I teach undergraduate and graduate composition and analysis at the USC Thornton School of Music. I previously taught at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.
Check out the USC Composer datebook for lectures and concerts happening in our department.
I also offer PRIVATE LESSONS in composition outside of USC both in person and via Skype/FaceTime. My high school-aged students have been accepted to many top undergraduate programs including Harvard, Oberlin, USC, UCLA, and the New England Conservatory. My post-undergraduate students outside of USC have been accepted into Master’s and Doctoral programs including UC Berkeley, UT Austin, CalArts, and UC Irvine.
