Music Theory

Music theory explains the musical concepts and underlying structure of songs, helping musicians understand what they are playing, and why. Common chord progressions and scales are used throughout the history of music, and identifying these make it easier to learn and memorize the lesson material.

Interested in learning an instrument, or supplementing your current study with private Music Theory lessons?

It is our belief that understanding what the student is playing is key to playing it well. When students identify common musical ideas throughout different songs, they more easily learn the material, and build upon their musical skills. This allows them to more quickly advance in their study, and add more material to their repertoire.

Music Theory lessons are also available to students playing band instruments and taking theory classes in high school. One-on-one instruction focuses on the student's individual needs much more than a group setting, and allows them to excel in their understanding of music theory and all musical studies.
