Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I offer lessons that focus on music theory (AP / University curriculum), music composition (contemporary classical / film & video game music), and music technology (sound design / engineering).

I hold a Ph.D. in music composition from the University of North Texas where I taught private lessons and courses such as instrumentation, music technology, and class composition I and II to composition and theory majors. In lessons, I aim to understand each student’s unique musical perspective and impart technical confidence through repertoire study and analysis. The lessons are tailored to the student's goals and skill level.

I also have expertise in the field of music technology and audio engineering. I have worked as a lead engineer on multiple international music festivals and currently teach various college-level audio courses. My students come away with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of audio including composing, editing, and mixing for a variety of media such as films and video games.
