I have a PhD in Composition and Theory from Princeton. I teach students from beginners to advanced level. My goal is to encourage creativity at all levels. In particular, a priority is to help each student find his or her own voice. Lessons are conducted with three principal goals in mind: to provide instruction in all technical areas of the craft of composition; to awaken the student's ears to new worlds of sound; and to offer constructive criticism of the student's creative work.
Composition lessons now available by Zoom.
