I have played in jazz, rock, and blues bands since college. I graduated San Francisco State with my Masters in Music Ed. with a concentration in Jazz Piano & Theory. I give my students a solid foundation in classical technique but I also stress music theory and ear training. As a pianist and keyboardist in a variety of bands I can offer training in improvisation, focusing on blues, gospel or jazz.
Having studied classical piano since I was five, I teach good piano technique first, but I also let students focus on ear training, theory, and improvisation if they desire it. I stress self-expression as the main goal of being a well-rounded musician and I make sure students take an active role in directing their own musical exploration.
*** Lesson Details ***
In order to ensure that the student has a good experience I ask that have students two 2 to 5 pieces that they work on at any one time for 15-30 minutes a day. For beginners I give flash cards because I feel that the ability to recognize notes quickly and accurately is the pianist's critical skill. Since music helps with reasoning and concentration skills the 15 minutes spent practicing won't affect children's grades. For kids twelve and under I ask parents to help them learn the notes using flash cards for ten minutes a day for the first month.
I carry a pocket recorder and make MP3s of practice pieces available so that students know what the pieces should sound like.
Students dabble in theory and improvisation to see if they enjoy it but ultimate control of how the time is spent is up to the student. For children lessons we focus mainly on the varieties of music they most, but during each lesson we will spend at least some time doing ear training for intervals and chords chords. Because I have a degree in music theory and I can improvise I make up my own accompaniments to the practice pieces; I believe that actually playing music with another person dramatically improves timing, confidence, musicianship, and love of music.
For the first three months most students play simple one note melodies. The next step is two-handed pieces. At around six months (depending on the student's age) they begin to sightread, improvise (if they wish), and start to become proficient enough to choose their own favorite pieces. .
*** Studio Equipment ***
Synthesizers, pianos, harmony and rhythm software.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I have tons of songbooks. I use a pocket recorder with a USB adapter and leave students with recordings of the pieces they are learning. They can either download the recording at home or I can email them.
*** Specialties ***
I know jazz theory but I start out with the rudiments of classical theory and technique. I teach students about the circle of fifths, secondary dominants and sub-dominants, and I encourage all of my students to play small improvised jams which I accompany with them. I believe that knowing at least some theory is the key to becoming a good musician. I can teach blues, rock, gospel and jazz theory if students are interested.

Thank you for your interest in my tutoring services. My training in tutoring and mentoring students has been through experience in over 8 years. I have helped students through various subjects for college preparation and overcoming academic standstills in their middle school and high school curriculum. Currently, I mentor and address concerns of students preparing for the SAT essay portion and ACT exam along with everyday subject matter in their current courses.
Some subjects that I have worked with students in include English, Writing, Mathematics, Science, Spanish, and Voice. Lesson plans are built individually and around students academic ability and cater to the demand of their current teachers. Homework help is available along with the option to be taught new skills and advance current knowledge.
Along with this I also tutor students in the City University of New York system which includes allied health and nursing. Students have been able to make leaps and bounds in understanding concepts and learning how to critically think through any situation no matter how challenging or intense.
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

First and foremost, I love tutoring/teaching and I have been doing it in some form for 7 years. I'm patient and absolutely willing to work to find strategies that will help YOU, because I know everyone learns differently!
I graduated cum laude from Boston College in 2011 with majors in English and Music. I started officially building my clientele over 2 years ago (before that I tutored as community service throughout college) with topics including: SAT prep, ACT prep, college counseling, trigonometry, chemistry, reading, writing, math, piano and much more!
My 99+% scores for the SAT/ACT in high school is what inspired me to start tutoring those subjects: I look at those tests as a game. There is only a finite number of questions they can ask you, so strategy preparation is key to being able to intercept any question before it stumps you!
As far as music lessons go, I teach beginner, intermediate, and intermediate-advanced piano lessons. I also teach beginner saxophone and music theory. I've been playing instruments since I was 5!
Please let me know if I can provide you with any other information. It would be an honor to work with you and I know we'd reach success!

Welcome to a new level of academic success! I am a certified high school science, math, and English as a Second Language teacher with experiences in both urban and suburban schools. I have had the privilege of teaching high school science to felons in Philadelphia; AP Chemistry to students in a thriving, suburban Nashville school district; Chemistry, Algebra I and II, and ESL to students in the Poconos; and college Chemistry courses in PA. I have also spent more than fifteen years tutoring students in science, math, ESL, writing, and SAT/ACT prep.
My passion and love of teaching is unwavering, which is why I spend a significant amount of time on my own professional development as an educator. In addition, I have had the opportunity to speak at a number of local, national, and international education forums, most recently in Oakland, CA at the National Association of Multicultural Education's International Conference.
As your tutor, I will provide you or your loved one with a quick, accurate assessment of skills and needs; create a personalized plan to best utilize the student's learning style(s); transfer my content knowledge in an engaging, creative manner (including the use of technology if suitable); provide a safe, nurturing environment for learning; keep you informed of your loved one's progress; provide flexibility in scheduling; and help your student build confidence in the subject matter by teaching and reviewing note taking skills and test taking strategies.
I will gladly provide references from former students and parents who can attest to my content knowledge, dedication to teaching, and professional attributes.
Best of luck in your search for a tutor and in all your future endeavors!
