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.

About Francisca

Hi there, my name is Francisca! I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the University of Western Sydney Australia with (High Class Honors) and Majored in Music Performance (voice major) and Sub Majors in Composition and Theatre. I love working with beginning and intermediate level students.

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!

15+ years' experience -- math and science specialist!

If you've been muddling along with algebra or chemistry has you hitting your head against the wall, I've got your back! Focused but encouraging, enthusiastic but personable, I've patiently helped my students reach that "light-bulb moment" countless times.

Guiding someone to understanding a concept they struggle with is of course a major part of tutoring, but I'm also really big on coaching students to be methodical and have a system. Content knowledge is only part of the puzzle; problem-solving skills are crucial. Check out my testimonials to hear from my students themselves on that!

About Stephanie

NOTE: I recommend 90 minutes for a first session -- in my experience, 60 minutes tends not to be enough to both get the lay of the land and deliver a reassuring and substantive amount of support. I look forward to working with you! I went to Princeton University and studied molecular biology. I w

Music Theory is a broad area that comprises both an understanding of HOW music is constructed and WHY those constructions are what they are. For example, there are three types of minor scales: natural, harmonic, and melodic. The HOW of minor scales includes the pattern of half- and whole-steps that create that particular scale. The WHY explores the history of the evolution of the modal system to the major/minor system and how natural minor (originally aeolian mode) was adapted to meet composers' desires for harmony and melody to function to their liking.

Whether you're a beginner that needs help learning to read music and understand rhythm, an intermediate player trying to crack the mystery that is key signatures or playing with a metronome (hint: it's a learned skill and one that can be taught!), or an advanced music student who needs help with AP Music Theory, college music courses, or a more functional understanding of what you're doing as a performer, I can help. My training is ...

"Ms. Charlene has been my piano teacher for ten years. She is very patient and dedicated. I was shy but gained confidence as I expanded my piano repertoire. I participated yearly in the CM piano evaluations organized by the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC) and was selected almost every year to perform at the Branch Honors Recitals. Since completing the Advanced level CM and moving to college, I have stopped taking piano lessons from Ms. Charlene. However, I still play the piano whenever I have the time. I highly recommend Ms. Charlene as a piano teacher."

What is the Difference Between Major and Minor?

Students often ask about the difference between major and minor. These terms have two applications in music theory. One use relates to chords (harmony). A second use relates to scales (modes). Both are related.  To understand these concepts deeper, you have to first understand intervals. An interval is the space between two notes. Intervals help to define the  relationship and interaction between notes. This also includes the formation of chords.  Third Intervals  The smallest inter …
