Like other subjects I teach, we will begin at your current level and progress from there. If you're just starting to learn music theory and need to learn the basics - or even if you're more advanced and want to learn elements of voice leading, atonal theory, or even Schenkerian analysis - I will explain theoretical concepts, break them down, and ensure you understand each aspect of our lesson. I have also given music theory lessons as a way of tutoring students currently enrolled in an academic music theory course. Just let me know your current level and we'll design a plan for you!

About Jeremy M.

I've been composing and arranging music professionally for over 20 years. As Staff Arranger for the US Air Force Bands program, I have crafted selections ranging from classical/symphonic compositions to pop/rock/country arrangements, jazz & big band selections, and chamber music. My music has been performed by military worldwide, as well as university & high school/middle school bands, drum corps, professional symphony orchestras, and I spent a number of years creating brass ensemble "showstoppers" for the annual artist faculty concert at the National Trumpet Competition. Many of my original works are published, either through LudwigMasters Publications or Bandworks Publications.

Some notable performances of my music include the LA Philharmonic's 4th of July series at the Hollywood Bowl, performances at the Midwest Band & Orchestra Clinic, and music for the televised funeral service of President Ronald Reagan. I have also worked extensively as a conductor and have conducted groups ranging from beginning bands to professional orchestras.

I needed help knowing how to arrange a full band work for my Instrumentation Class project. I offered to pay him to do it for me but he wouldn't do that (haha). But he did sit with me and show me how to do it myself and I was happy I learned something. It wasn't great but if I had the desire to be an arranger then I would definitely study more with Jeremy.

Jeremy did a great job teaching me how to write an arrangement for a jazz band. I hadn't ever done anything like that and had no clue how to write rhythm parts. He gave me all the help I needed to know how to write chord symbols and notation for a rhythm section - lead sheets for the piano and guitar players, a bass part, and drum set parts. They all said the parts looked great. Thanks Jeremy!

Without Jeremy, I never would've gotten my Master's Degree. As I was preparing for my comprehensive exams in music performance, I had five pieces ranging from Medieval all the way through 20th century that had to be studied and analyzed for the music theory section of my exam. Jeremy was able to help me (and my entire study group) by teaching us in a knowledgeable, yet approachable way. He has a great deal of patience and a very kind demeanor. I wish I had encountered a teacher like him while in my undergrad music studies. He simplified so many of the concepts and ideas of music theory which really helped me to understand the analysis process and gave me full confidence when taking my comprehensive exams. He never made me feel stupid when asking questions and even when he had to explain the same concept over and over (which that happened often) he never lost his patience. He is so incredibly knowledgeable as a musician and such a delightfully kind person.
