GTC has been teaching music theory lessons in Sydney for over 5 years. Our tutors have studied music at the highest level and have years of experience teaching students of all ages. During this time we have developed an approach to teaching the theory of music that makes lessons engaging for students at any level. We know that sheet music isn’t always the most exciting thing to master, but we know how to get you there in a fun way while learning about your favourite music and developing pitch and rhythm skills at the same time. At the end of each term we are certain you will have learnt more than you could have imagined!

After you have studied music theory you will start to develop a much more in depth understanding of the music you listen to. It will inform your overall music education as well as music performance and composition. Private music theory lessons are often taken in combination with guitar, bass, drums, voice and piano lessons. Instrument tutors may even provide some informal music theory lessons when they deem it necessary for a student’s development as a musician. These lessons will often be specific to your instrument. For example, you may learn the theory behind a particular scale pattern you are practicing on the guitar. Then your tutor may expand on that knowledge to teach you how chords are constructed from scales. 

Some students choose to take AMEB music theory exams, however this isn’t a requirement. Many student just want to learn music theory to expand their general knowledge or come to understand specific concepts like time signatures and polyrhythms. Your music theory tutor will be able to recommend a path to follow based on your interests and skill level. Enrol in one of GTC’s introductory packages today to begin your journey into the world of harmony and rhythm with some of the best music theory tutors Sydney has to offer!

You know your child best! Most can handle a full-hour lesson; however, if you are strapped for time or they are 7 years old or younger and have trouble focussing, looking into one of the 30 or 45-minute lessons may be better. You will quickly find that the more time students spend with their instrument, the better they will become. So we always recommend choosing hour lessons if they can.
