Private Music Theory Teacher

Hello! If you would like to learn how to read music, understand chords, understand scales, and understand how to compose music, I can help! I love music theory, and often incorporate it into my lessons on other subjects. Reach out to me with what you want to learn, I can help! I took music theory 1-3 in college, and in high school took music theory 1, 2, and AP. I can teach you how to play by ear, how to transcribe music, how to identify intervals by ear, how to write out music properly, and more.

About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica If you're looking for an enthusiastic teacher who loves her students (and may be a little bit nerdy), look no further! I teach voice, piano, ukulele, and steel drums. Pasta, my dogs, and the color green are all the greatest things in life. Music is a personal journey

Jessica is an amazing teacher! A few months ago I was having trouble learning the ukulele and I decided to start lessons with her. It was a great decision because ever since then I have learned way more than I could on YouTube! She is everything you want in a teacher, so helpful, supportive, fun, easy going, and kind. She has brought me so much further as a player and now I can write songs, have learned 15 of my favorite songs, am learning how to combine my instrument with others on my computer, and understand music so much more than ever. Thank you Jessica:)

Music theory can be extremely intimidating, but it doesn't have to be! We'll take the time to learn how melodies are constructed, why certain scales sound great over a chord change and other don't, and countless other subjects that will take your musical abilities to a whole new level you didn't think possible.

About Jonah

Learning to play the guitar is one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have. Whether this is your first time picking up the guitar or you've been playing for years, I'll make sure your lessons are structured and paced in a way that's specifically catered to your goals. I've worked with

I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!

Johah is very patient and flexible. He identifies and is willing to work on techniques, such as barre chords, in a way that finally helps me to stop the buzzing! I am looking forward to working with him.

My 15 year old son has been taking virtual guitar lessons with Jonah and has loved it. Jonah is a great teacher who really gets on my son’s level and connects. It’s a fun thing for him to do during this strange year.

I’ve had my ukulele for over two years, and have done nothing with it. Decided the other day it was time, did a google search and found Alexandra on TakeLessons! I have zero music background but she’s made these lessons SOO simple and effective. I have a long ways to go, yet I leave each lesson with a feeling of accomplishment! Wasn’t expecting this to go so well, 110% satisfied. Thanks Alexander :)

I absolutely LOVE music theory. To me, theory is so vital to a well-rounded musical education. My teaching style totally depends upon what each particular student needs.

About Becca

I am a friendly, outgoing, and passionate music teacher! I play the harp and piano and absolutely love to spread the joy of music. I started playing the harp because my grandmother was a harpist and I thought it was the most beautiful instrument. After all these years, I still love the amazing sound

We hired Brian to work with our barely 3 year old to play the drums we got him for his birthday. He loves it! We don’t have any grand aspirations for him, but he likes to bang around and we wanted to give him some direction to see if he latched on to it. Our main objective is that he has fun. Brian is GREAT with him and he looks forward to it every week. 10/10!

Just had my first lesson with him, and he was amazing! He's relatable and puts things through a perspective that you wouldn't have ever thought of. 10/10 recommend him, and if I could give more than five stars I would. And I plan on doing lessons with him all throughout high school.
