About Mike


Bio

I’m a student at the Crane School of Music who is a big nerd about all things (mostly history and music). I’m currently training to be a full-time teacher now and I love tutoring on a one-on-one level. I’ll do what I can to give you a better grasp on what you’re trying to learn, and maybe show you pictures of my dog:)

My experience in teaching comes from my teaching degree and my work as an ARC Special Needs Summer Camp Counselor. I've constructed and led curriculum for elementary students...

I’m a student at the Crane School of Music who is a big nerd about all things (mostly history and music). I’m currently training to be a full-time teacher now and I love tutoring on a one-on-one level. I’ll do what I can to give you a better grasp on what you’re trying to learn, and maybe show you pictures of my dog:)

My experience in teaching comes from my teaching degree and my work as an ARC Special Needs Summer Camp Counselor. I've constructed and led curriculum for elementary students (ages 7-11) and middle school students (ages 12-14). I've worked with a dozen members of my class at Crane, teaching vocal pedagogy, music theory, and music directing vocal groups. Among these experiences, I have also led music workshops with students at all grade levels, giving feedback and musical input and supporting their progress every step of the way.

My philosophy towards teaching is to take my time with individual students to give them the time and work they need to be successful. I am very passionate about working with people and teaching subjects in a way that is more accessible to more students, and not being afraid to rephrase or redo sections of work to allow for better understanding and residue of a subject.

I am currently a student at the Crane School of Music, studying to be a teacher/opera performer. This is my favorite thing to not only do, but to teach to others! Special areas include: Music Theory, Music History, Sight Singing, Aural Skills, Vocal Pedagogy and technique, etc. History Education would have been my major if it wasn’t music. I’ve taken AP World and US history in high school and I still keep and read through the textbooks occasionally. Special areas of mine include: U.S. History and Politics, U.S. Presidents, Revolutionary War, U.K. History and Politics, Roman History, the World Wars, etc.

I’m free most week nights and weekends. Reach out at my email if you need anything! Don’t be afraid to reach out with any questions/comments/concerns!

Piano

I have experience in playing piano in lessons, recitals, and in front of a classroom. I began taking piano lessons back in 2013, learning the basics and moving into Bach. Since I've started college, I have taken piano courses every semester, working from basic chord patterns to accompanying soloists to playing choral parts on piano.

Music

Ear Training,

Ear Training

Throughout high school and college, I have learned and been trained in hearing a selection of music and both singing it back and writing it down in a score. I've also worked a lot with learning the different chords of different scales and hearing and describing the differences between them. This has allowed me to better help my classmates and all of my friends who are struggling though these courses. I am currently a student at the Crane School of Music.
Music Theory,

Music Theory

I took AP Music Theory in high school, and am now taking college courses in Music Theory and how to apply it to a real world and classroom setting.

Sight Singing,

Sight Singing

I have not only become an expert in sightreading both easy and complex repertoire, but I have also been a great help to friends of mine who've needed it. I've received perfect scores from NYSSMA Sightreading exams, and a 4.0 grade in all of my Aural Skills classes in college.
Voice (Music)

Voice (Music)

I am currently working on my Vocal Performance degree at the Crane School of Music. I have performed in numerous a cappella/barbershop groups/choirs, and have music directed a number of them as well. I have performed in several operas, including the world premiere of "Mayo" by Tom Cipullo.
