About John

Classically trained since age five in piano, I have worked as a musician at the Julliard School, Miami City Ballet, been a member of Broadway show orchestras, and toured the Americas, so my experience is pretty diverse. I am also a songwriter with songs in film and TV, an accomplished (and published) poet. I am an instructor who is patient, motivating, challenging, and above all, encouraging. I believe that learning music is built upon a strong relationship between teacher and student. This relationship involves good communication, honesty, open mindedness, and most importantly the desire to LEARN and have FUN.

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.

Bible Studies

I love the Lord Jesus with my whole heart, soul, mind and strength and love my neighbor as myself. I am a worship leader at my church and have been or assisted in worship leading at several large churches in Miami. At a local prep school, a K-12 Christian School in Miami, I taught Music, Drama, English and Bible Class, and helped lead the YA Bible study.

Ear Training

While at undergrad at Miami-Dade College, in two years of sight-singing class, I missed a total of two questions during the span of our weekly tests. Ten questions a quiz, every Friday for two years. That's two wrong out of roughly three or four hundred questions. I'm trained in sight-singing/ear-training since the age of five. I am a professional musician who has toured the Americas and performed in Europe.

General Music

I currently teach music at an academy, and have taught Music and Drama at a prep school in Miami. I have studied piano for over twenty years, including college. I had scholarship offers from UM and FIU, among other music schools. This past summer, I was one of 14 pianists worldwide to be selected to attend and perform in the Dublin International Piano Festival. I have taught private piano lessons for over ten years.

Music History

I have studied piano for over twenty years, which has given me an extensive foundation in Music History. In college, I also studied Music History. I have taught Music, Piano, Guitar, and Voice at prep schools in Miami for the past five years, and have given private classical piano lessons for over ten years.

Piano

This past summer, I was one of 14 pianists worldwide to be selected to attend and perform in the Dublin International Piano Festival. I have taught private piano lessons for over ten years.

Public Speaking

I was a front-man for the Miami group which performed across America. I have been reading my poetry at Poetry Readings all across America for almost ten years. I am a schoolteacher and have been a worship leader/assisted in worship for several large churches in Miami and Europe. In all these areas, I have had to demonstrate some aspects of excellent public speaking technique.

Sight Singing

As a classical pianist, I have been trained in sight-singing/ear-training since the age of five. I am a professional musician who has toured the Americas and performed in Europe, worked for Broadway and the Julliard School, and have had to sight read and sing for numerous theatrical auditions.

Songwriting

I have been writing songs since the age of nine. I have been voted, with my brother, Best Song-writer In Miami by the Miami New Times. I have had songs placed in various films, including "Tom Dowd and the Language of Music," the critically-acclaimed biopic of the legendary producer of Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, et al.
