Private Music Theory Teacher
About Rich

Music has always been my biggest passion. I started playing guitar at the age of 10, and I haven't been able to put it down since. In grade school I started my first gigs playing in bands and spent all of my time outside of school playing guitar.

Coming from a family of eight where there wasn't much money for schooling, I put myself through high school and college gigging, and teaching.

I earned a music degree from Wayne State University in performance guitar, studying under the likes of Joe Fava and Charles Postlewate. At the same time playing extensive clubwork, shows, concerts, studio work and teaching.

My styles include virtually all elements of guitar. Rock, Blues, Metal, Country, Classical and Jazz.

In "2006", I opened up a guitar studio in South Lyon Mi, where I taught, along with lessons from my home.

*** Lesson D

etails ***
I take a very serious, professional approach to my music studies and my teaching, but with a very humorous, and free-flowing concept to keep my students interested. I am very patient, and truly care about the progress of each student.

Each student that I teach has a different lesson structure depending on what the student wishes to accomplish. I tailor each lesson to help them move closer at a rapid pace to whatever style of music they have the strongest interest in. But because guitar is such a diverse instrument with many different established forms of technique, I do advocate developing proficiency in multiple styles of playing.

While I completely approve of learning to play music from TAB which expedites the playing of actual songs, I highly recommend that beginning guitarists learn to read music as you never know what they might end up doing with their knowledge. (Studio work, shows, teaching, or other scenarios where reading music is essential).

Starting to learn any instrument can be a challenge. But with persistence, guidance, and actual progress, learning how to play an instrument can be of the most rewarding experiences, regardless of your age. With my help, you or your child will be able to enjoy the experience of discovering how fulfilling playing can be.

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in living room, music stands, acoustic & electric guitars, amps/cables

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide a loaner guitar for a lesson if necessary.

*** Specialties ***
All styles - Rock, Country, Jazz, Classical, Blues, Metal

Look Forward to seeing you!

I just finished a series of online upright bass lessons with Dr. Norman. It's wonderful to have a lesson without toting the bass around town. Dr. Norman is impressive in skill and knowledge. There was nothing musically he didn't know, couldn't explain, or demonstrate on the bass. He has a keyboard at hand to play chords or emphasize a particular key, and he is proficient on that too. Dr. Norman is A++.

Private Music Theory Teacher

Music theory can be a daunting and sometimes unpleasant element of learning an instrument, whether it's piano, guitar, bass, or your voice. I love teaching the elements of music theory in a fun, easy to understand way. If you want to improve your ability to understand and learn music theory, come see me!

About Lola

I have more than 30 years of musical experience. I’ve taught guitar, piano, bass, and theater in private schools, art schools and I’m currently teaching at Classic Axe Guitar Gallery in Gainesville, VA. I’ve taught over 250 students in all levels of experience, tailoring each lesson to fit each student, covering all genres, so that learning their instrument is fun. It’s been exciting to see some of them become music majors, some of them become performers, and some using their skills and gifts to teach others. I love teaching and sharing my musical knowledge with people of ALL ages. I believe anyone can learn music, with the right approach and encouragement. Nothing gives me more pleasure than watching my students accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible.

Tyra is amazing. It was a bit hard to see virtually. We had to do FaceTime because your platform did not work which I believe was not a problem on my side but yours. Nonetheless I am looking forward to my next lesson. She’s a gem

Tyra is a wonderful teacher. My son (10) does lessons once per week. He has struggled in the group setting at school, but with Tyra he looks forward to his lesson every week and loves his time with her. Tyra has great methods of instruction, she knows her stuff, she's funny, kind, straightforward.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Music Theory Teacher

Students can expect to advance their musicianship skills in note reading, ear training, and sight singing, all while learning the Music Theory.

About Senobia

I am a professional singer from Columbus, Ohio. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Musicology, specializing in Classical Voice Performance.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. My versatility, experience, and formal training help me to make the learning experience easy, stress-free and fun.Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages mostly beginner piano. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the

student.

My personal passion is Jazz music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician! Currently, I sing for two different Big Bands that gig around Winchester, VA. gigging regularly & produce artists for their own projects. I spent much of the past 7 years performing and touring Colorado, Alaska, and now Virginia.

She is the best voice teacher I've ever had! She brings me out of my comfort zone and teaches me safer techniques for singing that I never would have thought about. She makes me feel safe and allows me to shine with every class.

"Music Theory and Music Performance

Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a s
trong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music."

"My middle-school aged son did a two hour session with Dr. Darrell one day where I would venture to say they covered a month's worth of music theory materi
al. After a while I got tired listening to it, but my son didn't. Darrell is patient yet firm, tough but caring. The pairing of Darrell's deep knowledge with a student who wants to learn is a powerful combination. He is committed to the success of his students."
