Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
Beginner
I have many years of music theory and performance experience. Most recently I composed the piano and vocal score for an original musical that completed an extended run at the NY Theatre Festival in the summer of 2017. Understanding the basics of music theory is like understanding the basics of any language. Once you understand the rules, there is no limit to what you can say and create. If you are looking to better understand music and how to read it, to become a better musician, songwriter, composer, or singer, I can help you! You will learn and understand scales, key signatures, time signatures, rhythm, and so much more!

I am a composer, lyricist, and multi-instrumentalist. I have over 15 years of music study under my belt, and graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a minor in music in 2010. I not only have extensive music theory knowledge, but also experience playing clarinet, saxophone, flute, banjo, and guitar.

I believe that a strong foundation in music theory is the most essential skill to have when learning a new instrument, or becoming proficient in an old one. Recently I co-wrote an original musical comedy about Lewis and Clark, which I also composed all of the music for. The 120 page score was written for piano and vocals, despite the fact that I do not play the piano. How was I able to write music for an instrument I do not play? By understanding the basic rules and concepts of music theory!

I am also a comedy writer and have written sketches, essays, short stories, television pilots, plays, and more! If you are struggling with your writing and need a teacher to help teach you the formatting and style you need to improve, I'm your guy!
