Although theory is included with both Voice and Piano lessons on a practical level, Theory, Harmony and Analysis are also available as separate lessons – essential when preparing for RCM exams at the 5 through ARCT levels. Lessons are lecture-style and include workbook exercises and quiz. While moving onto new concepts, previous material is reviewed to ensure depth of understanding. Practice exams complete the process for the well-prepared exam student.

Music History lessons are available and correspond to RCM History 9, 10 and ARCT levels. Lecture-style with a listening component of required music; charts and quiz round out lessons for complete exam preparation.

“Thank you for all of the hard work that you put in to helping me understand advanced theory! Your patience and explanations of advanced theory concepts made it a lot more simple to understand. I don’t think I could have ever achieved as high of a level of theory as I did without your help. Thank you so much for your flexibility and time. I truly appreciate it. Thank you, Naomi Naomi A, Theory and History student

“Thank you for teaching me so much about music; I never knew there was so much background and information to the pieces that I played. I’m really going to miss you!” Ruby H, Theory and History student

O Music, lead the way —
The stormy night is past,
Lift up our hearts to greet the day,
And the joy of things that last.

The dissonance and pain
That mortals must endure,
Are changed in thine immortal strain
To something great and pure.

True love will conquer strife,
And strength from conflict flows,
For discord is the thorn of life
And harmony the rose.

from Storm-Music Henry Van Dyke
