About Carl

Experienced Music Teacher and Academic Tutor in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn, New York.

MUSIC: I teach piano, voice, sight-reading, ear-training, music theory and analysis, introductory composition, and music history. I have taught for 10+ years. I have a BA in Music from Brown University and have completed additional work at Columbia University, UC Boulder, UCSB, and the Aspen School of Music.

LAW: I tutor first year law students in all subjects, as well as some advanced legal subjects. I have tutored law students for 5 years. I have a JD from Rutgers.

OTHER ACADEMIC SUBJECTS: I tutor all elementary school subjects, most secondary school subjects, and some college subjects. I am currently earning a M.Ed. with accreditation at Columbia University.

I work with children and adults of all ages, using a mix of student-centered (constructivist) learning techniques along with more traditional approaches. My teaching philosophy focuses on permitting students to establish regularly a personal, authentic relationship with each subject. This creates a foundation upon which to introduce rigor. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons from time to time to monitor the progress of their child. Adult students who are not in school can choose a pace that best fits their busy lives.

FINANCIAL AID: Scholarships are available to anyone requiring financial assistance. I believe no one should be deprived of an opportunity to learn for lack of financial resources.

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

As an undergrad at Brown University I studied basic ear training, advanced ear training, and atonal ear training, and tutored struggling students. I have been a section leader in college and professional choirs for 4 years, teaching parts to singers of all levels. I have done the same as a music director for more than 10 musical theatre productions in college and community/summer stock theatre. Currently, I am pursuing a Master's in Music and Music Education from Teacher's College, Columbia University.

General Music

I have 10 years of piano and voice teaching experience. I hold a music degree from Brown University and am currently earning an M.Ed. with accreditation from Columbia University. I have also studied at the Aspen Music School, the Vocal Institute of UCSB, and UC Boulder.

Law

I graduated from Rutgers Law-Newark in the top 25% of the class with a 3.63 GPA. I tutored 1L students during and after law school. I was an editor of the Rutgers Business Law Review, Rutgers Race and the Law Review, and University of Miami's Race and Social Justice Law Review.

Piano

I have 10+ years of piano and voice teaching experience.
