I am really enjoying my lessons. Courtney is very competent, kind and easy going! I think we will accomplish exactly what I was looking for. My goal was to receive a musical education and get me on the way to being a musician. The one on one experience makes learning better. The people online teaching doesn't give me what I was looking for.

Extremely helpful during lessons. Designs the lessons to use song in my areas of interest. Lesson critiques are always done in a positive manner. Right now mostly in the area of finger placement. This does make the music easier to play. Her husband Chris also teaches.

Music is a different language, and theory is how we learn to speak fluently in music. Whether you are brand new to music or a seasoned professional wanting to brush up on your theory skills, lessons with me will help anyone learn to read, write and play better music.
Music theory lessons are not intended for musicians wanting to practice their instruments. Instead, we will work one on one making sure that you master the concepts of music theory. From basic intervals all the way to a 12 tone matrix. You will leave lessons with me understanding what you hear when you listen to music and why it sounds the way it does.

Vivian is a very sweet person who is interested in her student and works at every level to understand the requirements of the student and meet those requirements in the best way. She is encouraging, understanding, and also a good listener -- conscientiously responding to details. Today was just our first intro lesson and I'm sure that I will learn a lot from her! Thank you so much Vivian for your kindness!

Private Music Theory Teacher

I teach students a basic understanding of music theory using voice and/or piano as the learning tool (*cannot teach on guitar). Focus for singers is a strong understanding of music theory as it relates to sight singing and reading music. I work mostly from the Musician's Institute book Sightsinging - The Complete Method For Singers.

For those wanting to learn music theory for beginning piano they will need to have access to a piano or keyboard for practice between lessons, nothing fancy required, an inexpensive keyboard will suffice.

Students will learn about the basic elements of written music: time signatures, note and rest values, meter, rhythm, tempo, keys, intervals, how the circle of fifths works, relative minor scales, all major scales, etc. For those wishing to learn theory on beginning piano, they will also learn how to play chords (major, minor, diminished, basic 7th chords, sus4, etc), inverted chords and how to transpose songs into different keys. Work will be done ...

"By far the best teacher I have ever had. Paul makes lessons engaging, and his wealth of knowledge never comes off as elitist. He explains complicated theory in a practical way for anyone to understand. If I wasn't leaving Chicago I would have signed up for ten more lessons. Ask him about the own music he makes with his band. He's a super talented guy!!!"

"Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!"

"There are those who teach out of necessity, and those who teach out of passion

I'm taking music theory and composition lessons from Daniel to supplement what I already know from composing by ear. He's an excellent teacher, very enthusiastic about teaching the material, and extremely knowledgable. I feel like I've learned a ton so far and we're not even close to done yet! Highly recommended."
