"Patient and insightful music theory and composition tutor with years of experience working with children and adults alike.

After graduating from Eastman School of Music with a Bachelors in Music Theory, I moved to New York City to pursue my Masters in Composition and Theory at New York University. While there, I taught courses in ear-training, sight-singing and Elements of Music to undergrads.

I also composed the music and lyrics to several musicals that played around the city, as well as music directing and conducting various productions. I am an accomplished pianist and composer who has won various awards in music composition (NYMF, ASCAP awards) as well as in lyric writing (Holof and ASCAP.) www.johnmercurio.com

I have a Bachelor's in Theory from the Eastman School of Music as well as a Masters in Music Composition/Theory from NYU and more importantly, I have been in the trenches, teaching and writing music myself for over twenty years. My songs have won awards through the Jonathan Larson Foundation, the Gilman-Gonzalez Musical Theatre Foundation, the Cole Porter award (through ASCAP) for music and lyrics and the New York Musical Theatre Foundation among others.

I love teaching music, talking about music, encouraging students to explore and find their own voice." less...
