Hello! I'm a recent PhD graduate in music, and I've been teaching music to kids and adults since 2008 through music schools and independently, from beginner to the university level. My goal is to make music fun and accessible for my students while building their creativity, and literacy in a highly personalized and responsive manner. In composition, we will focus on building your musical voice while studying theory, history, notation, and orchestration. Send me a message to see if we would be a good match!

About Meredith G.

I’m a classical/art music composer with an affinity for the avant garde. Many of my pieces utilize graphics or other non musical sources as a framework, treated with different degrees of intuition and literal translation, to create music with an unexpected shape and content. I very rarely compose a piece in the same method multiple times. I have a fondness of gesture, non functional harmony, extended techniques, odd timbres, and low sounds. I graduated with my PhD from SUNY Buffalo in 2021, and previously studied at the Hartt School (MM) and Butler University (BM).
My goal as a teacher is to foster your creativity and independence as a composer. We'll learn theory, notation, musical literature, and orchestration, guided by your interests and strengths, and start making music that is truly your own!
