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.

Ballet

With 13 years of background I am a very qualified teacher. This includes Pointe classes and beginning ballet. I danced as an apprentice for 2 years until a devastating injury, I have continued to teach for the past 3 years.

Ballroom Dancing

With 4 years of background in all styles, from waltz to salsa even swing dance I love it all. I have taken and taught classes at Arthur Murray.

Composition (Music)

I've completed college coursework in composition, and have professional experience. I have composed music used by choirs, orchestras and bands. It is important to teach the art of proper notation in composition.

Ear Training

I am a trained musician who has practiced and perfected the art of ear recognition. This practice helps students feel what is coming next in their piece of music as well as identify notes that do and do not belong. I have studied ear training, and its benefits for nine years and continue to use it daily.

General Music

As a musician that has played for many establishments on multiple different instruments, I am qualified to teach a general music education. This practice comes from playing in all types of music. And even conducting groups from classical to jazz.

Guitar

As a professional guitarist I have played all styles for many years. I have taught all levels guitar for three years. I have played it professionally in many settings.

Piano

I have played piano for nearly 9 years, classical Blues jazz and pop are my favorites. I know all scales and their relativity to all music involved. I have taught piano including scales general theory and sight reading for nearly 3 years.

Sight Singing

Sight singing is a crucial part of vocal education. With ten years of formal education sight singing is crucial for any vocal auditions. This includes all types of music, method book and the use of solfege when singing.

My experience includes traveling through Europe singing the part of Carmen in the opera Carmen, and performing solo gigs around the city. This also includes experience singing and teach vocal groups like choirs and accapella groups.
