Teaching Info

All lessons are tailored to the needs of the student while also trying to find new areas of interest so that students engage in a wide variety of musical knowledge that feeds their creative appetite.

Composition lessons begin with a brief overlook of music history and styles before moving onto learning about how to write for each musical instrument. The lessons also focus on writing small ensemble compositions and working up to writing for orchestra.
