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

I have two years experience teaching ear training as a part-time instructor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I taught MUS 102E, MUS 102F for majors and MUS 101 for non-majors. My students were considered remedial level, as they had to pass my course in order to begin the formal music major curriculum. I have high standards for my students, and set the passing grade at 80% with very good results. I am an advocate of movable "do," and was trained in the Kodaly method as an undergraduate.

French Horn

I'm a freelance horn player in NYC, subbing on Broadway shows and elsewhere as a local 802 member. I have a masters degree in horn performance. I have an extensive resume of musical accomplishments.

General Music

I have a master of music degree in horn performance, and a bachelor of music degree in music history and horn performance. I am a professional musician, and am currently performing with the Florida Grand Opera and the Palm Beach Symphony. I spent a year abroad performing with the Sarajevo Philharmonic in Sarajevo Bosnia, and have been studying music since I was 8.

Music History

I have a bachelor's degree in music history from the Hartt School, and my master's degree was academically more rigorous than the average music degree. I am well read and well versed in the nuances of Western music history, and have spent time studying ethnomusicology/world music as well.

Music Theory

I have three years of teaching experience at the college level. I taught music theory and ear training to freshman music majors and non-majors.
