Composition (Music)

My qualifications in Music Theory span from basic fundamentals (i.e. scales, key signatures, chord progressions) to analysis of repertoire spanning from Classical to Impressionism. Also, my training includes Formal Analysis of instrumental and vocal repertoire. This allows me to aid the composer in the organization and appropriate notation of their work.

Ear Training

I completed four semesters of Ear Training courses for my undergraduate degree. I also frequently use these techniques in my own practice and instruction.

General Music

I received my Bachelors Degree in Music in December 2013. I satisfy the requirements of this degree from a National Association of Schools of Music accredited institution. This also satisfies the requirements by the State of Maryland for said degree.

Music History

My musical journey has been a focus on the Classical repertoire, meaning music from the Baroque Period-21st Century Music. I have taken numerous courses and conducted my own research in the fields of Music History, World History 1500s-Present, and History of the Art Song.

Music Theory

My training in Music Theory took place over two years, spanning the fundamentals of music notation and patterns to the analysis and interpretation of major works. In addition to Theoretical knowledge, Formal Analysis is also important to any pianist, vocalist, or instrumentalist to properly perform their work with intelligence and emotion.

Sight Singing

I completed four semesters of formal training in Sight Singing that was then applied in practice to me own personal repertoire and that of my students as well. Sight Singing combines the techniques of Solfege, Ear Training, and Music Theory - all of which I maintain proficiency in.

Theatre

As a performer, I have gained a significant amount of real-life-training in the theatre, with multiple principal roles in my undergrad program as well as will local Opera and Musical Theatre companies. I have also conducted Voice & Movement Workshops and prepared students for roles and performances on the professional and community levels.

Voice (Music)

I have maintained a voice studio for two years and counting, both privately and within institutions. In addition, I have been an avid performer of Opera, Oratorio, German Lied, French Melodie, English Folk, American Song, and Musical Theatre for over eight years.
