I am a music theorist and I love teaching. I have trained musicians of all abilities for over 25 years. I can teach you to read music and I can help you pass college/AP music theory. Let me know how I can help.

I am finishing a PhD in music theory at the Eastman School of Music. I perform, conduct, teach, and study music. I have degrees from: Liszt Academy in Hungary, University of Virginia, Michigan State University, University of Central Florida. In addition to music, I worked at Disney World, lived in Hungary, and used to answer mail for President Clinton’s cat, Socks.

I have taught music theory, ear training, and sight-singing at Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester, and Michigan State University. I also taught AP music theory in a public high school. I studied intensive solfege at the Kodaly Institute of the Liszt Academy in Hungary.

I always want my music classes to be as enjoyable and invigorating as a first-rate music rehearsal. I won an annual teaching prize and because my class is so full of music-making, experimentation, and fun, the jury couldn't tell if it was a theory class or an ensemble rehearsal.

I love every moment that I get to explore music with students and peers. Experienced musicians, theory students, and complete beginners - Please, let me know if I can help you.

great teacher

My daughter looks forward to her music lessons. She is very patient and approachable. My daughter to lucky to learn music from such a knowledgeable teacher. thanks for everything.

Pavani, 4 lessons with Molly

Molly is a very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated tutor

Molly has helped my daughter so much with the concepts of AP Music Theory. My daughter was not understanding what she was learning in class before she started to get help from Molly. Now she is doing much better in class and her grades are proving that Molly’s tutoring is really turning things around for her. Molly is so patient and she is very knowledgeable about music theory. She is also very kind, humorous, and easy to learn from.

Knowledgeable and patient

My 11th grade daughter is in IB HL music. Molly is an engaging tutor, communicates well, and knows her subject. If my daughter does not understand a concept, Molly uses different teaching strategies until the concept is understood. We plan on continuing with Molly as she is a great fit.

5 stars!

Molly was really helpful and patient and explained things that I once found difficult really well. She even could demonstrate on the keyboard for better understanding though we were just doing online sessions
