My Expert Service
I tutor college music courses, including history, appreciation, theory, ear training, singing, and playing an instrument. Together we will exceed your goals by getting you quickly back in the game when you hit the wall.
I tutor so that it makes sense, breaking it down to basics and painting word pictures, so you can wrap your brain around it. I can help you have music make sense to you, so you can develop a feel for where a piece of music is going.
