I have experience in this field in practice. I have a certificate from a cosmetology school in the state of Missouri. I feel qualified to not only tutor a student in this subject, but also tutor excellent study skills for a student to not only get a certificate & pass the State Board Exam, but to also enable the student to actually apply what has been learned to life.
I started ear training at the age of 10, when a piano teacher tested me, & determined I had perfect pitch. I have used this ability since that time, not only for myself, but for other piano & choir teachers.
This ability continues to be useful to me in life, with regards classical music pieces, specifically in certain keys & music directions.
I have a well-grounded, well-rounded education in general music.
I have taken classes from Music History to Music Theory to Choir, as well as piano lessons.
I have also been exposed to a wide range of music from Classical to more modern recordings from childhood forward.
I have been exposed to, have read up on & have taken classes in Music History, practically all of my life. The most notable times with getting educated in this subject have been in Elementary, Junior High & High School. I, additionally, have gained knowledge of this subject from my dad, as well as via the Internet, radio, & classical music concerts.
I learned sight-singing as early as first grade, &, also with learning to read music, got very good at it.
Taking piano lessons have helped with the ability to do sight-singing, as far as identifying the position of the notes when sight-singing.
I also had good chorus/choir teachers that helped me achieve this ability, & I know I can do the same for others.
I have been trained in the Applied Scholastics Achievement Program, in which a key part of this program is teaching the student good study skills, using a proven method.
This method teaches the student on getting either the actual thing, a picture or a sketch on what he/she is studying about, studying on a gradient, as well as learning how to look up a word or symbol he/she does not fully understand.
This method not only teaches the student to apply what he/she is studying, but also using it for applying to LIFE.
