I am currently a part-time Doctor of Musical Arts in Music Education student at Boston University. I recently passed a doctoral level music theory exam and am finishing my dissertation proposal. I have 25+ years of teaching general music and choral music in public and private schools as well as private piano and guitar lessons to students of all ages. I was a music theory tutor as far back as earning my B.A.in Music Education before I began my teaching career. I have also served as a piano accompanist for a variety of performances.
I have a calm, nurturing approach and work with each students individual needs.
Thanks for your consideration!
I have been playing the guitar for over 30 years. It is not my main instrument, but I use it in the classroom to accompany students when they sing. I also have a guitar unit for middle school where I teach students to read open chord diagrams, play melodies and to play in an ensemble setting. I also have a guitar club after school.
Over the years, I have taken several music history courses from general (Medieval, Renaissance, Classical, Romantic, 20th Century) to specific courses such as Mozart, Beethoven, The Russian Five Composers, Bach and their works. Recently I passed a musicology exam as part of the requirement for my doctoral work for which I examined an area of music history much more in depth.
I have been playing the piano for 30+ years. As an undergrad student majoring in Music Education, the piano was my major instrument of study. I have been teaching private piano lessons for 25 years. As a music teacher in private and public schools over the years I have been an accompanist for numerous shows and choral concerts. I have also worked as a rehearsal pianist for community theaters.
