Private Music Theory Teacher

I am able to to teach music theory from the very beginning up until post-tonal theory. I specialize in teaching beginners with basics like recognizing all key signatures/circle of fifths, solfege, reading in different clefs, intervals, triads, and different types of scales. However, I am an experienced tutor in many levels of theory and can most certainly be of help for homework assignments and creating exercises to understand different concepts.

About Scott

I have been playing drums and percussion since the ripe old age of 9, in 4th grade. Originally wanting to play the clarinet, my music teacher thought my sense of rhythm was too good to waste and placed me in the drum section. I was the only kid who didn't want to play drums. Over twenty years later

Had my first lesson with Scott today. I was very happy with the way it went . I'm 50 years old with no experience at all - so I can honestly say the lesson was enjoyable without any pressure.

Scott is amazing with our 7 year son beginner. He has him so engaged and excited to learn & play. He's a one-of-a-kind teacher.

As a music teacher, I have had the opportunity to teach music theory to many students. While it sounds boring, learning theory does not have to be. It is the foundation for all other music ability.

In between my junior and senior years of high school I went through the difficulty of an embouchure change. Though I struggled f

"I am currently learning music fundamentals. I'm most definitely enjoying the course as it is very engaging and so enriched with the appropriate information needed to better my knowledge of the fundamentals of music. Each session has a perfect balance of both education through lecture and through the constructive criticism provided after singing and playing the piano during the lesson."
