Violin, Viola, Piano, Music Theory, and Composition Teacher

I am currently earning my Masters in Music Composition at Mannes College the New School for Music. Last year I graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor of Music with a double emphasis in Viola Performance and Composition. I graduated with "High Honors" (i.e. GPA 3.78) and Distinction in my Major. Both institutions require intensive ear training as part of their curriculums. As a string player since I was three-years-old, I developed my ear from an early age. As a result, I was able to test out of classes at both UCSB and Mannes. [more]

Piano, composition, theory/aural skills, chamber music, music history

I have taught ear training to students of various ages for over 20 years. I teach interval recognition by sight and sound. I encourage students to sing particular intervals and use well-known melodies to help students recall and hear intervals. I use Hindemith's Elementary Training for Musicians for sightreading rhythms and for rhythmic dictation. I give melodic and harmonic dictation to students to prepare for college-level courses and to generally improve their melodic, rhythmic and harmonic ear. I teach transposition to young piano students to develop their melodic and harmonic ear. [more]

Classical Music Everything

Ear training is a skill basic not only to performance of any sort, but to listening to and understanding music. It is a necessary basis for music theory. I have a wide variety of techniques, games, and exercises you can do yourself, to sharpen your listening skills. I bring years of experience in choral singing and conducting, composition, and teaching to our work. If you need help with music --- let's go! I have been a professional composer and teacher of music for several decades now. I attended Yale University (B.A.), then the University of California, Berkeley (M.A.). I am a faculty member [more]

Humanities and Music Expert offers friendly facilitation

Do you have trouble writing down your musical ideas? Or improvising music with other musicians? Chances are that ear training is the answer. Learn to identify intervals, harmonies, scale-types, Rhythm patterns. Using solfeggio, a piano if you have one, recordings, and your instrument, I will help you get a firm idea of where your music is coming from and going to. Hi. I believe in the "organic" method of tutoring. That means I start out LEARNING FROM YOU THE STUDENT, about what you already know, how you talk about it, and what type of learning process works for you. From there, I create an app [more]
