Hi! Nice to meet you.
If you are looking for a tutor who is attentive, friendly, and accommodating to various types of learning, then I suggest you take a closer look at my page!
My name is Kyle and I'm a Sales/Project Assistant at NEXCO West USA in Washington DC (a Japanese bridge inspection company). I graduated with two majors in Music Composition and Bassoon Performance, and also minored in Business and Japanese Language.
For those interested in Japanese lessons: The Japanese language is so incredibly rewarding. Whether you're looking for conversational practice (super important), help with Kanji, or a place to start from scratch, we can cover the above and more. If you are not using pre-assigned materials from a course, I will give or assign you some material that best fits you. Skype lessons are possible, but meeting face to face is preferred.
For those interested in composition lessons: How does one learn to compose? How does one teach composition? Don't listen to anyone who believes that there is a concrete answer to those questions! I'll help guide you through the technicalities and conventions of composition in hopes that you can branch out and find your own unique creative voice.
For those interested in bassoon lessons: I've had the very fortunate opportunity to learn under some extremely talented and insightful musicians. As you may know, a good teacher makes a world of difference. Since I also compose, I can write etudes and such to specifically cater to areas of needed improvement in your playing. Learning to make playable reeds is also a must.
I'll be willing to negotiate rates, travel, and intensity of our material before and during our time together.
