Enjoy music theory lessons with an experienced and fun musician.
Ever wonder why theory is important? A lot of people don't want to learn theory or are scared of it. If this is you, I'll explain how to navigate music without using theory while also showing how theory can be a helpful tool. If you're here to learn more about theory because you need to or you're interested in learning more about it, some of the topics I'll cover are listen below. Tailored to your skill level, you'll learn: -high vs low notes -ascending vs descending -sharps, flats, and naturals -key signatures -time signatures -major vs minor -other modes -rhythm and melody -transcriptions -form -chord recognition -intervals -harmonies -transposition -much more! My teaching style is casual, yet theoretical. I'm easy going, but also passionate. I tailor my style and difficulty to match each individual student. If you have any questions or want to meet in person to see if it's a good fit, let me know! :) Alex
About Alex H.

MUSIC: My first private lessons were on piano at 8 years of age with piano lessons, I learned about he basic fundamentals of music (scales, melodies, harmonies, rhythm, time and key signatures, accidentals, etc.). After discovering that rhythms were the most interesting to me, I decided to start drum lessons and fell in love with it. After taking private lessons and mastering my craft, new doors were opened: wedding gigs, an amazing high school band experience, and even performances in Spain and New York. I started teaching in 2012 and developed the comfort to share what I've learned over the years. If the student is willing to work hard, I can provide the knowledge and wisdom to help the student improve.

We’ve had a few lessons with Alex so far, at home and on line. He is really good at what he does and my children are learning a lot from him.

Alex is patient and is able to teach accordingly to a child's level. My son is 8 years old. Alex is very experienced in teaching, he started out with basics, and moved on according to my son's ability to learn. My son learned a lot during his first lesson.
