Private Music Theory Teacher

I have studied music theory at the college level and have been writing and composing for over a decade, both alone and in a number of successful bands. I believe in theory as a creative tool rather than simply as an intellectual exercise, and I put strong emphasis on putting knowledge to use.

Juan went through many fundamentals of classical guitar, how to place your hands over the strings for articulation and economy of movement. Very useful.
Dawn G.
Juan is wonderful and very knowledgeable in music. He is very patient and makes you feel comfortable. I leave a lesson feeling like I am accomplished and relaxed. It nice to see progress in such a little time. I go home with enthusiasm to learn more and want practice to do so.
Chrystine R.
With a patient and intuitive approach, Juan tailors each lesson to fit not only the student’s skill level, but also desire for depth of understanding. When I first began taking lessons, I was only able to plunk a few chords and play along with a few basic songs. However, over the course of a year and a half with Juan, I gained a foundational knowledge of the classical guitar, as well as the confidence to site read and play a range of other styles of guitar music. He seamlessly integrated music theory concepts into song studies, helping me learn major/minor scales and chord shapes, and then apply this knowledge to better understand song structures and composition. It has been such a great experience learning from Juan, especially because he is both an exemplary teacher and guitar player!

If you are in need of a great music teacher, Patricio is your guy. He is well versed in many areas of the music field (Music theory, songwriting, pro tools software, the list goes on). I've been working with Patricio for several years now and can't thank him enough for how much he has helped me be able to record and produce my own music using Pro Tools and Logic Pro. My favorite thing about Patricio's teaching style is that he incorporates all the different fields so you receive a more realistic and well rounded education. And on top of it, he is a very kind and encouraging teacher. You will not be disappointed.
Carlos
Patricio is the type of teacher that spends time making sure you understand the theory of music instead of just jumping to play the instrument. He knows how to integrate theory into his lessons so that everything make more sense when playing the instrument. He is very knowledgeable about music which makes the experience of learning enjoyable and fun. I had never touched a guitar before I started taking acoustic guitar lessons from Patricio, and he is gradually teaching me the basics with a lot of patience. I am still a beginner, but one of the reasons that I am still motivated to learn is because Patricio is so inspirational. I leave each lesson wanting to learn and practice more. In order to learn something new, you have to be inspired, and Patricio knows how to inspire people to learn.

My Ms. Crabtree.

M.W. is wonderful as an instructor because she challenges you to learn and provides great feedback. Also, I've wanted to learn how to read music and she's teaching me music Theory as well. If there was anything that I could be different it would be Time. She's what I was looking for in an instructor. I consider her as my Ms. Crabtree.

"He's a great tutor and a very nice guy. He was very understanding and flexible with scheduling, despite my multiple last minute cancellations and his teaching was well worth the wait. His teaching method might be slow at first, but it's clear he definitely knows his music theory and music history. Even though it's a little slow at first, he does help establish the basics and provide a more thorough understanding of the subject matter. Moreover, it made retaining the knowledge that much easier. It's also clear that he has a clear passion for the subjects he teaches and it bleeds into his teaching, which makes the subject considerably less dry and boring.

I'd highly recommend him to anyone who is just beginning music theory and/or piano playing as you'll pick up a solid foundation in these subjects. He is also extremely patient, making sure I understood the initial concepts before moving on to more complex topics. I just wouldn't recommend him for any last minute cramming: as he does like to take his time to provide a quality learning experience rather than just reviewing and memorizing."

"I had the pleasure and honor of being one of his students in Mexico City while I was in music college. He's a very disciplined teacher (never missed a class) and he has complete dominion over the subjects he teaches. Roberto's not only an amazing guitarist but he has a unique way of teaching music theory and history that makes you quite familiar with the different approaches to music over the different ages. He also shows a legitimate interest over his students, he challenges then and even owns when he's pointed out mistakes by them. During my time as his student I also realized that he was quite respected by the other professors. Fair warning: he can be a little sarcastic but he means no offense whatsoever to his students and fellow musicians."

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …
