Music Theory

Practical music theory for beginners and intermediate

All my teaching from beginners onwards includes showing how music is actually created, understanding chords and simple composition and improvisation, advancing as you advance.

Development for advanced and professional musicians

If you are already play keyboards or another instrument, or you are a writer; and whether you are self - taught, classically trained or come from a production background, there comes a point where a bit more understanding of one sort or another can help. So if you want to play in different styles, read chords instead of dots (or indeed vice versa), master boogie woogie, discover improvisation or just write better music then I'm keen to help - give me a call.

Areas of music study include:

- The underlying principles of chords and harmony - basic and advanced reading from chords - how to adapt chords to different playing styles - writing and playing in different styles - approaches to improvising - simple, intermediate and advanced jazz and associated musics - how great (and awful) tunes are written - developing your technique to keep up with your new-found genius - music arranging.

Many players and writers have a broad but slightly disorganised understanding of how it all fits together, but rest assured there is a way of looking at music that makes sense of it. By dismantling music to it's basic building blocks, and seeing how different kinds of music use these, you can approach any kind of music from Baa Baa Black Sheep to modern jazz with understanding and confidence.
