About Will

I graduated from Rochester Community and Technical College with an Associate of Fine Arts degree in Music Education/Instrumental.

I am currently in my final year at Winona State University and will soon be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Music - Liberal Arts.

As the capstone of my program, I am putting together a composition recital to be performed in April 2013.

I have taken courses in general Music Theory, Musical Form & Analysis, Music History, Orchestration & Instrumentation, Instrumental Methods including Woodwinds, Strings, Brass and Percussion.

My primary instrument is Euphonium/Baritone and my close secondary is Trombone. My tertiary instrument is Tuba. I am skilled at Trumpet and proficient on Horn. I am also proficient on all Woodwind Instruments and Piano.

I taught private lessons at Schmitt Music for a year for Brass Instruments and Music Theory.

I am eager to teach and gain experience because I am currently applying for positions as Teaching Assistant at various Graduate Schools.

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.

General Music

Having been involved in music for 13 years I have accumulated a lot of knowledge about the subject.

Some classes I have taken round out my knowledge base more than just theory. I have taken Music Appreciation, World Music, History of Rock and Roll, Popular Music in the United States, Audio Production, Instrumental literature and styles, as well as performing ensembles such as Concert Choir, Show Choir, Jazz Bands, and various Concert Bands including two local Community Bands.

Classes I will soon be taking include the Science of Music, and Instrumental Pedagogy in Low Brass.

Music History

I have taken the two undergrad classes for Music History in my Music Program as well as the historical survey of instrumental literature and styles and aced them all.

I studied using the Norton anthology for Music History and purchased for myself supplementary texts and treatises, as well as studied complete scores of many major composers from Bach to Gorecki.

I have researched and turned in papers on both the Greek Music Theory of Aristoxenus and Analytical techniques of Heinrich Schenker. I have given presentations on both Holst's Second Suite in F and Vaughn Williams' Tuba Concerto.

Music Theory

I have taken three years of Music Theory, as well as supplementary classes in Form and Analysis and Orchestration/Instrumentation.

Theory is my primary focus in my undergrad degree as I intend to ultimately teach the subject at a university. It is both my favorite and best subject.

Trombone

I have been playing trombone in both concert and jazz band settings for the past 13 years.

I have studied using the Rubank method as well as supplements such as the Reginald Fink Tenor Clef Book and the Rochut Melodius Etudes Book.

Trumpet

While it is not my primary instrument, my proficiency with brass carries over into the trumpet and though I have never formally performed on the instrument I have taught several lessons on it and am capable of playing at an intermediate level.
