Greetings!

I am currently a part-time Doctor of Musical Arts in Music Education student at Boston University finishing my dissertation. I have 25+ years of teaching general music and choral music in public and private schools as well as private piano and guitar lessons to students of all ages. I was a music theory tutor as far back as earning my B.A. in Music Education before I began my teaching career. I have also served as a piano accompanist for a variety of performances. For fun I play keyboard in a rock/pop/blues band.

I have a calm, nurturing approach and work with each students individual needs.

Thanks for your consideration!

Music History

Over the years, I have taken several music history courses from general (Medieval, Renaissance, Classical, Romantic, 20th Century) to specific courses such as Mozart, Beethoven, The Russian Five Composers, Bach and their works. Recently I passed a musicology exam as part of the requirement for my doctoral work for which I examined an area of music history much more in depth.

Music

Ear Training,

Ear Training

I am qualified to teach ear training for several reasons. As an undergraduate student I took ear training courses and passed ear training exams in order to get accepted into the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University (not an easy school to get accepted into). I also teach ear training with all of my students (piano, guitar and voice) because it is necessary for all musicians (young, old, amateur and professional) to have a developed ear for listening to music.
General Music,

General Music

I am currently a general music teacher at a local middle school in Hamilton, MA. I've taught K-8 general music for over twenty years in private and public schools.
Guitar,

Guitar

I have been playing the guitar for over 30 years. It is not my main instrument, but I use it in the classroom to accompany students when they sing. I also have a guitar unit for middle school where I teach students to read open chord diagrams, play melodies and to play in an ensemble setting. I also have a guitar club after school.
