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.

Cello

I am a professional bassist and teacher of all strings. I have taught cello privately as well as coached youth symphony sectionals and low string programs in Fairfax County Public School Music Programs and also in Contra Costa County School Programs.

Ear Training

I have taught ear training at Memphis State University. My BM is from Cleveland Institute of Music. I approach ear training several ways. From music we hear everyday and chord quality to interval measuring and distance.

General Music

I have taught a course I designed, called Music is Everywhere, for Fairfax County Public School Intersession programs. I started a string program at the Annandale Va Montessori School. I use Dalcroze Eurhythmics and movement to music in my classes and music appreciation. I focus on how we listen, learn and interpret music.

Music History

I have taught music history while I was a full graduate assistant. As a musician I perform and understand notation of all styles of music from Renaissance to modern and jazz/theater and rock. I teach all these styles and cover historical performance styles. I brought the Brazilian early music concert/ Opera Project to Humboldt State University while I was their bass teacher during 2012-2014.

Music Production

I have worked as a studio musician on PBS projects, recording studio projects with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and recorded CDs for premieres and events like the 100th anniversary of the Washington National Cathedral.

Piano

I have played piano and read music since I was 7 years old. I passed out of my piano comps at the Cleveland Institute of Music as a String Bass Performance major. I took lessons at CIM while I was studying bass. I have taught in music stores, home teaching companies and at my own studio for more than 20 years.

Sight Singing

I taught sight singing as Memphis State University as part of my full graduate assistantship.
I work with the student to learn how to sing a pitch in tune that is being played and also pitch memory ....then we advance to first hear whole steps and 1/2 steps, identify perfect intervals, and learn how to measure atonal intervals from that point. Ex ...hear P4 go up 1/2 step = tritone....or P5 go down 1/2 step=tritone.

Violin

I have taught violin privately and for music stories and in home lesson companies. I also teach viola, cello and bass. I directed a Montessori string program I started and taught all the instruments and ensemble playing.
