Studying music is a lifelong pursuit and one of the best ways to learn is under the guidance of an interested teacher. I have helped students from all backgrounds develop their composition skills, knowledge of music theory and overall musicianship.
I begin by assessing the students current levels and develop a lesson plan according to their individual interests and needs.
Lessons are $75/hour and can be conducted over Skype or Gmail Video Chat.
