Private Music Theory Teacher

I am an experienced theory and keyboard tutor. I have taught and tutored Theory 1-3 at New England Conservatory, which included part writing, ear training, analysis, figured bass, progressions, and solfege.

I am passionate about the subject and how it relates to all the music we like to listen to and play. Whether you are trying to pass your theory class in school or university, or are interested in augmenting your theory understanding in any context, you have come to the right place!!

I am excited to explore the realm of theory with you, and we can even learn how to improvise and how to play by ear if that interests you.

Let me know what YOU want out of our work together, and lets make it happen!!

While we are at it, we could work in other subjects or musical instruments! Check out my page for more subjects.

Catherine is very responsible and extremely helpful for my music theory study. She set up additional office hours to help me understand the knowledge and pass the advanced tonal practice course. Her introduction was very clear and she delivered it with great patience. She was also very thoughtful to be flexible to fit my schedule. I really appreciate her help, and would highly recommend her.

Janet really put me at ease as I was a bit nervous. She identified areas where I was reasonably strong and areas where we should strive for improvement, and (what seemed to me) innovative ways to achieve improvement. I'm really looking forward to my next lesson!
Connor
My son loved his 1st lesson, and is looking forward to more.
Chrissy Petersen
Janet loves music, loves teaching, and loves people. You will not find a more dedicated and compassionate teacher of the arts. In the 14 years that I have known Janet, music, teaching, and family has been her priority. Her skills continuously grow as she has explored music in many different settings such as early childhood music, piano accompaniment, and choir singing.

Both my daughters (ages 6 and 8) are taking piano lessons with Kristin. She is a great teacher: patient, encouraging, listens to the kids, and makes sure they enjoy the lessons. We hope to have lessons with her for the long run and highly recommend her for a positive music experience.

About Larry

First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvan

Larry came well prepared and was very informative. I’ve never played the guitar before so Larry had to start from ground zero. At the end of the lesson I felt I had learned not just about playing the guitar but music in general. It was a great start!
Austin
very informative and mellow....starting with basics and slowly getting to know the speed I need to grasp it! Happy to have Larry in our home, can't wait for next lesson.

I enjoy helping students understand the nuts and bolts of music, whether you're interested in composition, improvisation, or just basic knowledge.

About Laura

Very professional and innovative techniques that guarantee success!
Welcker
Laura has been a great teacher for my 6 year-old daughter (starting taking lessons when she was 5). She is endlessly patient and has a perfect balance of fun and instruction in all her lessons. She helped us every step of the way--picking out the right rental instrument, finding extra workbooks that would be fun, coming up with ways to make practicing at home enticing. Laura is made to be a fiddle teacher--she has a obvious passion both for the music and sharing it with her students. My daughter left every lesson with Laura beaming with pride. I'd recommend anyone searching for a teacher to go with Laura!

"Six words describe Cindy. I WISH I DISCOVERED HER SOONER! She is exactly what I was looking for in a music theory teacher for my son. The chemistry between them is fantastic. She customizes the lesson to my son's needs. I have seen a major difference in a short period of time, with his sight reading, playing by ear, playing scales and chords. I would definitely recommend her and will be taking lessons as long as she is teaching."

I had the privilege to work with Melissa when I was a student at Cornish College of the Arts. Melissa was always so dedicated and encouraging towards me and my musical goals. If I had a question she would be right there to help me solve it. Melissa's strongest suit in my opinion is her ability to compose music. She is extremely patient, passionate and detailed in her work. Thanks Melissa for everything!"
