Blake really enjoyed it & Robert was patient & very informative.

Although I'm a fairly new learner, I chose Robert as a teacher because he teaches everything from beginner to advanced. I'm glad I did -- his depth of knowledge is clear and he understands my questions quickly and can answer from different angles to make sure I understand. After just two lessons I feel like I've gained a lot already and am excited to continue learning.
Michael
Robert is a super nice guy, great teacher, and extremely knowledgeable about the guitar.

Mark is awesome. He has a uniquely designed and patented method to reach reading music quickly. My daughter learned to read all the violin notes with rapidity in two months. Today he had her play a new piece she never saw before by reading the music. The smile on her face when she realized what she had accomplished was priceless.

Music theory can be very very interesting, or very very boring. I enjoy the “interesting” version, which means that we’ll be learning music theory that you want to focus on to achieve your musical goals. Need to start or improve your songwriting skills? No problem. Want to compose a beautiful instrumental piece for a film or game? No problem. Need to cram for an upcoming college semester? I’m here to help.

My point here is that the CONTEXT is super important when learning music theory; otherwise, it’ll feel like just a bunch of rules. Let’s keep it fun and interesting instead, shall we?

About Daniel

Hi there! I am a professional jazz, pop, and folk vocalist, pianist, and songwriter with a bachelor's degree in Jazz Voice from the University of North Texas. I firmly believe that learning more about music should be a fun, nurturing, and open-minded process (this isn't Whiplash, folks). No musician is exactly alike, so I work hard to create custom and unique curriculum for each of my students to ensure that they love the music and skills that they are working on!

My teaching incorporates many elements including healthy vocal technique, songwriting, improvisation, music theory, piano, and Finale music notation software. Whatever you're interested in, let's explore it!

I teach voice and songwriting in jazz, pop, folk, country, and R&B styles. I also teach piano and jazz theory. Contact me if you have any further questions; I'll gladly answer them all! I look forward to making music with you!

Online Music Theory Teacher

Music theory has been a part of my life since I was a child. I went to undergraduate and graduate school to learn even more music theory. In undergrad, I studied 8 levels of music theory, starting with the basics and branching into post-tonal and current music theory. I would love to share with students my love for theory and help them realize their own love of it. Theory is a tool that helps with every aspect of music- performance, composition, education, you name it! I've also taken many courses on songwriting, and am happy to include songwriting theory and lyric lessons in music theory lessons.

About Connor

I'm a film composer by trade, but I love teaching as well. I love sharing my passion for music with others. I have a BM from Appalachian State University in piano performance and music theory/composition. I also have an MFA in music composition for the screen from Columbia College Chicago. I st

"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."

"Well, I can say that when we met 24 years ago, I've never seen anyone playing the bass guitar as good as he did, I still remember him playing that beautiful six string bass guitar along with a drummer... I was just trying to catch up with those two ... it was just rehearsal and they didn't need a me as keyboard player , just the slap bass solo was enough for me to step down and watch, I learned a lot just by listening to him. He was a very patient teacher and his musical knowledge was amazing,"

I had the privilege to work with Melissa when I was a student at Cornish College of the Arts. Melissa was always so dedicated and encouraging towards me and my musical goals. If I had a question she would be right there to help me solve it. Melissa's strongest suit in my opinion is her ability to compose music. She is extremely patient, passionate and detailed in her work. Thanks Melissa for everything!"

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …
