New York University undergraduate music theory and composition lessons in Toronto GTA

Methodology

I believe that the most effective classes are ones in which students are excited to participate and learn the material, so I always aim to relate class content to each student's individual interests. I am more than happy to teach Music Theory concepts through pop, rock, musical theatre, or other contemporary styles of music if it engages students and makes them eager to learn more! Through my years of teaching, seeing students reach an "a-ha moment" has been one of the most rewarding parts of the teaching process and I hope to continue to foster this kind of supportive, encouraging environment! I am available to teach elementary/high school and RCM Theory/Harmony.

Background

I'm a composer and songwriter, originally from Toronto, studying Music Theory and Composition at NYU and freelancing in and around New York City where I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from some of the world's coolest, craziest musicians. I have been studying music (theory, composition, and piano/guitar performance) for over 10 years, and teaching private music lessons since 2012.
