Learn to express yourself musically

Build connections with others through music

Develop pattern recognition strengths

Develop Fluency with musical languages


Music theory work enriches your experiences of one of the most beautiful and powerful languages: music. 


Work in music theory also can enhance college applications, with the potential for Advanced Placement Exam credits, ABRSM achievement levels, and music-based portfolio projects.  Students learn about music from the inside-out, on a level deeper than they study in band, orchestra, choir and music lessons. 


Lessons are weekly or twice-weekly, in 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions, depending on student goals.  Tuition is billed by either a simple pay-by-the-month or pay-by-the-lesson structure, your choice.  Students will need a book, music staff paper, and either a piano, a keyboard or an online keyboard app.

Bonnie writes custom homework assignments, depending on the needs and goals of each student.  Assignments can range anywhere from simple ten-minute reviews to deep in-depth work of 1-2 hours.
