Learn to Understand and Compose any Style of Music with every Instrument

Methodology

I like to teach experience based, and learning by doing. To learn to compose for an instrument in a particular style, me and my student will choose representative music where we can find examples and then try through imitation and analysis to create our own personal version.

Experience

I have been giving lessons for 5 years as a tutor and substitute teacher, which gave me the chance to work with a variety of different ages, backgrounds and in a variety of musical topics/instruments. My students are now Berklee College of Music graduates, or music conservatry graduates (diploma).
