About Theodore

My name is Ted. I have 35 years teaching experience teaching instrumental music lessons to students of all ages. I taught 33 years in Allentown, Pa and two years in Arizona as a public school music teacher, and in addition, I was a organist/choir director for a number of years. I majored in clarinet, with a minor in piano. However, I have experience teaching all instruments specializing in woodwinds and piano. I am new here to Arizona, and I am trying to establish myself in the area. I also directed elementary through high school bands as well as jazz band and orchestras throughout the years. My rates are reasonable, and I want to share my love of music with others. My name is Ted. I have 35 years teaching experience teaching instrumental music lessons to students of all ages.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Clarinet

I was a clarinet major in college and played clarinet since I was 10 years old. I was first chair player in many concert band groups and still play today for many functions throughout my career.

Composition (Music)

I taught music composition last year at my job at BASIS Scottsdale which was part of the music theory course. I myself wrote a few original music compositions and I have the knowledge and expertise teaching this to a prospective student. I would love to teach composition to this student if given the chance.

Flute

I taught flute for a number of years to children and adults of all ages. Plus, I play flute myself for a number of years. After all, I am a woodwind major.

Music Theory

I have 35 years of teaching music education, and I have taught AP Music Theory at BASIS for two years to prepare students for the AP exam at the end of the year. My students passed the test. I would like to be considered for this tutoring position.

Piano

I have been teaching piano for over 30 years. I work well with children and adults. I also was a music teacher for 33 years in public schools in Pennsylvania and Arizona.

Saxophone

I have been teaching saxophone for a number of years. I just picked a new student in Scottsdale, and he is doing very well. I also played saxophone in a big band for six years before moving to Arizona. I am an experienced teacher on this instrument.

Sight Singing

I have perfect pitch and I took several aural perception courses in college and taught aural perception here in Arizona for two years. I could help someone with sight singing if the need arises.

Trombone

I have been teaching instrumental music lessons for a number of years and have experience teaching trombone. One of my former students in Pennsylvania played trombone and went on to be a band director. I was a public school music teacher for over 35 years, and I have a excellent success rate with students.
