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.

Clarinet

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Ithaca College and a Master's degree in Music Performance from New Jersey City University.

I have performed on the clarinet in a wide variety of settings, including Broadway pit orchestras, concert bands, orchestras, cruise ships and jazz bands. I began teaching the clarinet in 2000 and have taught many students since then.

Ear Training

I have a Bachelor's in music education from Ithaca College, and a Master's in music performance from New Jersey City University. Both degrees included ear training courses and components. In my study of jazz, I regularly transcribe solos by ear and practice playing pieces in all 12 keys. I also frequently assign ear-training exercises to my students, having them figure out simple songs on their own, and then progressing to more difficult songs.

Flute

I have enjoyed performing extensively on flute in pit orchestras, concert bands, orchestras, cruise ships and jazz bands. I have taught flute privately and in schools since 2000.

Music Theory

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and a Master's degree in Music Performance. Both degrees included extensive training in music theory. My master's thesis required in-depth analysis of three works for woodwinds, in which I explored form, harmonic structure, melodic development, motivic development and rhythmic development. I spend a lot of time teaching music theory during lessons because the ability to play with meaningful expression comes out of a knowledge of theory and how a piece is constructed.

Piano

I took 10 years of private classical piano lessons and have taught piano privately and in schools since 2000. I accompanied many school choirs for 9 years and have provided piano entertainment at a number of private parties and events. Additionally, I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and a Master's degree in Music Performance, with extensive theory and ear training from both degrees.

Saxophone

I have performed extensively on saxophone in Broadway pit orchestras, concert bands, orchestras, cruise ships, and jazz bands. I have a Bachelor's degree in music education from Ithaca College, as well as a Master's degree in music performance in multiple woodwinds from New Jersey City University. I have taught saxophone privately and in schools since 2000.

Sight Singing

Both of my music degrees (Bachelor's in Music Education, Master's in Music Performance) included extensive training in sight singing. I use sight singing skills on a daily basis for my own practicing and performing. Additionally, I sang in choirs for 9 years, gaining further experience and facility.

I teach sight singing in conjunction with ear training as the two are inseparable and dependent on one another.

Violin

I have a bachelor's degree in music education from Ithaca College and a master's degree in music performance from New Jersey City University. I have taught violin privately and in schools for 14 years and have played with various bands and chamber groups in classical, folk and rock styles. In 2009 I designed and implemented a new string program for a private grade school in Philadelphia, PA.
