About Scott

Hello!

I have been teaching piano lessons in the Dallas/Flower Mound/Richardson area for the last 15 years. I teach lessons in Dallas in my home or you may request that I come to your home and teach in your home. I teach all ages and levels- beginners through advanced. I also teach adults and home-schoolers. I teach basic music fundamentals, note-reading and general music reading. I believe the books I use are superior and that they have the most interesting musical pieces of any of the method books on the market.

I have two annual recitals, one in the spring which typically includes some jazz and pop music. The December recital includes a Christmas piece if parents and students want that. I also have students participate in two festivals a year sponsored by the Plano Music Teachers Association. I am a member. I also involve students in the state theory test.

I like music, people, and teaching very much and I look forward to meeting you! I also have a website which I can direct you to upon request.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Ear Training

I have a Masters degree in music theory from the University of Maryland. I got A's in all of my undergraduate aural skills ear-training classes. I also got A's in graduate ear-training classes at the University of North Texas. I have taught undergraduate 1st & 2nd semester ear-training/aural skills courses at the University level. Ear-training is a good way to understand what you are playing. I include it in teaching my piano lessons. I think it's a lot of fun & my students enjoy it.

Music History

I have taught music appreciation. Music appreciation is very similar to music history. It can be a survey of stylistic musical attributes of music in the 4 (or 5) music periods, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, 20th Century. Frequently, a music App. course or a music history course will have some listening to music. Students listen to music & identify what makes that music sound like it belongs to one music period or another. I taught a music appreciation course at a North Texas Community college for a semester. I have a Bachelors degree in music.

Music Theory

I have a Bachelors degree in music w/ a piano concentration & a Master's degree in music theory. I have taught theory for many years, including the beginning levels (including fundamentals) through advanced.

Piano

I have been a piano teacher in the North Dallas area for 15 years. I teach beginning through advanced students & I also teach adults. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in music w/ a piano concentration from the University of Maryland. I maintain a nurturing approach to teaching. My goal is to help students learn to play piano & to always help them play better. I also have a Masters degree in music theory & I include some theory in my lessons. I have two recitals every year & I enter students in the Plano Music Teachers Association fall festival & sonatina festival & in the state theory test. I like teaching, people & music very much. I teach in my apartment & I also travel to students homes & teach in the home. My resume is available upon request. I look forward to hearing from you!

Sight Singing

I have a Bachelors degree in music & a Masters degree in Music theory. In my undergraduate career I took courses in sight-singing & ear-training. I taught undergraduate freshman & sophomore music theory in the core curriculum in music theory at the University of North Texas for 3 years as a graduate teaching fellow (this included all aspects of theory, including sight-singing). I have experience in teaching both the "minor-la" system of sight-singing & the movable do method. I am comfortable with either one, although I prefer minor-la.
