Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
When I first looked at a piece of sheet music, I was lost. It was like I was trying to read a foreign language. And in some ways, it is. Once I understood the rules, just like grammar, it became much more clear. I like to start slow and make sure that the fundamentals are there and build on top of that week after week. Having attended the Berklee College of Music, I’ve learned music theory from some of the finest musicians in the world and can share it with you too.

Teaching since:

Hello! My name is Darrell. I’m currently a student online at Berklee College of Music where I am studying recording and producing. Additionally, I’ve been playing guitar since I was in second grade. Music to me is the air I breathe and am truly passionate about it. I always aim to make lessons as fun as possible. If we’re not having fun, what’s the point of putting in all the effort?

I can teach students how to play guitar, read sheet music, understand basic music theory, and even the basics of working in Pro Tools.

My primary playing style is rock based, but am willing to adjust based on you’re preferred playing style.

I hope to meet you so that we can get your musical journey started!

I bought my son Mark, a guitar for his 8th Birthday. I was very hesitant at signing him up for lessons. As soon as I met Darrell and he gave my son his first lesson I knew he was the right guy to teach my kid. Darrell has made the experience fun and relaxing and something for my son to look forward to.

Great instructor. Darrell has taught me so much through having lessons. He has made the lessons fun and exciting and has me wanting to learn more about music. I have learned how to hold the guitar, and even play my first set of Chords through having lessons.
