Understanding Music Theory/AP Music Theory Test Prep

I specialize in tutoring beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of Music Theory. As a current student at The Berklee College of Music and a long-time violinist, pianist, guitarist, and professional vocalist, I not only have a deep understanding to share about the ins and outs of music theory, I carry a passion for this particular art form as well. Even with the most basic knowledge of music theory, students can find themselves able to play various instruments without having picked them up in the past and extensively understand pieces of music that they may be challenged to play or listen to. My goal is to help students remain curious and share the development of passion that has potential to come with learning the language of music.
