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.

About Makala

I have loved music as long as I can remember. I know its cliche© to say so, but it's true! :) For me, having parents of different ethnicity and siblings that were much older than me, I was heavily impacted by the wide variety of music to which my family members listened. The force of this crayon

As a composer and performer, I always encourage players to understand the fundamentals of music…music theory. There are many misconceptions about music theory: it’s too hard, it’s no fun, no one needs it - all wrong! The principals of music are simple, fascinating, and incredibly useful. Whether you took music classes in college or are just getting started with your first instrument, I can help you change the way you look at music. At first, the language of music seems strange and unfamiliar. That’s because it is! But when you take it one step at a time – one foot in front of the other – the meaning behind all the chords and scales becomes clear.

The first thing to learn about music theory is that your ear already knows it. Theory simply describes and gives definition to what your ear already hears. It’s like studying a language. By studying how nouns and verbs work we have a more powerful command of our language. The same is true for music.

Talk to you soon!

Great instructor ! He knows to shift focus towards what you need to work on. As soon as the instructions are given or the questions he asks you feel relief because the energy is going towards what you already feel you need to work on and not just moving on to the next lesson.

As long as your consistant with receiving his lessons you will get where you want to be with your talents and be jammin out soon.

Music theory is an extremely important tool in the journey of becoming a better musician. Learn the basics of key signatures, scales and scale qualities, intervals, chords, harmonic qualities (major versus minor), rhythm, etc. etc. Knowing these elements and how to use them will help you express emotion and create tension in a song.

"I had taken piano lessons as a child but never learned music theory. Claire has patiently taught me about theory in a way that makes sense to me. She listens to my questions and tailors our lessons to aspects that I want to learn. Plus, she is in a band and is super cool! Great teacher!!"

"Catherine always found different ways to explain theory points that I didn’t understand. She always found time to meet with me and definitely put 100% effort even when she was having a recital or in an opera. She is honestly why I was able to pass TP 1, 2, and 3. She is a natural teacher. I am so thankful to have had her the past two years as my theory and keyboard tutor."

"It has been a few years since our daughter, Michaela, took piano and music theory classes from Howard Richman. However, hardly a day goes by when she is not using something that she has learned from him. Whether she is writing a song, composing music, producing a track, playing the piano, singing, rehearsing, performing, etc…it always involves some aspect of her lessons with Howard. She is always referencing material from her classes with him. The enjoyment and confidence that Howard instills in his students, through his methods of teaching, truly must last a lifetime. Going to Howard was one of the best decisions that we have made regarding Michaela's career. In fact, as it turns out, it was a life changing experience for her. Needless to say, we have the very highest recommendation for Howard Richman."

My husband and I are also taking Heidi's Music Theory on-line class which is amazing. We are learning so much. My performance on my flute has improved dramatically since starting my lessons with Heidi. She has so many innovative ideas in regards to teaching. Her compassion for music is very contagious. No matter what the age of the student I feel that Heidi will meet the student where they are and help them grow into the musician they desire to be."
