About Daniel

Hello, my name is Daniel and I tutor in music and math. I have a BM from Lawrence University in saxophone performance with an emphasis in Jazz Studies and a minor in math. Currently I am studying at Portland State University for a MM in Jazz Studies. I have performed with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and won several local competitions. I traveled to Strasbourg, France to attend and perform in the World Saxophone Congress an improvisation on a silent film.

I have perfect pitch and can help with any music theory related topic including ear training and sight singing. In college I tutored several students in jazz theory and ear training and it is always a joy to watch students grow, especially as it improved their improvisation skills. I can give lessons to any level on Saxophone, and beginning lessons on clarinet, flute or piano. I can also give improvisation lessons on any instrument.

Math is an easier topic than you may think. It doesn't require mindless memorization but clear understanding of fundamentals. Whatever branch of math you may be learning I will get to the root cause of any problems you may be facing.

I have perfect pitch and very acute relative pitch. I can help analyze scores and recordings, and help transcribe and music you may want to play. I can give jazz or classical lessons on saxophone.

I listen to every students individual needs, and can accommodate to any level. I'm passionate about the subjects I teach and hope you are as well :)

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 studied music theory, ear training, and sight singing at Lawrence University, and have acquired learned perfect pitch. As a jazz musician I use my ear in improvisation to explore sounds of jazz modalities. I focus on the importance of listening and the use of solfege to guide the ear.

Saxophone

I have a degree in Saxophone Performance from Lawrence University as well as a jazz emphasis. I have played repertoire such as the Albright sonata and the Muczynski concerto and sonata. I have performed "Escapades" with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as a sophmore in high school. Currently I am studying Jazz performance at PSU.
