Private Music Theory Teacher

Music Theory can be a daunting subject for some, so I strive to break down major concepts to be easily digestible and make it fun! My goal is always to make sure the student's foundational knowledge is strong, so that they can continue to grow well beyond our tutoring on their own. I teach both classical theory and jazz theory. I am happy to help with college/AP work and students who are on a more rigid curriculum, as well as students who just want to expand upon what they already know. I incorporate ear training, transcription, and arranging into my lessons for a diverse and immersive experience.

About Taylor

An artist with incredibly diverse taste, Taylor’s musical training is rooted in classical music, though she has had training and performance experience in a multitude of musical genres. She has done work with artists ranging from Juanes to Barry Manilow. Taylor is a Downbeat award-winning artist, h

Taylor is absolutely incredible. I've been taking voice lessons from her since I was a freshman in high school, and she has never failed to amaze me, Her passion and dedication to the arts and to her students know no boundaries. She pushes each of her students to grow and develop their talent with precision. She is an incredibly talented vocalist with a background in many genres. I have had such an amazing time being taught by her.

Taylor's the best! She is kind, patient, and very thorough. I've been taking music lessons with Taylor for about 2 years and she has really helped shape my musicality and develop musicianship skills. She has helped me with piano, voice, and music theory and always makes sure I am comfortable and understand the content. She teaches in a way that is enjoyable and easy to understand. Never a dull moment!

Kareem is superb. Under his tutelage I am certain I will advance quickly from my current skill set. I'm more convinced than ever that I can become a real musician. His assignments require the commitment that I am willing to invest. I hope I will live up to his expectations.

Online Music Theory Teacher

What's the difference between Music and Sound? Maybe you want to know the rules of composition, the theory, form and analysis of music; or maybe you just want to do things by ear. Either way, I can help you understand the complexities and simple things about the building blocks of music and aid you in finding the song in you.

About Kimberly

I grew up in a household of 9 where music was always center stage. We would sing as a family in different venues and were often called the VonTrapp family. I have enjoyed singing and performing from a young age. I began studying flute at age 8, after scoring highest in the harmony listening exam an

I have been working with Kim for a few weeks and I have learned a tremendous amount and can hear the difference every week as I progress. I enjoy the process she applies to keep it positive and fun yet learn the proper fundamentals required to perform well. I actually tried a few vocal teachers and Kim with her wisdom and experience made it simple who to go with!!

Kim can teach you or your child, no matter where you are!

I was 30 when I decided to rekindle my love for the violin. I hadn’t played since before YouTube was invented, and I was skeptical about learning violin online. By the first lesson, Kim had already corrected poor habits I didn’t know I had, just after hearing me play a few scales. She adjusted her teaching style to my personality so seamlessly that I felt I was just getting pointers from a dear violinist friend whose advice is always spot-on. Weekly practice never felt like work, because Kim tailored my assignments to my goals. Before I knew it, I was playing complex concertos I could never do in high school. I started out being able to play just one major scale. Within 10 months, I was in Suzuki Book 4!
I can’t say enough about Kim’s expert teaching skills. During a sight-reading of a very difficult piece, I became so frustrated that I wanted to stop the lesson and try again later. Kim encouraged me until I had gotten all the way through, and pointed out what I could learn from my performance. When I had time to calm down, I realized that Kim can do this for any student; adults, children, and adults whose inner child throws a tantrum when they’re frustrated by a musical challenge. :-)

Teachers like Kim are rare, and worth their weight in gold. I learned so much more than violin fundamentals through my lessons with her. I’m convinced Kim can teach anyone, of any age—even through an online platform.
