I am an experienced tutor in music theory (classical, jazz/rock) and harmony. My educational background is in music education and composition, and I can tutor students in wind instruments, percussion, and keyboard as well.

I have tutoring experience under my belt from working at the Berklee College of Music Learning Center, instructing students in all topics related to music theory, harmony, and composition. Additionally, I have a number of private students who study these subjects under me.

My teaching is founded on knowing and mastering certain fundamental techniques and principles of music writing. There are certain aspects of high quality and lasting music that I want my students to understand and apply so that they too can write good music. I also want them to learn to listen to music in a way that helps them write. I am of the belief that the best students are those with initiative who spend some time teaching themselves, so my goal as a teacher is to give students the tools, curiosity, and direction to do that effectively.

Please contact me if you wish to know more or begin taking lessons.
