Music theory is extremely important for instrumentalists, composers, and singers. In our lessons you will be able to get help with papers, research, homework, test preparation, composition, or we can learn from scratch in my studio. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice. No experience is necessary, that is what I'm here for!

You can expect to learn strong fundamentals a strong emphasis on sight reading. My teacher told me if you have these two skills, you can get any job, and he’s been right so far.

Things you’ll learn:
-Identifying notes on a board and a staff (bass and treble clef)
-Scales (major and minor)
-Sight reading 2 mallets
-4 Mallet Technique (Stevens Or Burton)
-Chords
-2 and 4 mallet solos
-Musicality, Phrasing, Touch
-Improvisation

There’s so much that can be developed through mallet playing. As we go further into studying, more skills and techniques will be learned.

I hope to start working with you soon! Thank you for taking the time to read through this and I look forward to hearing from you!

4 Drama Games for Method Acting
