About Geoffery

Music is such an integral part of life. I have always been fascinated with how music is created and performed. That is why I have devoted my life to the study and creation of music. Having received a Master's Degree in Music Composition as well as participating in summer music festivals like the Atlantic Music Festival, I know that hard work and dedication pays off. Music is well worth the hard work.

I specialize in giving lessons in a variety of musical topics including: music theory, music history, guitar (classical, jazz, and rock), trombone, trumpet, voice and piano. I teach privately at my home as well as at several small music schools throughout Orange County, CA.

I strive to keep students engaged through constant musical interaction and expected progress points. I push for my students to interact as much as possible with music in several aspects.

I have received two degree's in music composition. I have also participated in several music festivals such as the Atlantic Music Festival and the CSUF New Music Festival. I have been an active guitarist and trombonist for over 10 years and have performed in various bands and groups ranging from small trios to large orchestras.

I look forward to hearing and working with you!

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.

In response to a last minute request (same-day), Geoffrey showed up at my house and tutored my daughter in trombone to help her get over her panic the night before a school audition. He was patient and knowledgeable, and when it was over, my daughter felt MUCH better about the performance she had to give the next day. Thanks, Geoffrey!
