I studied Music Theory and traditional harmony, Jazz harmony, improvisation in Europe and Film Scoring at UCLA, CA. It is my passion to teach Music Theory. I have composed original musical scores for several feature films and TV shows on NBC, CBS and KCAL9.
After studying music theory and ear training in Europe for 4 years I moved to LA, attended Los Angeles Music Academy to study more on Jazz Composition and UCLA FIlm Scoring to score for feature films and TV episodes. To be able to hear the intervals, triads, chords, scales, modal scales and instrumentation is highly important. I have many ways to teach you ear training. You will learn a lot while you are having fun with the lessons.
