Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hello! Teaching students at beginner and intermediate levels of music theory, I feel I can provide a solid foundation and understanding of the basics and some of the more advanced concepts and schools of thought in music theory. My experience writing songs will also provide you with a basic set of skills for writing your own.

Through our lessons, you can expect to learn or solidify your knowledge of music theory basics and move through history and the development of music to build an understanding of how music is written, as well as learn some basic composition skills.
