Theresa is a wonderful teacher. I am a beginning cello student but with 12 years of upright bass experience, and she tailors our lessons to match my classical knowledge and play style with the basics required transitioning to a new instrument. She has an incredible depth of knowledge and communicates it in a way that is easily understood and and applied, regardless of whether it's bow technique, musical phrasing, or historical in nature. It has made learning a new instrument a great joy - thanks, Theresa!

Mike taught Leo in person before the pandemic started and has been doing online lessons with him for the past eight months. He is amazing with both. Leo has a very short attention span, but a deep love for music. Mike has been able to hold Leo’s attention every week for over a year — even during online lessons. Leo has become an awesome little pianist, and has developed a love for the piano. It has given him the ability to express all of his feelings and has helped his attention span for his schoolwork. Mike has so much patience, and always inquires about Leo’s favorite activities. He is great with kids and makes them feel so comfortable. Leo loves his “booming voice” and the free play blues music they get to play together every lesson.

Online Music Theory Teacher

Music theory is a must for all my composition students and any instrumental students interested in moving to advanced levels. My experience with music theory is deep and broad and I can take my students to any direction they wish depending on their goals - from basic songwriting, to advanced 20th century compositional techniques and jazz and more.
I also incorporate counterpoint, arranging, orchestration and history.

From the casual student to the aspiring professional, I tailor my approach and focus on meeting the unique needs and goals of the student rather than applying a contrived method or curricu

My 9 year old son has been taking lessons with Daniel for the past 3 years. During this time we have seen a lot of growth in our son's musical abilities. We really appreciate Daniel's patience and flexibility within his lesson plan. Our son had learned theory, music history and practiced ear training all within his lessons. Recently our son was writing a "score" for one of his home made movies. Daniel was able to give him "real world" advice and incorporate that into his lesson. We are thrilled to have been referred to Daniel and look foreword to having our 4 year old start lessons next year.

Daniel is great with my twin boys as he teaches one piano and the other drums, with equal flair!! He has patience, is punctual and has these annual recitals that are wonderful.
Shawn S.
Daniel is an awesome instructor. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about music and knows how to teach and convey that enthusiasm about music to his students. I thoroughly enjoy my weekly harmonic lessons with him.

I'm also very happy with how my daughter is advancing in her piano lessons wit h Daniel. Right after we switched over to Daniel for her piano lessons I noticed a huge improvement in her musical abilities.

Thank you, Daniel!

"Before attending Berklee College of Music, I had zero formal music theory training. In addition to that disadvantage, I've also struggled with a learning disability my whole life. Because of all this, once classes started, I quickly realized I was in way over my head, and requested a tutor to help- which is when I met Eli! After our first session, it was clear that "knowledgeable" or "helpful" are really understatements when describing his level of expertise. What Eli is, is brilliant- he knows music theory like the front and backs of his hands, and is able to COMMUNICATE it to you in a clear and easy way. Not only did I learn more effectively with Eli's help, but my music theory professor nominated me for the music theory spring scholarship award, and I won! I never would have gotten as far as I did in my music theory studies without his help; I truly admire his intelligence. And lastly, but certainly not least-ly, he is an absolute PLEASURE to work with- I didn't just get a great tutor, but I got a great friend too! Please do yourself a favor and work with Eli, I can promise you you won't be disappointed!"

"The lessons (piano & music theory) I learned from Buzz Amato was the sole reason I got signed to a label & was able to produce 2 Billboard charted singles (which he co-produced with me). I now tour the world djing and produce with talented artists that come to me based off my musical knowledge, that I received from Buzz. I can honestly say NONE of this would happen without the musical instruction of Buzz. Thank you Buzz!"

"As Jim states on his bio, he teaches from age 8 and up. I'm one of his "up" students who's been playing guitar for a few years, but never took time to learn theory because I thought it was too confusing or difficult to learn. After being stuck in a rut for the past 30 years, I finally realized that I could be a guitar player, instead of just playing guitar, by understanding WHY I'm playing what I playing. I planned to take a few lessons to see how it would go. That was 4 months ago. Now when I pick up my guitar, I have a plan and am excited to learn more each week. Jim's approach to teaching theory makes it clear for anyone of any age or expertise. If you're young and want to learn the right way, Jim will teach you the right way. For us older folks, I found out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks... I highly recommend Jimmy!"

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …
