Great teacher.
Mary Beth Y.
I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.

Jamie worked with me when I was trying to pick up cello after not playing since high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. He's very good at identifying problems with technique and suggesting approaches to fix them, and fun to work with.

Online Music Theory Teacher

As a music performance major, I have studied music theory throughout my studies, including at the graduate level. During my undergraduate studies, I served as a music tutor and became certified through the rigorous, student-centered training provided by my university.

I believe musicians of all fields should have at the very least a basic understanding of music theory and how it comes into play regarding music performance, analysis, history, and even enjoyment. A basic understanding of music theory can enhance each individual’s appreciation for classical music.

My graduate degree and extensive teaching background have prepared me to teach you, regardless of your goals for learning music theory!

About Naomi

I am a performer and teacher, specializing in cello and English as a Second Language. I graduated with a bachelor and master degree in music performance (cello) from Ball State University (Indiana). While a student, I had a multitude of teaching experiences ranging from music theory, music history,

"Shon is an expert at all aspects of teaching music on multiple instruments but is especially gifted at teaching music theory that helped me learn to play by numbers which helped me change keys on the fly. No more writing out the chords for praise and worship music. So knowledgeable. You need to stop think about it and call him up and schedule your first lesson. Shon rocks!!"

"The lessons (piano & music theory) I learned from Buzz Amato was the sole reason I got signed to a label & was able to produce 2 Billboard charted singles (which he co-produced with me). I now tour the world djing and produce with talented artists that come to me based off my musical knowledge, that I received from Buzz. I can honestly say NONE of this would happen without the musical instruction of Buzz. Thank you Buzz!"

David is a great tutor and teacher! He helped me to understand the basic fundamentals of music theory and how to develop the skills to be able to practice it at home.

I take music theory lessons with Loretta. I have taken music theory before with 3 other teachers . None of them make it as simple as she does. She explains it in a way that I can understand. I love her and will recommend her to anyone that wants to learn music in general. She is amazing. Can't wait to learn more from this brilliant, professional, musician!"
