About Karl


Bio

I am a a classical composer and pianist with BA in music from Lewis and Clark College and an MM in music composition from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I studied composition and theory with David Conte, one of the last students of the legendary Nadia Boulanger, famed mentor to such greats as Aaron Copland, Philip Glass, and Elliot Carter. I offer all of my students the same rigor and seriousness that he received as a conservatory student. Whatever level of musician you happen to...

I am a a classical composer and pianist with BA in music from Lewis and Clark College and an MM in music composition from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I studied composition and theory with David Conte, one of the last students of the legendary Nadia Boulanger, famed mentor to such greats as Aaron Copland, Philip Glass, and Elliot Carter. I offer all of my students the same rigor and seriousness that he received as a conservatory student. Whatever level of musician you happen to be, I can help you get better.

I also have a very well rounded liberal arts education, having graduated from Lewis and Clark College. I offer tutoring in American History, World History, English, and Philosophy among other subjects.

In High School, I received a 5 on the AP United States History test, the highest possible score received by less than 10% of all test takers. I can help students of all levels improve their performance and grades in history class, and even help you ace that dreaded AP test.

I am an accomplished composer of works for orchestra, chamber music, voice, choirs and a whole host of other mediums. Just starting to try your hand at composition? I can help you take your first baby steps into the wading pool. So you want to write a fugue? Then go ahead and do it! I am a master contrapuntalist, having studied all of the species and techniques from the European American Musical Alliance at La Schola Cantorum in Paris.

It'll be hard work, but I can help get you there. Need help with music theory? Been there, done that--I can help you master the course. Can't tell your classical period from your baroque period? I'll get you through Music History. Is ear training and sight singing giving you hell? I survived advanced musicianship at a top ranked conservatory--I can help there as well.

I'm available to teach students all over the Portland area. Please feel free to contact me here at WyzAnt at any time. I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may happen to have about me or my tutoring. Very best regards!
