[Smt-talk] Teaching for free

I've been teaching composition and theory privately, for free or for pay  
depending on the student's circumstances, for the past 24 years.  This is  
done entirely in an informal, non-institutional way; I don't publicize  
this activity, but younger musicians seem to come to me in a steady stream  
based on some of my music they've heard, articles or blog items I've  
written, or personal recommendations.  This activity keeps me in touch  
with lively musical minds and has often been a source of compositional  
inspiration. In doing this work, I like to think I'm continuing a  
tradition of the same kind of private tuition I received from a few superb  
teachers, including Lou Harrison, Douglas Leedy and La Monte Young and the  
tuning theorist Erv Wilson, each of whom also benefit in their youth from  
their own private teachers.
