Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I've been studying music theory for six years, and I've been a music theory tutor for three years. I currently study music theory pedagogy at the Peabody Institute, and I am a graduate assistant for the music theory department.
Music theory is a mathematical approach to music, and can successfully be taught to every type of learner. I have experience teaching student just beginning, studying musical form, counterpoint, atonality, and ear training. Music theory can be abstract, but it improves the understanding and appreciation of music to a listener, composer, and performer.

January 2015

Hello! I'm Madeline, and I'm a vocal performance and music theory pedagogy major at Peabody Institute. I've been a music theory tutor since Fall 2014, and teaching private voice lessons since January 2015. I love introducing students to new repertoire, showing them a different way of looking at concepts, and helping students realize how smart and talented they are. I want my students to feel prepared for where their love of music takes them, and we are absolutely going to have fun while learning. I'm excited that you are interested in learning, too, and I cannot wait to hear from you.

I have had to the pleasure to work with Madeline during the past few months and I can confidently say that she is a well-rounded, sensitive and hard working musician. As a pianist you always want to work with a singer who is respectful and who wants to collaborate on a high level, and Madeline showed me that from the very first time we worked together. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and hard-working and I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

I have been taking singing lessons with Madeline for a while now, and I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher! Her personality can make anyone feel welcome. I am very shy but she manages to get me out of my shell. I have definitely felt that my confidence has improved tremendously since I started my lessons. Madeline is also extremely talented, patient, flexible, and helpful. She can very easily explain a concept or a technique by creating an image in your head, which I find immensely useful.

I have recommended her to all my friends that are interested in taking singing lessons and plan on continue to do so, because she really is a great teacher! I am very thankful to her and always look forward to my next lesson 😊

Madeline is sweet and so knowledgeable. She is one of the greatest teachers I have ever worked with. She can help with anything from the basics and fine tuning to the most complicated of pieces. She makes the lessons fun and educational. In only a few weeks I feel I've learned more then I ever did in school music classes.
100% recommend.

Madeline combines her terrific knowledge of singing, anatomy, music theory and songs and shares it in a wonderfully accessible, patient, passionate and age-appropriate way. My daughter has her lesson scheduled for Fridays after her long school week is finally done and no matter how tired and sometimes grumpy she might be as she heads into her lesson, she is always smiling and cheery when she finishes.

Madeline was so friendly and helpful. She connected with me on a personal level through tutoring and we're still friends today! She helped me through my music theory classes in college and adapted to my learning styles easily. One of the sweetest people I know, thank you Madeline!

Just when I thought music theory was hopeless for me, Madeline became my tutor and that turned around so quickly! She is so helpful, relatable and friendly. She's an excellent tutor and never failed to help me understand a concept. She has a beautiful voice and I guarantee you will be so much better for it if you take lessons or tutoring from Madeline.

I worked with Madeline while I was taking my music theory classes and she was great at helping me simplify and understand the content. She worked well with people at all different levels and always had these small tricks to make things easier.

Madeline is an incredibly intelligent, patient and passionate teacher. Her immense knowledge of music theory and voice pedagogy well equip her to advance the voice of any level of student. Her gentle yet directed teaching style helps students feel safe and comfortable while exploring the very intimate art of singing. Her personal investment in each student and passion for the art of singing and teaching singing is a rare gift that should not be overlooked. I highly recommend studying voice with Madeline Huss

Madeline is the best teacher!! My 12 year old daughter looked forward to each and every lesson! She made things so fun and she was so positive! Very up beat personality. My daughter got two major lead roles in school musicals with Madelines training. Our time with Madeline ended because she moved, or we would still be with her!!

Choir · In studio

I have had the pleasure of singing with Madeline in The Concordia Choir in Moorhead, MN. She was the soprano section leader, as well as the choir's go-to soprano soloist. Talented yet humble, Madeline often inspired the choir through her passion for music and her joy for singing. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a teacher!
