- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I'm a professional composer, pianist and drummer with a Bachelor of Music from William Paterson University. I've been teaching for 10+ years to a wide-ranging group of students.
My aims as a teacher are similar to my aims as a musician--to foster creativity, lay down a strong foundation, and build a framework for listening. That's accomplished in different ways for different instruments, but the fundamentals remain the same and are a major part of my, and any, teaching curriculum. Core subjects include technique, music theory, sight-reading, melody, harmony, rhythm, and syncopation. Lessons are catered to the student's needs/goals, beginner to advanced, all ages welcome!
Theo was a blast to learn from. The guy has amazing abilities and patience. His lessons were always fun and engaging and I never felt like he was going from a script. Everything was tailor made to my needs. Great teacher!
Theo was great! He was very patient with me as I am a beginner and never made me feel inadequate. The tips he gave me were extremely valuable and he left me with tons of things to practice. My go-to teacher. 5 stars!
