My name is Connor Fogarty and I am offering private, online tutoring to anyone who is interested in improving their music theory and composition skills, from beginners to tertiary students.

If you want to write music for films, games, ensembles or choirs, if you are a songwriter looking for new ways to express yourself musically, or if you are a student looking to get through their theory classes and AMEB exams, I will cater to your needs and give you the guidance, tools and resources that you need to fulfil your goals.

The following are the topics that I can cover:

  • Composition (in multiple styles)
  • Film Music
  • Harmony
  • Counterpoint
  • Orchestration
  • Music Analysis and History

I also have experience arranging music, creating charts and lead sheets, and am fluent at using the music notation program, Sibelius.

I am a composer currently studying composition at the MPhil (Master of Philosophy) level at the Elder Conservatorium of Music. I hold a first-class honours degree from the Elder Conservatorium and a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Music) degree from the University of Southern Queensland, where I was also awarded with the Creative Arts faculty medal.

The following are two recent performances of my work:

  • Scherzo and Finale for String Quartet performed by the Australian String Quartet (2019)

  • Landscapes for Wind Orchestra (winner of the inaugural Adelaide Wind Orchestra Composers Competition and Workshop) performed by the Adelaide Wind Orchestra (2019)

Other projects include writing the score for the feature film, The Unquiet as well as a collaborative, multimedia work as part of the Empire Theatre’s Brief Encounters project and many others. For a full CV please get in touch!
