I was definitely eager to sign up for another lesson. She was patient and encouraging, which are two qualities that I really believe a teacher/tutor/mentor should have. If you value experience over all then Dr S is definitely the tutor you should sign up for.
Me being a vocalist, I struggled with transpositions and fingerings of all the different brass and woodwind instruments that were on the exam. She also helped improve my conducting skills and ear training with chord progressions, as well as Music theory with modes. I would highly recommend her as a tutor to anyone that is in need of help or is struggling to pass this exam. She would even be helpful for tutoring in music theory as well as ear training.
My daughter has worked with John on numerous occasions. She needed additional help in ear training for her AP Music class. John helped her immediately by teaching her techniques and worked through examples, in a positive and encouraging manner. Now, since John, assignments that took hours before are mere minutes and my daughter has the confidence she needs to succeed.
