About Kris

I am a composer who recently got my master's degree from the University of Louisville. I got my undergrad degree at the University of North Texas. While my main area of expertise is composition, anyone with a master’s degree in music is going to be generally well-versed in a variety of musical topics. As such, I can also offer lessons in theory, conducting, music fundamentals, notational software (both Finale and Sibelius), music technology, and a variety of other topics. These can be mixed and matched however the student wishes.

As far as my pedagogical approach is concerned, my lessons will be tailored towards each student. I generally look towards where the student is currently at musically, where he or she wants to go, possibly if there are any deficiencies I notice, and in general what the student’s stated goals are, if any. I may assign listening or score study assignments (particularly for a composition student) if I feel that will help in the student's development.

I am qualified to teach music composition, music theory, fundamentals, orchestration, counterpoint, beginning conducting, music technology, and music industry.

Interested in taking lessons from me? I'm eager to hear from you! Lessons can be weekly, bi-weekly, or in general however the student wishes to set them up. Payment can be on a per-lesson basis, or for a set of lessons (i.e a month’s worth for once a week, etc.) Scheduling is flexible.
