My theory training came from the top notch theory staff at Chicago College of Performing Arts. I love to teach music theory from building major and minor chords to jazz modes, chord progressions, four part harmony, voice leading, etc. I am currently a tutor at the University of Iowa for undergraduates taking music theory and am especially knowledgeable about that course material.

A basic understanding of how the theory of music works; i.e., scales and how they are made up, key signatures and why, basic music notation, and chords and how they are constructed will equip you so that you can write your own songs down! Great composers of the past understood the basics of the structure of music, and therefore were able to compose great works even from an early age. As the ancient writers have shown us, an understanding of the workings of the musical scale can lead to a greater understanding of Creation itself!! Let's dig in!

If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. She is that good of a teacher. Her intuition is superb. She knows not only what the problem is but how to solve it. She uses different approaches until we find the one that helps me get through a difficult passage. She has gotten me to do things that I never thought I would be able to do. And the fact that she is a wonderful person to work with is the icing on the cake. I could not recommend her more to anyone looking for singing lessons.

Denise is a great teacher! She is patient, knowledgeable, super encouraging, and really pushes you to put your best foot forward with confidence. Looking forward to learning so much more in the coming weeks and months. Thank you, Denise!

Music Theory is discussed daily in my studio! Where would we be without it! I introduce principles that are required for any given piece - but recognize that a discussion on Music Theory can take up the whole class - so I am careful to review applicable items as needed. The music binder that all students use are filled though out the months with various Music Theory concepts along with exercises and repertoire. Acquiring Music Theory knowledge is not left to chance and this topic is a big part of my upcoming piano book due out in mid-Spring of next year.

He explains complicated theory in a practical way for anyone to understand. If I wasn't leaving Chicago I would have signed up for ten more lessons.
