reviews from participants

Before we met [via Zoom], I was very frustrated. I was ready to throw the theremin
into a ditch. I searched “theremin lessons” and “grounding the theremin.” I found
out about you on an old Reddit thread and emailed you. When I first contacted you I
was wanting help with how to set up the theremin, how close to have the amp to it,
what to turn on first. I had no idea how to mute it with the cord, I had no idea how
to set zero beat. You were very patient and I could tell that I was going to get
somewhere. You walked me through everything step by step. Once you showed me
how to make the theremin be quiet, my mind was able to pick up on what you were
saying. Then it was easy for me to understand how waveform and brightness affect
the sound. I can feel excited again about the theremin. Now I can begin to play it on
my own. I really appreciated your help.

I learned more in one lesson with Kip than in two months of trying on my own. He is
a wonderful teacher and his teaching methods are astonishingly efficient. I would highly
recommend him to anyone wanting to play the theremin.

I was immediately drawn to the way he approached instruction. Kip displayed the acuity
needed to assist someone when dealing with such an abstract instrument. His astuteness
quickly took me from interested to apprentice.

I’m a performing artist from Sacramento. This year I decided to add the theremin to my
repertoire of art mediums, and I wanted to say thank you for posting your lessons on
your website and youtube channel! …they’ve provided me a lot of guidance and insight
as I explore this new instrument. Thank you again for the education and inspiration!

After trying to learn from a DVD and a book, I was ready to sell my theremin on ebay.
I saw Kip Rosser playing in the New York City subway. He worked with me for ten
minutes and I was suddenly playing better – not virtuoso stuff, but better than everything
up to that point.
