Former Music Professor (piano, jazz, composition, theory, history,)

My academic preparation in ear training consists of classes at Berklee College of Music and Roosevelt University. I served as ear-training coach while at Roosevelt. I always incorporate ear training in my piano teaching. When teaching ear training, I follow a standard university curriculum, starting with recognizing and notating basic tonal harmonic material (intervals and chords), tonal melodies, and simple rhythms. More-advanced work would consist of recognizing and notating modulating progressions, atonal materials, and polyrhythms/changing meter. I encourage each student to practice da [more]

Music Chairperson and Adjudicator's studio is taking new students.

Ear training is a wonderful way to help understand this language of music with more ease and success. Some advances as a musician provided with good ear training are: Do you know when you are "in tune"? Can you recognize intervals by listening, as well as by sight- improving faster sight reading and ensemble work, especially with creating or learning harmony parts. Can you distinguish different tempos (steady beat vs. tempo variations) dynamic changes (forte vs. piano, crescendo vs. diminuendo),(Legato vs. Portamento) etc. The better you can hear theses differences you can do these diffe [more]

Pro musician/performer toured the world & performed on Broadway

I studied ear training at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. And as a working musician and instructor, I am constantly having to learn many songs by ear. Therefore, I use this skill on a daily basis. I have been giving private guitar lessons since 1994 at various music stores throughout the Chicagoland area - Pro Am Music in Downers Grove '94 to '98, Offbeat Music in Lake Zurich 2001 to 2008, Minstrel Music in Niles 2008 to 2012, School of Rock in Highwood and teaching out of my own home studio in Morton Grove. I truly believe that a big part of being a complete artist is giving back and s [more]

Flute Lessons in your home for all ages and all levels

Music, Academic, and Recreational Tutor

I have studied music at Harper College in Palatine, IL, for two years under renowned music theorist/sight singing specialists Dr. Barbara Bowker and Dr. Charmian Tashjian. I have tutored ear training for one year ever since starting at Northeastern Illinois University in Fall of 2012. When it comes to both sight singing and ear training, I make sure those who I tutor/teach get the basics down pat, meaning that I have the individuals know their intervals sufficiently and know the difference between a major, minor, augmented, and diminished chord(audibly). Then, I would focus on dictations for t [more]

The Most Effective Voice Coach.

I have been trained in both music theory as well as "playing by ear" at Sherwood Censervatory of Music (1987-2000) and Vandercook College of Music (1994-2001). I have been told by several instructors and critics that I possess "perfect pitch" and that is a quality that very few can say that they have. I am able to detect and correct keys of songs by listening to them and conveying this ability to students as well. Are you ready to fall in love with your voice? Are you ready for something different? If your voice isn?t becoming to you, YOU should be coming to ME! I know what it's like to be [more]
