Many learners have enjoyed the study of music theory and immensely benefited from this in their musical development and progression. In the teaching practice of Dr Michael Spacie, music theory is not ignored but convincingly and successfully taught by Michael who is a highly qualified specialist in music literacy, and, with excellent student results.
Music theory is always studied alongside piano studies and also at times with singing studies depending on a singer’s need. It adds an extra skill, which importantly increases musicianship, musical development, musical awareness, confidence and a greater understanding of music itself, thus in turn, enriching the learner and their experience of music and increasing their musical ability whether that be in performing, composing, improvising or sharing music.
- “I started off having singing/sight reading lessons with Mike, which I thoroughly enjoyed and which made me far more confident. I am now taking music theory lessons, and feel I am making good progress – thanks to Mike’s patience and expertise. He is able to explain quite complex issues very clearly, and also gives you additional information which makes music theory really interesting. Lessons with Mike are fun, and I always come away feeling I have learnt a lot.” Professor Sarah Blandy
