My 13 year old son really enjoyed his tennis lessons with Laura, she has the great balance of being supportive and challenging him to grow. She was very encouraging to him and the music selections were fun for him to play and we loved hearing the songs. Highly recommend her!

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!

Super thorough and very encouraging! I always learn a lot at each lesson and feel great about my progress. David meets me where I'm at and at my pace and is always moving me forward at every lesson. Can't recommend him enough!
Amanda
Due to COVID, my son was unable to start traditional in person trumpet lessons. We decided to try virtual lessons to get him started and it's been one of the best decisions we've made! David is knowledgeable on music theory and takes the time to make sure our son understands concepts such as rhythm & pitch. We've seen a great deal of improvement over the past year.

My students can expect simple, down-to-earth music theory guidance.

Music theory provides the language for us to understand what we see and hear in music. Like my trombone lessons, we will start with fundamentals and build upon those concepts.

Paul is a very gifted musician and a great teacher. He is passionate about music, and very patient with students. My son loves his trambone lessons. I highly recommend Paul.

I could tell Paul definitely knew all the tiny details about mastering the trombone since the first lesson. He recognized what I needed to improve upon in order to reach my goals in a timely manner, armed me with the tools to do so, and I have no doubt that I will achieve those goals as the lessons progress.

You already know music theory, the only work is to organize all that knowledge. I am going to help you recognize and understand all that unconscious knowledge in a very easy, fun and yet very effective way.

About Federico

I am a young conductor with an established conducting technique, one that relies on my training with orchestras and choirs. My passion for music and for my students is palpable, and my personal rapport with ensembles is noteworthy – kindness and humor are pillars to me, both on and off the podium.

Jenna
I was lucky enough to have Federico as a conducting teaching assistant and to work with him as members of the Temple University Concert Choir. Fede brought so much light and personality to the choir along with all of his musical knowledge. He truly helped me immensely with advanced choral conducting and would break down ways for me to understand all the technique behind it. My favorite thing is that even though he knows so much about music, he is humble in everything he does and is always willing to learn from his students!
Nick
Federico is a phenomenal teacher. He has the ability to teach the technical skills of conducting and how to interpret the emotions of a piece of music flawlessly, never sacrificing one over the other. Federico’s raw energy, effortless talent, and passion made me WANT to learn how to conduct.
Kyle
As someone who wants to go into choral conducting at some point, I am incredibly happy to have shared many experiences with Fede in multiple classes during my time at Temple University, as he was a TA in both my intermediate and advanced conducting courses. What makes him an outstanding teacher is his wonderful personality and his passion for conducting. Every time I had a lab for my conducting class, it was so nice to be able to work with someone I could learn many techniques from, including learning to open up more with my conducting skills, such as expression. In addition to working well with me in my classes, he has served as an overall excellent role model for the students at Temple University, as his presence alone is enough to put smiles on people's faces every day. Although, I have not had Fede for classical guitar, ear training, or music theory lessons, I am sure he is just as wonderful in those subjects. With that being said, you will not be disappointed with your experience. :)

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …

Can You Pass This Basic Music Theory Quiz? Test Your Knowledge!

A knowledge of music theory is absolutely indispensable to musicians. For beginners, it can seem intimidating, but experienced musicians will attest that theory is well worth the effort needed to master it. While you can certainly acquire proficiency on an instrument without a knowledge of theory, you’ll miss out on the depth of understanding that it provides. Music theory is also extremely useful for musicians. Think of music theory as your tool box. It enables you to analyze, tra …

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …
