State University of NY at Binghamton (Music)
I have taught music privately for the past 20+ years, and have taught Music Theory (Advanced and Honors) in a high school as a Band Director in high school. I can play piano and all related keyboard instruments proficiently, and have also studied brass instruments during my years of training. I have 40 years of experience playing music professionally in many situations. I currently teach private piano lessons in my area, but would like to teach Music Theory (my focused area of study) and Music Technology (my passionate area of study).
I do put together my lesson plans for all students on a one to one basis, and supply much of the written lesson material to them for free. I can travel outside of my stated zip code. I have always had good results with most students (in school or privately) and look forward to finding those students with a passion as strong as mine in this field.

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.
