Private Music Theory Teacher

Learning Music Theory is a lot like learning a language. I want to teach you not only to be able to look at scores and to be able to know how the relationships between the chords and notes work, but also to be able to use your ears to dissect pieces of music just by the use of your newly found aural skills.

About Carl

I am a bassoonist, saxophonist and private music instructor in the New York City and Hudson Valley regions. My most recent degree was from Yale University where I earned by Master of Music from the Yale School of Music as a Bassoon Fellow. Previously I earned by Bachelor of Music from the Oberlin C

He is a well trained musician with a lot of patience, which for our lessons went a long way. He is quick to help you find the right correction to technique, and will always cater to your personal needs. His lessons work well even online, as he is able to succinctly verbalize what and how something to be worked on. I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Carl Gardner is an A1 bassoonist. Over the past year and few months he’s improved everything about my playing, technically and musically, and helped me achieve goals I previously thought were impossible. His reeds are immaculate! 5/5 stars would recommend him to any bassoonist I meet.
Amy
Social distancing will not interfere with solo competition! Carl made certain that my daughter did not miss a lesson by proactively finding a way to have one online. Although she prefers to be taught in person, this has definitely allayed her fears of not having her solo polished and ready for competition!

Learn how music works! Keys, scales, modes, chords, etc.
I'll show you how to get specific feels, moods and emotions.

We start basic and go from there until you have a real working knowledge that can be used with any instrument or style of play. The studies that I use are a combination of taking songwriting structures and breaking them down so that they make sense to anyone. I teach chord progressions as well as scales and sometimes go a bit off the deep end when I feel students are ready.

Kyle is amazing with Ableton. Prepping for a live stream I needed some help getting my tracks assembled and configured for use with triggers from a pad in Ableton. While I'm no stranger to DAWs (I use Pro Tools and Logic regularly) - there are a lot of features and tools in Ableton live that I certainly would not have been able to find without countless hours of time and research.

Kyle made it so much easier to understand and learn about features, tools and workflow within Ableton. Thanks Kyle, you're awesome!

I've been taking online lessons with Wei for the past couple of months, and I quite enjoy them. As an adult piano player, I don’t have specific goals. I just play for fun most of the time. Wei, nevertheless, made specific teaching plans for me. He learns my strength and weaknesses, and chooses pieces that are both enjoyable to play and technically challenging for me, so that I’m able to tackle my weaknesses. His expertise helps me improve in many ways, like piano techniques and overall understanding of music. After a few lessons with him, I gained confidence in playing. I’m able to improve my performance of the pieces I love. Besides, Wei is an easy-going person. It’s fun to work with him. I strongly recommend his lessons if you are looking for a teacher with patience, expertise and passion for music.

I'm happy to teach regularly scheduled lessons or just a one time lesson if a student needs help!

About Carter

I believe that everyone has the ability to enjoy and be expressive on an instrument. It is miss instruction and a lack of passion in music education that allows students to become frustrated and bored, ultimately pushing them to quit their instruments. My goal as a music educator is not only to

Today was our first lesson. Karen was on time and professional, and also very personable. She took the time to see what level each of my girls was at. I like that she teaches theory along with playing.

"This tutoring session was probably the best I have ever had. I am taking a Music 101 course in which I am finding myself having trouble with. I took up tutoring with Stephen and he really broke down the steps. Sometimes, I do not understand things the first time when they are explained to me; and reading music happens to be one of them. However, I am very lucky to have Stephen as my tutor who is very patient in explaining the lesson to me. If you want a tutor who is patient and willing to invest time in helping you understand music, I highly recommend that you take Stephen."

I’m also very pleased as she is a warm and welcoming person and I had an easy time communicating with her about what exactly I am looking for, our schedule, and also difficulties with entering our first lesson.
