Ear Training

Learn to recognize chords, intervals and scales by ear, as a step towards learning to transcribe music and play by ear on your instrument of choice.


Study Skills

Good study skills are extremely important for academic success. As a student, I maintained a 4.0+ average throughout High School, and over 3.9 average in college and graduate school. Mastering the information was important, but being organized and managing time effectively even more important. I've got experience tutoring people of all ages on many subjects, and look forward to working on these skills with motivated individuals.

This trained instructor has 30 years of experience as a performer and voice teacher/coach in classical, musical theater, jazz, and popular styles. Bring a song to work on and we will start with that, and move on to exercises and other songs that can help you improve your voice.


QuickBooks

I have used Quickbooks accounting software as the primary accountant and bookkeeper for a retail store for over a year. In the past, I have used Quicken for personal finances for many years, and other accounting software with business clients. Recently, I have become conversant with accounting "in the cloud" using Quickbooks Online. I can provide training in basic accounting, bookkeeping, and using Quickbooks for specific tasks.
