Learn notation, the whys and wherefors of music theory. Analyze, and be able to understand those funny symbols in music. Singing or to play an instrument helps for composing.

Ms Serena is a quality teacher with high expectations and rigid policies. My daughter took lessons for approximately six months. During this time, she learned a great deal regarding vocal technique and the physiology behind quality sound and breath control. Ms Serena also guided my daughter through the creative writing process of composing her own song.
Lana
Serena was so kind, encouraging and helpful in beginning my vocal training. She focused on the fundamentals, explaining and answering every question I had, teaching me about proper technique, vocal health, audition etiquette, and more. She was also always willing to listen to how I was feeling and was very kind and welcoming at all times In a very short amount of time, my vocal technique and quality improved, and I now am a much more confident and healthy singer. Serena is amazing!
Lynnette
My daughter and I are very happy with how Serena coached her. Her technical way of teaching has helped Jana , my daughter, understand the mechanics of singing better. We booked the $400/5sessions promo in preparation for my daughter’s competition and we are happy to say that she did very well, thanks to Serena’s coaching.
Serena is very professional, communicates clearly, and is excellent in her craft. It is unfortunate that due to other family affairs, we are unable to continue with her.

Private Music Theory Teacher

everything from basic "square one" (learning note names) to advanced jazz theory (harmonic/rhythmic), transposition, and music transcription (learning by ear and writing it down)… you can also learn to use theory to help you write your own songs. I teach theory to college-level music majors AND I can break music theory down really easily and simply for casual learners.

About Kelly

After 13 years of teaching all levels (I also teach music at Cornish College of the Arts - since 2015), and many different styles of voice and piano lessons, I can tell you this-- I LOVE teaching! My students have ranged from 5 to over 65, from classical piano, or jazz/pop piano, to pop/rock/jazz s

I'm a 49 year old trying to take my piano skills to the next level. Kelly is very patient and after just two lessons I've learned quite a lot. Looking forward to continuing with her and highly recommend.
Daniel
Kelly is easy to connect with and took the time to find out what my interests were so that she could create a plan oriented towards my goals.
Ryder G.
We are return customers to Kelly. My son loved her as a piano teacher but we stopped when he was taking trumpet during school. Now that he’s over trumpet, we excitedly reenrolled with Kelly. She’s so encouraging and positive. We just did my son’s first online lesson through TakeLessons and it worked flawlessly. I’d recommend Kelly in a heartbeat.

Online Music Theory Teacher

For Music Theory, we start with the basics of note-reading and rhythm. As we progress, we learn various music symbols and terms, along with chords, scales, and how to compose harmonies.

I typically use Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory or Fundamentals of Piano Theory by Keith Snell for the theory workbooks. Both series of books do focus on piano as the basic instrument but all the information can be applied to just about any instrument.

About Donna

I have been teaching music for 21 years, both in private lesson and classroom settings. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Shenandoah University & Conservatory and I have experience teaching all age groups, from age 3 through senior adults, and every age in between. I enjoy teachin

As an adult student, I have a toddler and a busy schedule (FT job). I've been taking the Flute lessons with Miss Donna since last May (over a year now). I really appreciate Miss Donna's understanding and flexibility towards my schedule. Also, since we are now having online sessions, she records videos of herself playing the notes for me and sends them to me so I can have the opportunity of practicing duets with her when I have some downtime (mostly late at night). Thank you very much, Miss Donna, for supporting me to pursue my dream of playing the flute. I’ve come a longggg way since last year and this couldn’t have been achieved without your great teaching style, support, patience and wonderful attitude.
Nicole I.
Donna is a really wonderful teacher! She is in tune with your needs as a student and facilitates your lessons accordingly. She also takes the time to listen to your goals as a student as well as your interests in music to play. She teaches with thoughtfulness, patience, and kindness. I would highly recommend her for your piano instruction.

Andy is great with our 3 kids (10, 7, and 5). He customized the lessons for them, while finding the right balance between structure and allowing them to explore the instrument. His patience and sense of humor provide a warm learning experience for our children. We are happy to have him as their teacher!

"Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!"

"The lessons (piano & music theory) I learned from Buzz Amato was the sole reason I got signed to a label & was able to produce 2 Billboard charted singles (which he co-produced with me). I now tour the world djing and produce with talented artists that come to me based off my musical knowledge, that I received from Buzz. I can honestly say NONE of this would happen without the musical instruction of Buzz. Thank you Buzz!"

"By far the best teacher I have ever had. Paul makes lessons engaging, and his wealth of knowledge never comes off as elitist. He explains complicated theory in a practical way for anyone to understand. If I wasn't leaving Chicago I would have signed up for ten more lessons. Ask him about the own music he makes with his band. He's a super talented guy!!!"

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for 3 years and could not ask for a better teacher. He makes my interest grow and has a wealth of knowledge and the patience to share it. He challenges me regularly. I only wish I had found him sooner as previous instructors never had the flexibility or patience that Jimmy has.
Learning in such a relaxed environment has worked very well for me. My son has since started lessons with Jimmy as well and it has become a great experience for both of us."

I had the privilege to work with Melissa when I was a student at Cornish College of the Arts. Melissa was always so dedicated and encouraging towards me and my musical goals. If I had a question she would be right there to help me solve it. Melissa's strongest suit in my opinion is her ability to compose music.
