I have taught music theory to middle and high school students and constantly write, arrange and orchestrate music for musical theatre. I can teach the basics of music theory, as well as more sophisticated music notation.
I have finished Ear Training level 4 in my first semester due to my perfect pitch. Currently, I specialize in conventional ear training, as well as audio engineering Hz-based frequency ear training. I was also tutoring freshmen students.
I've been doing music since I was born, pretty much. I have an in-depth knowledge of songwriting, producing, composition, orchestration, theory, ear training, music history, voice, acting. I got a B.M degree at Berklee College of Music.
I started to play guitar when I was 4 and continued since then. I am excellent at explaining how to play it, and I have taught kids from age 5 to age 14, primary, and intermediate levels. I have gained Bachelors in Music at Berklee College of Music, and have mentored middle school and high school students in guitar training.
I'm a professional vocalist with over 15 years of experience. I started to sing when I was five and have been doing it all the time since then. I participated in and won many of competitions and TV shows back in Ukraine, and at Berklee. I was a student of the world's most premier vocal instructors - Donna McElroy and Steven Santoro. I have over four years of teaching experience.
I've received training from Sean Slade (Radiohead's early albums producer) and Susan Rodgers (Prince audio engineer). I have produced a lot of music, ranging from Electro Pop, Indie Rock, to Musical Theatre. I've majored in Music Production & Engineering at Berklee College of Music.
