Private Music Theory Teacher

Music Theory can be difficult to learn and understand but in lessons we will learn how to understand the basics and become proficient in it. Understanding the basics of theory can have major impacts if you want to do music in the long run.

We will cover the major scale and three minor scales. Identifying the basic chords that make up a lot of the pop music you hear these days. We will cover cadences, learning how songs end. There will be extensive work on ear training also as this can really help you as the musician excel in your craft and become a top notch player/singer.

About Daniel

Hi there, I have been a musician all my life. Started singing when I was four years old. I started playing piano and clarinet early on in life before adding the trumpet, trombone, and eventually the drum set. I've had a great time doing music as it allows me to share my talent with others around

Daniel was a very hard working student at Melrose-Mindoro Schools. He was my student in choir and performed solos and ensembles for solo/ensemble festivals. He also was in state honors choirs and one national choir in 2011 under Rollo Dilworth.

I am a retired voice and piano teacher with 45 years of experience including teaching on the High School and university levels as well as performing in concerts and Opera and (still) serving as a Church Musician. Daniel Schlegel was one of my most advanced high school students in applied Voice. He was a talented, hard-working all-round musician and always a gentleman. I helped to prepare him for several auditions and concerts in which he excelled. Some of my most memorable occasions of performing with Mr. Schlegel were accompanying him in vocal competitions and especially at venues in Ireland, where he was warmly received by the Irish listeners. I believe that with his additional training, work ethic and experience teaching young people he would be a fine choice as a voice teacher.

I have had the opportunity to observe Daniel teach Middle School students. He his an outstanding teacher. He pays attention to detail and gets the most out of them. There is never any wasted time and he has a heart fro young people and their music. I highly recommend him as a teacher for your child!

Patient, focused, encouraging and time efficient. He was good at keeping our youngster on task and making the experience fun. Wish he was able to take our child further with piano. I don't know how much was Tyler and how much was our child, but our kiddo learned quickly from Tyler. Thank you Tyler!

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.

Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

"He's a great tutor and a very nice guy. He was very understanding and flexible with scheduling, despite my multiple last minute cancellations and his teaching was well worth the wait. His teaching method might be slow at first, but it's clear he definitely knows his music theory and music history. Even though it's a little slow at first, he does help establish the basics and provide a more thorough understanding of the subject matter. Moreover, it made retaining the knowledge that much easier. It's also clear that he has a clear passion for the subjects he teaches and it bleeds into his teaching, which makes the subject considerably less dry and boring.

I'd highly recommend him to anyone who is just beginning music theory and/or piano playing as you'll pick up a solid foundation in these subjects. He is also extremely patient, making sure I understood the initial concepts before moving on to more complex topics. I just wouldn't recommend him for any last minute cramming: as he does like to take his time to provide a quality learning experience rather than just reviewing and memorizing."

"David is awesome! 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."

"Albino is an amazing teacher and musician. He has the ability to inspire you musically and make you feel very comfortable while doing it. He has taught me many new approaches, tips, and tricks to music theory. He has helped me to be able to really understand why things are the way they are, and not just figure things out on paper like an equation. Definitely the best tutor I've ever had! I'd highly recommend him."

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …
