I am an experienced instrumental music teacher. I have a B.A. and an M.A. in Music Education from the Manhattan School of Music. I have worked as a professional musician and have been teaching music for many years. I played and worked in Tehran, Iran early in my career. I use the software "Finale" to create music for various uses. At my lessons I accompany my students on the piano. I have the ability to teach flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone and drums. I believe that playing music is a joy.
After graduating from college I joined the Peace Corps. I spent 2 years in Tehran, Iran playing in the Tehran Symphony Orchestra. I returned to the U.S. and went back to school to get my Masters degree. I worked as a music teacher in the Bronx, N.Y. for several years. After that I worked at an electronic music studio in Hawthorne, N.Y. The studio eventually shut down and I began teaching Band at the Stamford Public Schools where I taught music at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
I have created my own method of teaching which I have perfected over the years. I create my own exercises and practice materials based on the level and interests of each individual student. I use the software program "Finale" in order to create the musical compositions that I prepare for my students. I always accompany my students on the piano. I am well versed in the various styles of music and am comfortable teaching students how to improvise also.
I have a tremendous love of music. Music has greatly enhanced my life. I try to share this love of music with my students. I have a love of teaching. I try to share my musical knowledge with my students. I attempt to find the way to inspire students to find their way to pursue their musical studies.
I like working with Phil. He is very experienced and knowledgeable and patient. He brings a keyboard to each session to accompany me and I think that is above and beyond what I'd expect from most teachers.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
