Experienced teacher of 5 years able to teach all levels of experience. I am a graduate of The New School of Jazz and Contemporary music. While at the New School I studied with some of the masters including Reggie Workman, Billy Harper, Jane Ira Bloom, Matt Wilson, Dave Glasser, Peter Bernstein, Vic Juris and many others. Additionally, I was a tutor for three years in every subject so I know their curriculum back to front. I am available to teach Ear training, Sight Reading, Improvisation, Music Theory, Rhythm, Arranging, Composition, Music Appreciation, Guitar doubling on bass and much more. I am able to teach all music styles. I also play French Horn and bass at a high level. I love teaching and helping students on their own musical paths. I am looking forward to meeting you and finding YOUR voice together!

Private Music Theory Teacher

I teach music theory to students of all ages and levels, from beginner to advanced music students. Topics in music theory range from basic note reading and chords to musical form and complex chordal structures.

I have taught and tutored college age students in advanced music theory as a Teacher’s Assistant in a music conservatory.

Having a strong understanding of music theory is directly related to becoming a strong player & performer. My passion is to help students understand the nuts & bolts of music and its structure so that they can become accomplished and well-rounded musicians.

Esther is the best piano instructor one can ever ask for. She is very patient and takes the time to make sure your child captures and understands everything. I would recommend Esther to anyone and everyone!
Diana
Ms. Esther is a great teacher! She was very patient and explained everything very clearly to me so that I could understand. I’ve had multiple piano teachers, but she was the first one that helped me really progress in playing piano and understand music theory. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher.

Feedback

Things are going great with our piano lessons. The lessons material Dustin selected is excellent. We had hoped for an easy and slow start and that is what we are getting.
TonyS
When I started taking lessons with Dustin, my goals were to improve my ability to play the piano, strengthen my ear, and to have a deeper understanding of music theory. Starting from our first lesson Dustin had a lesson plan already mapped out that would help me accomplish my goals. Now when I play piano, I have the ability to play and write songs with much less effort. The ear training Dustin provided has brought me to the point that I can identify chords and intervals in music clearly. With a good foundation of theory established, being assigned harmonic analysis of a musical piece is not a daunting task. Overall, I have been very happy with Dustin's style of teaching and plan to continue taking lessons with him.

She is very talented and a great instructor. She has an excellent ear and is very patient and helpful. I did not think I could ever carry a tune and all the progress I have made is thanks to her.

"When I was third trumpet Dr D was the Drum Major. Our marching and field show bands under NY legend David Bournazian won many local and state competitions. I was just happy to be part of it, but Dr. D was leading it. He has deep knowledge of music theory and is equally expert at improvisation. His ability to communicate theory to beginners or higher level learners is amazing. He has the unique skill of being able to make complex concepts seem simple with illustrative examples until you find yourself starting to 'get it'. Highly recommended."

"When looking for an instructor what is best to find is knowledge of the subject. When it comes to Mr. Newbold, he delivers; Whether it be current or past. 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. If his credentials don't speak enough, then his personal musical talent should."

"It has been a few years since our daughter, Michaela, took piano and music theory classes from Howard Richman. However, hardly a day goes by when she is not using something that she has learned from him. Whether she is writing a song, composing music, producing a track, playing the piano, singing, rehearsing, performing, etc…it always involves some aspect of her lessons with Howard. She is always referencing material from her classes with him. The enjoyment and confidence that Howard instills in his students, through his methods of teaching, truly must last a lifetime. Going to Howard was one of the best decisions that we have made regarding Michaela's career. In fact, as it turns out, it was a life changing experience for her. Needless to say, we have the very highest recommendation for Howard Richman."

"By far the best teacher I have ever had. Paul makes lessons engaging, and his wealth of knowledge never comes off as elitist. 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. Ask him about the own music he makes with his band. He's a super talented guy!!!"

"Ahmad is very energetic and passionate about guitar and teaching guitar to people. He is very organized and systematic in his teaching. His style of teaching enables students to learn and get to know a wide variety of guitar aspects very quickly. He breaks up lessons into short but consumable modules while at the same time giving something concrete to start playing and get going from the word go whether you are a beginner or not. I've been going to him for several months now and would highly recommend Ahmad for his guitar teaching skills!"

"Jack is the best music teacher I have ever had, hands down! I started taking lessons from Him about a year ago and am so glad I stuck with them. He is very patient and understanding, as I just could not understand any theory for the longest time. I used to play piano by ear so I knew some things but when it came to reason and theory I was so behind but ever since I started to take lessons from Jack, I feel more confident in my playing and in my listening as I try to apply all of the things he taught me. He is very down to earth and has an accent so it makes the who hour more enjoyable. Overall I would recommend Jack to anyone, no matter how little or how long they've been playing!!"
