I took four years of Music Theory courses at Berklee College of Music as a Music Education Major. I have already passed the MTEL Music exam for teacher licensing. I've been playing and studying music in one form or another for 17 years now, and I passed the approval test on this website with 100% of my answers correct. Most importantly, I'm an accomplished educator, composer, arranger, and analyzer in the field of music, and am very qualified to tutor/teach in this field.
As a graduate of Berklee College of Music I have passed multiple courses and assessments based on Solfege and Ear Training, as well as had the chance to apply these skills in improvisation. I am a Music Education major at the Berklee, and have also had the opportunity to tutor my classmates in the subject of Ear Training. Previous to Berklee I was an officer in my high school chorus, and I taught ear training exercises to my classmates. My educational background and teaching/tutoring experience in the field of Ear Training makes me very qualified to pass on this skill to others.
I've been playing instruments in one form or another for 17 years, which is most of my life at this point. I've gone through both instrumental and vocal programs throughout all levels of my education, including private instruction in voice, piano, guitar, and percussion. I am graduate of Berklee College of Music with degrees in Music Education and Music Performance (for Drum Set), and have gained a wealth of knowledge about music theory, music history, and teaching methods through these programs.
I have been playing piano for 14 years and have reached a fairly advanced level. Although I am not as proficient at piano as I am at drums, I could teach students beginner and intermediate students without any problems. I was a Music Education major at Berklee College of Music, and as such I had to take 5 semesters of piano classes and pass a proficiency test in order to graduate. Previous to my experience at Berklee, I was privately instructed on piano since the second grade, so I am well qualified to teach young piano students.
