Michael Luck founder of music theory online

Michael Luck, Founder

Music Theory Online (MTO) was set up in 2006 by Michael Luck after many years teaching music theory to students in the UK. Born in the UK he has spent most of his life in Wales and has a passion for music and in particular music theory.  Michael worked part time for the Carmarthenshire music service as a peripatetic woodwind teacher (2014-2019) but specializes in helping students prepare for their Music Theory exams.

Michael is well equipped to aid your learning process via his many video tutorials along with the opportunity to book ‘real time’ one to one lessons. During the last 19 years he has taught the ABRSM theory syllabus via the internet. This is a unique service for students who want to learn music theory online but with all the benefits of having one to one personal tuition. Students have access to a wide range of online resources, and they can try out their skills using online exercises, tests and view over 140 pre-recorded video tutorials.
