About Samuel

I have tutored piano, voice, ear training, and theory. I have had about 11 years college experience. I hold a bachelor's degree in General Music from Arkansas Tech University from 2004 and a master's degree in Music in Carillon Pedagogy from Missouri State University from 2012. I have taught in both Springfield, MO and Russellville, AR. I try to find what the students' needs are so that I can tailor the lessons to them. I teach in a public place on my college campus usually, but I can come to the home. I can also meet at a cafe or other public place for theory tutoring if desired.

I will set goals and a time period to meet them. I also try to find music literature where the student can learn skills and play an active role in selecting what literature he or she wishes to study. I am open to teaching a variety of styles and time periods as I have done for previous students. I look forward to teaching and studying with you.

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.
