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.

While attending, she studied piano under Christina Dahl, and violin under Soovin Kim and Mario Gotoh. Cynthia also was a member of the Stony Brook University Orchestra as a first violinist, also under the conduction of Dr. Susan Deaver.
Cynthia attended the NY AllState orchestra for two years as a violinist, as well as All Eastern in her senior year. For all four years of high school she was a member of LISFA, All County Orchestra, and concertmaster of her high school symphony. Cynthia also played violin with the North Shore Symphony Orchestra under the conduction of Dr. Susan Deaver while in high school and was also was a member of the Stony Brook University Orchestra as a first violinist, also under the conduction of Dr. Susan Deaver.

I taught Humanities, English, and Acting/Directing/Filmmaking full-time, at both middle and high school levels (the latter, a school devoted to film and television production and studies) for eleven years, and have been a private tutor during that time. (I hold a current New York State Certification in English/Language Arts (Grades 7-12), and two Master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania: one in secondary education in English, the other in English, Comparative Literature and Theatre).
I left teaching full-time, and have gone back to acting/voice-over work/film-making, where everything started. I adore my work, yet also loved the opportunity to empower kids with their learning and in turn enhance their mastering and taking ownership of their material, building their confidence!

I am eager and equally interested in applying to offer my skill. With the academic and leadership qualities that you are looking for, I believe I would be able to contribute to the objectives.
I am presently enrolled in New York Institute of Technology as a junior in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and hopefully I will complete my bachelors by May 2015. I am thrilled to know that you are looking for a tutor and I feel that this is the perfect platform for me.
As a result of my previous work experience in the Learning Center in my college for the last couple of years, I believe I am well equipped with not only academic qualifications but also experience of working in an energetic and dynamic environment. I have been also serving for a tutoring Center, Math Matters and very much familiar with the new Common Core Curriculum. I am also familiar with Regions Curriculum I have also served as a Supplemental Instructor for Physics that adds to my leadership abilities.
An opportunity to be able to work will prove to be mutually beneficial. While I will be able to gain further experience about the real-world applications of teaching, I believe that will also be a great addition to the working teams and contribute to the your goals and objectives.
