Ear Training

I have a M.A in music and use ear training skills everyday as a composer, and performer on saxophone. I specialize in jazz, a music, in which it is necessary to have excelling ear training skills. During college, I took ear training and sight singing classes. I also am trained in music theory, which I studied in college and graduate school as well.

General Music

I have an MA in music from UC Riverside, concentrating in ethnomusicology and jazz and improvisation. I am trained in music theory, harmony, piano, history, research, cultural analysis, ear training, saxophone performance, and musics of many various world cultures. I am especially cogent in analyzing music from a cultural and anthropological perspective. I have tutored music theory before, and I currently teach private saxophone lessons to students of all ages and skill levels. I can read musical notation fluently and am trained in composition as well.

Music History

I have a M.A in music and I have studied western music history and theory and world music. I am very knowledgeable about jazz music history in particular. I have given academic conference presentation on musicological subjects, which required extensive research in areas of music history. I have a strong background in this subject matter and also have teaching experience. I have served as a teaching assistant for music history courses, leading my own discussion sections and working with hundreds of students.

Piano

I have an M.A in music and have been teaching piano privately for over 3 years. I teach all skill levels and specialize in teaching younger children. I have many students that are ages 5 to 10. I have had great success teaching students and am a great motivator as well. I have been playing piano for over 15 years.

Saxophone

I have a M.A in Music from UC Riverside and my main instrument is saxophone. I specialize in jazz and improvisation but I am also classically trained and have played many other styles as well: blues, funk, r &b. I have been playing saxophone for 15 years, compose and perform regularly, and currently teach private saxophone lessons. I have much teaching experience as I have been teaching students of all ages and skill levels for over 3 years. I have taught about 25 students and am confident in taking on students of all skill levels. I plan my lessons around the student's goals and go from there.
