Throughout time, I've been blessed with learning from fantastic musicians, and it would be my pleasure to pass on my knowledge. Regardless of age/level, I hope to cover more than just music theory, and to introduce the pupil more into the music itself, including covering the background of historic and performance practice of different pieces that would be studied for understanding the musical analysis. As always, I'm open and wish to learn from my student as much as they could from me.
The lesson will cover 4 aspects progressively: learning the fundamental music theory (notes, values, irregular rhythms, notation, intervals, alterations, basic solfege and dictation), cycle of fifths, scales, modes, chords, intervals/chords affiliation in different keys, musical forms, harmonic writing and counterpoint. At the end, I will provide ideas for a study plan for next lesson through small homework, highlighting the goals and aims the student should be targeting for developing and making the most out of their lesson. Dictation and solfege will become progressively harder to train the student's ear. Music theory available in both American/English/German system of notation (letters) and Latin with movable Do (Do, Re, Mi, etc.). I'm also a Romanian speaker.
