Private Ear Training Teacher

The development of the ear is crucial to becoming a a good musician. Can you tell if you are in harmony with the other musicians? Can you tell if you are consonant or dissonant? Can you recognize a perfect fifth? A Major third? These skills CAN be developed into a finely honed tool!! My approach to ear training is that of the conservatory I attended when i went to college and gets results fast.

Jimmy is great, super down to earth. Went in with zero knowledge and am astonished at the difference in such a short time.

Jimmy does a great job teaching you physical elements of singing and really helped me understand what my body is doing when singing.

Awesome guy, can't say much else!

I studied ear training in high school and then in college as a music major. In a private lesson setting it is best to explore ear training through the instrument you are learning but I can teach strict ear training lessons if desired.

About Jared

I am overjoyed and grateful to say I have been teaching music since 2008. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience. More importantly, I love teaching and playing music with a passion. I play a great variety of instruments and have had the opportunity

Rachel was so professional and warm! She helped me feel less nervous, answered my millions of questions, explained some technical things that really helped, and made everything fun The lesson passed in a heartbeat - and considering how nervous I was, that's amazing!
Kathryn Engelhardt-Cronk
Rachel is beyond amazing! She is a talented teacher, a gifted and highly trained singer and one of the most patient, supportive and insightful intructors with whom I have had the joy of working. What makes Rachel special, on top of all the traits I have already detailed, is that she seems to have an intuitive understanding of my neeeds as a pupil and provides the perfect amount of encouragement, training and guidance for a beginner, as I am. I have now worked X2 per week with Rachel over the past year and my singing experience with her has been life-changing. She is also prompt, respectful and funny! Thank you, Rachel!

Private Ear Training Teacher

Your ear is your single most important tool for navigating music, whether as a performer, a listener, a composer, a producer, or an improviser. The best path to a better ear is to dig deep into the music you love, and that's exactly what we do. Using techniques I learned over 10 years of studying jazz, you'll learn how to recognize and produce all the different harmonic resonances, chord qualities, and rhythmic patterns available in how to sing and transcribe melodies and chord progressions, and how to apply those skills and knowledge to your own music-making. You'll apply that foundation to learn music that excites you entirely by ear, empowering you to study anything you can listen to. You'll learn to hear the music you love in new ways, and discover new sounds to fill your ears with and translate onto your instrument.

Ear training can be one of the most fun parts of music practice, and I'd love to help you out with yours- shoot me a message and we can get started : )

About Ethan

My musical life started at the piano when I was four. I've spent the last five years helping students understand the sounds that speak to them and bring them into their own music-making. I spent my early years playing piano, then picked up the saxophone, which took me to Berklee College of Music,

I have studied saxophone, jazz piano/theory, and songwriting with Ethan for over 2 years, and he is the best music instructor I've ever had. He cares so much about his students and helps us thrive. Not only is Ethan my teacher, he is a friend and a mentor.

I first met Ethan through my school's jazz combo program, and my interest in music immediately grew in the presence of his friendly persona. Ethan organized life changing jam sessions and master classes that I will remember forever. His teaching approach is project based which gives his students something to walk away with. With his guidance, I have become a stronger musician and a wiser person. Thanks Ethan!

"Aaron has an ability to make difficult things interesting and fun. While I was at the University of Oregon, Aaron provided me private instruction for what was one of the most disliked classes amongst the undergrads. Aaron turned what used to be something that I would dread into something that was entertaining and effective. He would come with real world examples and allegories regarding music theory and composition to apply context to whatever it was we were studying. Despite my apparent deficiencies in ear training, he was not only incredibly patient but also very effective in helping me overcome my challenges and earn a passing grade."

"If you are aurally challenged when it comes to intervals and harmonic progressions, I definitely recommend tutoring. Michelle was very patient during our lessons and had different tips on how to identify certain progressions, which I appreciated. We also worked on complex rhythms together. It was actually really fun. She's very kind, resourceful, and an excellent tutor."

"Billy's approach to ear training really helped me a lot! He went at my pace and made references to popular song a to hear chords that, without context, are hard to hear. He accommodated to my way of learning and went from there. I still use some of the methods he's taught me till this day!"

"Aaron is a wonderful teacher. I took lessons from him covering a wide range of topics in music - solfege, theory, piano. I have had a great deal musical training, and am an adult learner. Aaron treated me like an adult but progressively pushed me to a deeper understanding. Aaron found the pockets where I most needed to pull my experience and training together, and taught me a great many things in a short time. I highly recommend him as a teacher."
