Private Music Theory Teacher

Lessons in Musical training are most often included in my Piano lesson sessions. However, I can always provide lessons that focus a little more on the theory & technical aspect of how Music builds on itself & can be structured in so many different ways.

About David

My name is David, and I am an experienced piano teacher and voice coach for both male & female voices. In 2015, I was the Music teacher at a small (K-8) private school in Citrus Heights, California. There, my duties included providing individual lessons with students as well as classes in group set

Really great start! I look forward to many fun, valuable, and informative lessons under David's instruction.
Allie
David is not only a delightful person, he's also an excellent piano teacher. I'm a piano teacher myself yet I needed some help with improvisation--my weakest link. He patiently walked me through adding chords and harmony to a melody. I learned a lot of new ideas, such as leaving out the emotive third interval...that's better utilized in the right hand. He demonstrated how to take a familiar classical piece, namely Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca, and play it completely by ear. His musicianship is lovely and he is patient and thorough in his explanations. His knowledge of music theory is complete and sound. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to start or continue music lessons. He is truly passionate about music and his profession.
Andrew
What a great teacher! He was so patient and understanding and really took his time to help me with what I needed. I am in school for audio enginnering and was not getting the help from my instructors that I needed and he came through and made it all way easy to understand and was super chill to work with. I highly recommend him for anything musical that you might need to know and will definatley will be working with him again! Thanks you so much David!

I know Elizabeth as a colleague, and her work is beyond excellent. She's passionate about teaching and sharing her knowledge with other people as well as helping them to be the best that they can be! And, she's super flexible with scheduling, which is great if you're a Florida snow bird.

5+ stars!
Katie Taylor
My daughter was initially sad to hear that Elizabeth would not be visiting in-person (thanks coronavirus!), but now that we have moved to remote lessons she has been able to continue her learning and still looks forward to her online lessons every week! The transition was so painless, and Elizabeth helped us along to make sure things went smoothly. Her professionalism is truly unmatched!
Helen
We recently switched to online lessons due to the current circumstances, and I have to say that it is working out great! The transition was so easy, and Elizabeth handled everything so we didn’t have to worry at all. Her feedback is always prompt and insightful, and my son has been able to stay motivated and on track with no interruption whatsoever to his learning.

"This tutoring session was probably the best I have ever had. I am taking a Music 101 course in which I am finding myself having trouble with. I took up tutoring with Stephen and he really broke down the steps. Sometimes, I do not understand things the first time when they are explained to me; and reading music happens to be one of them. However, I am very lucky to have Stephen as my tutor who is very patient in explaining the lesson to me. If you want a tutor who is patient and willing to invest time in helping you understand music, I highly recommend that you take Stephen."

He has taught me many new approaches, tips, and tricks to music theory. He has helped me to be able to really understand why things are the way they are, and not just figure things out on paper like an equation. Definitely the best tutor I've ever had!

"Music Theory and Music Performance

Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music."
