Beginner's Music Theory
I will help you learn the following skills:
-read a grand staff (treble and bass clef)
-understand moveable C clef
-understand scales, major keys, and the 3 main minor key tonalities
-understand time signatures and note values
-understand key signatures and accidentals
-identify written notes on a keyboard
I will work with you to learn as many of these skills as possible up to 5 hour-long sessions. If you would only like to learn some of these skills, then we can do that as well. Message me to discuss what skills you'd like to learn and how many hours you'd like to spend on learning those skills, with 5 hours of teaching being the maximum I will offer.
Ideally, please have a keyboard of at least one octave, as well as staff paper or a white board and marker to draw staves on.
I can teach in person or via skype, facetime, or google hangouts.
Training & Qualifications
I have played violin for 14 years, trained in classical, mariachi, some fiddling, some Latin jazz, and punk.
I have studied music at Interlochen, Tanglewood Academy, and the Eastman School of Music. Beyond that, free to ask about my mariachi, fiddling, Latin jazz, and punk experience.
Availability & Preferences
Weekends are best for me, but I may be able to fit in other times.
