I can help you to better understand music theory through explanations that make sense to you. Everything you want to know will be introduced to you at your own pace even if you don't have a clear idea of what theory concepts you'd like to know. I have taken quite a few theory classes including the more advanced subjects like form and analysis and counterpoint, even some composition and arrangement independent studies. Theory can seem esoteric to some and I myself even thought so at first, but through practice and experience I have learned to appreciate it. Let's learn in a way that works for you!

Private Music Theory Teacher

I was lucky enough to get a first-hand experience of both Western-American approach to the music theory and also Russian approach. In my teaching I try to combine both. My approach grows from my general dissatisfaction with how music theory is mainly taught in schools - useless rules, couple dull examples and that's it. I'm trying to explain to my students why the music evolved the way it did and why it is important.

When students request music theory lessons with me we first make a plan for what the student wants to learn about. Sometimes the basic understanding of how music works is enough but some people want to dive deeper than that and nothing makes me happier than that!

I'll be happy to develop an individual plan with you and help you navigate in this quite complicated world of harmony, counterpoint and musical for.

Moe
When Simon asked me to write a review for him I was very happy to do so. I had the chance to work with Simon several years ago--I'm self taught and studying Jazz as a hobby. I needed some help with theory, and a friend of mine who loves his playing mentioned that he offers online theory lessons. I was really nervous to start studying with such a serious pianist, plus he's mostly a classical musician, but it turned out to be one of the best choices I made for my learning (alongside getting my new piano!) I took about a year of regular lessons and I left each one feeling more confident. Simon's a really cool guy too and keeps things fun! So glad he's finally advertising more, this guy is just an amazing teacher and you won't regret learning from him!!

If college taught me anything it's that there's no one right way to look at music or learn music theory. The trick for me was having a hunger for the knowledge. That being said, learning music theory begins with understanding why you are learning it. By removing obstacles and getting you out of your own way you may just find that music theory is not about rules and conventions but the quest to understand music, what works for you, what doesn't and from there you can apply it to whatever higher purpose you are learning for. Music theory is not just a written language, it's a way to convey and understand musical ideas so that music can happen.

About Chris

I took an interest in music probably around 6 years old and I started out with choirs and ukelele. After a year of lessons I switched to guitar. In Jr. High I started to teach myself piano and took lessons throughout high school. I was fortunate enough to find about a dozen used instruments for

Kris is great .. always positive and upbeat. Clearly is masterful at understanding music theory and its applications to the piano. Working at a rapid pace and after just 3 lessons, I feel like I understand the piano. I would say that my understanding of some music theory (as a guitarist) helps me keep up with Kris, but he is a great listener and pauses when necessary.
Nicole
Amazing instructor. I've come so far from working with him.
Lino
9 months in taking lessons from Chris and it has been a great experience so far. Not only am I learning how to play the piano, but I'm also learning music theory. Not just how to play certain notes and chords but why. Highly recommended.

A good understanding of music theory will allow you to more efficiently recognize your strengths and limitations. It cultivates the ability to hear music more intelligently and teach yourself several instruments. People that can pick up and play any instrument with minimal effort, likely have a very good foundation in music theory. Music theory also cultivates the ability for the ear to recognize context and patterns in music you already know. It is one of my greatest passions and I love to share it with anyone who is interested :)

This was my 14 y/o and my very first lesson. We learned chords, strum patterns, and melody. Super fun evening! Julian even gave my 12 y/o a lesson on his drum set while we practiced on our guitars. Now the family is hooked! Excited for our lesson next week.
David
Julian has spent lots and lots of fun time with his nephews and nieces (age 13-2), playing music with and teaching--ukulele, piano, guitar and drums over the last few years, and as a result they all have some great skills, confidence, and excitement about music. He's kind and very tuned in to where his students are.
I'm his Dad so I've seen how rewarding it can be for his students. He's also given me a basic set of skills on the guitar. It goes without saying, I recommend him highly!!

"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."

Mike bares all the marks of a GREAT teacher. He knew what I wanted before I even realized that's where I truly was heading. Not only have I gained what I am seeking, but he has brought me further than I even dreamed for myself. There's no better feeling than playing the way you've dreamed. On top of being a great teacher, he not only is a kind soul, funny, and a good listener but he truly cares about your growth and what you want to learn. He is hands down an amazing teacher."

"Hi Everyone,
I’d like to tell all about what a wonderful experience I’m having with Tamari as my piano teacher.
First about me. I’m a 70 year old male with virtually no hands-on music experience or knowledge (other than listening). My parents forced me to take piano music lessons 60+ years ago which I totally resisted. Playing piano was a sissy thing and after a few months they gave up.
For the past 50 years I regretted my youthful error. So when I had the chance to take a piano/keyboard class from Tamari, through OLLI at Uconn I jumped at the chance.
Tamari started the first class totally prepared. Not only did she have startup handouts geared to beginner level students. She also came with extension cords and power outlet strips so all could set up comfortably. Right away we (9) were playing notes and learning. Tamari gave us terrific learning tips (beyond Every Good Boy Does Fine) to make grasping lessons much easier.
Sadly, the Virus hit, and self-isolation became the norm. So Tamari set up her classes through the ZOOM video conferencing software. Wonderfully, a fun learning experience.
One example from yesterday. Tamari helped me learn that just playing the notes , G A G C B by pecking at the keys isn’t music. There’s a certain rhythm needed to make the sound correct and enjoyable. And after, patiently, staying with me, turn after turn, I got it right. Bravo to her and me.
Let me wrap this up by saying, I couldn’t be happier or more satisfied with Tamari as my Piano teacher.
Ralph A Famiglietti."
