Andrew is an excellent instructor. He is really knowledgeable in music theory. I took lessons for only a short time but was able to learn so much, because he used my knowledge of piano to help me understand guitar concepts and he focused on the techniques and songs that I was most interested in.

I've been teaching Music Theory for over 6 yrs.
the basics are expanded into easy to understand steps to help any walk of student grasp the ideas behind Music Theory.
It is best to cater to the student and to introduce in sequence ideas that will help bring a greater understanding of theory.

Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir

All music is written with some guidelines mind. I can bring music theory to you in an interesting and understandable way. I use written work, ear training, and a bit of sight reading to help you master the basics of music. This is more of an academic class and will require some concentration and work, however the pay off is amazing. Music theory is a universal language and can help you connect to other musicians world wide. Contact me and let's talk about what you know and figure out how to expand your theory knowledge.

"Jon is a superb music teacher for adult beginners. He's very encouraging, patient, and knowledgeable. His big smile paired with his easy going personality is very inviting, and his ability to meet his student where they are and keep the lesson on track is where he shined in our session(s). By the end of our first session I had specific goals and recommendations on how to make progress for where I'm at it my practice. I'd highly recommend John to anyone looking to pick up music."

I began lessons with him because i was not satisfied with the music theory classes at the school i am enrolled in, as well as the classes did not accommodate well to my learning differences. David not only has endless knowledge of music theory but also has shown me tools and helpful methods for studying music. I highly recommend taking lessons from David if you are either a beginner or you are at a higher level and would like to expand your knowledge of music theory."
