While studying for my Doctorate of Musical Arts I was a graduate Assistant teaching Music Theory and Ear-training.
From note reading through writing a symphonic score or a movie soundtrack.
I have a strong background in music theory. My doctoral dissertation was analytical in content. I love music theory - it is like solving puzzles! If you want to learn about theory in an exciting and fun way, I would love to help you!
Play an instrument but lacking a little on the theory side? I'll help clear up the musical mysteries for you! All music really shares the same underlying principles, and understanding them can be the key to your success as a musician or songwriter.
Learning music theory through games can be a lot of fun and will give the student much needed foundation for playing any musical instrument.
Intervals, Chord/Scale relationships, Circle of Fifths, advanced musical form.
Theory is essential if you want to understand what you're doing! I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 19. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons. I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!
My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!
