I'm an adult learner, and I've been attending weekly lessons for the last 6 months. As a woman, I was originally unsure before going to the lesson, but upon meeting him, I feel totally safe. He is very patient and understanding as well. I'd definitely recommend him.

Becky was a phenomenal instructor! She has a genuine enthusiasm for teaching and music is obviously a large part of her life. She provides great analogies to help her students grasp concepts. And she inquired about my goals and was a great resource for pursuing them. I had to suspend my lessons because life got a little too busy, but if I find the time again, I'd definitely look to return to her for instruction.

Online Music Theory Teacher

Music Theory is the study of the systems in music, typically examining the structure and patterns underneath all music, regardless of genre. These lessons include an assessment of the student's musical theory knowledge, including writing scales/chords/intervals, rhythmic study, writing figured bass, various music terminology, etc. These lessons are most valuable for the seasoned musicians (especially those that perform regularly), and those who are looking to go to the next level in their musicianship (i.e. starting university studies, wanting to explore a new musical genre, wanting to compose music, etc.), however a basic understanding of music theory is a necessity even from the very beginning of one's studies in any musical instrument. Music theory is such valuable knowledge to have and can greatly expand a musician’s horizons and confidence. I enjoy helping my students connect the dots and understand the system that governs music! I incorporate a variety of books and other ...

Finding Beth has been the highlight of our time during Covid-19. We were preparing to start in person piano lessons when Covid-19 started and quarantine stopped that plan. After searching the web high and low I stumbled across TakeLessons and particularly found Beth. She has been teaching my daughter voice and piano lessons for 6 weeks now and I cannot speak highly enough of her!! My daughter has not only learned so much from her about piano technique as well as how to use her voice as a beautiful instrument, but Beth is also such a positive light and gives my daughter tons of self confidence. Her positive attitude and upbeat teaching style are electric. I would recommend Beth to anyone, old or young, beginner or experienced. Her teaching methods work so well even through FaceTime and many states away. My daughter has gone from beginner to reading music and playing the piano beautifully with grace and self confidence!! Thank you Beth!!!

Excellent teaching style+material

Beth is thorough, experienced, understanding, knowledgeable, all on top of being incredibly kind and supportive. In just a few lessons I was already seeing growth in not just my voice but my approach to singing and how I want to explore singing as an individual. More than highly recommended. Thank you!

Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.
Kenjah
I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

"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!"

"When I was third trumpet Dr D was the Drum Major. Our marching and field show bands under NY legend David Bournazian won many local and state competitions. I was just happy to be part of it, but Dr. D was leading it. He has deep knowledge of music theory and is equally expert at improvisation. His ability to communicate theory to beginners or higher level learners is amazing. He has the unique skill of being able to make complex concepts seem simple with illustrative examples until you find yourself starting to 'get it'. Highly recommended."
