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

I've been studying music theory for six years, and I've been a music theory tutor for three years. I currently study music theory pedagogy at the Peabody Institute, and I am a graduate assistant for the music theory department.
Music theory is a mathematical approach to music, and can successfully be taught to every type of learner. I have experience teaching student just beginning, studying musical form, counterpoint, atonality, and ear training. Music theory can be abstract, but it improves the understanding and appreciation of music to a listener, composer, and performer.

About Madeline

I love introducing students to new repertoire, showing them a different way of looking at concepts, and helping students realize how smart and talented they are. I want my students to fee

I initially chose Madeline because of her academic and pedagogical background and have been very happy with my choice. I've continued with my biweekly lessons because she has made lessons fun, fruitful, and is, simply, a great teacher.

Starting as a 29 year old guy working and studying full time, I was hesitant on many fronts to start lessons. That being said, Madeline's teaching style is such that I never felt bad about occasionally not having time to practice but always felt motivated to do so because she genuinely seems happy for me when I do and because of that I've seen progress.

Lessons are always tailored to my specific needs and she lets me work on music which I am excited to. Not only is she adept at musical pedagogy, but did a great job at the interpersonal level of making me feel at ease during my initial lessons to the point which I don't feel angst singing and being heard by other people--something which was difficult for my shy self.

Overall it has been a great experience that I'm very happy with and would sincerely recommend.
Kate
I have loved my lessons with Madeline and I initially met with her once every other week. I enjoyed the lessons so much, and felt I was making such progress toward my goal of singing in a choir, that I moved to meeting on a weekly basis. I received Madeline’s name from our choir director and I am so happy to be working with her!
Luke
Always enjoy voice lessons with Madeline! She works with you to help you learn at your own pace and is genuinely interested in what inspires you musically.

When lessons shifted from in-person to online due to COVID restrictions, Madeline helped to make the transition easy.

I may be the teacher that makes this subject finally accessible to you! I taught for over 10 years at the College level, and created the first classes for SFJAZZ's Digital Lab, where I also taught for 4 years.

I have been teaching privately now for over 20 years, and I love doing this work. Music Theory is one of my favorite subjects, I look forward to working with you!

I've been taking lessons with David for more than 2 years, he's amazing... he's very knowledgeable, patient, knows how to explain difficult concepts and can adapt to a broad range of topics, covering different areas that I'm interested on, including music theory, songwriting, guitar and bass, and music production.

David is both a professional musician and an experienced instructor, and you can tell the difference that makes in every class.

We started with at-home classes, but switched to online during the pandemic and that's working pretty good for me to.

I'd recommend David to anyone looking to learn a new instrument, get better at it or expand their music knowledge in general.
George McKale
Simply put, David is a great teacher. His lessons incorporated the perfect blend of theory and patience while opening up new horizons on the fret board. His style of teaching is very flexible so that one can hone in on what excites them. For me, that was jazz and David made a huge difference in my creativity.
Selina
David did a wonderful job, teaching me bass via Zoom with a lot of focus on what I wanted to do. Even though my interests ranged from technical to classical to theoretical to funk, he always had something he could show me and proved to have great knowledge of the instrument as well as of music theory and history. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have taken music theory at mercer county college and I have to say that I learned more from Jim than I did in a whole semester. I highly recommend him."

I'm taking music theory and composition lessons from Daniel to supplement what I already know from composing by ear. He's an excellent teacher, very enthusiastic about teaching the material, and extremely knowledgable. I feel like I've learned a ton so far and we're not even close to done yet! Highly recommended."

"I was very hesitant to learn about music theory in general, as I have been led to believe it is a boring and monotonous field to learn about. Avenira changed all that negative thought about music for me after just a few short lessons! I listen to music differently now and am always noting intricacies in compositions/songs that I never had noticed before, and even have gone as far to write a few on my own songs. I highly recommend Avenira for any music-related teaching; she is extremely knowledgeable and very obviously loves what she is doing.

Can't wait to learn more from her in the future!!"
