Private Music Theory Teacher

I began studying music theory in high school, and have taken several semesters of college-level music theory. To complement and support my music theory and ear training knowledge, I have studied piano at the intermediate level. Music theory will help you appreciate, interpret, and enjoy music - I can't imagine not knowing what I know about music theory, and I want you to feel the same way. Here are materials I can use in music theory lessons:

- The Musician's Guide to Theory and Analysis (Clendinning and Marvin)

- The Musician's Guide to Theory and Analysis workbook (Clendinning and Marvin)

- The Musician's Guide to Aural Skills Sight-Singing book (Murphy, Phillips, Marvin, Clendinning)

- Materials and Techniques of Post-Tonal Music (Kostka and Santa)

- Grand piano (in my College Studio and can be used online)

- Yamaha electric piano (in my Home Studio and can be used online)

I'm a big fan of the series "Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory," which takes the student from the rudiments of music theory through basic harmony.

If students prefer a more in-depth study of theory, we might try the books put out by ABRSM.

My BA had an emphasis in "classical" music theory but I'm also well versed in jazz theory and pop and rock. My understanding of music plays a role in everything I play and write. I love it and love teaching it.

James is very easy to follow..Very relaxed. He is clearly comfortable with his instrument so I feel in good hands..I look forward to working with him to hone my piano playing!

I came away from my lesson with James feeling so happy and knowing that he will be teaching and encouraging me all the way going forward. I am actually lost for words to express what an incredibly positive experience I had today. I am also looking forward to my grand daughter taking lessons from James now too. I feel I got lucky that James is the teacher that was found for me.

"I was a music student at Azusa Pacific University and Adam Tune helped me with Music Theory for two semesters. He is very knowledgeable of the subject, and has a clear, friendly, and logical teaching approach that makes the experience fun. He can explain topics and concepts in a way that is easy to understand.
He is also very knowledgeable in music composition, arranging, and in the use of Logic Pro software that he could use while teaching theory."

"Honestly I couldn't have picked a better teacher. Above all else, Christian really takes the time to help you understand what he's teaching and how to apply it to your own playing. I've been playing guitar for 10 years now and before I started taking lessons from him, I never knew how much I didn't know. Every lesson is fun and engaging and definitely well worth the rate. Bar none."

"Hi Ms Bethany, this is Sheenu(Gia & Dia's mom). I was just confused after the class coz I had signed them both for singing lessons not theory lessons. But as far as I know you gave a great class on the basics of theory, which was wonderful. Thank you so much for your excellent class. Please let me know if I need to do anything more to change it to singing lessons.
Thank you!!

Kind regards,
Sheenu."
