Tutor : Dr. Ramin Haghjoo B.M. Piano, M.A.,Ph.D. Music Theory
 
Piano

Dr. Haghjoo was born and raised in California. At the University of California he received a B.M. in Piano, an M.A. in Music Theory, and a Ph.D. in Music Theory, all of which were funded by a full scholarship and full fellowships. Before moving to Galway in September 2012, he was based in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he worked as a professional pianist, organist, choir director, and music director. While a doctoral student, he taught Music Appreciation, Music Theory, and Musicianship at the university. He has also worked as a piano, organ, and music theory teacher privately, and as a piano teacher for the Yamaha Music School. In his role as a church music director, he has composed and arranged various choral and instrumental works.

Dr. Haghjoo's dissertation, "Aesthetic Experience: An Integral Theory of Music," creates a multi-leveled theory of aesthetic experience and explores its applications in relation to the works of Claude Debussy. As a performer and teacher, he deeply believes in the transformative powers of aesthetic experience through music, which deepens our understanding of and engagement with the world, expands our consciousness, and makes our souls manifest. He is delighted to be able to serve the Galway community.
