Robert Boer, your music theory teacher.
"Teaching Music Theory has been part of my music education career for over 23 years. It is safe to say that the theory of music holds no secrets for me anymore.
Being able to make a student really deeply understand the subject matter is a gift teachers have. It can also be further developed by doing. Therefore, my 23 years of experience have given me countless opportunities to polish my craft.
I have experience teaching music theory to musicians from beginning to advanced levels.
