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.

About Paul

I am a musician who has played in many bands. My primary instrument is piano and voice. I also play rhythm guitar. My current group is a "Who" tribute band, performing a complete history of the rock group, The Who. Please check out our website magicbustour.com I play by ear but also read music.

I've had 6 lessons with Paul so far and I could not be happier with my level of improvement, my understanding of piano fundamentals, and the enjoyment I get being in the lesson. Paul is an intelligent and passionate musician, and does an amazing job of contouring his lesson to the skill of his student. I couldn't recommend him more, especially for anyone who wants to rock out on the piano like I do.

I’m so glad to be taking lessons with Paul. He’s patient and creative in helping you find the notes and sing on key. He’s really good at challenging you just enough!

Private Music Theory Teacher

Music Theory is the backbone of every western style of music that exists today. It's integral to understanding music in a critical and coherent way. Students who wish to study Music Theory will be amazed at how their favorite songs use the same techniques as Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven.

In our music theory lessons, we'll dive into the heart of what makes music, music. Then we'll apply those concepts to real pieces, and learn how we can apply to our instrument and original music.

***Please contact me with "Ask a Question" prior to signing up for lessons! I will not accept students without a 72 hour window for admin.***

Music theory is a joy to teach! Let me guide you. Within the first few lessons, you'll know terminology and basics such as rhythm and note reading, and as time goes on you'll be able to understand chords, structure and more. I typically use method books combined with traditional repertoire.

I am about retired and decided to take piano lesson as a hobby last year. I knew nothing about playing piano and music theory. I was lucky to find Doniell as my piano teacher. She is very patient with me for not knowing anything and explains everything I need to know for that day’s lesson. She is also very flexible to work with me with my work and trip schedules. I have been with her for one year and take half hour lesson each week except when I was out of town, now I am able to play many songs and very happy with my good progress. I definitely recommended her to anyone who is interested in learning piano lessons. You will get satisfactions.

It was Auroras first lesson,she absolutely loved it
Tylonda
Our daughter is taking lessons with Doniell and after every lesson is thrilled to share her experiences. Doniell has been exceedingly accomodating of our schedule, making it absolutely pleasant to work with her. We are a homeschool family and she offered time outside of evening hours. We had several illnesses and issues with travel during the snow this past winter and she has always been understanding and patient with rescheduling. Our daughter is very enthusiastic about piano and many things in life, we are thankful we have Doniell to guide her as she continues to develop a passion for music.

To know how to play the piano is important; however, to know the why of piano playing will increase your knowledge & playing ability.

About Ruthy

I have been playing the piano for over twenty years. I began at the early age of seven years old. Because piano has played such a vital role in my life, I believe it is a responsibility of mine to pass on such a delightful gift of piano playing to those who would like to make it a part of their life

Ruthy has been a great instructor. I started with her knowing very little about the piano. I have been working with her once a week and am seeing great improvement. I am learning notes, chords, and understand music. She makes learning fun and helps you to achieve playing songs that you really like and enjoy.

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 …
