Reviewing mathematical foundations -- explore the poetry of proofs with a mathemusician!

Methodology

Almost every aspect of science, art, and the humanities, involves an understanding of mathematical and logical foundations. It is essential for any student communicating in any form of language to be aware of the power of logic and reasoning. A study in logic not only helps one to compose clear arguments in languages such as mathematics and music, but also helps us to make conscious choices of whether or not to ascribe to certain axioms in any given context.

Having triple majored in Mathematics, Music Composition, and Philosophy as an undergraduate, I have been working professionally as a musician/composer for dancers, performing as a puppeteer, and conducting independent research in linguistic foundations, teaching mathematics, logic, and its relation to art.

Background

I have been teaching for almost 2.5 years. I have had classes of 15-20 students teaching music composition and technology. I have also had classes of 35 students teaching philosophy, namely topics in ethics and free will, at the high school level. I have also had numerous one-on-one tutoring sessions in Logic, serving as a teaching assistant and grader to Logic professors at the college level.
