I believe that Ear Training is essential for all musicians. With a Master of Music from the Mannes School of Music, I am well-equipped to help you learn this skill. Lessons will include rhythmic and melodic dictation, sight-reading/sight-singing, pitch matching, and interval/chord training. Students of all ages and levels are welcome. My music teachers have greatly impacted my life and my goal is to inspire my students in a similar way. Everyone has a unique learning style and I tailor my teaching to each individual. I love to teach and enjoy helping others achieve their personal musical goals. It would be a pleasure to help you with ear training!
Ever wanted to just "hear the music" whether it's from your own inner imagination or from something you heard on the radio? You need to cultivate your ear! I have spent many years teaching the various aspects of ear training, including: chord recognition, interval recognition, movable-DO technique, and memorization techniques. I assist each individual by creating a method that works best for their purposes.

Having been a Suzuki violin student from the age of 3, I have had extensive ear training from a very young age. I personally believe that with good solid aural skills, many other areas of musical development fall into place much more easily. In addition, having and perfecting these skills can make a good musician into a great musician by fostering confidence and in turn understanding more about other musicians and their instruments
Using a Kodaly based approach, students will learn to identify melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic elements and ultimately to be able to read music from written notation. Ear training encompasses perceiving how sounds are moving so that it can be sung, notated, or played back. Conversely, training the ear enables one to mentally hear notated music in advance of playing it. This valuable skill speeds all aspects of musical learning.
Learning to play by ear can be the most exciting way to learn to play music. In fact, many of your idols did not have the technology that we have today and had only their ear to guide them along. I feel that they did it best. Who wouldn't want to play along with their favorite artist. Whether it's Hendrix, Metallica, or 5 Seconds of Summer, I would love to help you figure it out.
Being an active and experienced musician gives me the necessary knowledge to know what is needed on order to become a better musician. Also having over 20 years of teaching experience allows me to tailor my knowledge to the need of every particular student. I really enjoy to transfer my knowledge and solve the unique musical problem that every student encounter during their musical path.
