John Clark Music Tuition

Music Theory

You can play a song by slavishly following the chords, but with a smattering of music theory you can expand your playing and improvisational skills considerably, so as you progress with your chosen instrument, I will discuss appropriate aspects of music theory and their application to your playing.


Music theory is an integral part of all grades, performance levels and diplomas that I teach, and so will be covered as part of preparing you for the examination.

Additionally, the Registry of Guitar Teachers and the London College of Music offer graded examinations in Popular Music Theory, and I can offer tuition at Preliminary Grade and Grades 1-8.

The London College of Music also separately offers Theory Of Music graded examinations, and I can offer tuition at all grades and at diploma level.
