Private Music Theory Teacher

Music Theory is the Core of Understanding how ALL Music works anywhere in the world and applies to all Instruments. It's the insight into why we use certain Notes, Chords, & Scales and what makes them work. To have the knowledge is to be a Musician, which is to Understand that when writing a Song, or Improvising all thinks can work as long as you can make it work. It's the Musician who can figure out why it works so he or she will know where to go or what to play.

Great at making sure you understand the basics of music theory before proceeding to the instrument itself. Helping me become a more confident and smarter musician.
Francine D.
I've taken lessons before and have always become disappointed because there was never any structure to the lessons and theory was treated as secondary. I wanted to really delve into theory because that is the knowledge needed to have no limits. Finally, I found Jimmy. He is a true teacher. Jimmy makes sure he teaches you the theory behind what you are doing. I have been playing for over ten years and was not progressing. After just a few lessons with him, I am starting to truly see the fretboard. I am finally excited again!

Great at explaining music for beginners in a way that is simple, fun and efficient!

You will learn the conventions of written music and how to analyze or manipulate notes and chords so that they apply to your musical requirements, whether that of an astute listener or a musician.

Beginning music theory goes along with learning to read music.

Private Music Theory Teacher

Music theory is not as difficult as it might seem. It is simply a collection of logical concepts which explain why certain elements of music sound the way they sound.

About Chris

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. The best lesson that I've personally learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument then you've stopped growing musically. Personall

Awesome first lesson for our 14 year old daughter! She’s pumped to continue with Chris, and we’re pleased with the entire process so far.

I have been taking lessons from Chris for 5 years. He is very open to learn and teach all styles of music. in turn, allowing me learn and play music I though i never would. His guidance in "the technology" of music is also greatly appreciated.
The learning experience with Chris is top notch, never an issue with communication or punctuality.Always able to move around his busy schedule for the "adult" student.
I want to thank Chris for allowing to find my "Soul Mustard" He is the best you can find

Online Music Theory Teacher

Experienced Piano and Music Theory teacher of 45 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of Music Theory and adjacent disciplines like Harmony, Polyphony and Music Forms. I specialize in music pedagogy in all its facets so my students get a complete knowledge of the music basics, elements and forms and how they interact including the knowledge of music perception and cognition. My working experience in different countries and different cultures helps significantly in teaching a student to getting a broader perspective of music, its perception and how to express yourself in music language adequately.

About Anna

I hold a Master's degree in Piano Pedagogy and Music Theory and History. I established my own teaching method that is based on European classical teaching tradition. I am familiar with most of the American piano teaching methods and use their achievements in my teaching widely. Personally, I am

Julia
I have taken lessons with Anna since I was seven years old (currently age 18). I began knowing nothing about the piano or music theory. Neither of my parents can play the piano. I was a beginner in every sense of the word. Now, I have not only a deep love and appreciation for music, but also an advanced musical capacity and repertoire. I have played pieces from a variety of styles and time periods, from Claude Debussy to Mozart to Hadyn to jazz and contemporary. I was able to have a personal high school senior recital and share this love and talent with others. In high school, I completed a music theory and composition course with ease.

I cannot recommend Anna enough. Her dedication and patience is unparalleled and she cares so deeply for her students. She is methodical, attentive, thoughtful, and is an absolute hidden gem of a teacher. Anna opened a world of music to me and I don’t think I can ever truly express how much that means to me. Not only am I a better musician because of her, but I’m also a better person. Her attention to detail and passion have challenged the way that I approach work and hobbies beyond just music.

Anna is particularly skilled as an educator. Beyond simply giving information for students to practice or memorize, she helps them apply the concepts to real musical pieces, guiding them along the way. Her calm but advanced method of teaching helps students advance quickly through musical concepts.

Over the past eleven years, I have spent literally hundreds of hours with Anna honing my craft. If anyone has seen the extent of her talent as a teacher, I’d like to think it’s me.

Five stars out of five stars. Always.
Grace
We are not going back for lessons with Anna. My daughter found her unfriendly and intimidating. Anna wasn’t very good about communicating with us. She finally sent an email to me on the day of the lesson. I felt she was rude. I’m glad she could not accommodate us. We were going to cancel appointments with her. My daughter is very shy. We will be looking for piano lessons elsewhere.
Grace
My daughter is a little intimidated. I’m hoping she softens up a bit

Online Music Theory Teacher

Music Theory is essential for every well-rounded musician. A musician know why something sounds good. Simple theory includes note names, reading music, melody, and rhythm. Complex theory includes how extended chord structures relate to each other, Serialism, and harmonization.

Vince first encountered music theory when he began playing trumpet and reading music. He learned the basics; notes, scales, triads, key signatures, and time signatures. Later (especially when he started studying guitar and piano), Vince studied intervals, exotic scales, and chord progressions. At college and graduate school, he formally studied advanced music theory as applied to tonal harmony, twentieth century music, and jazz.

Often, theories are built upon other theories and thus support each other. Vince teaches the basics through more advanced theoretical concepts - to any musician regardless of instrument - how they can be successfully applied in practice.

About Vince

Vince privately teaches trumpet, guitar, electric bass guitar, arranging, composition, music theory, ear training, and improvisation to students of all ages and levels. “Basically he’s the go-to cross-genre horn-blowing utility man of the Philly scene” (John Vettese, The Key). Vince is a profess

"Catherine’s amazing spirit and passion for learning has been keystone in her connections and successes with experts in the brilliantly niche discipline of music and the theory behind it. Her training is evident in her thorough and methodical approach to a variety of anxiety-boding topics such as augmented sixth-chords and proper voice leading between chords. Catherine’s positive outlook and confidence in her students’ success and progress is transparent and provided me with concrete knowledge and skills that allowed me to perform at the highest level of preparation for assessments and assignments. Without Catherine’s attitude, expertise, and personalized attention, I would not have ever been able to get through my prerequisite courses in my undergraduate training. Music Theory is stressful enough— Catherine’s approach makes it all make genuine sense."
