Why You Need a Music Theory Tutor

Are interested in learning about the background of music?  Music theory is a great place to start. You will study the practices and possibilities of music, and learn how musicians and composers create music. You’ll essentially learn the language of music that all composers understand. A music theory tutor can help a student open up lines of analysis and critical thinking behind all the different types of music. Explore the roots of music and how it can change a mood or symbolize some of the deepest darkest emotions. Spending time with a private music theory tutor can be a great place for a student to find a true connection and understanding of music.

Music theory is a crucial study that any future musician needs to understand. No matter if they want to take music seriously or simply want to play an instrument for fun, music theory will make their musical lives a lot easier. Without music theory, no one would be able to read music so in other words, there would truly be no music. Having your child take on music theory might sound like something that is boring. They probably just want to play their instrument, but without the ability to read music and understand what they are reading they will not actually be able to play. Since it can be a bit dull with the wrong teacher, music theory tutoring is the only way for your child to learn. It is important for them to retain the information so that they can begin their journey as a musician.

If you are in high school and have been playing for a while or simply just picked up an instrument you must understand music theory. Any dreams of joining the school band will drop dead if you do not know how to read music. “Music theory tutoring near me” or a “music theory tutor near me” will help you get to where you need so you are comfortable no matter what music your instructor puts in front of you. It does not matter how great you are at your instrument if you want to join a high school band you need to be able to read the music the conductor provides. When you learn the actualities of music theory and are able to communicate in this musical language, you will truly gain the much-needed confidence to be a fine musician. You might even find that music is something you actually want to pursue.

If you are in college chasing a career in music, you are probably enrolled in a music theory course. Reading music may have been something that you find to be easy, but writing it is an entirely different story. If you find yourself not being able to keep up you need to find a music theory tutor. When you go through HeyTutor you will be teamed up with a tutor who can break things down for you in a way that makes sense. This is something that takes time, but with the right tutor, you will be able to calm down and figure out how to write your own music.

This is a skill that you can keep with you for the rest of your life, and ideally, that is what will happen when you are matched up with one of our music tutors. Being a serious musician means that you need to study all aspects of music. Playing your instrument is just one aspect and reading music that others have written is another. But when you are able to play your own music that you have composed it sets you up for several potential opportunities in the future.

Any working musician knows that the more skills you have the better off you are in a dog eat dog industry. Everyone is always looking for the new thing so being able to compose your own music will put you in a category that creates lasting success. Music theory is the stepping stone you need to truly launch your career to the next level. Our tutors can make sure you have a strong grasp on music theory so you can use your lessons to build a lasting career in an industry that is highly entertaining.

Benefits of Hiring a Music Theory Tutor

Professional music theory tutors are privy to different music literature and styles, which can help your child discover the true essence of music theory. Having a tutor who not only gets music theory but can also teach it is a real advantage for your student that creates a one of a kind learning climate. It is difficult to find someone who can do both and do both well, but at HeyTutor we have made it easy on you. Music theory is something that is dense in subject matter but can be understood if taught in the correct manner. There is no one way that our tutors approach teaching which truly helps bring out the best student in you. Our tutors want to help you become a true student of music and it starts with your understanding of music theory.

Group sessions are always tough, especially for a child. They already have to go to school the last thing they want to do is to feel like they are back in school for an extracurricular activity. On top of that, there are so many distractions that arise when in a group session with other students. Our tutors also know that not everyone is going to enjoy music theory at first glance. It can seem bland especially if there are no instruments involved. Our tutors understand this as fact and look to make it so your child can have fun while learning. Music is supposed to be fun, especially for a child, which is something that our tutors will highlight during the sessions. If your child is having fun and enjoying the lesson plans they are far more likely to remember it down the road when they start their music careers.

Studying music in college is no joke. There are many fun courses but you are also going to be challenged, and one of the most difficult challenges is music theory. For instance, you may have gotten into the school of your dreams based on your musical talent alone but you never truly took things like music theory seriously. Then you enroll in school and find out that you must take several music theory courses, this may cause you to want to drop out. At HeyTutor we can help you out in ways that would otherwise not be possible in a standard college class. You might find yourself not wanting to ask questions in class because you feel uncomfortable in the setting. Our professional tutors will create a lesson plan around you that will put you in your comfort zone. This is ripe for you to figure out music theory and unleash your potential as someone who can truly read and write music.

If you have always been able to read music well but want to partake on an adventure to learn how to compose HeyTutor can help guide you. Your lessons will be based on your needs so the focus will be on your writing. Our general music tutors do not have just one way of teaching so yours will be particular to who you are as a musician. Working with a top of the line tutor who also truly understands music theory will help you take steps toward composing your own music. This is not something that is easy or something that will just happen overnight. You will have to put in the work and listen to your tutor while also doing the lessons. If you do these things and are as passionate about learning music theory as your tutors are about teaching it to you, there is absolutely no reason why you should not progress and achieve your goals.


Another benefit of working in a one-on-one environment is learning the fundamentals of music theory at your own pace no matter how slow or fast you want to go. Our tutors dedicate their effort to your learning, composing, and succeeding. They truly want to make sure you succeed, not only in your class but in your musical expedition. With that being said, you know “I need a music theory tutor” so search hundreds of profiles today to find your perfect tutoring match. At HeyTutor we will form you into the music theory master we know you can be one day.
