On one occasion, she was 15 minutes late. Tonight she just didnt show up. No phone calls, no texts, no email, no nothing, just no show.

Victoria is very knowledgeable and was very engaged throughout the lesson. She asked good questions to assess my goals and playing level, and tailored the lesson appropriately. I am looking forward to my next lesson.

I specialize in working at the student's pace and needs, typically use personal material that is skewed towards the student's level.

Leanna is incredible. She's kind and patient and extremely easy to work with, which is rare for someone with such deep experience in a field. One thing that continued to stand out and amaze me is her unbelievable ear. Even in remote sessions via zoom, she could tell immediately if one note in a chord or progression was off, and helped me fix it. I've heard the same from other students of hers.

If you're a serious student, considering music as a career, or in any competitive sense, Leanna is an irreplaceable ally with the skill to push you further than you may have thought possible. Absolutely recommend.
Zachary
As a beginner, taking lessons with Leanna has offered a structured approach to learning the fundamentals of piano, along with developing good technique, which has made the process less daunting. After only a couple of lessons, I feel more confident not only in my playing, but also in understanding elements of music theory (like reading sheet music) that I expected to be more difficult to grasp.
Sonya T.
Excellent goal-oriented teacher! Leanna is able to provide effective feedback and instruction to an advanced student like myself. I was impressed with the detailed coaching provided in the online environment.

Private Music Theory Teacher

As a music teacher (Guitar, Piano and Drums) for over 10 years, I understand the fear many students have of music theory - it's a vast and imposing subject! But it doesn't have to be.

I teach all levels of theory in harmony, melodic construction, composition (jazz and contemporary pop/rock/r&b) as well as rhythm. I always ground the concepts we study in real life applications, I don't waste too much time on unnecessarily tedious or vague concepts. I believe music theory should serve a function not just make you sound smart! I love helping students demystify advanced concepts like modes, extended harmony, creating melodies, advanced rhythms, polyrhythms and subdivisions - and I love watching students gain the confidence and appreciation that comes with study of music theory.

If you study with me, you can expect to be challenged to grow every lesson but always supported and never rushed or intimidated by new ideas.

About Chresten

I have been a performing musician for almost 20 years and teaching for over 10 years. I consider myself a multi-instrumentalist, my first instruments were the drumset and piano and I began studying guitar in my teens. My love of music has led me to study a wide range of subjects, but my primar

Chresten is a fun and informative teacher. The pace is a little faster but challenged me to move forward. Patient and takes the time to go over any questions asked. Very thorough. Thank you.

Really nice class on topics I was aware of but not particularly experienced at... Chresten was fast but not too fast....he explained things over and over, aive us time to sample it, and then gave us pieces to practice on!

Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

Private Music Theory Teacher

A somewhat controversial topic in guitar instruction. Many people are adamant about not learning music theory because they either A.) say it doesn't apply to them or B.) are afraid it will tamper with their creativity. I understand where both of these mindsets stem from but I personally believe they are both wrong.

I have been through 4 years of college music, which includes 2 years of music theory and I can safely say that yes, there is definitely a point where music theory stops being useful and starts to become more of a thing you can use to impress your friends and nothing more. The great thing about music theory is that you don't have to get anywhere near that level of knowledge to reap immense benefits in your playing and writing.

A simple knowledge of chord progressions, chord voicings, keys, scales, and note choice can turn a bunch of cool sounding chords that you were messing with, into a chord progression that you not only understand what it is but also why it sounds

About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 29 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces

I had an awesome first lesson with Christian, and I intend to have many more.

He is clear and thorough in his explanations, he checks in to ensure I'm understanding his instruction, and he is genuine in his efforts to help me reach my goals.

I'm looking forward to having my guitar technique and knowledge improve under his instruction.

Christian has gone above and beyond my expectations for a guitar teacher. I feel very lucky to have found him as an instructor. My music and guitar knowledge has grown leaps and bounds over the past year. I highly recommend Christian!

Christian is great. Excellent communication and knowledge of the guitar. Most importantly, his enthusiasm for the guitar is infectious. I'm very much looking forward to my next lesson. Highly recommended.

Private Music Theory Teacher

Music theory is the basic foundation for every good composer and songwriter. There's a lot to learn and a lot that can be used in your own music. Even if you only want to play guitar and not write music, music theory can help you be a better improvisor, increase your harmonic knowledge, and play better in group settings.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time. I currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie O'Brien

"When looking for an instructor what is best to find is knowledge of the subject. When it comes to Mr. Newbold, he delivers; Whether it be current or past. He has had outstanding experience with acclimating to every student's needs and learning style. He provides a great environment/atmosphere which is critical to learning. If his credentials don't speak enough, then his personal musical talent should."

"I've been taking lessons with David for more than 2 years, he's amazing... he's very knowledgeable, patient, knows how to explain difficult concepts and can adapt to a broad range of topics, covering different areas that I'm interested on, including music theory, songwriting, guitar and bass, and music production.

David is both a professional musician and an experienced instructor, and you can tell the difference that makes in every class.

We started with at-home classes, but switched to online during the pandemic and that's working pretty good for me to.

I'd recommend David to anyone looking to learn a new instrument, get better at it or expand their music knowledge in general."

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory
