I believe that the study of music is one of the most rewarding pursuits we can undertake! Whether a total beginner, college student or adult looking to brush up on skills or learn new ones, I will help you reach your goals!

As a lecturer with the Tulane University Department of Music in New Orleans, LA I primarily teach music theory and history. As a private oboe and piano teacher, I have taught students of all ages and levels.

I received my Master's degree in Oboe Performance from the University of Akron where was a graduate assistant for oboe and music theory. I currently perform professionally, including with the Louisiana Philharmonic, Jefferson Performing Arts Society, and Rapides, Acadiana, and Lake Charles Symphonies. Having studied piano since the age of 8 through graduate school, I enjoy performing as a vocal accompanist for Tulane students as well as for local churches.

I am able to offer lessons at Tulane University and am able to travel throughout the metropolitan area. As I am frequently performing throughout the state of Louisiana, I can also arrange special lessons in other cities. Feel free to contact me about scheduling a lesson!

I am also happy to assist you in finding an instrument, supplies, sheet music and method books. Having the right setup is the best way to ensure success!

I like his technique to teach piano; I only have had 5 classes with him and I already play few songs.

Did a lot of work on technique, which should really help my playing (especially pitch).

Lesson Details

Ear Training

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Training our ear is one of the most important and often overlooked skills we need as musicians. My experience with teaching ear training extends from beginners to advanced college level coursework. I cater the lessons to your interests and goals, which may include:

Improving pitch/intonation and rhythm
Harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic dictations (useful for college admissions tests)
Sight singing/solfege
Developing perfect/relative pitch

Among many others. Whether you need help with coursework, are new to music, or just need some brushing up, we will get your ear sharpened right up!
