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.

Composition (Music)

I am an award winning composer and write music in the Classical, Jazz, and World Music genres. I have produced two albums of my own compositions which are both available through itunes. I have been hired to write music for theater productions, art galleries, and films, as well as a variety of music ensembles.

Ear Training

I work with sight-singing, interval recognition, harmonic analysis, and rhythmic exercises to strengthen ear training skills. As an arranger and composer, my ability to work through hearing music needs to be very sharp. Through transcription exercises from many different genres of music and body percussion exercises, I make ear training fun and exciting.

General Music

I teach private harp and voice lessons and also basic piano lessons. I began studying and playing music at age five and am very passionate about sharing my craft. I am enthusiastic and flexible to each individual student's needs.

Voice (Music)

I am a Classical, Jazz, and Folk singer. I have trained in bel canto technique and have performed in several operas in leading roles. I perform as a Jazz and Folk singer throughout the Los Angeles area. My vocal technique is based on relaxation and in my teaching, I strive to bring out and strengthen the unique quality of each student's voice.
