I’m Dr. Amy, your teaching assistant and dearest theorist!

Let’s use the tools of music theory to build a BRICK HOUSE!

Does this sound like you? 

I want to learn the basics of music, but the last course I bought went too fast for me.

I’m a college student, and I’m struggling in my written theory and ear training courses!

I’m a high school student, and I want to ace the Advanced Placement theory exam.

I want to learn the basics of music, and the last course I bought would have been good if I already had some musical background, but I don’t!

I’m about to enter graduate school, and that music theory entrance exam… boy, Theory IV was awhile ago! How can I prepare?

I can help you with any of those problems!

Whether you barely know what a music staff is or whether you’re reviewing part-writing for that entrance exam, getting started is simple!



Choose your instruction type: in-person or a self-contained course.



Work closely with me as I demystify how music is constructed.



Understand any piece of music like a boss!

"The musical and life lessons Dr. Amy Kennedy provided during my time in her theory courses were vital to my success and growth as a musician and human.  I gained confidence and competence in the musical and analytical skills necessary in the field of music performance and academia.  Dr. Kennedy also supported me outside of the classroom through helping with conference proposals and outside research. Through her guidance and support I have been able to continue with graduate studies in music theory and for that I am forever grateful!"

No matter where you are in understanding music theory, I can help you. 


If you are just looking to learn more about music theory and music fundamentals at your own pace, I have a course for you.


If you played in your school band or orchestra or sang in choir and are looking for a refresher and don’t need to start at the very beginning, I have a course for you, too! 


If you are a high school student preparing for the AP music theory exam or a college student struggling in your theory and ear training classes, I offer one-on-one personalized tutoring.


If you are about to begin graduate school and are worried about the theory entrance/placement exams, I have a review course that can help!
