About Joseph

My experience is wide ranging, as a vocal music teacher in both the Cranford School System and Jersey City School System. I taught students from Pre K-8th grade.
My chorus won many awards and performed at many public Venues. One student of mine attended Juliard School Music in N.Y.C. and several students were accepted to the State Chorus which is an elite group. I coached several participates in their performances in The Miss Jersey Pageant. This was a great experience. I owned a School of Music for 2 years with about 150 Students and other teachers. After that, I returned to public school education. While teaching in the Jersey City School System, I was a private voice and piano instructor at a studio in Hazlet N.J. for 2 and One Half years.
It is my joy to see students grow musically and become a well rounded person.

Thank you,
Joe T.

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.

Ear Training

To receive a Degree in music Education, I had to pass Advanced Ear Training Course. This included taking dictation, where the professor would play a passage of music, giving you the key signature. You would then write the passage down using the proper notes, bar lines, tempo, and rhythm. This is achieved by learning the intervals of the scale and knowing what they sound like. Example: a major third, perfect fifth, eight, etc.

General Music

I have spent 21 Years as a General music teacher in public school and know the best materials to achieve this study.

Music History

I studied music and achieved a B.A. and Masters in music education. While studying I learned About all the periods of ex. The Baroque Period, Classical Period etc. I have studied the lives and music of Bach, Beethoven and others. I can orchestrate a composition in all historical styles. If you need to study music history, I will help you succeed.

Piano

I started playing the piano when I was nine years old. I played on stage for many recitals in college where I won a series of awards. One of my piano students was excepted to Juliard School Of Music of which I am very proud. I exhibit a vibrate lesson program of the Classical and Pop Styles. I have taught privately for five and a half years with much success appreciation from my students. I have also have performed on pipe organ with three keyboards and pedals. I am qualified to teach students of all ages through adults.

Sight Singing

While in college studying music, I studied sight singing: Learning the key signatures and singing the primary chord, using the solfeggio system of Do Re Mi, and learning to sing with the proper rhythm and tempo. Sight Singing also helps you develop relative pitch, which is in lieu of perfect pitch.

Voice (Music)

I have been a vocal music teacher for 21 years in the public school system. I taught privately for 5 years for Music associates school of Music and Absolute Music studio. I have trained students for State chorus Julliard school of music to become Professional singers and trained various Miss New Jersey contestants with their vocal performances.
