I teach Music Knowledge, because it works in any and every musical situation. A "theory'" is just a hypothesis, Music Knowledge works with everyone and works every time- they're is no guessing...improvisation is a whole nutter' animal, though!

Private Music Theory Teacher

Music theory is an area that I love teaching because it really helps to connect the musician’s talents to their musical technical skills. I like to start from a very basic approach that avoids overwhelming the student and goes at their own pace. I especially love to help children learn music theory as it’s a good age to start and have fun with in the way that I teach. I have experienced learning music theory in a very challenging setting where it could be overwhelming at times and I try to bring myself down to the child or students level to not over complicate something that doesn’t need to be over complicated. So I may not be as well versed in complex theory, I can for sure get you started in a very less stressful way that can impact your music skills now, rather than years later after taking several levels of music theory.

Alicia has been a great vocal coach. She is knowledgeable about music and always takes the time to explain why we do the exercises we do. She adapts lessons based on things that I told her I wanted to try. Then, she encourages me to keep going!

She was very thorough..plus her style of teaching will definitely benefit me in the long run!!
Debbie N.
Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

I have experience with music theory all the way through college level harmony. My degree path at Berklee College of Music provided many tools to aid a working understanding of music theory and how it applies to composition and analysis of music. I enjoy helping children, teens, and adults find joy in understanding music theory, from the most basic foundation to intricate chord and rhythmic structure.

I study classical piano and music theory with Ms. Ellis. She is very supportive and encouraging and personalizes lessons and instruction based on each student's skill level and goals. I learn pieces of music that I enjoy, and she provides suggestions and feedback to help me improve my technique, articulation, and rhythm. I think that I have made a lot of progress as a classical pianist through her instruction. Studying music theory with Ms. Ellis has also been very helpful to me, and I have learned a lot about the applications of music theory through the pieces that I am learning. I enjoy having Ms. Ellis as a piano teacher, and I highly recommend her.
