I have plenty of experience with music theory and music composition. I use examples from popular songs and apply that to the students own songs and ideas. For guitar, I use practical guitar theory to help get intermediate and advanced students to the next level.
Theory is a part of all lessons, but especially in piano lessons. I include theory as needed in vocal lessons.
I can help you with your knowledge of music theory and composition.
Music theory is absolutely necessary to understand no matter what instrument you're playing. If you understand how music works as a whole, you'll be able to pick up any instrument and master it quicker. People can be kind of intimidated by music theory (I know I was at first), but it's a lot easier than most realize!
I have always thought of music theory as a tool for thinking about musical ideas and then communicating them effectively. It is broad field because there are so many different ways music can be. It's always best to know the right theoretical tool for the music at hand.
I have taught music theory both privately and in a classroom setting. In private lessons, I focus on my student's personal goals. Some students come to me seeking a firm grounding in traditional tonal theory. Often, my students are preparing for college entrance exams. Others are seeking to expand their knowledge and enrich their listening or performing experiences. As a composer myself, I live and work in this topic, whether I am writing my own music or discussing the music of others.

"I've been taking lessons with Brett for over a year now and it's been a fantastic experience. My journey started, however, long before our first me
Over two years ago I decided it was time to up my game and increase my understanding of music theory and music in general. In order to accomplish this I felt I needed a teacher, but not just any teacher. I had a few strict requirements in mind. First, I wanted someone who had a degree in music. Brett's a graduate of Berklee College of Music. Check. As a bass player I wanted a guitarist for a teacher. To me, being able to ask questions and talk to someone who understands the interaction between bass and guitar is key. Brett's a pro guitarist and an accomplished musician. Check again. I also wanted someone who understood the music I listened to and played and was also versed in other styles of music. Again, check.
Brett met and surpassed everything I wanted in a teacher. And to top if off, he's one cool dude. My only regret is not starting sooner.
