I have 5 years of teaching experience at the college level. At the University of Alabama, I served as an assistant instructor in music theory, aural skills, and composition. As a lecturer at Kasetsart University in Thailand, I taught undergraduate theory course focusing on harmony and formal analysis. My teaching approach is rooted in a commitment to motivating students to make their own creative discoveries and apply their knowledge of music to their specific musical discipline so that they may come to better understand and appreciate the techniques relative to their own performance and scholarship.
I am also attentive to individuals' differing levels of knowledge and innate learning ability. I believe that all students regardless of background or experience can excel in their musical endeavors if they are ambitious and work consistently and sensibly.

Composition (Music)

As a Teaching Assistant at University of Alabama, I taught composition to undergraduate students in private classroom setting. In lessons, I guided students composing short pieces for a small group of instruments, exploring less familiar scales, writing counterpoint more freely, and making some explorations with harmonic progressions. Student reports of my teaching were enthusiastic and positive

Ear Training,

Ear Training

At the University of Alabama, I served as a graduate teaching assistant in music theory. l taught first-year undergraduate aural skills which included ear training, sight-singing, and dictation techniques. I also graded the homework assignment and administered mid-term and final examinations. I had the opportunity to work with special needs students. I spent after- school time helping them improve the necessary skills. In fact, I tried not to focus on their weaknesses or make them feel that they became a burden on everyone. I always encouraged them to practice the right way and stay positive when they could not do it right.

Very Good At Explaning, great teacher!!!

Balee was very patient and explained intervals in a way that made it so easy to grasp. He was patient until I fully understood the topic. He is very professional and experienced in music theory and knows how to teach. I would recommend him to any student who is taking a music theory class and needs help and wants a patient teacher who can help!

Really Helpful!

We went over harmonic progressions for my midterm, and it was extremely helpful. He pointed out things on my study guide that I wouldn't have noticed. I was sent examples and materials that I could refer to later use as well.

Fantastic Tutor

Balee is a very professional and knowledgeable tutor. After unsuccessful sessions with 3 separate AP Music Theory tutors, he taught me in a way that I was able to quickly grasp the concepts. I was very impressed with his content, teaching style and patience. I would highly recommend him!

Balee is very detailed and patient in explaining the musical concepts to me. He makes the lessons interactive and fun. I would definitely use his service again in the future.

Very Kind and Awesome Tutor

Balee helped me go over my music theory homework and he was very thorough in his explanations and super friendly. I am looking forward to working with him and you would be lucky to have him as a tutor! He will make sure you understand the material so that you can become a better musician and student :)

Skillful composition tutor

Balee helped me with the composition of my piano song. He's very knowledgeable in theory, as well as music composition. He has years of training, as well as the practical experience in creating his own music (which is very good). He's also a delightful individual, making him a joy to communicate with. Highly recommended!

Christian, 1 lesson with Balee

Very knowledgeable and patience.

Balee is a very nice theory teacher. It was very easy to understand for me and helped prepare what I needed help on before the class had started. Out of all the other teachers I have tried, he is the best one I have found and I will look forward to have another session with him.

Great Teacher!

Balee helped me understand the content that was confusing in my college course. Since my courses were moved to online, it was hard to understand. Balee helped me save my semester and pass.
