To know how to play the piano is important; however, to know the why of piano playing will increase your knowledge & playing ability.

About Ruthy

I have been playing the piano for over twenty years. I began at the early age of seven years old. Because piano has played such a vital role in my life, I believe it is a responsibility of mine to pass on such a delightful gift of piano playing to those who would like to make it a part of their life

Ruthy has been a great instructor. I started with her knowing very little about the piano. I have been working with her once a week and am seeing great improvement. I am learning notes, chords, and understand music. She makes learning fun and helps you to achieve playing songs that you really like and enjoy.

I believe that Music Theory is essential for all musicians. With a Master of Music from the Mannes School of Music, I am well-equipped to help you learn this skill. Lessons will include music reading, harmony, melody, rhythm, form, tempo, notes, chords, key signatures, intervals, scales, and more.

Students of all ages and levels are welcome. My music teachers have greatly impacted my life and my goal is to inspire my students in a similar way. Everyone has a unique learning style and I tailor my teaching to each individual. I love to teach and enjoy helping others achieve their personal musical goals. It would be a pleasure to help you with music theory!

About Isabel

Music is my great passion, and I have recently received my Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. Well-versed in many musical genres, I have performed in opera, recital, musical theatre, choir and piano performances and competitions in the US as well as inter

Whether you sing, play piano, guitar, woodwinds, brass, percussion, or any other instrument, or whether you write, compose, arrange, or direct, an understanding of music theory can help your practice, technique, and performance be easier and more effective. Both classical and popular music follow the same traditional patterns. I will teach you the basics of notes, keys, scales, chords, harmonies, and the other mysteries of musical tradition, not as rules to follow, but as guidelines for how to examine, deconstruct, and make sense of the music you hear, and help you apply it to your own musical work.

About Aaron

In 1999 I received a degree in music composition, and I've been composing, performing, directing, producing, and of course teaching ever since. I believe every student is unique, with individual strengths and challenges, an

Has a great approach and structure. Allows for lots of creative room, supplying the materials and knowledge and encouragement to help me become my own musician.
Bryant
I'm an adult beginner taking online piano classes with Aaron for about 5 months and I've learned an incredible amount from scales, transpositions, variations, chords, and so much more. I originally planned to just learn to play piano sheet music, but Aaron's instructions developed my musical abilities I never knew I had.
Dawn B.
Very pleased with Aaron's teaching style. Excited for my next lesson!

For the beginner, I will break music therory down into easy to understand segments so that it will not be as overwhelming to someone who’s never learnt music theory before. For those who have learnt music theory before but need a refresher, I will make sure there are no gaps in their knowledge and go from there.

I have been terrified of singing since I was young. I wouldn't even go to karaoke with my friends because I was scared of singing in public. Chau has helped me build up my confidence and has taught me so much about my voice. Highly recommend her!!!

Loving my lessons with Chau! She’s so patient and understanding. My lessons with Chau have shown me all the different angles and facets to singing. I look forward to every one of our lessons and I’m excited to see the improvements along the way! Thanks again Chau for everything!! (:

Passionate and patient instructor. Always takes the time to answer my questions and makes sure I understand each topic before moving on to the next.

Sylivan is a great teacher with great personality. He was there to help me not only when I struggled with music and guitar but also when I felt down. I asked him why he cared so much and he told me a healthy mind is most important which helps in music learning =) Sylivan is also patient; even sometimes I can't stand myself but he was there to help me to learn lol He has passion in teaching and you can see it once he's in action.

With 5 semesters worth of music theory classes, I can help you understand the confusing world of western music theory. I can help with ear training, reading sheet music, melodic and harmonic dictation, chord identifications, cadence identifications, score analysis, general western music history, counter point, four-part writing, and other music theory concepts. I passed general music theory, AP Music Theory and IB Music Theory with A's and am now studying at the University of Colorado Boulder as a music performance major. I passed Music Theory 1 and 2, along with Aural Skills 1 and 2 with flying colors.

"Jimmy is a great instructor. He takes you seriously no matter what you skill or knowledge level is. When I started with Jimmy I could play guitar but generally only Cowboy chords.

Jim was patient, he analyzed how I played , what I knew and he tailored lessons around what I knew. That way I got the most out of my time and money spent. I can go on and on about Jimmy but for you sake I'll just say that I highly recommend him"

David is a great tutor and teacher! He helped me to understand the basic fundamentals of music theory and how to develop the skills to be able to practice it at home. He gave me really good tips that were easy to understand and fun to learn. If you really want to learn how to compose, write and read music go to David!!"

"I had the pleasure and honor of being one of his students in Mexico City while I was in music college. He's a very disciplined teacher (never missed a class) and he has complete dominion over the subjects he teaches. Roberto's not only an amazing guitarist but he has a unique way of teaching music theory and history that makes you quite familiar with the different approaches to music over the different ages. He also shows a legitimate interest over his students, he challenges then and even owns when he's pointed out mistakes by them. During my time as his student I also realized that he was quite respected by the other professors. Fair warning: he can be a little sarcastic but he means no offense whatsoever to his students and fellow musicians."
