Music Theory is covered for all ages and levels from beginner to advanced. My suggestions for beginner kids ages 5-9

Lisa Ng series of "Theory made Easy" this book is great! it combines puzzle solving, note reading, stickers and is a fun way to introduce kids to music theory.

For the student that has had some theory experience, The "Master your Theory" series is great. by Charles S. Peters and Paul Yoder book1-6

Similarly, Alfred's Basic Piano for adults has theory combined in the piano books for those who start at a later stage.

First lesson ever for my daughter. Francisca was so patient and understanding.
Gabriela
I have been taking online lessons with Francisca for 2 years. It has been great, as it fits more in tune with my work schedule.

As someone who has a little bit of a singing background, I was looking to improve my range and vocal power.

Francisca has helped me so much in helping me find my voice, connecting my chest and head voice, and giving me the confidence to sing in public once again. She is very warm and personable, and most of all accommodating. She is very well rounded with several years of experience as a performer and coach.

I highly recommend her for all your online lesson needs.

Private Music Theory Teacher

Students who show an interest in music but only prefer to play piano for part of the lesson study music theory. We use a Workbook for theory homework in lieu of practicing piano from a Lesson Book at home. Students enjoy playing music theory instructional games during the lesson and at home.
With a Master of Arts in Music Theory, I enjoy teaching theory students of all levels.

My goal is to help my students develop a deeper love for and understanding of music. I like to work on the music they already know and love and also help to introduce them to new musical directions.

About Isaac

As I’ve developed my teaching style over the last ten years, I’ve found myself zeroing in on a few key qualities I want to cultivate in my students and in my self. These include great ears, a high proficiency on the instrument, and a strong and interactive sense of musicality. At the center of my p

Isaac knows his stuff. He has been great in teaching music theory and piano. Easy to get in contact with and flexible in scheduling.
Greg A.
Isaac is an excellent teacher and is highly recommended. His method is not centered on drills, music reading or repetition, but rather on getting an understanding of how the notes, chords work together. In so doing, the student gets a great understanding of theory and it opens the door to improvisation. In addition he's very patient with folks such as myself who don't come to class with a deep understanding of music theory.
Victoria Danberg
I have just begun lessons with Isaac. He is an excellent teacher; attuned to my needs, very good at explaining things, patient, very good at getting me to understand what I need to know. I look forward to learning upright bass with him!

My biggest passion is exploring harmony. I believe my goal as a teacher is to give students the tools to create their own masterpieces.
Being a theorist, I make it my mission to explore and learn everyday. I am a student to! Get ready to dive deep into the ocean of harmony; from understanding the DNA behind all scales, modes, and cells and how they connect to understanding music and creating your own.
Beginners : Intro to learning how to read music, study of the interval, study of the chromatic scale, major scale, and minor scale, as well as triads and how they interact to create your own songs!
Intermediate: Study of the secondary dominant, harmonic analysis, study of all seventh chords and their inversions/motion, 4-part harmony and counterpoint.
Advanced: Dig deep with me into the realm of the harmonic and melodic minor scales, which create realms of modulations and redefining the coloring of your music. Exploring A-Tonality and Tonality; I will expose to you endless ...

Online Music Theory Teacher

I took my first Music Theory course in high school and immediately fell in love with it. I never listened to music the same way again. Just as people who know the rules of a sport seem to have a deep connection when watching it, I feel people with an understanding of the rules of music enjoy it to a higher degree.
It all starts with an introduction to piano and learning how to read pitch and rhythm. Then a trip back in time to study early music and how it evolved into what we hear today.

I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend.

David , arrived on time at my home for my first piano lesson in 25 years.
He was friendly and knowledgeable and soon found some things for me to work on, but he was patient with this 53
Year old guy.
I feel confident that my piano skills will improve greatly with David’s tuition.
I eagerly look forward to my next lesson.
Tam T.
David is the best and the sweetest piano teacher we have ever have. He is so patient, kind, caring and creative in his teaching method.

My 5 year old has a little autism symptom so she's very easy to get distracted. Yet we have great fun time in every class with him. His class worth 20 min driving there and 20 min driving back, using toll road!
Lori
David has been so amazing with out 9 year old daughter. We have gone to him for over 2 years and she has come so far with her skills! He has so much patience. He's so kind and wonderful with kids. We were recommended by a friend and now we recommend him! He's high in demand for sure! We are sad we can't use him anymore due to scheduling issues. His prices are better than others too!

"My name is Mary Mercurio Santos, and I am the Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction Coordinator for Azusa Pacific University. Adam worked under my direct supervision as a Tutor and Supplemental Instruction Leader for approximately three years while he was an undergrad at APU.
Adam's knowledge of music, and Music Theory is extensive and comprehensive, and yet he has the ability to break down these complicated theoretical concepts and make them easy to understand for even the most basic learner. I have seen him successfully tutor students at all levels of musical knowledge and experience. If you need to know ANYTHING about music, I strongly recommend you reach out to Adam for services."

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! I really like classes with her."
