As a High School and Middle School Band Director for 32 years I have taught MUSIC HISTORY. Most of my Masters work was in the area of music history. I studied music in antiquity, Renaissance, Baroque, Medieval, Classical, Romantic and 20th Century music periods. I am qualified to teach study and analysis of all periods of musical composition. I also have a broad knowledge of world music.
