Pitch & Sound

Contrary to what some believe, I believe "perfect pitch" is a skill that can be taught. And while having perfect pitch is a gift some are born with, training your ear is absolutely possible! The key is repetition of the sound. Such as, repeating a major/minor sound until one can recognize the differences between the two in a simple sound (such as a musical door-bell).  I incorporate creative and fun ways of training the ear, such as extensive interval training using the passage way between your voice and your ear, and improvising in a song that we will jam on together. This way students can explore the different pitches in a particular key, then learn to transpose the key using the theory practices in congruence with the ear training.

I believe in the power of teaching. And when learning an instrument, private lessons are, in my opinion, the best way to learn! This allows the student to explore more of the language by asking as many questions as they want. And because every student learns at a different pace and progresses at a different speed, private lessons allow proper instruction that are essentially tailor made for each student.

Education in music is most sovereign because more than anything else rhythm and harmony find their way to the innermost soul and take strongest hold upon it.
