This photo is of my student Sara. When she came to study with me at Indiana University she was a linguistics major. After studying with me a short time and working on classical repertoire I got her accepted into a multi-competition winner's piano performance studio at IU.

As I mentioned in my profile, I prefer to teach from a different perspective than most teachers. If you want to just learn some songs on your instrument - of course I can teach them to you! I can easily turn them into something you can relate to and get under your fingers quickly =) My real specialty, however, is how I teach music theory - both to its students and to students of guitar / bass / piano. Usually, when you learn music theory you start with some preconceptions. There are notes, for instance - twelve of them. You can use these notes to form all kinds of structures - seven note scales, three or four part chords, two note intervals, etc. These various structures are given names, like "Major," "Minor," "Perfect," "Augmented," "Diminished," etc. You know that a Major chord sounds happy and uplifting. You know that a Minor chord sounds sad and depressing. But in all of your lessons, with all of your teachers... has anyone ever bothered to... read more
Hi! This is my first blog. Just wanted to let everyone know I offer one free lesson to my students.
Personal Essay I would like to work as a tutor, because I enjoy teaching music and helping new students deal with the learning and practicing struggles. I graduated from Rockland Community College with the Associate's Degree in Communication and Media Arts program. My GPA was 3.949 points. I completed two communication internships: as a Marketing and Public Relations Intern for Lamb to a Lion Productions and as an intern for Audio Production Communication Practicum at Rockland Community College.

Therefore, I easily passed the hearing test and enrolled to the music school. I graduated from the... read more

Let's keep this simple. I consider what am I going to do with this new computer. For me, it is a combination of hobby computing, business needs, and personal computing. I am seriously considering an Apple this time. The Apple will fit my business needs with both software and the Microsoft offering I can be compatible with the office. The main reason I am considering an Apple is money and security. I am willing to spend the money to get the hardware and software to pursue my hobbies. My hobbies being music, photography, and computing. I like the way media looks and feels on the Apple. And to be honest, I am tired of the pc. The Apple works. Security. Security is the key. With identity theft the expense is justified. While working security in the United States Air Force I realized that security is a key component in computing. Therefore, I will spend the money now. Identity theft is serious. Enough said. Now build the computer. This sounds easy... read more
