We have loved Buzz as our piano teacher. We started lessons with him when we didn’t own our own piano. He had an extra keyboard and lent it to us. He is talented, knowledgeable, patient and kind. He has been an excellent instructor for my son. We look forward to more lessons with him.

Any role related to music requires some degree of knowledge of music theory.

Music theory is the study of how music works.

Whether you are a roady, sound engineer, music critic, producer, arranger, song writer, composer or anything else I haven't thought of, you MUST know enough music theory to perform your function.

Take my course to know the rest.

About Ronald

I am an experienced professional with a background in music performance, education, composition, theory and arranging. I don’t teach classical guitar any more, but if you interest are anywhere from folk to jazz, we are good to go. *** Lesson Details *** Few musicians or music students have id

A somewhat controversial topic in guitar instruction. Many people are adamant about not learning music theory because they either A.) say it doesn't apply to them or B.) are afraid it will tamper with their creativity. I understand where both of these mindsets stem from but I personally believe they are both wrong.

I have been through 4 years of college music, which includes 2 years of music theory and I can safely say that yes, there is definitely a point where music theory stops being useful and starts to become more of a thing you can use to impress your friends and nothing more. The great thing about music theory is that you don't have to get anywhere near that level of knowledge to reap immense benefits in your playing and writing.

A simple knowledge of chord progressions, chord voicings, keys, scales, and note choice can turn a bunch of cool sounding chords that you were messing with, into a chord progression that you not only understand what it is but also why it sounds

About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 29 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces

Robert
Christian is great. Excellent communication and knowledge of the guitar. Most importantly, his enthusiasm for the guitar is infectious. I'm very much looking forward to my next lesson. Highly recommended.
Dylan T.
A teacher of this caliber comes around once in a blue moon. His knowledge of the guitar and music is vast and he knows how to pass that on simply and effectively. He can take you where you want to go musically if you have the dedication. My creative potential has expanded beyond what I thought was possible. I am beginning to have a real experience of myself as a musician and the unfolding of my own music through the insight of his teachings. I definitely recommend learning from him!
Joseph
Christian was super helpful and helped me get a better idea of how i want to learn. Thanks so much!

"My name is Mary Mercurio Santos, and I am the Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction Coordinator for Azusa Pacific University. Adam worked under my direct supervision as a Tutor and Supplemental Instruction Leader for approximately three years while he was an undergrad at APU.
Adam's knowledge of music, and Music Theory is extensive and comprehensive, and yet he has the ability to break down these complicated theoretical concepts and make them easy to understand for even the most basic learner. I have seen him successfully tutor students at all levels of musical knowledge and experience. If you need to know ANYTHING about music, I strongly recommend you reach out to Adam for services."

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.
