For someone who is starting out with music theory, it can be tough with remembering key signatures, identifying intervals and chords! While there’s more than those topics mentioned above, Music theory can be thought of the mathematics for classical music. Personally almost finished with my undergraduate theory courses, I have studied undergraduate music theory a few years.

About Keats R.

Hello! I am currently a college student in Lakeland, Florida at Southeastern University. I am in the process of working on my undergraduate degree in music performance with a concentration on cello. I primarily began my studies in piano before taking cello lessons a few years later. I am a teacher that usually teaches classical, but can also teach other things upon request.

I look forward to working with you!

Keats is a skilled and perceptive teacher. I am dealing with many beginner issues and he always has multiple suggestions and ways of explaining how to accomplish the techniques I am working to master.
I am an accomplished flutist but just love the cello so decided to take lessons. He truly seems to enjoy sharing his knowledge.
I feel so fortunate to have found Keats because he really cares about me as an individual although I am truly old enough to be his grandmother. Outside of our lessons, he has sent me links to recordings, a new bow which I have purchased and am thrilled with, and various other cello-related matters of interest to a beginning cellist.
He does not insist that there's only one way to do things and has studied with a variety of teachers himself. He comes from a musical family so is very knowledgeable about classical music. A true musician who understands the love of music.
Lastly, I want to recommend Keats because he has a very gentle, kind manner and praises my work when it is good. He encourages me through frustrations and sets reasonable goals at each lesson.
I am also a music teacher and would recommend him for a student of any age. I know that the relationship that develops between teacher and student is crucial to a student's progress, and Keats is a real and caring person in the lesson, not some drill instructor. I think he would be fabulous with children and certainly relates very well to adults. Give him a try!

Keats teaches my son online as we live in a different country. We’ve been very pleased with Keats. Here are some words from my son:

I am grateful for Mr. Keats as my piano teacher. He does an excellent job at teaching any style of music that I want to cover; he especially does well at explaining and is super understanding for teaching at whatever pace that you s

Very patient. Explained everything very well as I had forgotten most of the piano taken years ago. Reviewed everything to start teaching at my level. Gave some good tips and apps to help me study.

Keats is an excellent and professional teacher. He was always punctual and extremely pleasant. As an adult beginner, I felt very encouraged and challenged while learning cello from Keats. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone who wants a quality learning experience.
