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]

Music Tutoring for Piano Cello General Music Music-History Theory

I have an outstanding ear for music. At the same time, my ability to play "by ear" has sometimes caused me to have a breakdown in the connection between reading printed music and making it "happen" either at a keyboard or at another instrument. I have worked extensively with sight-singing, score-reading and dictation to strengthen my own skills and am eager to help you with your own challenges I have world class performing experience from playing concerts and touring Europe and performing across the United States. I have played cello in concerts with orchestras in some of the most important [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]

Voice Professor/Music Theory

Since age 5 I was educated with Kodaly method. This method is specifically effective on ear training. I majored in Music Theory and received a Bachelor's Degree as a conclusion of my excellent music studies. I believe teaching needs to be individualized, as there is not one person who deals with the exact same problem with others. The foundation of technique is bel canto, but the voice one needs to maintain is unique and therefore has its own challenges and ways to succeed. I believe this is a role to which I could bring great value, exercising and broadening my music teaching experience, and [more]
