Learn piano, voice, music theory, and more from an with experience teaching preschool to graduate school!

Methodology

I am accepting students ages 12 and up in any subject listed in my background. I teach online and in the DC metro area.

As a teacher, my job is to help you reach your goals--student progress is more important than sticking with any particular method. I love learning what music my students like and incorporating it into their education--past examples include writing pop song arrangements and learning video game music on piano.

I believe that students learn best when they enjoy their education and take ownership of the process. I also believe experiencing a wide variety of musical styles, cultures, and eras will strengthen your musicianship regardless of your intended style.

Past teaching methodologies include:

-harmonic (Roman numeral) and formal analysis (i.e. what you need to pass the Music Theory AP)
-Movable do, fixed do, and scale degree-based sight singing
-Classical piano and voice instruction
-Jazz piano instruction

Background

I have worked in music education as a classroom teacher, private teacher, and teaching assistant since 2011. I earned a Master's degree in Music Education from Indiana University and a Bachelor's degree in Music (Composition) from DePauw University.

I have taught or tutored:
-Music Theory
-Public K-12 Choir, Piano, Percussion, General Music
-Arranging (Orchestration)
-Private students of all ages in voice and piano
