Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
Beginner

I am a music major at Kansas State University, having completed four of the required music theory classes at a exceeding level.

Lessons will involve learning the basic elements of music theory, such as major and minor keys, music notation rules, and chord structures. With fundamentals in place, we will advance on to the harder aspects of chord identification, counterpoint, and structure.

Because of the nature of learning this subject, we can work with instruments or voice to help learn and grasp the concepts. You should also expect to have some level of outside work as well so that we do not waste time in our lessons going over material you have already learned.

Hello! Are you ready to dive into the musical world of the saxophone!?!

My name is Joshua, a teacher, composer, and performer. I am proficient in saxophone, and competent in flute, clarinet, composition, and piano. My Bachelor of Music degree comes from Kansas State University in the area of Music Composition.

I have a very unique background, coming from the small town of Downs, Kansas. There, I had extensive amounts of experience working with children as a lifeguard, saxophone teacher, and teacher's assistant!

I run my lessons based on what YOU want to learn! We can build the fundamental skills of your instrument while exploring music YOU enjoy! I have played classical, jazz, pep, and modern saxophone, and as a composer I am exposed to many different styles of music.

Music is so much more than notes on a page. It is expression, emotion, feeling...
And I understand that as your teacher, it is my job to equip you with the skills needed to fulfill the true music you want to create!

If you have any questions, please contact me!
