Theory Lessons

All our teachers at Northern Music Academy have music degrees and top grades in their instruments and music theory. You can have your theory lessons either as an accompaniment to your instrumental tuition, or individual lessons to improve your theory for an ABRSM, GCSE or A-level exam.

As well as covering theory generally, often using the ABRSM music theory books, we can also help you with theory specifically for your particular instrument. For example, we could help with chord construction for piano players and guitarists, arpeggios for bassists, transposition for some brass or woodwind players, or use of different scales and notes for improvisation and melody construction.  These are just a few examples of theory related topics we can cover.

Our teachers also have training in composition and can help you with your own song writing and composition in various styles. Some of our teachers can even help you with your lyric writing for your songs as well as compositional techniques and exercises to make you a better composer.
