I had an excellent experience with Kris. He challenged me but also understood my specific circumstances and pace. He was flexible with scheduling and helped me greatly improve my piano playing in a short amount of time. We worked on arranged music and songwriting. I’d recommend Kris for all levels!

Private Music Theory Teacher

Music theory is an essential tool that every musician should possess. Many people struggle to understand music theory and are often intimidated by it, but I am here to tell you that you shouldn't. Through many years of study I have developed my own approach to music theory that others have found much simpler and more enjoyable.

I am a professional trombonist/guitarist living in New York City. I recently finished my Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance at the New School For Jazz and Contemporary Music.

Private Music Theory Teacher

From those who are currently learning an instrument, to those who have learned by ear and want to enhance their knowledge, everyone can benefit from music theory lessons. Aside from the basics, I like to introduce theoretical concepts and analysis into the pieces or songs my students are already learning, so they have a deeper understanding of what it is they're playing or singing.

About Gabbi

I am a professional vocalist and composer, with a BFA and BMus in Jazz Performance, and over 12 years of performance and recording experience internationally, including appearances at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center with NY's premiere a cappella ensemble Khorikos, and the Knitting Factory with Bro

Gabbi knows her stuff! She is fun and kind, but is definitely there to help you improve. I've really enjoyed my lessons with Gabbi, and she has helped me out with everything from my choir repertoire to playing around with improvising and making songs my own.

I have been taking lessons with Gabbi for about two months now. In such a short amount of time, I have seen major improvements in my abilities. She provides helpful apps and song recommendations that really expand your vocal range. I record each lesson, as suggested by her, which has made me more comfortable with my voice. Her patience and kindness have allowed me to break out of my shell. She's incredibly knowledgeable and always explains concepts in a way that is easy to understand and replicate. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a vocal instructor!!! Ps- Her accent is adorable!

Gabbi is wonderful! In our first lesson she did a great job assessing where I was and we hit the ground running playing through a number of exercises and songs which challenged me. I feel confident my playing will progress with her!

My son thoroughly loved his lessons with Aaron. Aaron spoke to him a respectful and sensitive way while challenging him to push farther than he ever did in his school band class. We are only stopping lessons because we are going on vacation and will not be back until the new school year has begun. With a new school and an new schedule, I am hoping to be able to continue lessons with Aaron in the future.

As an instructor Aaron is outstanding. He's professional and has impressive attributes being a UCLA grad and participating member of the armed forces; but more so, he's encouraging to his students and in our son - he positively encouraged a passion for the trumpet and a high regard for music in general.

Online Music Theory Teacher

I studied music theory at the Rhode Island School of Modern Music, at the Mannes Conservatory of Music in Manhattan, and at the Reuben Conservatory, in Jerusalem, Israel.
My background in theory is primarily in jazz, which uses some slightly different terminology than classical theory, but mostly applies to all styles, especially as pertains to beginning theory.

"I never thought I would confidently understand music theory, even after years of practice, self-teaching, college electives, etc... I just never felt like I "got" it. Brad changed all that. Studying music theory with Brad's guidance and encouragement, I quickly began to feel as though I could "speak" music fluently.

Brad is a phenomenal teacher, and can adapt to almost any situation. If I wasn't understanding something, he never got frustrated, he would find a way to explain it differently until something finally stuck. That's very important I think. I've had too many teachers give up and say, "If you don't get this, you never will." Brad doesn't think like that. To him, "just not getting it" isn't an option. If you want to learn something, he'll find a way to teach it to you."
