Bio

While the pace in which I teach a student varies from person to person, my approach generally is the same. The most effective way students learn is through "discovering" the answer themselves and gaining a complete understanding of the concept. When a student initially begins finding the correct answer to something, I challenge them to explain their process so that there isn't one or more misunderstood step that happened to lead them to the solution.

While the pace in which I teach a student varies from person to person, my approach generally is the same. The most effective way students learn is through "discovering" the answer themselves and gaining a complete understanding of the concept. When a student initially begins finding the correct answer to something, I challenge them to explain their process so that there isn't one or more misunderstood step that happened to lead them to the solution. If they are incorrect, I go back with the student through the process to help them best understand what went wrong. Most importantly, I allow the student to, in a sense, teach me. Being able to explain it thoroughly and clearly to me helps them to understand the material and make it their own and not simply repeating what I said to them.

Subjects

Composition (Music)

Composition (Music)

I can teach the fundamentals of writing music on a multitude of instruments. Though primarily classically oriented, many of my students focused on genres outside of mainstream classical. Concepts taught include (but not limited to): melody and harmony construction, orchestration, counterpoint, accompaniment styles, and analysis of pertinent songs and works to aid in writing in a desired style.
