Graduate Student pursuing Masters in Orchestral Conducting offering virtual tutoring in all areas of classical music.

Methodology

A teacher, especially one providing private lessons, can have a profound effect on the student. As a student for many years, I understand the benefits of a positive relationship with a teacher. I also understand the profoundly negative effects of a negative relationship with a teacher. Experiencing both sides of the spectrum as a student has contributed to my approach as a teacher. I would argue that it is more important to know what NOT to do as a teacher as we risk alienating students.

Background

Graduate student in Northern Arizona on a gap year due to the pandemic pursuing a MM in Orchestral Conducting. At the age of six, I was started on piano at the decision of my parents. At the time I could not have been more unhappy with the decision, spending the next ten years dreading each and every lesson. At the age of 16 and on a lark, I decided to go a different direction after discovering the flute. I quickly discovered a natural affinity for the instrument, appreciating the social aspect the flute brought via chamber music and orchestra. It is from this point forward that I fell in love with music, especially the orchestra, and even the piano! Growing up in NYC, I attended a "Saturday Program" in highschool at the Mannes School of music, one of the three conservatories located in NYC. I began learning music theory, ear training, composition, orchestration and many other components that are essential to becoming a competent, well-rounded musician and teacher. Providing piano lessons to younger kids in my building introduced me to another vital facet of musicianship: teaching. The rest is history!
