Ever wanted to understand the inner workings of the music that you love, perform, or revere? Music Theory and Analysis opens windows to a higher level of understanding of music.

Our first lesson will assess where your currently level of musical understanding is and progress from there. Whether you are a music grad looking for a refresher or someone looking at the material for the very first time, through meticulous exploration we will go from scale degrees to counter point and upper structure harmonies.

As a performer, there is no other discipline in music I use more frequently than music theory.

About Nathanial K.

Hi, there! My name is Nate and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2007 and have loved helping my students grow, excel, and learn to have fun with music. I went to Longy School of Music at Bard College and earned a degree in Modern Brass Performance in 2012. I'm a professional studio trombonist and will push you to your highest level of potential always but love to make it fun along the way. It is hard sometimes starting out learning new things so its always best to have a good sense of humor about it. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
