I'm Liam! I live in NYC working as a Data Scientist, but music has always been my passion. I have a bachelors in English and an MA in Computational Linguistics, so I'm no stranger to academia. I have experience tutoring in a variety of subjects, including math, linguistics, music, English, etc. I've always considered teaching to be my strong suit, and would love to help anyone and everyone get a better appreciation of the amazing world of music!

I have 20 years of experience in playing and producing music. I studied in private lessons and at university for 15 years learning Jazz, and have been continuing my studies for the last 5. I am a self-proclaimed music theory nerd, and love to talk about it with everyone! I can teach beginner-intermediate students classical, pop, jazz, or anything else!

Composition (Music)

Composition (Music)

As a part of my general music training, I've learned the ins and outs of composition. Whether it be contemporary classical, baroque, or contemporary Jazz, I have studied the various stylistic elements and aspects of each of them. Part of my training was collegiate, but I believe that the best way of learning is doing and analyzing the best composers of the past.

Piano

Piano

I have 20 years of experience studying the piano and music theory both privately and in an academic context. Of that 20 years, I spent 15 studying Jazz and Jazz theory which has given me a rock solid foundation in both my playing and my understanding of music. I understand the importance of theory to any genre, and can teach technique and theory in a fun and engaging way to any age group.

Ear Training,

Ear Training

My jazz training started and continues to be mainly focused around ear training. I studied ear training at university and continued privately afterwards. As an improviser, I know the importance of being able to put what you hear in your head into practice, and because of this I make sure that my ear training is as good if not better than my chops. I ear train daily, and know how essential having a good ear is to any serious musician.
General Music,

General Music

I have been a student of music for 20+ years, whether it be studying theory, history, instrumentation, composing, or production. My main instrument is piano, which I've studied for all of the 20+ years, but I am also proficient in guitar and bass. I focus much of my education on theory and composition, which I have been studying for 15+ years as a part of my Jazz training.
Music Theory,

Music Theory

15+ years of Jazz theory and general music theory training has given me a solid foundation of knowledge that can be applied to any genre. Whether it be harmony, melody, song writing, music history, or even signal processing, I can teach whatever you hope to get out of music theory!

Professional and competent keyboard instructor

I needed help improving my blues improvisation skills. Liam was tremendously helpful. He has excellent ear training skills. Liam can quickly dissect live music and identify the constituent parts. He has a logical and efficient teaching methodology. I was in a pinch and needed advice on how to break up monotonous blues soloing. He provided me with several solutions. One would be hard-pressed to find a more competent keyboard instructor. Additionally, he provided me with a comprehensive lesson summary.

Jeffery, 1 lesson with Liam

Great teaching style for my needs!

My first session with Liam was great. I came with my goals for what I wanted to get out of piano lessons, and he came with his expertise to help figure out what skills I would need to develop to achieve those goals and designed our lesson around that. I don’t like prescriptive learning, so I think that Liam’s teaching style is a good fit for me who is not quite a beginner but still has a lot of gaps in my knowledge of the fundamentals.

Liam has helped me understand the basic of musics and teaching piano. I have currently taken his 3 classes and I am liking it

Chetali, 5 lessons with Liam

Very Helpful!

Liams been great in helping me get a better grasp of the piano and only in the short amount of time 3 lessons, but I definitely plan on taking a many more! He's patient and very knowledgeable and gives clear instructions and resources to help with practicing - doesn't feel overwhelming at all and learning a lot at the same time!

Levi, 17 lessons with Liam

Knowledgeable and patient

We covered Inversions and the various kinds of 7th chords. We also covered the various notes used in jazz and blues music and the structure of the blues as a progression. He also provided examples to practice at my own pace.

Mitchel, 30 lessons with Liam

Extremely Knowledgeable and makes the lessons fun!

Liam makes the lesson fun and interesting. We are working on filling in the blanks with respect to music theory. Each week Liam has helped me look at reharmonization in a different way. As a guitarist I did not see the theory as clearly as I do on the piano. His ability to demonstrate and simplify the theory has been amazing, I highly recommend Liam!
