Kyle’s teaching career began in high school, where he taught independent piano and saxophone lessons. He draws his teaching style from his own professors.

Kyle Griffith became enticed by music theory as a young child beginning piano lessons. As he entered the music composition-theory field in my collegiate years, he found himself assisting many other students with coursework as a tutor would and even took a James Scholar program course that incorporated independent Music Theory tutoring for the underclassmen core theory courses.
He lives in Seattle and enjoys traveling to teach his private lessons, and he is quite flexible with scheduling.
As Beethoven suggested, "Music is one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend."
