Music theory distills and analyzes the fundamental parameters or elements of music, €”rhythm, harmony (harmonic function), melody, structure, form, and texture. It helps better understand what is played and how certain functions affect the certain musical compositions.

Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Peter is exceptional. His instruction is simple, straightforward and progressive

I have no strings background and I thoroughly enjoyed my first Ukulele lesson with Aleksis. Not only did we go through techniques, we also got to play a Bob Marley song at the end of the lesson. Who knew it was possible to play an entire song on the first lesson?! It was really fun and I really look forward to our next lesson.

Online Music Theory Teacher

Private study of music theory with me is highly individualized. For beginners, we will start with the basics of tonality, intervallic relationships, rhythm, and ear training. We will then progress into a study of harmony, musical modes, mixed meter, etc. Lessons can be done in conjunction with piano instruction if possible. I always like to use audio recordings and sheet music of recognizable compositions, both contemporary and classical, to augment a student's understanding of concepts.

About Steven

I work as a composer, producer, and recording artist who specializes in writing music for film, television, games, and other multimedia experiences. I believe in in

"Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory."

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine.
