Analyzing a piece of music is almost like solving a puzzle. The only difference is, this puzzle often has multiple solutions. This is what makes music theory a special subject because for many composers who created pieces before modern day music theory, we are merely guessing their intentions but have no definitive answer. The only way to master this puzzle-solving process is repetition, repetition, and more repetition. Teaching students how to first dinstinguish the pieces of the puzzle from one another, then learn to break them down, takes time and patience. The most important task for the tutor is to let the student work through the puzzle with minimal interjections so they can understand how each piece fits together and enjoy the mystery of theory and analysis.

My daughter could not praise Emily enough. Comments: "always had a lot of ways to explain something when I didn't understand. She could change her teaching style depending on what I needed to learn. She was patient ."

Today was my 12 year old daughter's first session with Emily and my daughter said “It went great” Today’s math is extremely challenging and I’m very happy that I came across Emily to help my daughter.

Emily is excellent! Emily is very knowledgeable, yet knows how to convey that knowledge to the student. She is smart, confident, patient, kind, and personable! I would highly recommend Emily to any student seeking to move to another level in saxophone mastery!

Our first lesson with Michael went well. My 7yo son was a little nervous about taking lessons for the first time, but Michael had him playing some notes on the piano and talking soon after we started the lesson. He's looking forward to more lessons with him.

My daughters (8,4) take piano, violin, and voice with Mike, and have for 6+months. Mike is super patient, while teaching not only theory, but also ensuring the girls understand musicality. His style really encourages confidence, and pride in what the girls are able to accomplish. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to take lessons

I've really enjoyed my lessons with Michael. He's a good and patient teacher

READING IS NOT REQUIRED BUT IS ENCOURAGED

In Music Theory specific lessons, we'll focus on digging deep into music to understand it's parts (melody, harmony and rhythm) and how those parts work together to create the music we all love to listen to and play!

These lessons are ideal for:
- Lead players looking to develop more captivating ideas
- Chordal instrumentalists like guitarists and pianists looking to expand their harmonic options and voicings
- Improvisers of all levels
- Songwriters looking to increase the impact of their songs
- Producers struggling to create interesting chord progressions and hooks
- Aspiring composers and arrangers

What to expect based on level:
- Beginner: We'll focus on absolute fundamentals like musical alphabet, accidentals, major scales, pentatonics, intervals, triads, simple rhythms and simple meters, intro to functional harmony and basic chord progressions.

-Intermediates: For those comfortable with the materials in the beginner ...

"Lance has been teaching my 8 year old piano for the last few months, and we love having him in our home. He has a wonderful personality, is punctual, communicative, & great with kids. My daughter told me recently that she wanted to be a music teacher- it’s obvious what a positive impact he’s made with her in such a short amount of time. We are all a big fan and I highly recommend his lessons!"

"Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory."

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.
