NEW YORK/NEW JERSEY
Music Classes for Children 4-18 (NY)
For the kids ages 4-9 in groups, I do fun interactive music games and introduce them to the basics of playing music, reading music, active listening, and musicianship skills. I also teach basic music theory to children this age privately (which can be especially helpful for children studying private piano, violin, etc).
For the kids ages 10+, I teach private voice lessons and private musicianship lessons (sight-singing, dictation, theory and analysis). I help high school students prepare for their AP Music Theory Exams and I can help younger kids prepare for All-State examination. All of my teaching can be customized for students interested in either jazz/ popular styles or classical style. I can teach a children’s classical choir for ages 10+ as well.
I usually teach for $50/ hour, but I could do a Becky-Rodskog’s-friend’s-kids special for $40/ hour.
