About Barry

I have 25 years of experience teaching in public schools. My primary subject areas were band and choir. Teaching in smaller districts in Texas meant that I also spent time teaching math, history, English, and even P.E. I spent many days tutoring my music students, in almost every academic field, to insure their academic eligibility. I really believe that the most valuable tool anyone can teach another is how to learn. I would say that is where I have been most successful. Many of my former students are in education themselves and in a wide variety of other fields.

I enrolled in college with a double major in Computer Science and Music Ed. I graduated in 4 years with over 180 credit hours, but unfortunately, was unable to conclude my math requirements.

I will do everything possible to not just understand how something should be done, but also why. Learning is work, but we do our best work when we enjoy it. I want to make our work as enjoyable as possible by leading you to a successful understanding.

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.

French Horn

I spent over 25 years teaching music in Texas public schools. My Bachelors in Music Education, and Masters in Music have allowed me to instruct students on every instrument and in areas such as theory, and music history. I have taken master classes on every instrument and feel confident in my ability to improve any students performance level.

Trombone

I have both a Bachelors in Music education and a Masters in Music as well. As the only music educator in the school districts I taught in, I was responsible for all music instruction for all interested students. I have successfully advanced students to region, area, and state competitions on essentially every instrument in the band.

Trumpet

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Texas Tech University. I also have a Masters Degree in Music from Texas Tech University. I have 25 years of experience teaching in public schools of Texas. All of those years were in small districts where every student, regardless of their instrument, were my complete responsibility. I have placed students in All Region, Area and All State bands on every instrument.
