Play an instrument but lacking a little on the theory side? I'll help clear up the musical mysteries for you! All music really shares the same underlying principles, and understanding them can be the key to your success as a musician or songwriter.

Theory is essential if you want to understand what you're doing! I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 19. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons. I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!

20 years I've been including music theory in my lessons and many times giving private lessons just on the subject to Singers, Percussionists and instrumentalists outside of guitar. I have some fantastic sight singing books but I start with your memory, the melodies that have touched you. We explore your personal contact with music to find that you actually know the intervals, the building blocks of music. My understanding of chord function and harmonic colour gets clearly categorized and explained for the student so she/he can use for her/his self to develop a better ear and the right tools to analyze how any song works.

I have studied music theory at the college level and have been writing and composing for over a decade, both alone and in a number of successful bands. I believe in theory as a creative tool rather than simply as an intellectual exercise, and I put strong emphasis on putting knowledge to use.

I believe that Music Theory is essential for all musicians. With a Master of Music from the Mannes School of Music, I am well-equipped to help you learn this skill. Lessons will include music reading, harmony, melody, rhythm, form, tempo, notes, chords, key signatures, intervals, scales, and more. Students of all ages and levels are welcome. My music teachers have greatly impacted my life and my goal is to inspire my students in a similar way. Everyone has a unique learning style and I tailor my teaching to each individual. I love to teach and enjoy helping others achieve their personal musical goals. It would be a pleasure to help you with music theory!
