Private Music Theory Teacher

I've been a private music teacher for almost 8 years. I provide instrumental, vocal and music training for children and young adults ages 4-18.
Lessons in Music Theory includes primarily aural skills (covering sight singing and rhythm reading, dictation, and keyboard applications) and sometimes covering fundamentals, form analysis, and counterpoint. The main goal of this course is to develop fluency in seeing what is there on the musical page with clarity of understanding, as quickly and efficiently as possible.

I’ve been delighted with my lessons with Semyon from day one. I had studied classical piano as a child but took a hiatus of several decades, and was somewhat nervous about starting up again. Semyon has put me at ease, and is so enthusiastic and encouraging, it’s contagious. He also has a focus on technique that I was looking for (scales and Hanon so far, which I know I need!). He knows his stuff but doesn’t overwhelm me with too much too soon. As an adult student, I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice and highly recommend him.
Patricia
As a retiree who has recently returned to piano after a decades-long hiatus, I knew I’d need a teacher with experience teaching adults. Semyon is proving to be excellent. He is a skilled musician and teacher whose approach combines enjoyable piano pieces, exercises for agility and the fundamentals of scales and theory. He is patient and responsive to what I want to accomplish. I have learned in each lesson, seen improvement each week, and enjoy the diversity of assignments. In short, i’m having a grand time and highly recommend him.

Private Music Theory Teacher

I specialize in contemporary music theory and also have an intermediate knowledge of classical theory. Students will learn the basics such as roman numerals for chords, all the way to advanced concepts such as chord scales, modulation and chord substitution. Unless otherwise requested, all lessons will be taught using music notation.

Sam is great! He is attentive and great with my 9 yo. He is also flexible and easy to schedule. We plan to continue in-home guitar lessons with him for a foreseeable future.
Jaye
Terrible experience. I bought a package of 20 lessons for my 9yo nephew. He looked forward to it ever day from Xmas to the first week of January. Sam canceled the first lesson only 2hours prior its beginning. Then canceled the second lesson 10 minutes before he was supposed to be there because he “forgot” he had a “recording session today”. During the only lesson my nephew had, Sam didn’t show any ability to tailor a lesson to a child. Instead he gave him a pick, which dismayed me, and taught him a rock song we never heard of.
When I contacted the company they were very nice about it but I had to challenge their vetting process of teachers.
Dara
It was an excellent lesson! I really learned a lot from it. I was able to learn one song and start on a second on my first lesson only! Definitely recommend Sam to anyone thinking about picking up the guitar!

Online Music Theory Teacher

As a Classically trained vocalist, I have come to understand that the art of creating music is aided immensely by a strong understanding of music theory. My primary objective in teaching theory is to inspire students to become self-motivated musicians with the desire to want to know how and why music functions. Of course, theory is a means to an end, and whether writing or performing is the students goal, I am hear to help!

At the start of each semester I set clear and reachable course goals that instill in my students a curiosity for knowledge and experience. Together, we will work from the ground up, building a strong theoretical foundation. For younger students, I like to keep my students engaged with fun singing, drawing, and coloring activities that keep learning fun. Through worksheets, written examples, and recordings I will build an individualized lesson plan for each student that meets his or her needs.

Kasey is a wonderful, talented, and encouraging teacher! She knows her craft and provides excellent instruction in a warm and friendly manner. She is extremely patient yet challenges her students to do well to meet their full potential. She is a lovely and hard working person and I so enjoy taking lessons with her!

Kasey has been working with my daughter for 3 years now. I have watched my daughter gain confidence while making tremendous progress. Kasey is organized, caring and confident in her teaching. My daughter respects Kasey and enjoys going to her weekly lessons. I highly recommend Kasey as a voice teacher
Sheila
Kasey is a wonderful teacher. Before taking lessons with Kasey I had to stop singing for more than 5 years due to illness. She was amazing at safely bringing me back to vocal health. I am now able to sing light opera and folk songs even better than I used to. I am impressed with her level of knowledge and she really motivates me to work hard at my craft. She is truly the best teacher that I have ever had and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to be the best singer that they can be.

Barbara is an excellent teacher. She is very encouraging and positive. She makes the process fun by focusing on learning songs and allowing the student to pick the songs the student wants to learn. We focus on the basics--playing the right chords, singing on key and choosing a strumming pattern that fits the song. In the several months we have been working together I have found that I have improved dramatically in all three areas. Previously, on my own I had a great deal of trouble making progress. In addition to learning to play the guitar she has helped me tremendously with singing, which I never thought I could do at all. I have really enjoyed the experience.

"I play in a rock band that wanted to add some Sinatra type jazz songs to our repertoire. I was tasked to play bass with which I had very little experience. I decided to take some lessons with Gary to learn a little jazz theory and technique. He was a wonderful teacher. He focused in on exactly what I needed quickly and pointed me toward resources that I could use to improve. Despite my limited abilities, Gary was always patient and displayed good humor. When I needed him to write a bass line for me quickly so that I could take it on vacation, he made the time to make sure that I had what I needed. I enjoyed our lessons and recommend him highly. Gary is a teacher who truly cares about his students."

I started taking lessons with Jillian around when i started high school a couple years ago. I play french horn in school, and I'm considering studying music in college, so I definitely needed to know more music theory. I play guitar too, so we started studying songwriting, too, so that I can write some songs with my band. Jillian's so nice, and really smart, so she makes it really easy to learn! I really like classes with her."

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 …
