College faculty member with over 25 years experience Music Theory. I have taught high school through graduate levels of Music Theory, and have a Ph.D. in that subject matter. I am highly qualified in teaching the fundamentals, harmony, form and analysis, part writing as well as advanced theory topics such as serial techniques. In addition, I do teach the "aural" skills, or ear training and keyboard skill development.
