Music theory has always been a fascinating subject to me. It's not enough for me to just listen to music or perform it, I want to really understand it. I really enjoy knowing why a piece of music sounds the way it does and the elements involved in creating a song or composition. The only thing I enjoy more than knowing it, is sharing that knowledge.
I have taught private music lessons for over 10 years. I joined my first band playing bass at the age of 13, soon moving into my high school marching band, orchestra, and jazz band. I attended both Los Angeles Valley College studying music as well as California State University Northridge obtaining a degree in Film/Television composition. I have experience writing both songs and scores for documentaries, short films, and animations.

Music Theory is important no matter your instrument, but is almost always best explored through an instrument. Though I have no issue teaching strict theory to a student, in a private setting it is best utilized through the student's primary instrument.
I have been happily playing music for over half of my life and it has always been the light in my day. Now it is my hope to shed that same light onto you or your child. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience, even more importantly I love teaching and music with a passion. I have been playing an instrument since the 4th grade (cello) and, as I learned how music works, was slowly able to pick-up a greater variety instruments with an increasing degree of ease. In high school, I decided to pick-up the guitar just to "have fun and rock out". I joined a band, played in the high school orchestra, joined the high school jazz band and began to practice songwriting and cover songs. Still, it was not until after I took my first class on music theory
Beginning & Intermediate music theory using college textbooks and breaking it down for the level of the student.
Bachelor's in musical theater performance from Columbia College Chicago. Audition prep (acting/singing) and vocal technique for clients since 2007. My critique during your lesson is always honest, so you know when I give you a compliment it is well deserved. I especially love working with non-singers and helping them find their voice. I always start with an assessment to see where your work is currently at and where we can go from there. I keep notes during your lesson, send you an email afterwards with your homework for the week, then I use those notes to think of personalized ways to improve your technique before your next lesson. If honesty and results are what you're looking for in a teacher, I promise to be that teacher for you. *** Lesson Details *** Whether you're ...
I have studied music for over 15 years and was a music minor in college. I've played the piano, flute, acoustic guitar, clarinet, tenor saxophone and piccolo and am an avid singer. Whether learning a new instrument, starting from scratch, or learning to sing, music theory is an important part of accomplishing your goals. If you have a book from school or assignments, we can definitely work with that. Outside of that, I generally work with the Alfred series of books.
Tutoring has been a major part of my life for over 7 years and I love it. Seeing the excitement in a student's eyes when they finally get something they've struggled with is why I do what I do. My strength is in getting to know the way a student learns best and finding techniques that support that style and help the student grow. I have experience working with mild autism and have multiple references if interested.
