...I have also taken music theory classes for over 3 years, and my perfect pitch allows me to understand music on a deeper level. I have taught one student who was just beginning his musical career, teaching him basic scales, easy songs, and sight reading, and I am eager to teach students of all levels. I have been playing chess for 13 years, since I was 6 years old.
