Hi!! I'm a bassist and composer living in Astoria, NY. I primarily tutor bass guitar, guitar, upright bass, and music theory/composition at all levels, specializing in jazz and improvisational skills. I also teach beginner piano, sight singing and ear training.
I hold an MM in Music Composition (Jazz Studies) from New York University and have been teaching privately in New York City, New Jersey, and Philadelphia since 2004.
Composition is my primary musical activity and one which I received the most training in over the years. I compose music regularly for my own groups and have had works commissioned by several ensembles.
I am knowledgeable in all areas of "classical" composition technique in multiple periods (Baroque, Romantic, Twentieth Century, etc.) as well as many jazz idioms (bebop, modal, modern, free jazz, etc.).
I have been playing the guitar for over 15 years. I hold a MM in Music Composition (Jazz Studies) from New York University and have been teaching privately in New York City, New Jersey, and Philadelphia since 2004. I cater all my lessons to individual students needs and can teach students of any level beginner to advanced.
