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.
I began my theory training in 1986 at Cabrillo Community College. In 1989, I went on to study harmony, ear training, and solfege at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA with Judith Ross, a student of Nadia Boulanger. From there I went on to pursue my BA at Indiana University and passed all my theory entrance exams. When I came to USC to pursue my PhD in Musicology, I also passed all of my theory and orchestration entrance exams.
I received my BA from Indiana University in Music Composition and Criticism, a degree program I designed so that I could study with Peter Burkholder from the musicology faculty. I am currently a PhD Candidate (ABD) in Musicology at USC and was awarded the Teaching Fellowship by my department.
I have studied piano privately since I was a child. I studied piano at the college level from 1989-1992 at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA. I have been a private piano teacher in Los Angeles, CA since 1997. I have taught piano at the Los Angeles Music and Art school in East Los Angeles, CA for five years.
