About Jared

Hey! I'm a graduate student at Baylor, having completed my Bachelors degree at Furman University. My wife and I moved here in August for me to begin my graduate work. She is a graphic designer and I teach the drum line at Baylor.

I am studying music and my undergraduate degree was in music education. I am certified to teach general education and grade 5-12 music. I am an avid reader, I am passionate about education, and I love kids. Please feel free to reach out!

I love reading and the English language. My favorite writers include C.S. Lewis and John Grisham, and I also like things about life and leadership by people like John Wooden, Mike Krzyzewski, Art Briles, or John Piper.

I'm happy to help you wherever you're at. I love helping people learn, so please feel free to reach out!

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.

Composition (Music)

Over the course of my undergraduate and graduate career, I have studied theory, composing, arranging both as part of my coursework as well as privately with nationally-acclaimed composer and arranger Jay Bocook and Baylor University Director of Jazz Studies Alex Parker. I have had my music performed by various jazz and rock groups and percussion ensembles. I am currently one of the music arrangers for the Baylor University Drum Line.

Drums

I am currently pursuing a graduate degree in percussion performance at Baylor University, where I am the principal drum set player for the Baylor Jazz Ensemble. I have played drum set with numerous collegiate jazz bands, jazz combos, and percussion ensembles.

Ear Training

Leading into both my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I tested out of the initial ear-training and aural skills courses.

General Music

I have an undergraduate degree in music education and I am currently pursuing a masters degree in music performance. I am a percussionist, but as part of my undergraduate degree I was required to achieve proficiency on brass, woodwind, and string instruments. I also play guitar, bass, and some piano. I am proficient in music theory, music history, and I am actively involved in music education research.
