Music Theory Lessons
"Theory is absolutely essential. It has not only underpinned my advancement on the piano, but has also allowed me to turn my hand to a gamut of other instruments. Jonathan's capable tuition and guidance allowed me to perform admirably in this key discipline."
Why study music theory?
Studying music theory not only enables you to read music fluently but it also gives you the ability to compose music; understanding how scales and harmony work. For those learning an instrument, most exam boards require you to take a grade 5 music theory exam before progressing to the higher practical exams. Having a good knowledge of music theory is also essential for anyone working towards GCSE or A-level music qualifications.
As well as being a concert pianist and organist, Jonathan has over 20 years' experience teaching music theory to pupils of all ages and abilities. He has a DipMusTh(ICMA) diploma in music theory which he gained with distinction.
