Music Theory is covered for all ages and levels from beginner to advanced. My suggestions for beginner kids ages 5-9

Lisa Ng series of "Theory made Easy" this book is great! it combines puzzle solving, note reading, stickers and is a fun way to introduce kids to music theory.

For the student that has had some theory experience, The "Master your Theory" series is great. by Charles S. Peters and Paul Yoder book1-6

Similarly, Alfred's Basic Piano for adults has theory combined in the piano books for those who start at a later stage.

I love Francisca’s patience, openness and expertise with vocals and playing the keys. I enjoyed our lively and very down to earth session and learning about breath and vocal health. She gave me tips since I lived in a Nevada which is a very dry place and ways I could improve my vocals in that climate.
I recommend anyone who is looking for a straightforward approach to technique to get lessons from Francisca! She is amazing!
Stacey
What a wonderful experience it was to work with this instructor. Her own experiences and talent far surpasses anything I had expected to experience in an online session.
She has an ability to help me find my voice and I am truly grateful to work with someone with her patience and ability to adapt to my level of learning. She is wonderful for any age group and extremely accommodating to make time for lessons.
I would recommend everyone to give her a try and would guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Jenny
I’ve had such a great time doing virtual lessons with Francisca! It is always so scary and nerve-racking to start with a new instructor, but I immediately felt at ease. Her energy is welcoming and calming, and What I admire most is that she can feel when I’m not emotionally in the song but instead in my head. Thank you for pushing me to break through these vocal cord cobwebs and get these pipes polished!

Music Theory is an exciting way to explore the inner workings of music. Why do certain harmonies sound good, and others clash? What makes a good melody? Through tutoring in music theory, you will gain an understanding of the underlying rules and strategies used by composers for centuries to make music "work." This knowledge can be applied to your study in any instrument to inform and enhance your performance.

I loved exploring music theory in college - so much so that I served as one theory professor's student worker, and a private tutor, for five semesters! Since then, I have loved incorporating theory into my private music lessons, and I plan to pursue a Master's degree in music theory pedagogy in the future.

Private Music Theory Teacher

I've studied music for over 25 years. I specialize in teaching classical music, but also teach pop/Broadway/Sacred styles. I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in Professional Studies: Piano and have been teaching professionally since February 2008 when MuzikAdict Piano Studio was established. I have experience teaching ages 3-84. I include theory in all my lessons and also love to dwell solely on music theory without emphasis on an instrument if that is your preference . Looking forward to meeting you!

Excellent teacher
Courtland A.
Dan was an awesome instructor - even after our first lesson I came away with a ton of actionable ways to practice and improve my playing.
Jack B.
I started my mission to learn how to play piano with zero prior knowledge or experience with Dan and I could not be more happy with my results thus far. Dan is an expert piano player there is no question about that. But more impressive is his ability to teach, having no prior exposure to piano lessons Dan was extremely helpful in introducing me to new topics and ideas that have helped me to improve as a piano player. He works based off of your own goals and is dedicated to teaching what you want to learn as well as what is necessary to learn in order to meet your goals. He is very flexible in scheduling lessons which is huge for me having a job who's schedule changes regularly. I will continue to take lessons from Dan in the future and highly recommend from my experience for anyone just getting into piano although I know he works with much more talented and experienced students as well.

Robin is a wonderful instructor. She is patient and knowledgeable. She really cares about her students and helps them to achieve their goals. I highly recommend her!
George
Robin is a very compassionate, patient teacher who truly cares about your success as a student. She's a highly skilled musician with a wonderful ear and she knew how to give specific, understandable guidance to help me learn the very complex art of singing. I came to her as a 61 year-old beginner with no singing experience. Robin always made me feel comfortable and was always supportive and understanding through all of my struggling and stumbling. With her kind support and expert training, I was able to take my singing way beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Robin, no matter what your age or skill level. She's a teacher with heart.

Was my first ever vocal coach and I was not let down. Amazing teacher. Very personable and also has an amazing taste in music!!! Highly recommend

Zack explains things clearly and works thoroughly to make sure you understand each topic and how it works before moving on. I recommend him to all of my music friends, and if you're reading this I recommend him to you,

"I was a music student at Azusa Pacific University and Adam Tune helped me with Music Theory for two semesters. He is very knowledgeable of the subject, and has a clear, friendly, and logical teaching approach that makes the experience fun. He can explain topics and concepts in a way that is easy to understand.
He is also very knowledgeable in music composition, arranging, and in the use of Logic Pro software that he could use while teaching theory."

"Patricio is the type of teacher that spends time making sure you understand the theory of music instead of just jumping to play the instrument. He knows how to integrate theory into his lessons so that everything make more sense when playing the instrument. He is very knowledgeable about music which makes the experience of learning enjoyable and fun. I had never touched a guitar before I started taking acoustic guitar lessons from Patricio, and he is gradually teaching me the basics with a lot of patience. I am still a beginner, but one of the reasons that I am still motivated to learn is because Patricio is so inspirational. I leave each lesson wanting to learn and practice more. In order to learn something new, you have to be inspired, and Patricio knows how to inspire people to learn."

I began lessons with him because i was not satisfied with the music theory classes at the school i am enrolled in, as well as the classes did not accommodate well to my learning differences. David not only has endless knowledge of music theory but also has shown me tools and helpful methods for studying music. I highly recommend taking lessons from David if you are either a beginner or you are at a higher level and would like to expand your knowledge of music theory."

"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 strong 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."
