Jennifer is great! Customized the first lesson to match my skill level and goals.
Dave R.
Jen has done a great job with our 8 year old. She keeps her challenged and is continually increasing her skill set. I was most impressed that Jen had her learning both hands right from lesson 1. She's learning quickly and most importantly she's enjoying it.

A vital subject for a performer, the study of music theory allows us to explore the reasoning behind the music we create and possibly create. In sessions, we discuss a variety of objectives, including rudiments, notation, compositional techniques, and ear training.

Taylor
In addition to being one of the most educated, well-versed, and talented teachers I have come across in my 2 decades of performing, his passion for music and all that is art is extremely evident. He instills a faith in his students and co-performers that lets you know he believes in you and your potential, and ensures his dedication in assisting you to learn, grow, and bloom both musically and artistically.
Kelly
I have had Randy as my instructor for over a year and he has helped me develop my singing skills to a level I didn’t think was possible. Even after the first few weeks of class, I noticed a difference in my singing. Randy is extremely knowledgeable and does a wonderful job of teaching. He does well with explaining techniques and makes things easily understandable. He is also very kind, talented and professional. I will always be grateful to Randy because he is helping me to be a singer that I always dreamt of being!
Stephanie
Randy has helped me accomplish my goals. He is an excellent teacher and mentor. He helped me believe in myself by believing in me as well. I highly recommend him!!!!

Online Music Theory Teacher

Whether you sing, play piano, guitar, woodwinds, brass, percussion, or any other instrument, or whether you write, compose, arrange, or direct, an understanding of music theory can help your practice, technique, and performance be easier and more effective. Both classical and popular music follow the same traditional patterns. I will teach you the basics of notes, keys, scales, chords, harmonies, and the other mysteries of musical tradition, not as rules to follow, but as guidelines for how to examine, deconstruct, and make sense of the music you hear, and help you apply it to your own musical work.

I had a great experience learning from Aaron. I was a brand new piano player with no knowledge of the instrument or music in general. Aaron was very patient and diligent in teaching me how to set a musical foundation. If you have the pleasure of working with him you will see why he is so highly rated.

I'm Ahmad a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself guitar at the age of 12. I moved to the U.S. in 2001 and studied music for 15 years receiving my B.M. and M.M in music and audio production at San Francisco State University. I then moved to Los Angeles then studied and trained with John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch and many others. I have performed hundreds of concerts in the U.S. as well in Europe and the Middle East with Artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Michael Angelo Batio, Ratt, Sammy Hagar, Dokken and many others. I ranked #1 in the Slash Guitar Center competition. I was in the "list of top 5 guitar players ever" according to The Examiner, also picked as one of the best guitarists of 2013 and 2014 consecutively in the Rockwell UnScene magazine, and ranked 3rd in the Steve Vai Sam Ash Best in Shred competition.

I've been playing guitar for about 15 years and I've had a few guitar teachers. Ahmad is the best teacher I've had. He is always excited about guitar and music in general. Taking lessons from him has vastly improved my knowledge of music. He is a great teacher and musician!
Ken N.
Very good first lesson
Arlette
Ahmad is very knowledgable in the wide world of music and we can work from classical to rock to ambient! I started taking electric guitar lessons last year and connected immediately. Although I am adult beginner on electric, I did play classical in HS. This is the best mid-life crisis activity and I realize how much fun it is to have this diversion. Ahmad makes me feel like a rock star! If you ever thought about coming back to guitar or are new to the area, I think you will be very pleased! I do online mostly but the location is also central and easy to get to.

"Catherine’s amazing spirit and passion for learning has been keystone in her connections and successes with experts in the brilliantly niche discipline of music and the theory behind it. Her training is evident in her thorough and methodical approach to a variety of anxiety-boding topics such as augmented sixth-chords and proper voice leading between chords. Catherine’s positive outlook and confidence in her students’ success and progress is transparent and provided me with concrete knowledge and skills that allowed me to perform at the highest level of preparation for assessments and assignments. Without Catherine’s attitude, expertise, and personalized attention, I would not have ever been able to get through my prerequisite courses in my undergraduate training. Music Theory is stressful enough— Catherine’s approach makes it all make genuine sense."
