Private Music Theory Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

I had to switch the lesson to in-home roughly 3 hours before the scheduled lesson. David was great and accommodating. He gave me a crash course on scales, which I didn't know anything about, and explained them so that I actually started to understand.
Samantha Gordon
My first lesson with David was excellent! He is very patient and knowledgeable. I now have extremely high expectations for learning to play the guitar. I highly recommend him. He gave me a thorough explanation about how guitars are made made, the parts, we tuned the guitar and I am ready to groove!

We will make sure each student understands the foundation, then build from there. Some students require different approaches to learning, and I work with the students' strengths to help them build their knowledge.

Using your primary instrument, we will explore the theoretical foundations of music for that instrument, while drawing basic parallels to other instruments.

Online Music Theory Teacher

I love teaching theory! People tend to have problems with theory, and my favorite part is simplifying the most complex ideas and making them understand it. There is no feeling more satisfying than that.

I teach all sorts of theory. Whether it's basic theory, song writing, harmony, or counterpoint, it's one of my favorite subjects to teach

About Mesrop

I am a music lover. I love anything and everything that is music. It has been one of the most consistent things in my life since I was a child, and there's nothing that makes me happier than making that a reality for someone else. I've spent a lot of time studying with different musicians, such

Jocelyn
I am a classically trained violinist and singer songwriter who is looking to improve my piano skills. In our lesson I felt like I was able to get the type of thorough instruction I was looking for. We covered position, technical exercises, and classical pieces that I should be proficient in. It was apparent that Mesrop has a very deep understanding of this instrument and can approach it from the technical perspective I was looking for. I’m also happy that I can bring in songs from my songwriter project and get a composition perspective on those when I need it. It’s a very good balance for me as a performer and a songwriter. It’s important to find a teacher who you genuinely like, and Mesrop’s kind personality and professionalism are a great fit for me.
Daniel
I have been wanting to learn piano for some time, and was recommended to Mesrop by a friend. He has been very patient with my pace of learning, which isn't always the fastest, and introduced concepts in a really logical and digestible way. Great guy and teacher, highly recommend!
Arsen
I've always enjoyed playing guitar and bass, but the added element of piano was something that seemed so daunting I convinced myself to let it go. Mesrop was able to break it down so simply for me from the start, and I'm extremely thankful for his patience and focus throughout lessons. Along the way, I picked up more on theory and am now more comfortably able to transcribe as well. I think he's a tremendous musician but an equally excellent teacher.

"As a teacher, I am whole heartedly committed to nurturing the development of students as they continue with the journey of playing music, and evolve into beautiful musicians. Achieving this requires a present awareness of my students and the music they are drawn to, while also presenting them with music and knowledge from various genres, styles, and times, to broaden their perception of the world we come from and thrive in.  My intention is to provide each individual with the necessary tools to play music passionately, beautifully, and with understanding. My goals as a music educator are to help students experience the joy of learning and playing music while becoming a well-rounded and well-versed musician.

Sophia is a great teacher and she tailors lessons based on skill level and what client wants to focus on along with the basic of piano playing.
William W.
Sophia is absolutely the best piano teacher ever! She's punctual, kind, and patient. She genuinely cares that I understand not just how to play the piano, but also the theoretical apparatus behind the music that I'm learning to play. I will take lessons from her until I'm taking a dirt nap.
Doug R.
As an adult trying to get back into playing piano it was hard for me to find the right fit with a piano teacher. Sophia displays a perfect balance of encouragement, intelligence, and professionalism in our lessons. Her hours are flexible, and she has so much to offer and talk about with whatever is I want to learn. Thank you Sophia!

"I had never written music before IN MY LIFE! And I was so nervous! But Taylor was so AMAZING!! She explained the basics of music theory and harmony in a way that was easy for me to understand! And with her help, I was able to write some beautiful piano solos!! She also helped me figure out how to record them so I could record them with my friends and post my solos online. They are so good!!! :D And I am so proud of myself!!!! I highly recommend Taylor!! She was so helpful and nice and sooooo funny!! I'm so glad I got to work with her and I will definitely come back again! Thanks TayTay!!!!!"

He was friendly and super knowledgeable and I felt like it all clicked all of a sudden. I was able to learn easily online from my home in Portland. I keep taking lessons with him because I keep learning great tips about performance and theory. He's also really funny. Kellen's awesome!"

"As Jim states on his bio, he teaches from age 8 and up. I'm one of his "up" students who's been playing guitar for a few years, but never took time to learn theory because I thought it was too confusing or difficult to learn. After being stuck in a rut for the past 30 years, I finally realized that I could be a guitar player, instead of just playing guitar, by understanding WHY I'm playing what I playing. I planned to take a few lessons to see how it would go. That was 4 months ago. Now when I pick up my guitar, I have a plan and am excited to learn more each week. Jim's approach to teaching theory makes it clear for anyone of any age or expertise. If you're young and want to learn the right way, Jim will teach you the right way. For us older folks, I found out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks... I highly recommend Jimmy!"

"I am extremely happy with my first five lessons. I feel that my instruction is individualized well to my short term goals, which is to develop a solid theoretical foundation that enables me to understand compositional approaches and methodologies and prepare me to create my own compositions and arrangements. Currently the format of our lesson is to analyze/discuss a piece in detail with a compositional or arrangement exercise to reinforce the main techniques of the piece. (which is reviewed at the subsequent lesson). The exchange of ideas (as well as the exercises) have resulted in me learning something fun and interesting every single lesson. I highly recommend Jaxon as a music theory instructor."
