Lesson Details

Music Theory

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Want to learn how music works behind the scenes? Music theory is the study of what makes up music from a note by note basis. Many topics of music branch under music theory, from reading music and rhythms, understanding basic chords and chord progression, to arranging and composing piano solos, orchestral works, or jazz reharmonization. I have studied music theory intensively and can teach it from a pure beginner's standpoint to an advanced collegiate level.

I have over 10 years of experience on the Clarinet and other reed instruments. I am a senior undergraduate BA Music Education major at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College and have studied classical clarinet as well as saxophone under various professors at the college.

I also have experience in teaching NYSSMA solos, intermediate/advanced techniques on the saxophone and clarinet, and have run and directed my own orchestra and jazz band during my time in college.

I have a reputation for achieving whatever goals I set my sights on musically, from performing to composing and conducting.

I am also in touch with the current music education situation in New York City, spending many hours every semester doing fieldwork observations in various music programs across the city as well as being an assistant to various honors festivals for middle school and high school students, as well as performing in them while still in the public school system.

I personally believe practicing should be fun, and have devised multiple strategies for success to kick-start one's drive for peak performance in music!

Music Theory · In home

Jorge tutored me for a few weeks in music theory and it greatly benefited me. He shows through his examples and explanations that he really understands concepts of music theory and keyboard, as well on his clarinet too. I highly recommend hiring Jorge since he goes over the information at a good pace and nice manor. He will go over whatever you need help on.
