I would be more than willing to assist my prospective students with their various musical endeavors in Music Theory/ Musicianship. Through the diligent preliminary talk we will discuss various aspects of interest that my students have developed in relation to music, so we could plan and design our future lessons according to an initial discussion. My job and responsibility will be to make an intelligent assessment of my students' natural abilities for the given subject of study, to create vigorous learning atmosphere during our meetings, and to give my students professional instructions to the best of my humble abilities, for the benefits of their musical , aesthetic, and personal development. I will encourage my students to learn as much as they can, at the given moment, but I will not ever attempt to exceed people's natural capabilities. Participation in Music with love and fun should be as rewarding and valuable to the music amateur, as professional performing career (with its ...

Vasiliy is great! He's an amazing teacher, I know this because teachers usually get frustrated with me very quickly(I'm a slow processor and have some learning difficulties), but Vasiliy explained things in a way I could understand and never expressed anything but positivity and patience when I did get a bit confused or took extra time to understand something.
Overall, he's a really nice guy with a patient, calm, yet enthusiastic disposition, who is clearly very experienced in music and life in general. I'm an extremely nervous person and it usually takes me a long time to relax around a new person, but he's really chill and I felt pretty comfortable within a few minutes of talking.

I went into my first lesson frankly pretty terrified, and with almost no direction, and I left feeling uplifted with a clear path for pursuing music. The lesson exceeded my expectations by far, I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been learning music theory since
the mid-70s. I became an assistant to composer and author of "The Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization" copyrighted by George Russell. I also leaned music theory traditionally. Students can learn all definable chord types, intervals and rhythms etc. I am a composer, guitarist and percussionist, who has the ability to share this information with my students !

Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!

Chase and I worked together doing online lessons for guitar for a number of months. Chase is an incredible instructor. He helped me understand how to analyze and replicate my music tastes in a super effective way. His teachings on improvisation definitely brought out the best in my playing. I would highly recommend learning from Chase, whether you are a beginner or expert.
Nichole Coyne
Chase and I did not work together long because of other commitments. However, in the short time we did work together I learned a lot. Chase is easy going, highly skilled, very patient, and his teaching style is such that it fosters student confidence. I was really nervous at first, because I wasn't sure what to expect. Chase quickly made me feel at ease during the lesson. We only had half hour lessons, but that was definitely enough time to learn new materiel and make progress. I highly recommend him for guitar lessons.

My son is 7 and really seems to like Chase. He came well prepared and finally someone has started to teach him some rock songs .

I love working with Aria! She is an excellent teacher. She worked with me on classical repertoire in Italian, German, French and English. Sbe helped me prepare for performances, scholarship competitions, program auditions, and my college auditions. She is knowledgable, patient, understanding and always willing to find time to help. She's great!
Jamie
Dr Thome is an excellent teacher. She not only loves music, but understands it. She is quite talented at sharing that knowledge with her students, helping them to grow musically. She is great with scheduling--accommodating extra lessons as necessary and able. Her work with my daughter is stellar. Aria helped her prepare for multiple auditions, performances and her conservatory auditions. I highly recommend her.
Angela
Aria is a joy, a light, and an overall wonderful human being. She is knowledgeable and makes singing a wonderful experience. She helped me prepare for my St. Louis Muny audition and I could tell that my technique and overall confidence improved. I was very pleased with my audition (that’s big for someone who is very self-critical). I also had the pleasure of learning various choral arrangements and catholic hymns and performed them with Aria as my accompanist for weddings. It was a wonderful experience.

I decided to start learning piano as a new hobby and am very happy I found Jack. He has been very patient with me and is going at just the right pace. I cannot say enough good things. He is also great with my grandkids!

Jack is THE BEST. He is always super patient and kind and I am amazed by all of the awesome techniques and tips he shares to help me. I love taking lessons with Jack and I am really excited about my own progress under his guidance.
Chris
Jack is fantastic with working at YOUR pace. I had played piano years ago and wanted to get back into it. Jack was able to adapt exercises on the spot when he could see i was breezing through some things but struggling in other areas. Jack is also a very kind and understanding person - he was accommodating to my financial situation even before COVID. I would recommend Jack to anyone looking to start or brush up on piano.

"AMAZING!

I met Dave in my music theory class at Ex'pression college. He's the reason why I'm making music today. I went from not knowing a thing about music theory or a piano to creating chord progressions, understanding modes, intervals, modal interchange, and how to read sheet music. He's extremely patient, professional, and easy to get along with. His passion for music and teaching is infectious, I highly recommend!!!"

"The lessons (piano & music theory) I learned from Buzz Amato was the sole reason I got signed to a label & was able to produce 2 Billboard charted singles (which he co-produced with me). I now tour the world djing and produce with talented artists that come to me based off my musical knowledge, that I received from Buzz. I can honestly say NONE of this would happen without the musical instruction of Buzz. Thank you Buzz!"

"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."

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …

Can You Pass This Basic Music Theory Quiz? Test Your Knowledge!

A knowledge of music theory is absolutely indispensable to musicians. For beginners, it can seem intimidating, but experienced musicians will attest that theory is well worth the effort needed to master it. While you can certainly acquire proficiency on an instrument without a knowledge of theory, you’ll miss out on the depth of understanding that it provides. Music theory is also extremely useful for musicians. Think of music theory as your tool box. It enables you to analyze, tra …
