruments. It's the insight into why we use certain Notes, Chords, & Scales and what makes them work. To have the knowledge is to be a Musician, which is to Understand that when writing a Song, or Improvising all thinks can work as long as you can make it work. It's the Musician who can figure out why it works so he or she will know where to go or what to play.

Online Music Theory Teacher

As a music student at Stony Brook University, I worked with some of the finest music academics in the country. I have studied music history and theory at high school, undergraduate, and masters degree levels. I can help you prepare for the AP Music Theory exam, undergraduate aural training courses, and more.

I can help with both targeted work on course materials and broad goals like music analysis/interpretation/composition (especially in the western classical genre). I can also offer music history and musicology, if desired.

Whether students are looking to learn the basic foundations of music theory, an understanding of music theory as it applies to performing on their instrument, or the ability to analyze music for scholarly works, my understanding of music theory is thorough and can be catered to all levels.

Sarah went from a baby banging pots to a professional musician performing in Carnegie Hall and with Grammy Award winners.

"When looking for an instructor what is best to find is knowledge of the subject. When it comes to Mr. Newbold, he delivers; Whether it be current or past. He has had outstanding experience with acclimating to every student's needs and learning style. He provides a great environment/atmosphere which is critical to learning. If his credentials don't speak enough, then his personal musical talent should."

"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."

"Jimmy is a great instructor. He takes you seriously no matter what you skill or knowledge level is. When I started with Jimmy I could play guitar but generally only Cowboy chords.

Jim was patient, he analyzed how I played , what I knew and he tailored lessons around what I knew. That way I got the most out of my time and money spent. I can go on and on about Jimmy but for you sake I'll just say that I highly recommend him"
