Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Jens P.

20 lessons

Fortunately, we found Dr. Beth S. who is an amazing music theory tutor. She took my son through the Barron's Guide, chapters 1-16, in about two months with two one-hour lessons a week. She is truly a master of the material, she explains well, and she made my son enjoy music even more than before. Now 10th grade has just started and my son is feeling confident about the topic, thanks to Dr. Beth S. I strongly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn music theory.
Kenneth C.

16 lessons

Dr. Beth has been a great tutor for tutoring AP Music Theory for my daughter, who needs help preparing for taking the AP Music theory test later this year. Dr. Beth has extensive teaching experience on AP Music theory. The online tutoring lessons are effective and time efficient. We are so happy with Dr. Beth's.greta help that we have weekly lessons scheduled until the AP Music theory test.
Angela G.

He says her presentation of the material is clearer and more effective than in his college classes. Under her tutelage, I would say that he is definitely returning to theory classes more confident and so much better prepared. As a parent, you will appreciate Dr. Beth's sincerity in her desire to help and overall professionalism. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced student, if you are looking for help in Music Theory, do not hesitate, contact Dr. Beth.
