Online or in person tutoring for Music Theory, Music History, Writing and Arranging

Methodology

Hi! My name is David. I offer assistance with graduate and undergraduate level coursework for various music topics. The courses I tutor include popular and traditional styles including Jazz. My teaching style focuses on assessment, and feedback.


Background

My tutoring is determined by the goals of the learner. Your first lesson is free. When the consultation is given, a needs assessment is developed. Online instruction continues a cycle of feedback and assessment through synchronous and asynchronous activities. Face to Face tutoring is optional.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $65/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $560
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $560

Details

Learners may take Face to Face (F2F) or Online lessons. If you are interested in F2F lessons, we can meet in Howard County public libraries. Locations in DC and Baltimore may also be considered.
