Music Theory LessonsStudents are encouraged to begin theory studies as early as possible as it takes time to learn the different subjects and prepare for examinations.  Since Music Theory is the more analytical and logical side of music, we recommend that students study it in a separate class environment, so that they can have more time to focus on understanding the musical concepts taught and study them in depth.

We offer private, semi-private and group theory lessons on Rudiments, Harmony, History, Counterpoint and Analysis.
