Music teaching

I teach music technology at NYU and Montclair State University. I also teach online courses with Soundfly: Unlocking the Emotional Power of Chords, The Creative Power of Advanced Harmony, and Theory for Producers. Finally, I design learning resources with the NYU Music Experience Design Lab.

I sometimes teach lessons to private students, mostly on a one-on-one basis, but sometimes in groups as well. If you’re not in New York City, I now offer lessons via Skype. Get in touch if you’d like me to teach you.
