Private Music Theory Teacher

Weather you dream to create your own music one day or applying for college to make music to be your life career - you need the knowledge of music theory. I provide individually developed courses of music theory which include subjects such as solfeggio, harmony and music analisys. More than scales, chords and arpeggios, my assignments require from you the usage of a piano to be able to apply the received theory information for further progress.

About Polina

Polina is an amazing teacher. I learned so much in my first lesson. She's encouraging but honest, which is perfect for those who want real feedback to improve. Can't wait for my next lesson!
Lynn
Only a few times in your lifetime, you come across a person who changes your perspective. Polina is such a person. She introduced to music that I can create by myself. Music of grand masters which I attempt to play and eventually perfect. When Polina teaches, all things come easier. Her encouragement, her patience, her helpful hints make you feel like you are her best student. You learn, you improve and you succeed. Every lesson is enjoyable and you cannot wait for the next.
Torry
Polina is so knowledgeable and informative. We jumped right in and she gave me great feedback on a piece I’ve been working on for a while. She is very motivational and I am excited to continue to work with her and improve my technique and ability.

Private Music Theory Teacher

I became obsessed with music theory when I started composing music in high school. I have an uncommonly high level of enthusiasm for it and would love to share it with you.

I know music theory basics like the back of my hand. I used to write pieces with Common Practice Period voice leading for fun. I regularly work with classical and jazz harmony, and I have analyzed many pop and rock songs.

Whether you are looking to improve as a composer or songwriter, or to pass a music theory class, I can make music theory fun and relevant for you.

Online Music Theory Teacher

I will teach you theory so that you can better understand the music you play and hear. I tend to focus on finding ways to apply the theory we focus on so that you can be more creative in music that you create. Whatever you'd like to focus on, from the basics of chords all the way through complex harmonic substitutions or 12-tone set theory, I can help you learn and understand music in a way that will hopefully enrich your experience with music!

About Will

Whether you (or your child) want to learn classical, jazz, pop, gospel or rock, I have experience performing and teaching many different styles of keyboard and piano.

Mark has been a great teacher for this adult beginner! I take lessons in clawhammer banjo and ukulele with him, and his easy-going nature and skill in identifying ways to improve make it a joyful experience! Highly recommend.
SK
Mr. Sylvester is one of the greatest. He is not just an amazing guitarist, but he is also very kind. He treats people with so much respect. He speaks to me and my mom so nicely. He is very patient. He has a deep knowledge of music and knows how to get the most out of even the least talented people (like me!). He doesn't ever get mad if you make a mistake or forget to bring your music notes. We were so lucky to find Mr. Sylvester.
Virginia
Mark is a talented musician who plays and teaches multiple stringed instruments. His lessons are always informative and supportive. They are driven by the student’s interest, so anything you want o learn— styles of music, how to do a particular technique, music theory— you can bring to class. And every now and then he organizes a recital— terrifying but great practice!
