Sylvia is very good at taking the time to explain the reasons behind the why of doing certain things. Being an adult with no musical background what so ever she has really taken the time to teach me some basic fundamentals that are helping me build the solid foundation that I so very much want and need. Beyond the time we spend with one-on-one instructions she challenges me with exercises to practice on between our meetings. I explained to Sylvia what I was looking for and she has centered the training and instructions around that to ensure that my goals are being met. She is a pleasure to work with and learn from.

everything from basic "square one" (learning note names) to advanced jazz theory (harmonic/rhythmic), transposition, and music transcription (learning by ear and writing it down)… you can also learn to use theory to help you write your own songs. I teach theory to college-level music majors AND I can break music theory down really easily and simply for casual learners.

About Kelly

After 13 years of teaching all levels (I also teach music at Cornish College of the Arts - since 2015), and many different styles of voice and piano lessons, I can tell you this-- I LOVE teaching! My students have ranged from 5 to over 65, from classical piano, or jazz/pop piano, to pop/rock/jazz s

Kelly is easy to connect with and took the time to find out what my interests were so that she could create a plan oriented towards my goals.
Ryder G.
We are return customers to Kelly. My son loved her as a piano teacher but we stopped when he was taking trumpet during school. Now that he’s over trumpet, we excitedly reenrolled with Kelly. She’s so encouraging and positive. We just did my son’s first online lesson through TakeLessons and it worked flawlessly. I’d recommend Kelly in a heartbeat.
Amelia K.
Kelly is super friendly, encouraging and helpful. After a couple lessons I’ve already learned so much that I never learned while in choir or working with my previous voice coach. I’m really looking forward to continue working with her and excited to see what we can accomplish together.

About Daniel

What style do you want to play? I love to play it all. I mean it. So whatever moves you, we can work with that. I've played orchestral to hip-hop fusion, religious ceremonies to wine festivals, in motown, salsa, and funk bands, and with a jazz trio in a literal cave. So--it's up to you! *Lessons

Daniel is patient, kind and incredibly talented. He is so knowledgable and passionate about music, you can't help but be excited to learn! A fantastic teacher, highly recommend!!!

Thank you Daniel!

Daniel is a great teacher. His background and knowledge on Music Theory is phenomenal and helped me take my playing and writing to the next level.

Highly recommend!
Camille
I really like Daniel. His love for music is infectious. As a teacher, he's patient, crazy smart, and easy to be around. He's also a deep thinker, which makes him really good at using simple analogy to help me understand complex concepts. It's a fun way to learn. TBH I was very surprised to leave lessons not just having learned new ways of thinking about music, but also about myself, and how I can start moving out of my own way. I recommend Daniel without hesitation.

Want to have a deeper understanding of the music you're working on? Or maybe you want to play along to your favorite songs on the radio. We can work on ear training, understanding of chords and how to start basic improvisation.

I am an adult, and have had several teachers, and Julie is the best. She is warm and caring and friendly, with a nice sense of humor, and is also businesslike and focused. The lessons are fun, but you don't waste time. Her knowledge of different instruments and different kinds of music is very impressive. When she gives criticism, it's always constructive and thoughtful. She often gives praise when I do well, and the praise is also thoughtful. She gives good suggestions for practice and for working out a problem within the lesson. She treats me like an individual, and appreciates my musical interests, so doesn't try to make me do the same program as everybody else.
Becky
My daugher has been taking piano lessons from Julie for 3 years now. Julie is a wonderful person and a wonderful teacher. She is a brilliant musician and I am so thankful for her calm, clear, kind and patient manner of teaching. She is professional and also makes you feel at home. Julie's encouragement has helped my daughter progress musically and feel more confident with her playing. We adore Julie!
Emily
The absolute best in every way. My kids absolutely love her - and they are learning SO MUCH. I couldn't recommend her more!

Online Music Theory Teacher

Music Theory is essential for every well-rounded musician. A musician 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 started studying 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 through 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, The Key). Vince is a profess

But as far as I know you gave a great class on the basics of theory, which was wonderful. Thank you so much for your excellent class. Please let me know if I need to do anything more to change it to singing lessons.
Thank you!!

Kind regards,
