Want to eliminate writers block? Or make amazing musical compositions? Are you interested in music production? My take on theory is like no other! I make it easy to follow, covering an array of topics I find important to help you gain not only a deeper understanding but ultimate control over music itself and your vision for it. Starting from the ground up from pitch tuning and scales to advanced topics like counterpoint workflow and creativity and everything in between. I've been composing for 21 years since the age of 12 and I'm an amazing teacher with a lesson plan designed to get you to a level where you are constantly inspired and creative with all the skills you need to take the music from mind to sound.

"I am a good pianist but I really wanted to work on music theory and analysis. I chose Aaron because I wanted to know more about what I was playing. Aaron has really provided me with profound insight on multiple levels into the music I am working on, such that my performances have gained entirely new meanings. I have been working on Shostakovich's Piano Concerto no. 2 and he has really helped me to understand the harmonies in the second movement. Aaron has a warm, inviting personality and is a delight to take lessons from. I highly recommend this teacher."
