I currently tutor a handful of students in London teaching composition, composition for film, and computer programs such as Logic Pro and Sibelius notation software. In 2013 I created an iPad band at the Cerebral Palsy Center of Westchester working with a number of students with a variety special needs. I feel confident teaching students of all ages and skill levels.
At first I assess a students skill level and identify what they'd like to achieve through the sessions. I then approach each student with a combination of structured coursework and projects as well as leaving flexibility for students to bring their own works and projects. I find this combination is both highly productive and maintains a student's interest.
