Online Music Theory Teacher

I have been teaching music theory for years. Since 2012 I have been teaching in many schools and churches to help my students understand what they are playing, what they want to play and what they hear. My students can hear a chord and tell me if it is major/minor/diminished/augmented/dominant etc. They also will be able to figure out what key a song is in by ear and what key a vocalist is singing in for accompaniment. I teach the number system to those who want to know which chords fit in each key. This includes the number system which is the method that MOST performing musicians use while they write, play gigs and tour.

Music theory is an extremely important tool in the journey of becoming a better musician. Learn the basics of key signatures, scales and scale qualities, intervals, chords, harmonic qualities (major versus minor), rhythm, etc. etc. Knowing these elements and how to use them will help you express emotion and create tension in a song.

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

I have a firm background on music theory, so I am able to explain everything that I am teaching.

About Paul

I cannot say enough good things about paul. First, despite having so many years of playing, he doesn't judge or look down on you for not having the same level of knowledge he has. Instead - he is able to communicate concepts, both basic and advanced, to you in a way that you can understand. Second, he caters to you in order to achieve the goals you want to achieve, not the ones he thinks you should have. Lastly, he's clearly passionate about playing, and music in general. he's a great guy to chat about, seems really down to earth, and goes above and beyond in order to make the most of the lesson.

I cannot say enough good things about paul. Highly recommend you take his lessons!

As a young female, I was apprehensive about choosing a male teacher that teaches in his home. However, Paul has been professional and I have not had any concerns since meeting him and working with him. He is a well-planned, experienced teacher who artfully progresses students from week to week in a manner that is constructive and fun. In only 5 weeks I have learned more about playing guitar and guitar theory than I would have thought. He has been attentive to my goals and it is precisely the experience that I pay for.

Not only Mya is the best Italian teacher I've had (she's very detailed oriented and helps me tremendously with my pronunciation) but she's also an experienced and skilled music teacher.

"Shon Morgan is absolutely the greatest most talented musician and music teacher I have ever had the privilege of learning from and playing music with. I am a drummer/guitarist/vocalist. We did some touring gigs together in our earlier years and he was already amazing back then. He sat down and taught me the circle of fifths off the top of his head in one conversation. I learned so much just playing along side him. So not only is he an amazing player, but he is also very well suited and experienced as a teacher. He is the most knowledgeable musically but patient and kind personally. He plays and teaches multiple instruments and vocals really well but he stands out tremendously on bass guitar! You can not go wrong having Shon Morgan as your teacher, period!"

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …
