Private Music Theory Teacher

I am a full time jazz musician with years of experience using the concepts of music theory in composition and improvisation. I can teach classical based theory as well as jazz. Understanding functional harmony is essential for the music student that wants to “get” what’s going on in their favorite songs and perhaps compose some of their own. I am extremely patient and will work with you and your learning style to set your lesson plan. And we’ll have fun in the process.

About Patricia

Hello! I am a professional musician and guitar/ukulele instructor with over 20 years experience teaching one on one and group lessons. As a child, while learning piano and playing trumpet in the school band I began teaching myself guitar. It quickly became my favorite instrument and I moved on to

I can't say enough great things about Patricia as a teacher. Her love of music, her enthusiasm for the guitar and her deep understanding of harmony were standout qualities that really made her a great teacher for me. I recommend her highly.
Gary
Patricia's forte is rock and jazz but don't rule out contemporary and classical. Her knowledge and flexibility enable thinking outside the box and tailoring lessons to every student's needs. Her lessons are always informative, fun, and will give the student a strong musical base from which to build upon.
Adrienne
Patricia is an exceptional teacher! She is flexible and creative, finding ways to interest all ages with an integrative approach to instruction. Not only is she a top- notch player herself, she makes learning fun and accessible for any level of ability. My family has benefited from Patricia’s expertise for four years and I would highly recommend her to anyone! Whether you are just starting out, looking to improve your playing, or simply perfecting your technique, you will benefit from her tutelage!

Private Music Theory Teacher

Within the first few lessons, you'll learn about basic music theory, notation, rhythm, scales and chords. Later we will talk about chord progression, arrangements, composition and musical genres.
For advanced students we will learn about composition on the fly, the improvisation. For this level you must play an instrument at least on intermediate level.

About Z

I understand that not all of us want to be rock stars, so I teach my students everything they need to achieve their specific goals in music. If you take lessons with me, besides learning playing the guitar you can get a taste of composition, music theory, chord progressions, strumming patterns,

I think it's very important for teachers to be focused on their student's specific goals and needs. If you just need a little help with some music theory homework, I would love to help guide you through that! If you want to work on increasing your understanding of a wide range of musical topics, I will create a plan specifically for you and help you make that progress. I can't wait to get to work with you!

Nathan is the best viola teacher I’ve ever had. His vast knowledge of the instrument allowed him to explain certain concepts in a methodical way that made me feel like I was truly learning. In addition to being a great teacher he is an equally great performer who continues to model exactly what I want to be as a violist. I can not recommend Nathan more!

I really enjoyed my lessons with Nathan. He was really patient with me and helped explain things in ways that worked well for me.

Private Music Theory Teacher

Theory shouldn't be boring and pointless. I love teaching theory in a way that not only makes sense, but is immediately applicable to music and actually helps you be a better musician.

I teach theory in a couple different ways: the cheapest way for you is a 15-minute lesson where we go over some specific topics, and then I give you a bunch of stuff like podcasts, YouTube videos, and handouts to digest and come back with next week as I explain whatever is confusing to you.
The other way is to have a full session where we apply theory to your instrument of choice--you still might get homework, but most of the work will be done in lesson.

And of course, all of my instrumental lessons will have theory included in them as well.

Theory is supposed to be a tool, not a torture device!

About Sylvia

"Ahmad is an amazing teacher to say the least!! I've playing guitar for years with never a full grasp of harmony, and within a few short hours he caught me up on some of the most vital information I was missing. A true expert teacher.. Give him a chance... You won't be disappointed!!!"

"I started taking guitar lessons for the first time 10 months ago and am thankful I found such a great teacher in Ahmad. His positive attitude and love of music helps me stay engaged and lessons are productive and fun.

One of the great things about Ahmad is he listens to you and adjusts lesson content based on the feedback you provide. His ability to listen allows Ahmad to deliver a personalized lesson plan that incorporates your goals and gets you excited about what you are working on.

Ahmad also has taught me techniques to prevent and address minor aches that come up while learning to play. He takes this seriously and shows you how to prevent and resolve any issues that come up.

Overall, taking lessons from Ahmad has been a very positive experience. I look forward to continuing working with him to get better."

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …
