Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!
Christopher
Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.

I became obsessed with music theory when I started composing music in high school. I have an uncommonly high level of enthusiasm for it and would love to share it with you.

I know music theory basics like the back of my hand. I used to write pieces with Common Practice Period voice leading for fun. I regularly work with classical and jazz harmony, and I have analyzed many pop and rock songs.

Whether you are looking to improve as a composer or songwriter, or to pass a music theory class, I can make music theory fun and relevant for you.

I believe it is very important to understand the why and how behind music. As the student understands music theory in relation to piano, voice, or any other instrument, he/she can start to join the knowledge of music theory with their instrument. When this happens, they are able to see a clearer of picture of the music; and become that much closer to true musicianship.

About Shae

I am an music instructor with 30 years of experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sacred Music with a major in Voice. I have been playing piano for 38 years with having been an accompanist for choirs and soloists and a pianist at weddings and churches. I am a believer that anyone can learn pia

My 2 girls started with Shae when they were 5 years old and both enjoyed their lessons. Shae is patience and good with kids. Even though we don't have the best schedule, the girls liked her so much I couldn't switch to a different teacher even though it could have saved me a few dollars too.
Melissa K.
Shae is a great teacher, she is very patient, and my son enjoys his lessons. We have been with Shae for several years, and it has been fun watching my son's ability grow during that time.

Music is a language of sonic and physical expression. Symbols written and spoken are needed to communicate this art. Basis of composition.

I have a easy step by step system which makes the language self explanatory.
Within a month you could start writing your own music

Ear training a must! Natural call and response rhythm and melody. Movement through music and the physique.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Theory and Composition were my primary areas of study in college, and I currently have a Songwriting Vlog with over 1,000 subscribers. I know how to apply these tools to the Pop/Rock/etc. landscape and I like to help my students also appreciate and use these tools. There are no rules in music, only trends, and it helps to know them.

As a 57 year old student Rich understands life and its commitments. I enjoy the half an hour with him. My appreciation for music has grown with Rich. He introduces me to material I would have never picked on my own. I am still taking banjo lessons because of Rich.
Thank you Rich. Bob
