I teach all levels of music theory that help students succeed. They range from beginning note and music theory through theory needed to perform in symphony orchestras. I also have summer music programs.I teach the theory all musicians should learn if they wish to play with others.

The first thing I do before the first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email to introduce myself. We then Briefly discuss the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy, technical, and intellectual competencies the students would like to achieve by the end of a period through the questionnaire. This is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The customized syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during our lesson together. I incorporate technology all the time. I'm also inclusive driven because I believe everyone can learn no matter their capabilities or background, I also engage with my students by catering to their interests, and I embrace my dualities and share them with my students.

We explore the fundamentals of music theory including sight reading, ear training, rhythmic and melodic dictation. Through this work, students begin to understand the language of music and utilize it in practice with voice and/or piano

I have taught and tutored students in music theory, sight reading and ear training. You will learn various ways of looking at music. Forwards and backwards. You'll need patience and discipline. It's a process...trust the process.

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.

Beginner: I can help explain basic harmony that you will find in most pop tunes, this helps students to figure out songs as well as create opportunities for them to write their own material! Intermediate/advanced: learn how to apply theory to improvisation in sophisticated ways

Nils opened my mind to the musical potential I've always dreamed of. He is incredibly kind and was always positive no matter how much, or how little(!), practicing I did in between lessons. I feel so
