Why study music theory?
I believe that studying music theory is very important. It’s about deepening your grasp of music and how it works and developing independent music making skills, so that when you see a piece for the first time you understand it more fully, you see how it fits together and what you need to do to begin playing it.
How can I help you?
Most of all I’d like you to enjoy learning music theory and having music theory lessons and I want you to feel that you have a say in what we do. So, my approach is a flexible one based on what you want to achieve. I do use tutor books during lessons, but I also like to use additional resources I have created myself in order to aid your understanding. If you feel that’s what you’re looking for then why not get in touch with me and let me know your music theory goals.
Frequently asked questions
Where do music theory lessons take place?
I teach one to one or small group music theory lessons at my home in Fulwood. I also teach online lessons.
How much does it cost to have theory lessons?
A 30-minute individual lesson coasts £16 and this is what most pupils have. However, I’m happy to teach lessons of 45 minutes or an hour, or for very young pupils a 20-minute lesson might be the ideal way to start. I ask for lessons to be paid for a half term at a time.
I’m interested. What do I do now?
Please contact me and tell me what you’re looking for. Then, if you’re happy to go ahead, we can arrange a one off ‘taster’ lesson so you can meet me, experience how I work and decide if you’d like to carry on having music theory lessons with me.
