Private Music Theory Teacher

Theory and Composition were my primary areas of study in college, and I currently have a Songwriting Vlog with over 1,000 subscribers. I know how to apply these tools to the Pop/Rock/etc. landscape and I like to help my students also appreciate and use these tools. There are no rules in music, only trends, and it helps to know them.

Michelle feels it is incredibly important that all vocal/singing students have at least a basic understanding of music theory, reading music and ear training. This greatly assists them as they mature as a singer and as a performer, giving them the confidence, skills and knowledge to thrive in their musical endeavors. Michelle designs a specific curriculum for each student’s goals and needs so that these important music skills can be fun and accessible to anyone.

About Michelle

I believe that everyone can sing, it is just a matter of learning how to use your own unique instrument. From a very young age, as a performer, I was sharing my love of the arts with others. I grew up with an immense appreciation for the self-expression and creativity that result from all forms of

"Great teacher

Mike bares all the marks of a GREAT teacher. He knew what I wanted before I even realized that's where I truly was heading. Not only have I gained what I am seeking, but he has brought me further than I even dreamed for myself. There's no better feeling than playing the way you've dreamed. On top of being a great teacher, he not only is a kind soul, funny, and a good listener but he truly cares about your growth and what you want to learn. He is hands down an amazing teacher."

"Billy is the absolute best! Transcribing rhythms and ear training analysis have always been my weaknesses when it comes to music theory knowledge and finding the right exercises and techniques to improve has always been quite a difficult process to achieve. However, within just a few tutoring lessons from Billy, I started to build a better understanding of music theory as a whole. In every tutoring lesson, Billy was patient, knowledgeable and friendly which quickly benefited my musicality and strengthened my overall friendship and love with music. Thank you Billy!"

"Hi Ms Bethany, this is Sheenu(Gia & Dia's mom). I was just confused after the class coz I had signed them both for singing lessons not theory lessons. But as far as I know you gave a great class on the basics of theory, which was wonderful. Thank you so much for your excellent class. Please let me know if I need to do anything more to change it to singing lessons.
Thank you!!

Kind regards,

"Great teacher. He was my music theory tutor, and I was able to skip past two college theory courses within about a week of hour-long tutoring sessions.

From my experience, he works with what you have: he finds your strengths and helps you to learn based on how he believes you'll best receive new information or inspiration. He is able to communicate concepts in many different ways, and always makes sure you understand. He is not long-winded, but communicates the necessary information in a way that is straight-to-the-point, and does not waste time giving his students "busy work," but instead gives them exercises that are directly or indirectly helpful every time. He is a patient teacher, and does not make you feel like you will be left behind. He passionate about teaching and his students, and he does a great job at teaching."

"Working with Emily at the Ithaca College Summer Music Academy this past summer showed me her excellent teaching, leadership, and musicianship. I was able to attend multiple concerts in which Emily performed incredible music on a variety of wind instruments, as well as learn about the music theory class she was teaching on pop music. In the class she analyzed the music of artists such as Rihanna, Sia, and Lady Gaga, giving value to all types of music and relating to the high school students with music they enjoy. Emily is an inspiring musician, teacher, and friend who I would trust in any situation."

But he did sit with me and show me how to do it myself and I was happy I learned something. It wasn't great but if I had the desire to be an arranger then I would definitely study more with Jeremy."
