I took lots of Music Theory classes in college. I have written 2 progressive rock albums with lots of chords and studied Jazz which is loaded with music theory. We can work on getting a great handle on what the music is doing theory wise.

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!

Before my first class, I knew nothing about opera singing. I have had 10+ classes with Vanessa now and have learned a lot in techniques. She is very patient and knowledgable. She is able to tell instantly what's right or wrong which is super helpful.

Vince M.
I am a professional speaker and I decided to pursue some speaker voice coaching. This was my first lesson and Vanessa was friendly and great personality. I felt comfortable with her
immediately. She provided education, demonstration, observed me apply the techniques, and offered constructive feedback. After the class, I was excited to practice what I learned. I will definitely continue to go back to Vanessa. I highly recommend her.

I have experience with music theory all the way through college level harmony. My degree path at Berklee College of Music provided many tools to aid a working understanding of music theory and how it applies to composition and analysis of music. I enjoy helping children, teens, and adults find joy in understanding music theory, from the most basic foundation to intricate chord and rhythmic structure.

I study classical piano and music theory with Ms. Ellis. She is very supportive and encouraging and personalizes lessons and instruction based on each student's skill level and goals. I learn pieces of music that I enjoy, and she provides suggestions and feedback to help me improve my technique, articulation, and rhythm. I think that I have made a lot of progress as a classical pianist through her instruction. Studying music theory with Ms. Ellis has also been very helpful to me, and I have learned a lot about the applications of music theory through the pieces that I am learning. I enjoy having Ms. Ellis as a piano teacher, and I highly recommend her.

Online Music Theory Teacher

As a music major--with subsequent professional jazz, composition and songwriting experience--I feel confident to teach you music theory from any of a variety of angles, including: music reading basics (notation, rhythm and playing on piano), understanding chords/keys/scales (intermediate level) and writing/arranging/playing/improvising with this knowledge as your foundation (intermediate to advanced). I can help you prepare for exams (including Trinity, high school and college) as well.

"I play in a rock band that wanted to add some Sinatra type jazz songs to our repertoire. I was tasked to play bass with which I had very little experience. I decided to take some lessons with Gary to learn a little jazz theory and technique. He was a wonderful teacher. He focused in on exactly what I needed quickly and pointed me toward resources that I could use to improve. Despite my limited abilities, Gary was always patient and displayed good humor. When I needed him to write a bass line for me quickly so that I could take it on vacation, he made the time to make sure that I had what I needed. I enjoyed our lessons and recommend him highly. Gary is a teacher who truly cares about his students."

"Shon Morgan is absolutely the greatest most talented musician and music teacher I have ever had the privilege of learning from and playing music with. I am a drummer/guitarist/vocalist. We did some touring gigs together in our earlier years and he was already amazing back then. He sat down and taught me the circle of fifths off the top of his head in one conversation. I learned so much just playing along side him. So not only is he an amazing player, but he is also very well suited and experienced as a teacher. He is the most knowledgeable musically but patient and kind personally. He plays and teaches multiple instruments and vocals really well but he stands out tremendously on bass guitar! You can not go wrong having Shon Morgan as your teacher, period!"
