In the competitive field of
classical music, it is Tom McKinley’s mission to ensure that his students can
take the passion for music that they bring to Lynn and become equipped to
cultivate a lasting musical career. At its core, music theory encompasses
everything from writing and annotating pieces of music to how notes come
together in terms of rhythm, meter, tension and release. As a composer himself,
McKinley enjoys teaching even more than writing his own musical masterpieces.
