Music Theory tutoring

If you need to learn the theory of music from zero to mastery, or need guidance over specific subjects, this is the right place for you! 

When you play only by ear, you have limited access to the potential of your creativity, since you are missing out the rhythmic, melodic and harmonic possibilities hiding behind your music. This is exactly what music theory does: it helps you to connect the dots between the music played and the logic behind that. Why, after all, a musician that knows the theory is more respected, and gets more jobs also as a freelancer? Simply because it's easier to work with, and that will save time on live shows or in the studio!
