Whether as a supplement to certificate programs or for personal growth, our music theory and composition private lessons can be custom tailored to the specific desires and aspirations of students. Music theory directly furthers a student’s ability to understand and communicate the full meaning of music. International School of Music theory classes teach the “language of music”, enabling students to learn and memorize faster, improve sight reading, and render informed interpretations. In theory lessons, students learn basic knowledge of note reading in treble and bass clefs, rhythmic values, and simple terminology. As students progress, they are able to recognize and analyze complex harmonic and rhythmic applications in music. More advanced theory covers formal analysis, harmonic procedures, ear-training, and “inner-hearing” as students’ knowledge of music history and literature continues to broaden.

“Thank you so much for transitioning my children’s music lessons to online, as all of their other activities have been canceled. Their music lessons have provided them with so much joy, purpose and structure and it is great to have music in our home during this anxious time.”—Amy S.
