I enjoy working with all kinds of students and have taught from preschool level through undergraduate college level and senior citizens. Learning things requires concentration and work, but it can be fun. I require your attention and willingness to work, but I use a sense of humor to make learning enjoyable and interesting.
I have a BA in General Literature from the University of Pennsylvania with concentrations in psychology and sociology. I was the station manager at WXPN and a DJ on air. I have a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in music composition. There I studied conducting, voice, dance and jazz ensemble. I run an audio production business and perform on percussion instruments, voice and keyboards. I compose film scores and am a member of the music group New World Apes.
My experience includes work with the following age groups:
3 years with 2 year olds, 4-5 year olds and latch key, including special needs students 5-14 at Corvallis Community Daycare in Corvallis, OR.
3 years substitute teaching K-12 and tutoring students suspended or psychologically unable to attend school in three New Jersey school systems: North Caldwell, Caldwell and West Essex High Schools.
2 years private teaching of percussion for K-12 North Caldwell NJ.
3 years teaching Learning Annex classes in meditation for adults, Seattle, WA.
3 years as an instructor and program designer in audio technology, music theory and music history at Bellevue College, Bellevue, WA.
I currently run a private audio production school, Seattle Audio School, in Seattle and also am a member of the Media Arts faculty at the Arts Institute of Seattle.
