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

I have taught theory for over 20 years to students of all ages and abilities. I teach analysis quite early to help students understand form and to understand how melody, rhythm and harmony shape form. I teach students to identify intervals and chords by sight and sound. For every piano student I use a theory book that coordinates with their lesson book. I often use Faber and Faber Piano Adventures for beginning students because the theory book covers ear training and sightreading, both important skills to learn, regardless of the instrument being studied. In group situations I teach inter [more]

Creative, Hard Working, Willing and Able to go the Extra Mile!

As a lover of music and having a minor in music from Brigham Young University-Idaho, I was able to acquire great skills in the realm of music theory. There is great joy when one can understand how a piece of music works to make it special. I am a recent college graduate from Brigham Young University, Idaho. I have always been the one to help other students understand when they are not able by using different words and descriptions to teach subject matter. I believe in guiding the student to the answer and not just giving it to them, so that they have the opportunity to learn and find confidenc [more]

Researcher/Musician/Social Media/Overall Well Educated

After High School I knew I was behind on my education. I forced myself to take 17 units then 18 and finally 19 every semester while working at Skyline Colleges financial aid department. The struggle was real but in the end I learned so much and really proved to myself that anything is possible. With almost all A's and B's except a single C in chemistry, I had finished five AA's after three years and 105 units. For 12 years now I have been learning and playing music on multiple instruments:... [more]

I am available to teach all topics falling under this heading, including harmony, counterpoint, and analysis. As a composer I can deal with both very recent music as well as the most ancient.
