Music theory is just the names and numbers we use to identify and organize musical sounds so that they sound good and happen at the right time, with great beats. It's way better than grunting and pointing when musicians communicate. I can teach theory the classical way, the Nashville way, or the juke joint way - whatever you need to understand musical materials so that you can use them to best advantage and communicate with your fellow musicians

Private Music Theory Teacher

I teach music theory from beginner to collegiate level. Are you taking AP Music Theory, or a college level Intro to Music Theory course? Are you LOST? I can help YOU! Often times, students will take college level music theory classes because they love music, but the class ends up being more than they bargained for! Inversions and cadences and chord extensions can seem like hieroglyphics if you don't have a strong foundation. I can take the mystery out of learning how to read music to make sure you really understand the basics.

About Dawnn

I have been playing violin, viola and cello for 21 years at the age of only 27. I am the Principal Conductor of Ovation Youth Symphony Orchestra. Previously, I was the Assistant Conductor of the Crossroads Youth Orchestra. I have been teaching for 11 years. I have experience teaching children as

I began lessons with him because i was not satisfied with the music theory classes at the school i am enrolled in, as well as the classes did not accommodate well to my learning differences. David not only has endless knowledge of music theory but also has shown me tools and helpful methods for studying music. I highly recommend taking lessons from David if you are either a beginner or you are at a higher level and would like to expand your knowledge of music theory."
