Private Music Theory Teacher

I am a composer in addition to a violinist and have written transcriptions for orchestral works and composed pieces for different chamber group types, string and symphonic orchestra, and solo violin and piano. I've also written some electronic music as well. I love composing and I use my theory knowledge often when writing and analyzing music for my violin practice and use theory all the time in my practices. I've started learning music theory and ear training since I was very young, for 10+ years now I've been learning and using it. I try my best to find ways to make the theory fun and connect it to real music you are familiar with to keep it relevant and not simply a pursuit of knowledge. I've helped students who are just starting or who think they have no talent or way of understanding written music to students who are well versed and are looking to hone their skills and knowledge to advance further.

About Fedor

I'm a rising Junior at The Juilliard School. I started playing when five and a half. I attended the Juilliard Pre-College program for two last years of high school before attending Juilliard on the college level. In August of 2013, I became the youngest semi-finalist in the Schoenfeld International

Jennifer is an absolutely amazing instructor. She is not only knowledgeable of her craft but engages and cares about her students. She is skilled to help any voice part at any age and actively goes out of her way to learn what she doesn’t know to best help her students. I loved taking lessons with her.

She is a very talented teacher.

Sarah is an excellent flute instructor! Learning online during COVID has been a great experience. Sarah has found ways to make it easy - such scanning her notes to me and sending me recordings after the class. Her lessons are exciting, as I have been working on music I enjoy in addition to music Sarah recommended. I definitely recommend her for online lessons. I look forward to when we can return in person too.

Carlos definitely earned a 5 star rating! Bought lessons for a friend as a gift after I watched a couple of his YouTube videos. Before and after bookong, he was communicative and flexible on scheduling. My friend just took her first lesson and could not contain her excitement! Said she learned more in 45 minutes than she had in for plus years. She plans to continue learning from him. Thanks Carlos!
Charles W.
Coming from piano, the guitar has always seemed daunting to me. Prior to my lessons with Carlos, I had tried to teach myself songs/chords without much luck. Fortunately for me, Carlos turned out to be an extremely patient, friendly and competent teacher - I immediately knew I’d be progressing quickly with him! His qualifications speak for themselves, but I can’t recommend Carlos enough.

"Music Theory and Music Performance

Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music."
