Ear Training,

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.

Knowledgeable, patient and helpful.

Liza is an excellent tutor. Music theory is an extremely difficult subject and my daughter needed a lot of help. Liza was patient, methodical and, ultimately, very helpful. My daughter got 100% on her final project and an A in her AP Music Theory class.
