This is a great class for any aspiring musician, or any student,looking to gain some basic understanding of music. Hopefully, the student will gain some appreciation of music as well. The concrete foundations of music, rhythm, melody and harmony will all be discussed in detail. I've been teaching this class for about ten years and found it helps musicians with there own performance.

Rodrigo is an excellent instructor! He explains everything thoroughly and makes the accordion less intimidating to play.
Barbara Judd
I have been taking accordion lessons from Rodrigo for about 6 months. I had never been successful playing a couple of instruments from long ago. I have now made great progress from Rodrigo's instructions. He helps me understand music theory, reading music, simplifying music, and how to charge my musical working memory. I have long been a collector of music. This is the first time I've felt progress and success.

Great first lesson with Steve. Really helps you learn not only the theory of singing, but also how to work with the voice you have and learn the songs you love. Looking forward to future lessons.
Dennis W.
Super-helpful. Professional, knowledgeable, zeroes in on what you need to develop and gives you good advice on how to develop it.
Jacqi
My 10 year old beginner has been taking lessons from Mr. Ettling for a couple of months. We are always amazed at the progress he makes each week. Mr. Ettling great at assessing where a child's skills are, and how much more progress to ask for between lessons. He listens well to my son's interests also. We are very happy!

I was lucky enough to get a first-hand experience of both Western-American approach to the music theory and also Russian approach. In my teaching I try to combine both. My approach grows from my general dissatisfaction with how music theory is mainly taught in schools - useless rules, couple dull examples and that's it. I'm trying to explain to my students why the music evolved the way it did and why it is important.

When students request music theory lessons with me we first make a plan for what the student wants to learn about. Sometimes the basic understanding of how music works is enough but some people want to dive deeper than that and nothing makes me happier than that!

I'll be happy to develop an individual plan with you and help you navigate in this quite complicated world of harmony, counterpoint and musical for.

Simon is a brilliant teacher who was able to break down tough concepts into sets of comprehensible steps. Highly recommend taking lessons with him!

Moe
When Simon asked me to write a review for him I was very happy to do so. I had the chance to work with Simon several years ago--I'm self taught and studying Jazz as a hobby. I needed some help with theory, and a friend of mine who loves his playing mentioned that he offers online theory lessons. I was really nervous to start studying with such a serious pianist, plus he's mostly a classical musician, but it turned out to be one of the best choices I made for my learning (alongside getting my new piano!) I took about a year of regular lessons and I left each one feeling more confident. Simon's a really cool guy too and keeps things fun! So glad he's finally advertising more, this guy is just an amazing teacher and you won't regret learning from him!!

"Music has never come easy me. Up until Zack, I had never found a teacher that helped me get it. When he teaches he takes his time and makes sure you’re getting it. Not only that but he makes sure you have fun! Whenever he’s teaching I can’t help but have fun. He’s always cracking jokes and making you feel comfortable. I love music lessons with him. I’m so glad he’s a teacher and I hope he helps many more kids like me to become better musicians."

Tim is an excellent, patient and caring instructor. I am a brand new guitar owner from a rural area in North Dakota. I was looking for a guitar teacher but all required a 30-60 minute drive.
