"...for not great understanding alone, not intelligence alone, nor both together, make genius. Love! Love! Love! that is the soul of genius." - Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin, entry in Mozart's souvenir album

Need to understand and love basic harmony? We can do that. Need to improve your dictation skills and learn to love the challenge of accurate hearing? No problem. Want to fall in love with serialsim/spectralism/minimalism (etc)? No problem.

Or do you just want to blow your your Intro to Music Theory final out of the water?

I have a PhD in composition, have taught variations on composing, music theory and ear training for over 10 years, working with students ages 13 to 40, from beginners to experts. I won a Teaching Excellence award at UC San Diego for my work in undergraduate ear training and curriculum development. I tailor my style to yours, so that you get exactly what you need to meet your educational and musical goals.

And through it all, the focus remains on the soul of genius.
