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.

Clarinet

I have been studying clarinet for 15 years. I have a BM and MM in Clarinet Performance from two world renowned institutions. I have performed hundreds of concerts all across the country and have 8 years of teaching experience. I have a busy teaching schedule in NYC and am always looking to teach students eager to learn.

Ear Training

To obtain both my BM and MM, I had to take classes and pass competitive exams for Ear Training in subjects including sight-singing, dictation, piano, and harmony training.

Music Theory

I have completed a BM and MM from two conservatories of music.

I am learning the clarinet with Kevin. He is a very patient and funny teacher. I thought my first class with him went very well and he gives me very useful tips to me when I need help with something.
