Welcome to TheWholeNote.net ,  a website dedicated to explaining music theory in an easy to understand way. The site includes a section that details how music works and is illustrated with simple diagrams and recorded examples. I hope that you'll find it useful in your musical studies.

I also give lessons in the San Francisco/Bay Area and in the Music Lessons section I describe my approach to teaching music.

If you're interested in my music, listen to the Jazz CD "Look For The Silver Lining", which includes some of my original songs with vocal performances by Rachel Coloff and others. It has a few classic covers as well, including the Jerome Kern song "Look For The Silver Lining", and a tribute to the guitar legend Wes Montgomery.


Please Contact Me with any questions or comments including questions about how music works.
