About Isaac

I am a graduate of the Greatbatch School of Music, Houghton College, with a degree in violin performance. I have taken additional studies at the Eastman Community Music School in Rochester, NY, and my teachers include Oleh Krysa (Eastman), Tamamo Gibbs (Kansas City Symphony), and Donna Lorenzo (Houghton College). I am a registered Music Together teacher; Music Together is a program for children ages birth-5 years old that focuses on creating music together in a family/community environment.

My personal teaching style is a blend of Suzuki method and Montessori philosophy; I believe that the best way to create an artist is to set a few guideposts, and then let my student find her or his own voice.

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 hold a bachelor of music degree from the Greatbatch School of Music, Houghton College, in musical studies and violin. I have completed ear training courses through twelve-tone and world music pitch collections, including 4-voice textures. My primary instrument is the violin, which requires greater pitch skill because there are no keys or frets, you must use your ears to be in tune.

General Music

I hold a bachelor of music degree from the Greatbatch School of Music, Houghton College, in musical studies and violin performance. beyond musical performance, I am capable and competent in music history, theory, aural skills, sight singing, and world music. beyond the classical realm I have performed as lead singer and guitarist for the band "Undignified."
I am a registered Music Together teacher for children ages birth to five years. Music Together uses sung folk-like songs and simple instruments to "make music together" as a community.

Music History

I hold a bachelor of music degree from the Greatbatch School of Music, Houghton college, in musical studies and violin performance. I have completed studies that include:
Music History, Ancient to Baroque
Music History, Baroque to Pre-Classical
Music History, Classical to Romantic
Music History, Post-Romantic to Contemporary
I have also completed studies in World Music, History of Rock N' Roll, and Jazz Studies. In addition to my training in college, I have completed course-work in Music History at the Eastman Community Music School, Rochester, NY. (The Eastman School of Music is ranked the #1 school of music in America.)

Sight Singing

I hold a bachelor of music degree from the Greatbatch School of Music, Houghton College, in musical studies and violin performance. I have sight-singing skill that includes atonal pitch collections in various metrical settings. A core element of my undergraduate preparation has been sight-singing. I implement sight-singing and sight reading quite heavily, because audiation of pitch before it is sung or played is crucial to intonation and expression, and also because auditions for any ensemble of any kind generally requires some form of music making on sight.

Violin

I hold a diploma from the Greatbatch School of Music, Houghton College, in violin performance.
I am Suzuki trained, follow the Montessori method, and am a registered Music Together early childhood music teacher.
My teachers include Oleh Krysa from the Eastman School of Music, Tamamo Gibbs from the Kansas City Symphony, and Donna Lorenzo from Houghton College.
