About Joseph

As a lifelong lover of music and devoted student, music education is an essential part of my life. Understanding music is a universal gateway to all areas of life: math, science, language, mind, body, and spirit. Being well versed in theory and history also lends to success as a performer, conductor, and composer. I look forward to helping students succeed and become wonderfully talented and smart musicians.

I am a composer, conductor, and trumpet player currently working on a dual Masters in Composition and Conducting. I have tutored and taught lessons in music theory, history, trumpet, and composition from middle school to collegiate level.

My primary focus on lessons will be comprehension of the subject, versatility, and global relation; how does this specific concept relate to the world of music, and how can it affect you personally?

I'm looking forward to teaching and learning with you!

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.

Composition (Music)

I have a bachelor's in music with a focus on composition from Sam Houston State University. I am currently a Master's student in Composition and Conducting. I approach teaching each student individually, discuss their personal approach to their composition, their goals of the piece, then observe, listen, compare, and discuss how to proceed, better, or enhance their composition.

General Music

I have a bachelor's in music with a focus on composition from Sam Houston State University. I also graduated with 170+ credits in extraneous study in non-required music courses including 20th Century Musical Analysis, Advanced Orchestration, Advanced Music Theory, Post-Tonal Theory, Schenkerian Analysis, and History Courses. I was a paid Music Theory tutor for 2 years and a Private Lessons Instructor in Trumpet for over 7 years and I also have 95% of a Music Education degree and am currently a Master's student in Composition and Conducting. I approach teaching each student individually, isolate any issues, address, practice, and repeat, ending with a globalization of the subject matter; relating it to Music as a whole and identifying ways to use the concept in other areas such as performance or composition.

Music History

I am currently a Master's student in Composition and Conducting. I approach teaching each student individually, identifying the broad understanding of the historical material, discuss it's importance, listen to examples, and give a quiz, ending with a globalization of the subject matter; relating it to Music as a whole and identifying ways to use the concept in other areas such as performance or composition.

Music Theory

I am a current Master's student in Composition and have several years of experience tutoring in music theory specifically in collegiate theory and AP theory for high schoolers. I implement theoretical knowledge into all areas of Music including performance and history.
