Music theory is indispensable knowledge for anyone wanting to produce music; it provides the musician a valuable framework for thinking about how to construct your compositions.

I've studied music theory extensively at the high school, college and graduate levels, and I've taught music theory to high school students for over 8 years.

My theory lessons are flexible-studies can be done through traditional music notation (valuable for AP Music Theory Students) or in MIDI piano roll (valuable for computer music producers).

Learn how to construct chords, how to write melodies, how to work with rhythm and more.

About Matt

Hello, I'm looking for dedicated students who have a deep desire to succeed in music. Taking lessons from me means that you'll be getting individualized instruction from a teacher with an excellent combination of teaching experience and real world success in music. I've taught as a licensed and

Matt has been amazing. He's an absolute expert and has a great teaching style. I'd recommend him to anyone. For real, it's been awesome learning so much and he's made me a much better musician.
Christian
Matt does a great job of adapting his instructions to match where the students knowledge is currently. I started taking lessons from him after spending a few years learning bits and pieces of ableton on my own. Matt quickly figured out where I was, what I can do to improve what I've learned, and helped me make steps moving forward. No matter you're experience level I can't recommend learning from Matt enough. I leave every lesson with so much more knowledge than before that I can immediately start applying to my own work and work flow. Thank you Matt! Looking forward to many more lessons.
Chris
I have done several "music production" lessons with Matt online. He is extremely flexible, which has been a big plus for me since I live in Denver and use Studio One 4. Even though his expertise lies in Ableton, the lessons have still been helpful as a Studio One 4 user. Matt is EXTREMELY knowledgeable. He has been able to satisfactorily answer all of my questions. During our lessons, we will work on songs that I am developing. He will listen to the track and suggest areas of improvement. Rather than just telling me what to change, however, he always explains why it would be helpful to make those changes. I've already noticed that I am independently making those improvements in my songs since meeting with Matt. While I can't speak for Matt's other areas of expertise, I would highly recommend taking lessons with Matt for any production/mixing needs!

Music lessons should be fun, encouraging and full of music that you love. They are an opportunity to learn something new, show your improvement, and receive correction, encouragement and praise. Students and instructors should play together frequently throughout and the time should be balanced with theory, technique and exercises, sight-reading, and performance and seasoned with introductions to a variety of music and styles. I like to encourage students to play because they love to play and to find the music that is an integral part of their soul, then to share that with others through performance. What do you want to do with or gain from your music? We will work toward your goals.

Online Music Theory Teacher

As a Classically trained vocalist, I have come to understand that the art of creating music is aided immensely by a strong understanding of music theory. My primary objective in teaching theory is to inspire students to become self-motivated musicians with the desire to want to know how and why music functions. Of course, theory is a means to an end, and whether writing or performing is the students goal, I am hear to help!

At the start of each semester I set clear and reachable course goals that instill in my students a curiosity for knowledge and experience. Together, we will work from the ground up, building a strong theoretical foundation. For younger students, I like to keep my students engaged with fun singing, drawing, and coloring activities that keep learning fun. Through worksheets, written examples, and recordings I will build an individualized lesson plan for each student that meets his or her needs.

Kasey is a wonderful, talented, and encouraging teacher! She knows her craft and provides excellent instruction in a warm and friendly manner. She is extremely patient yet challenges her students to do well to meet their full potential. She is a lovely and hard working person and I so enjoy taking lessons with her!
Joseph
Kasey has been working with my daughter for 3 years now. I have watched my daughter gain confidence while making tremendous progress. Kasey is organized, caring and confident in her teaching. My daughter respects Kasey and enjoys going to her weekly lessons. I highly recommend Kasey as a voice teacher
Sheila
Kasey is a wonderful teacher. Before taking lessons with Kasey I had to stop singing for more than 5 years due to illness. She was amazing at safely bringing me back to vocal health. I am now able to sing light opera and folk songs even better than I used to. I am impressed with her level of knowledge and she really motivates me to work hard at my craft. She is truly the best teacher that I have ever had and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to be the best singer that they can be.

As a cello performance major in college, music theory courses were a requirement for my degree. Having earned a bachelors degree and now working towards my masters degree, I have studied and taken courses from the very basics to more advanced theory. Please email me if you have any questions! I hope to hear from you soon.

About Victor

My name is Victor and I have been actively teaching cello for the past 7 years. In Ames, IA I had a studio of 8 students, all ranging from different age groups and abilities. I also have experience teaching online lessons, which require a slightly different approach than in person lessons. I recent

My 9 year old's first cello lesson. She loved it. A great teacher with a lot of patience, insight and tact.
Julia
Victor is a wonderful teacher. He’s very patient and focuses a lot on the important fundamentals. I’m an adult student and he was very encouraging and helpful.
Peter Ruland
As a 40 year old beginner I was a little nervous about the whole online experience as well as starting a new instrument. Victor makes the online teaching experience seamless. Victor is calm, thoughtful and patient. He always finds a way to explain something in a way that relates to me specifically. To do this someone must be able to listen as well as teach. This is quality I have not found in all of my teachers/instructors/coaches throught the years. Victor is also easily the most flexible of any teacher I have had. He always finds a way to accommodate my schedule and works around any issues that arise. I have really enjoyed my learning experience thus far and look forward to each lesson. I would not hesitate to recommend Victor to anyone looking to learn the cello.
