Experienced Brass Instruments and Music Teacher

My music degrees from SFSU include proficiency in sight singing and ear training, and I have taught these skills to all age groups for many years as part of a private music lesson curriculum. I train my students to listen to the various aspects of a piece of music by focusing on one aspect at a time. Understanding pitch and hearing differences in pitch are crucial for ear training, as feeling the beat of the music and counting are crucial to rhythm training. My students learn the sound of intervals by singing and by playing them on the piano and/or on their instrument. I give musical dictatio [more]

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]

Friendly music teacher with Brass and Theory experience

I recurved a 5 on the Ear Training section of the AP Music Theory Exam. I also passed the CM Level 10 Theory Test.

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 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]
