Miss Susan is a great teacher. I have a lot of fun in piano lessons.

I expected Percussion lessons where going to be on a complete drum set however NO Drums supposedly the snare was being repaired. Not even a drum pad was available but a book was used and an African drum. I think her forte is piano lessons. .Will be calling for a refund. Waste of time and gas!!!!
Alyssa T.
Susan was very nice and also very easy to understand. She was funny and incorporated jokes within the lesson and also shared some of her own experiences with the piano with me. Overall, it was a very good lesson and i cannot wait for the next one.

Online Music Theory Teacher

My theory training came from the top notch theory staff at Chicago College of Performing Arts. I love to teach music theory from building major and minor chords to jazz modes, chord progressions, four part harmony, voice leading, etc. I am currently a tutor at the University of Iowa for undergraduates taking music theory and am especially knowledgeable about that course material.

With Caleb's classes. my son was able to catch up with his trombone lessons in school. Caleb was extremely knowledge about the subject matter and also offered a list of events with trombone(s). We are very appreciate of his well-thought lesson plans and wish him the best in the future. We discontinued only because my son will not be continuing with Band next year in high school.

My son has learned so much in just a few lessons with Caleb. He is also practicing more than ever as Caleb is giving him excellent feedback and instruction. Can't wait to see how he does with upcoming auditions and looking forward to more leasons.

I'm a big fan of the series "Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory," which takes the student from the rudiments of music theory through basic harmony.

If students prefer a more in-depth study of theory, we might try the books put out by ABRSM.

Unique approach which works well for the littlest ones ... the idea is to keep them interested in the Music and in the instrument so they WANT to “play” but they’re really practicing all week on their own. Great dude ...

My son Rohan has been learning Piano lessons from Mr. Stephen Mccool for about 4 years. Stephen has vast musical experience and is an excellent teacher. He's been really helping my son shape his music and his musicality with technique work and working on pieces that he really enjoy. He goes above and beyond on his musicality. He helps and support my son when he makes a bad move and he helps my son figure out what the pieces mean to him and what they could mean to my son in a way that focuses on the music. Even through the pandemic and completing lessons virtually, he delivered excellently without any delays. My son always looks forward to this piano classes. Stephen is fair but firm with students and I highly recommend him for any student who wants to learn piano. Thank you Stephen for your continuing efforts to present music as a logical, creative, fun, understandable art!
Keaton
I really enjoyed my lessons with Stephen. I'm an adult with some musical experience from college and high school, but not much. He brought a level of energy to our lessons that made them engaging and motivating. He came prepared with lesson goals, but also was flexible enough to work on specific things and songs that I wanted to study. Working with Stephen has given me tools to effectively use my voice and to feel more confident in reading music. After our 10 lessons I have significant improvement in both range and ability. I started without being able to sight-read very well, and now I feel much more confident.

Profile_183527_pi_Pat%20Glasses
"Patricio is the type of teacher that spends time making sure you understand the theory of music instead of just jumping to play the instrument. He knows how to integrate theory into his lessons so that everything make more sense when playing the instrument. He is very knowledgeable about music which makes the experience of learning enjoyable and fun. I had never touched a guitar before I started taking acoustic guitar lessons from Patricio, and he is gradually teaching me the basics with a lot of patience. I am still a beginner, but one of the reasons that I am still motivated to learn is because Patricio is so inspirational. I leave each lesson wanting to learn and practice more. In order to learn something new, you have to be inspired, and Patricio knows how to inspire people to learn."

And with her help, I was able to write some beautiful piano solos!! She also helped me figure out how to record them so I could record them with my friends and post my solos online. They are so good!!! :D And I am so proud of myself!!!! I highly recommend Taylor!! She was so helpful and nice and sooooo funny!!

"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."

"Ahmad is very energetic and passionate about guitar and teaching guitar to people. He is very organized and systematic in his teaching. His style of teaching enables students to learn and get to know a wide variety of guitar aspects very quickly. He breaks up lessons into short but consumable modules while at the same time giving something concrete to start playing and get going from the word go whether you are a beginner or not. I've been going to him for several months now and would highly recommend Ahmad for his guitar teaching skills!"

I started taking lessons with Jillian around when i started high school a couple years ago. I play french horn in school, and I'm considering studying music in college, so I definitely needed to know more music theory. I play guitar too, so we started studying songwriting, too, so that I can write some songs with my band. Jillian's so nice, and really smart, so she makes it really easy to learn!

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …
