Robert Boer, your music theory teacher.
"Teaching Music Theory has been part of my music education career for 30 years. It is safe to say that the theory of music holds no secrets for me anymore.
Being able to make a student deeply understand the subject matter is a gift teachers have, and it can also be further developed by doing. Therefore, my 30 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.
Suppose you study music theory with MTO; you don't only hear and see explanations, but you will also be involved in the highest level of personal attention, ask questions, and get to do activities that will help you understand the subject matter. Last but not least, you will learn to apply the learned knowledge to daily tasks that musicians deal with. Your process of learning will be inquiry-based so that you are genuinely involved in your learning process".
