Many aspects of music history, history, social studies and literature are connected. My objective is to help students understand this interactive relationship and to develop their knowledge and understanding of this connection. I can also teach students about specific areas of music history and music appreciation.

I have a Master's degree in Humanities and have extensively studied Music History, History, Sociology, Philosophy and Literature. My main expertise is in music history and the development of music throughout the centuries to the present day. I can interweave historical milestones with musical trends and periods using an interesting and informative approach.

In addition to my education, I have been a music journalist for over two decades, interviewing and writing features about musical artists and performances. I have years of experience as a credentialed substitute teacher for students grades K through 12. I understand how students learn and what motivates them to continue learning new material, and I know how to make it fun. I am an excellent tutor who will help students to achieve their goals.
