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]

Piano Teacher (and Polymath!)

I was a top ear training student in my music classes at UCLA. I have taught ear training to many students for over 35 years--helping even students who thought they were "tone deaf." When I taught at Cogswell Polytechnical College recently, part of the mandated curriculum was a complete course in ear training. I can sight-read and sight-sing music, hearing it first in my mind's ear; and when listening to music can create a mental score that I can then transcribe and/or realize at the piano. I love to teach students of all ages. I have extensive experience (35+ years) as a professional piani [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]

Linguist, Speech & Written Language Specialist

I have worked with individuals in musical identification of sound and sound patterns. We have focused on musical scales and how they intertwine with each other. Understanding the patterns of music will train the ear and the mind optimally, when creating one's own patterns. I am currently teaching English Literature and Composition at Foothill College in Los Altos, CA and at San Francisco State University in San Francisco, California. I have a Master's Degree in Linguistics from San Jose State University and a BA in Linguistics from Michigan State University. I work with professionals in speech [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. In studying for these tests, I often helped my peers learn how to differentiate between confusing intervals and chords, helping them improve greatly. I also apply my ear training skills through arranging music by transcribing chords, rhythms and melodies by ear. Hi! I'm Jaewoo. I'm a high school senior about to go to college to major in trombone performance. I have experience private teaching brass players of many ages, and I am a part of a program at my high school where we mento [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]
