so far so good. very happy my son involved in online lessons with JAMES! thank you
Chris C.
I took around 15 lessons for bass guitar with James and really enjoyed it. James was able to tailor the experience for what I wanted, which was heavy on music theory, but still made sure we applied the theory to the instrument. I had prior experience with some music theory and playing, but hadn't touched my bass in almost 10 years. James was able to figure out exactly where to pick up, provided great materials, and kept me engaged. James is very knowledgeable, a great player, and a cool cat.
Tom
James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays.

Private Music Theory Teacher

I've been studying music theory for six years, and I've been a music theory tutor for three years. I currently study music theory pedagogy at the Peabody Institute, and I am a graduate assistant for the music theory department.
Music theory is a mathematical approach to music, and can successfully be taught to every type of learner. I have experience teaching student just beginning, studying musical form, counterpoint, atonality, and ear training. Music theory can be abstract, but it improves the understanding and appreciation of music to a listener, composer, and performer.

About Madeline

Hello! I'm Madeline, and I'm a vocal director, vocal instructor, beginner-piano teacher, and music theory tutor. I love introducing students to new repertoire, showing them a different way of looking at concepts, and helping students realize how smart and talented they are. I want my students to fee

I initially chose Madeline because of her academic and pedagogical background and have been very happy with my choice. I've continued with my biweekly lessons because she has made lessons fun, fruitful, and is, simply, a great teacher.

Starting as a 29 year old guy working and studying full time, I was hesitant on many fronts to start lessons. That being said, Madeline's teaching style is such that I never felt bad about occasionally not having time to practice but always felt motivated to do so because she genuinely seems happy for me when I do and because of that I've seen progress.

Lessons are always tailored to my specific needs and she lets me work on music which I am excited to. Not only is she adept at musical pedagogy, but did a great job at the interpersonal level of making me feel at ease during my initial lessons to the point which I don't feel angst singing and being heard by other people--something which was difficult for my shy self.

Overall it has been a great experience that I'm very happy with and would sincerely recommend.
Kate
I have loved my lessons with Madeline and I initially met with her once every other week. I enjoyed the lessons so much, and felt I was making such progress toward my goal of singing in a choir, that I moved to meeting on a weekly basis. I received Madeline’s name from our choir director and I am so happy to be working with her!
Luke
Always enjoy voice lessons with Madeline! She works with you to help you learn at your own pace and is genuinely interested in what inspires you musically.

When lessons shifted from in-person to online due to COVID restrictions, Madeline helped to make the transition easy.

About Kris

As a life-long student of music I know how overwhelming the subject can be. In my classical piano roots no one taught me how music really worked or how to write. After ten years of study I became highly proficient at reading the notes on the page and moving my fingers to play them, but I hit a wall

Jason
I feel so lucky to have discovered Kris on TakeLessons. Every lesson begins with him checking in on my progress in a variety of different areas and every lesson ends with notes of our session and different areas for me to practice before our next session. There's always a great mix of homework types that Kris lets you explore in a way that is organic and fun for how you want to learn. He will work with YOU to help find the lessons that inspire you to keep practicing and staying engaged. We also spend a decent amount of time on music theory and composition, so I feel like I'm actually learning the instrument and not just following patterns. Lastly, Kris has a high level of empathy and is great at encouraging his students. He always makes me feel good about the progress I'm making while still challenging me to be better. I can't recommend Kris enough.
Hershey
Kris is great .. always positive and upbeat. Clearly is masterful at understanding music theory and its applications to the piano. Working at a rapid pace and after just 3 lessons, I feel like I understand the piano. I would say that my understanding of some music theory (as a guitarist) helps me keep up with Kris, but he is a great listener and pauses when necessary.
Nicole
Amazing instructor. I've come so far from working with him.

She’s such a wonderful instructor. After only a few lessons, my voice has DRASTICALLY improved. Even when my self esteem isn’t there when I sing, she always lifts me up and boosts my confidence. I am very happy with her work and will continue my lessons.

"I was a music student at Azusa Pacific University and Adam Tune helped me with Music Theory for two semesters. He is very knowledgeable of the subject, and has a clear, friendly, and logical teaching approach that makes the experience fun. He can explain topics and concepts in a way that is easy to understand.
He is also very knowledgeable in music composition, arranging, and in the use of Logic Pro software that he could use while teaching theory."

"By far the best teacher I have ever had. Paul makes lessons engaging, and his wealth of knowledge never comes off as elitist. He explains complicated theory in a practical way for anyone to understand. If I wasn't leaving Chicago I would have signed up for ten more lessons. Ask him about the own music he makes with his band. He's a super talented guy!!!"

"Jimmy is a great instructor. He takes you seriously no matter what you skill or knowledge level is. When I started with Jimmy I could play guitar but generally only Cowboy chords.

Jim was patient, he analyzed how I played , what I knew and he tailored lessons around what I knew. That way I got the most out of my time and money spent. I can go on and on about Jimmy but for you sake I'll just say that I highly recommend him"

"I play in a rock band that wanted to add some Sinatra type jazz songs to our repertoire. I was tasked to play bass with which I had very little experience. I decided to take some lessons with Gary to learn a little jazz theory and technique. He was a wonderful teacher. He focused in on exactly what I needed quickly and pointed me toward resources that I could use to improve. Despite my limited abilities, Gary was always patient and displayed good humor. When I needed him to write a bass line for me quickly so that I could take it on vacation, he made the time to make sure that I had what I needed. I enjoyed our lessons and recommend him highly. Gary is a teacher who truly cares about his students."
