I currently hold a position as a programmer/analyst, but work from home three days per week. I am available at 3 PM on these work-at-home days, at 4 PM on the 2 days I commute, and am also available on the weekends. Many references are available upon request.

I also offer Piano lessons to children and adults of all ages. I offer 38 years of experience with over 35 students. Lessons are taught in a traditional manner with emphasis on the classics so that the student will be able to play all types of music. Lessons also include music appreciation and history, music theory and ear training. For my available hours, please see paragraph above. References are readily available upon request.

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.

Piano

I took piano lessons for 12 years during which time I focused on learning the classics but also learned music theory. At age 17, I participated in the NYSSMA Festival and received an A rating on Level 6 (highest level) while performing Chopin's Fantasie Impromtu. Also at age 17, I gave a recital, playing music from Bach, Brahms, Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, and Debussy, which was 90 minutes of memorized music. In college, I was a music minor. I have taught piano for almost 40 years, with about 35 students of all ages and levels, and have references readily available.
