I am equipped to teach traditional tonal theory in rigorous depth, but also feel that this is not always necessary or wanted, and so I often will teach specific elements of theory that are practical to a given student's musical goals while also giving an idea of the breadth of musical systems that are available.

About Martin B.

Hi! My name is Martin! I am a Providence-based composer and musician with expertise in music theory, songwriting, recording, and using audio software. I have a knack for demystifying musical concepts and helping people build a knowledge base on musical concepts that are so often seen as unapproachable. I love to give students the ability to tackle musical problems with ideas from a broad range of musical styles, including rock, classical (contemporary, modern, and the standard canon), jazz, Hindustani, and hip hop, which I find equally valuable in my own work. I am very easygoing, flexible, and will be sure to modify my lessons to suit your short- and long-term needs.

I have a Master's degree in Music Composition from Brooklyn College, and a Bachelor's degree in both Music and Interactive Multimedia from The College of New Jersey, and have maintained a strong interest and knowledge of both music and the technological developments that allow for innovative compositions and performances.

I am very much looking forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve your goals!

Martin was very helpful even before I first met him. I spoke with him a number of times and he advised me on which saxophone to get. I am very pleased with the saxophone he suggested.
Overall Martin is friendly and easy to work with. He comes to my house which is very good for me and he is punctual. He listens to what direction I want to go and never pushes to do what I am not interested in. The lessons are at my pace and I never feel any pressure. I am learning quickly and am enjoying the lessons.
