About Chase

Patient and Knowledgeable Professional & College-Trained Music Tutor

MM Music Theory & Composition: Westminster Choir College
BA Music: Wellesley College

I teach private and classroom music theory and composition, as well as cello and piano. I currently teach an AP music theory course at a private school. I have over 35 years as a private music teacher. I have much patience, and I take the time to explain things.

I am as comfortable one-on-one as I am in small or large classrooms. My teachers have included professors at New England Conservatory, Boston University, Wellesley College, and Westminster Choir College. I am currently chair or the Performing Arts Department at St. Michael's High School, and teach privately after school, and in the summertime at my studio.

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.

All of my students experience sight-singing in the course of their music work with me, whether at school, or privately. Sight Singing in an integral part of becoming a better musician. I employ the Solfege system with either fixed "DO" or moveable "DO".
