Private Music Theory Teacher

I have written three books on chord theory. If you can understand chords, you can understand melodies and how to examine them. "Theory" is just the WHY's of playing music.Most of it is just learning what certain symbols mean, like learning a language that's a very easy one to learn. I'll no only show you what you need, but also what you don't need.

Outstanding instructor! Beckie is very positive and encouraging and my son has learned so much in just a few weeks. My son looks forward to his session each week.

Hello Tom,
Thank you for your email. I would like to let you know that Ala is really interested in learning Piano. Last week, she had some difficulties with rhythm. We always encourage her to play the Piano and we say to her that it is ok, if sometimes she cannot play very well. So, we(especially Ala) really want to continue learning the Piano for a year.
She stated to practice Piano every day for 30 minutes! She only needs to be encouraged!
Thanks again!
Best,
Maryam

Tom is a great instructor! He is very patient and engaging during lessons. Tom also plays various brass instruments as accompaniment during the lesson to demonstrate how notes should sound. Overall, I think the personalized attention and support Tom provides helps support my son’s playing. My son says he enjoys his lessons because it's fun, and he feels that he is continually improving his technique and gaining more confidence in his trumpet playing.
Steve S.
I am starting over from scratch with trumpet. Tom is helping me to rebuild and strengthen that foundation, develop good habits and skills with meaningful exercises and great learning materials. In just a few lesson I feel I have made great progress while enjoying myself immensely. Tom's lessons are a delightful experience; I alway leave them feeling very energized and refreshed. My favorite part of our lesson is when we play duets together. Tom plays his Euphonium, I love the sound of that instrument, while I play trumpet; these duets sound just heavenly. I do not have enough good things to say about this instructor, other than I am simply delighted with the experience. Thank you Tom. -s.

Music Theory can appear to be a daunting foreign language. These lessons will bring the concepts easily and understandably into the light. I will personally lead you to practical and logical solutions that make Music Theory more naturally applicable to music, making it both easier and more practical.

"David is awesome! I began lessons with him because i was not satisfied with the music theory classes at the school i am enrolled in, as well as the classes did not accommodate well to my learning differences. David not only has endless knowledge of music theory but also has shown me tools and helpful methods for studying music. I highly recommend taking lessons from David if you are either a beginner or you are at a higher level and would like to expand your knowledge of music theory."

"I started taking guitar lessons for the first time 10 months ago and am thankful I found such a great teacher in Ahmad. His positive attitude and love of music helps me stay engaged and lessons are productive and fun.

One of the great things about Ahmad is he listens to you and adjusts lesson content based on the feedback you provide. His ability to listen allows Ahmad to deliver a personalized lesson plan that incorporates your goals and gets you excited about what you are working on.

Ahmad also has taught me techniques to prevent and address minor aches that come up while learning to play. He takes this seriously and shows you how to prevent and resolve any issues that come up.

Overall, taking lessons from Ahmad has been a very positive experience. I look forward to continuing working with him to get better."

"It has been a few years since our daughter, Michaela, took piano and music theory classes from Howard Richman. However, hardly a day goes by when she is not using something that she has learned from him. Whether she is writing a song, composing music, producing a track, playing the piano, singing, rehearsing, performing, etc…it always involves some aspect of her lessons with Howard. She is always referencing material from her classes with him. The enjoyment and confidence that Howard instills in his students, through his methods of teaching, truly must last a lifetime. Going to Howard was one of the best decisions that we have made regarding Michaela's career. In fact, as it turns out, it was a life changing experience for her. Needless to say, we have the very highest recommendation for Howard Richman."

I'm most definitely enjoying the course as it is very engaging and so enriched with the appropriate information needed to better my knowledge of the fundamentals of music. Each session has a perfect balance of both education through lecture and through the constructive criticism provided after singing and playing the piano during the lesson."
