Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Theory is the why of music. Learning it as a performer helps solidify and deepen understanding for music and genres. Music theory explains the way music can take us on a journey. My curriculum goes from learning to read music to applying roman numeral analysis to borrowed chords. I also emphasize an importance on modes and composition exercises.

Jacques Gadway is a great teacher of the violin. He quickly adjusted to my pace of learning and realized my skill level which is so important! He has this sense of patience when it came to my learning and also has excellent time management within 1 hour of a lesson, as he can go on and on to lecture about ways to approach a certain technique or to a piece but somehow still finds time to move on and keeps you moving forward. Each lesson with this instructor had me leaving refreshed and inspired for another week of practice, practice, practice!
