Hello everybody!

I'm a music college graduate who loves to teach music. I wanna share what I've been learning and bring joy to young and old with music.

About myself: I studied music in a private music college in Germany for three years. I majored in vocals and piano with a degree as a band leader and choir director and an additional pedagogical qualification.

I had some students at that school and also some private voice and piano students of different ages.

I then decided to move to the US to continue my studies, and I started the program at the Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) in Pasadena.

I graduated in March this year with an associate of arts in vocal performance. I also got honored as a tutor. Throughout my time at LACM, I was helping other students with mostly music theory, ear training, sight singing, and piano.

Things I can do and teach include voice technique, different styles and genres (pop/rock/jazz/rnb/country...), yodeling, sight singing, piano (beginners-intermediate, songwriting, lyric interpretation, music theory, ear training, stage performance, etc.).

I would be happy to hear from you!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

I went to two different music school/music colleges where I had to take ear training courses, three years in total. I'm proficient in both rhythmic and melodic ear training and also tutored at the music college I attended.

In ear training the most important thing is to practice it as often as possible, even if just for five minutes. Getting better is a matter of persistency. What I can help with is how to approach it, how to start, what are ticks and tips to hear things better, practicing together and showing ways how to practice on your own.

Also sight singing and being able to sing back the right pitches has an important role in this process so that's something I will most likely include.

Piano

I am a semi professional piano player. I studied at two different music colleges, where I had to take piano classes.
I started with keyboard for a couple of years when I was younger.
I accompany myself in different styles, am able to sight read and I read chords very well.
I know all the theory there is to know, how to start if you never touched a piano before and tipps on how to best approach piano pieces etc.
I had private students of mostly all ages in Germany and was a tutor for Piano at the Los Angeles College of Music.

Sight Singing

I had sight singing classes for 4 years in two different music colleges. I also learned solf├Ęge (moveable) and can do a number system as well.
Sight singing is connected to ear training. You have to be able to hear something in your head before you sing it. Also it requires a little bit of music theory, which can also be explained in the tutor lesson of course.
I was a tutor for several subjects at the LA College of Music in Pasadena, including sight singing.
My final grade was an A.

Songwriting

I started writing songs about two years ago and I had to take several songwriting classes at the Los Angeles College of Music, where I graduated with an Associate of Arts in Vocal performance this March.
I consider myself a professional songwriter, I know most of the theory there is to know about it.
The biggest challenge in writing songs though is not the theoretical part. It's something that's not explainable. The art of it.
Once you know the basic "rules" you have to let the pencil flow and just write.
Here experience is what counts. The more songs you write, the better you will get.
I can help with avoiding common mistakes, analyzing existing songs together, finding a style (what makes a pop song a pop song?) and also just finding the courage to write your own songs and present them.

Voice (Music)

I studied in two different music school / music colleges, "Music College" in Regensburg, Germany for 3 years and the "Los Angeles College of Music" in Pasadena, CA.
My major in both schools was Vocal Performance. I recently graduated with an Associate of Arts and I also have an pedagogical qualification to teach, which I got in Germany.
I was taught and I teach vocal technique, different styles (pop/rock/jazz/country), yodeling, sight singing, vocology (theory behind the voice, how the body works), stage performance, lyric interpretation, songwriting...
I did teach before, mostly in Germany. I had private students and was also teaching in the music school which belonged to the college I attended.
I now am a professional and working singer with the ability to sing in a lot of different styles and voices.
