Looking for a highly experienced music tutor? Do you need a tutor who understands the student's perspective? What about a tutor who's been a music student, and a music faculty member? How about a tutor with college teaching experience? Need a tutor who has a large variety of teaching resources in music? Ever thought about a tutor who understands both the teaching and learning perspectives in the classroom? Want a tutor who has practical experience in working with the different learning styles of music students?
Do you find yourself saying, "Yes!", or "I've never thought about that before," to one or more of these questions? Then you've found the right tutor!
I have a B.M., M.M., and D.M.A. in Music Composition. I've taken the following courses in my many years as a student: Composition, Music Theory, Aural Skills, Music Theory Pedagogy, Schenkerian Analysis, Forms & Analysis, Tonal Counterpoint, Modal Counterpoint, Orchestration, 20th Century Analysis, Aesthetics of Music, Electronic Music, Music History, Music of the Renaissance, Shakespeare and Music, Early Modern Masters, Music of Brahms, Music of Schoenberg, Women in Music, History of Music Theory, 20th Century Music, Organ Performance, Organ Literature, Organ Construction, Keyboard Skills, Organ Improvisation, and Keyboard Score Reading.
Having served as a music faculty member at several schools, I've taught the following courses: Composition, Music Theory, Aural Skills, Keyboard Skills, Orchestration, Music Appreciation, and Music Fundamentals.
I've found teaching to be very rewarding. I approach my lessons with patience, honesty, consistency, and thoroughness. Too often in the classroom, students are told to learn something simply because their teacher tells them they must know it. I teach in way that accepts a student's initial confusion, and instead first helps them to recognize why a particular concept is useful. Recognition really makes the move to comprehension a much smaller step, rather than just presenting an endless stream of exercises until comprehension is achieved. I find students learn better by understanding why we need something, before knowing how it works. This way they will better remember a lesson by recognizing the importance of that lesson.
So, do you want the most experienced, thorough, and educated WyzAnt Music Tutor in the metro Boston area? Then look no further!
