Hello,

I am excited to share about my experience with you. My name is Troy P. I have taught in the public school system since 2016. I have taught band, choir, music composition, music theory, percussion ensemble, and jazz band. I graduated from Western Kentucky University with an overall 4.0 GPA, including a thesis based in music history. I have taught private lessons in performance since 2014.

I passed all relevant courses in college with an A. I am most advanced in music history, followed by music theory and composition. Ear training and sight singing round out my abilities. I especially enjoy history in the middle ages and the 20th century.

I am very approachable and do not mind to answer any questions that you may have about my tutoring experience. I have passed the proficiency quizzes for reading, computer, and history, in addition to others, on Wyzant's platform. I was the #1 Tutor in my local area based on hours for January 2021.

Knowledgeable and helpful

He taught me how to access my diaphragm. I was able to learn how to warm up my vocal cords. Troy is very good at showing me what I need to do and what I need to accomplish in order to pursue music therapy and audition for the program.
