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.

I have been studying music for over twelve years, and love tutoring Music Theory! I know how daunting and difficult music theory can be, so as your tutor, I would offer you homework help, composition assistance, test prep, ear training, and any other skills you need to be successful in your music theory class. I have tutored middle, high school, and collegiate theory students, and look forward to working with you!

Nils opened my mind to the musical potential I've always dreamed of. He is incredibly kind and was always positive no matter how much, or how little(!), practicing I did in between lessons. I feel so
