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.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop for many years, to create graphics for presentations, websites and the like. Additionally I worked professionally for a couple of years as a photo-editor, removing backgrounds, enhancing photos, and creating ads in Photoshop.

Ear Training

I studied piano from age 6 to 18 and additionally I studied Filmscore Composition under Walter Scharf at UCLA. I subsequently continued in a career in music production for over 30 years. I have an innate talent for being able to pick out and "see" notes and chords when I hear them, and I have composed and arranged music for recordings, small combos, big band, and even small orchestra.

Music Production

I studied piano from an early age, studied film score composition at UCLA and worked in music production for over 30 years as a recording engineer, mixer and producer. Many of the records I was involved with were hits in Japan and I can boast a number one record and single in the UK, recording and mixing 'High on the Happy Side' with the popular Scottish group Wet, Wet, Wet. I have also recorded many successful records in the US, including records by local artists such as Rainer, Giant Sand, and the Sidewinders. Three records I produced in this country made Spin Magazine's 'Top 80 Records of the 80s' list.

Piano

I studied piano from the age of six and continue to play, often professionally. In 2014 I was the pianist and musical director for a tribute to Burt Bacharach's music, featuring Julie Anne Booz on vocals. My musical background is extensive, including both tutoring and schooling, and a successful 30-year career as a music producer.
