Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Music Theory can be taught within an instrumental lesson (voice and piano) or in a lesson by itself. I LOVE music theory, and if you've never liked it or been able to grasp it before, it's time to change that! Beginners will master fundamentals such as note-reading, keys, time-signature, rhythms, intervals, scales, chords, and harmonic progressions. Intermediate to Advanced students will build on these skills and learn part-writing and score analysis (both tonal and atonal). Private lessons are an excellent compliment to music theory classes taught in schools, especially for any student who needs outside tutoring.

I am a composer with a Master of Music in music theory and composition from New York University.

Hi, everyone!

I'm so excited to be in Music City! I just moved to Nashville from New York City where I worked with Broadway performers and kids auditioning for some of the most competitive performance schools in the country. I'm confident I can help you achieve your music goals, whether they be learning to produce a powerful, resonate, healthy sound with your voice, becoming proficient in piano from everything from Bach to Billy Joel, or writing clear, catchy songs that will have a big impact on an audience.

Please check out my bio below and feel free to ask me any questions about lessons with the "Ask a Question" button.

Hope to be working with you very soon!

Natalie was great with my 7 year old daughter. They worked together on warmups, and she gave her a song to practice during their off time. Natalie was pleasant, and a joy to work with! She is really great with kids.

She is a great instructor! I am 9 yrs. old. She is kind,pretty,and a lot more than that. She gives you breathing instructions when you start and then you start to sing.. you have to start singing re mi fa sol la ti do. I think if you pick Natalie you will think the same way as me. I can't wait until my next lesson!!!

It was my very first lesson and it was great! I actually learned a song already. She gave me some music to practice. I'm taking 30 minute classes but I think after this session of classes is over I'm going to upgrade my time.

Natalie L. Is a great instructor. I'm learning a lot about how to improve my technique as well as music theory and how to play songs with chords and melodies.

Natalie L. was wonderful to work with. She really helped me with sight reading and tempo (which I sorely needed). She also helped me build my audition repertoire and play with my voice to find new ways of singing. I highly recommend Natalie! She also plays the piano very well, which helps when you're learning new material.
