- Teaches students:
- Ages 4+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am a professional musician who graduated from the Wheaton College Conservatory of Music near Chicago with a Bachelors of Music in Composition (emphasis on piano).
I like to tell my students "there's no point to music if it's not fun or emotionally moving." My lessons are driven by the excitement of music, not the tedium. It's like the difference between learning physics and actually flying!
My piano students can expect to pick a song as their goal and then be given technique and music theory homework to compliment that goal. My students have chosen music ranging from J. S. Bach to the "Clash of the Clans" iPhone game soundtrack!
I can teach you how to write your own music. I have written the soundtracks to dozens of independent films and games. I can teach composition using simple pencil and paper, music notation software, or recording software depending on what you have available. If you want to be one of my composition students be warned: expect a heavy dose of music theory because I LOVE IT!
I have a genuine love of all styles and genres of music! My goal is to help you create YOUR music!
