by Jonathan Harnum
BA, MA, PhD
Hi. Jon Harnu here. I've got over 40 years on the horn and more than 25 as a teacher, including a Master's and PhD in music education from Northwestern University. I've written 8 music-related books, including the best-sellers The Practice of Practice and Basic Music Theory: How to Read, Write, and Understand Written Music.
I strive for a capable, friendly, and sometimes funny teaching style. I think you'll enjoy these lessons. With lifetime access, it's easy to refer back to lessons for a refresher as much as you need. I recommend it. Someof these ideas take a long time to "stick." It's normal.
