Billy Lester is teaching lessons in Music Theory as part of his curriculum for all students.
According to Billy:
“As the beginner’s skill grows, we begin to study theory. The bent is towards understanding the harmonic structure of a classical or jazz piece, and also towards jazz improvisation if the student is so inclined.
Listening to music is also on the agenda. Depending on the student’s developmental level, Classical musical from Bach to Stravinsky and Jazz from ragtime to bebop are recommended. Musicians can not live in a vacuum and listening to music is a great way to be inspired.”
Billy Lester is currently accepting new students at his studio in Yonkers, N.Y.
