We can't say enough about our 16-year-old daughter's Broadway singing lessons with Lance. Her confidence sky rocketed after the very first lesson!! She really looks forward to each and every weekly lesson. Our daughter has a strong background in competition dance and has experience in plays, but the confidence from the singing lessons is over the top! She sounds great!

On one occasion, she was 15 minutes late. Tonight she just didnt show up. No phone calls, no texts, no email, no nothing, just no show.

Whether you're coming for roman numeral analysis, SATB chorales, or help analyzing short works, symphonies and preparing for tests, I have extensive knowledge of the inner workings of music. For example, I believe music contains patterns, relationships and structures. I will help you master recognition of these elements through ear-training and harmonic and rhythmic dictation. With my lessons, you can achieve successful SATB part writing and we'll work together so you leave the lesson with not just a modern understanding of theory, but a sense of accomplishment. I also teach Schenkerian analysis, 20th century techniques such as serialism and set theory. In closing, I will give you the tools to bolster you in navigating these concepts so you can understand music on a deeper level and apply your learning to real-world examples, or classroom assignments.

Theory shouldn't be boring and pointless. I love teaching theory in a way that not only makes sense, but is immediately applicable to music and actually helps you be a better musician.

I teach theory in a couple different ways: the cheapest way for you is a 15-minute lesson where we go over some specific topics, and then I give you a bunch of stuff like podcasts, YouTube videos, and handouts to digest and come back with next week as I explain whatever is confusing to you.
The other way is to have a full session where we apply theory to your instrument of choice--you still might get homework, but most of the work will be done in lesson.

And of course, all of my instrumental lessons will have theory included in them as well.

Theory is supposed to be a tool, not a torture device!

"We hired Brian to work with our barely 3 year old to play the drums we got him for his birthday. He loves it! We don’t have any grand aspirations for him, but he likes to bang around and we wanted to give him some direction to see if he latched on to it. Our main objective is that he has fun. Brian is GREAT with him and he looks forward to it every week. 10/10!"

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory
