Understand music theory: a composer and theory geek with a B.A. in musicology.
I became obsessed with music theory when I started composing music in high school. I have an uncommonly high level of enthusiasm for it and would love to share it with you. I know music theory basics like the back of my hand. I used to write pieces with Common Practice Period voice leading for fun. I regularly work with classical and jazz harmony, and I have analyzed many pop and rock songs. Whether you are looking to improve as a composer or songwriter, or to pass a music theory class, I can make music theory fun and relevant for you.
About Paul K.

I have played piano my whole life, and I also play guitar and trumpet. I love jazz, classical, contemporary, and rock music and many other diverse styles. I am an improviser, composer, and music theory enthusiast, very in touch with the creative side of music. I’m easygoing and patient. I put thought into each individual student and will design a curriculum around your particular interests and needs. I can teach in traditional ways, or I can teach through improvisation, call-and-response, imitation, transcription and other organic and intuitive learning methods. I believe that playing music should be intrinsically rewarding, so I have students play music that they genuinely love. I believe in the value of music listening, having role models, and studying our favorite music. I often play by ear, and believe it is a learnable skill that will help you connect with music more naturally. I hope you'll contact me and we can learn some music together!

Paul took the time to get to know me and my interests, which is valuable to me. Plus he's very knowledgable and has an easy going manner
