Finally learn music theory properly with an expert teacher who has led music departments for 20 yrs
I am originally from Northern Ireland and am very friendly and approachable. I have taught music theory and led a series of music departments for 20 years in a variety of international settings - UK public schools, international private schools and two US private schools in NY/SF. I have organized a series of concerts, tours, festivals & events and have founded both non-profit organizations and separately a music education company specifically to help teach the world music theory. I have developed entirely new and comprehensive resources to help engage people with music theory. I help to take the confusion out of the process of learning music theory, and hope that you would have the skills to compose, arrange, develop compositional ideas, and structure music effectively. I teach with conventional music notation and use my own resources to teach. I am very experienced using Sibelius to help teach composition and develop your musical style. Learning music theory (properly) is very enjoyable and rewarding.
