About Elliot

A bit about myself, I am currently a student at Gettysburg College: Sunderman Conservatory studying to get my degree in Music Education. I am currently studying piano performance under dedicated teacher and virtuosic pianist Dr. Jocelyn Swigger, music education under published Dr. Brent Talbot, and music composition under internationally performed Dr. Avner Dorman. I have been playing piano for about 11 years. I began under jazz pianist and local teacher Tom Glovier, moved to classical veteran Dana Scott, and finally with Carnegie Mellon piano professor Carla LaRocca.

I am very passionate about music in general in addition to the art of piano performance. I see music as a mode of self-expression and a language through which we can communicate emotions we otherwise could not verbally. I always enjoy seeing the music click with the student, which Dr. Swigger cleverly calls “Aha moments,” and this is something I seek with all of my students. It is my mission to see that everyone has an opportunity to this art form.

I can teach piano performance, general composition, songwriting, basic to advanced music theory.

My lessons are about having a good time, because I believe that people work best while enjoying the activity. I try to engage the student and make sure he/she is involved and active, and one of my strengths is building a solid relationship with my student.

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.

Piano

I have been playing piano for eleven years and am one of the top pianists at Gettysburg College's Sunderman Conservatory. I am also a music education major at the college, so I have a teaching background and many engaging strategies on how to best deliver the art of piano performance. I believe in the success of any student and am dedicated to see my students reach a high level of musicianship and enjoyment.

Songwriting

I am currently taking music theory at Gettysburg College's Sunderman Conservatory, studying music composition and music theory under international composer Avner Dorman. I specialize in classical composition, but I am very tenacious in working in many other genres, especially modern where most students nowadays seem to be interested. I believe in music as an expression of the self, and I encourage my music students to see it as such and to write music they enjoy and feel fulfilled with.
