Jamie is a teacher, guitarist, singer/songwriter, saxophonist, and composing pianist.  His teaching career began at the age of fourteen, as a volunteer in the Songcatchers, Inc. program, teaching saxophone and piano to underprivileged children in New Rochelle, NY.  While completing his undergraduate education, Jamie continued to participate in Wind Symphony and Spacecataz, his own rock band, while teaching privately in Rochester, NY and Westchester County, NY.  In 2007 he completed an eight month internship in Artist Media and Marketing at Island Def Jam Music Group/Universal in Manhattan.  During the second half of his senior year at Rochester, he single handedly designed, produced, and taught the General Music Program for K-10 at Cornerstone Academy in Brockport, NY.  Following this, he completed an independent study on the modern music industry, and was awarded the first ever Bachelor of Arts Degree in Popular Music and Jazz from the University of Rochester, and its sister conservatory, the Eastman School of Music. In the last several years, Jamie has built a formidable private studio of students on guitar, saxophone, piano, trumpet, clarinet, composition, theory, and performance.  Jamie has produced and hosted a plethora of student recitals, and begun his Master of Arts Degree in Music Education at Hunter College, inclusive of the AVID tutoring program and Teacher Education Program.  His musical influences are varied, and include Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Mahler, Brahms, Reich, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Hank Mobley, Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bob Dylan, The Cars, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Tool, R.E.M., The Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, The Police, Say Anything, Journey, Rush, Jimmy Eat World, Motion City Soundtrack, Billy Joel, Goo Goo Dolls, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Alanis Morissette, John Mayer, Stone Temple Pilots, and many more.

Glafkos K

Instruments:

Music is truly a wonderful thing in our world and it truly enhances our lives in many different ways. I believe that everyone can benefit deeply from it one way on another. In my teaching, I tailor the lessons according to each student's unique sensitivities and musical intuitions, always striving towards a balance between discipline and creativity. I always enjoy sharing my love and enthusiasm for music with others and I strongly feel that learning music at any level should be a fun, creative and enjoyable process.

Quinn M

Instruments:

Hi!  I am a voice and piano teacher.  I am originally from CA and moved to NY to complete my degree in music education at Hofstra University.  After I graduated, I stayed to complete my masters degree at Teachers College, Columbia University.  My primary instrument is voice, secondary piano.  I sing with the Astoria Symphonic Choir and occasionally perform new music.

Stan K

Instruments:

Originally from Texas, Stan began his music education at an early age, studying piano with his father who was a professional jazz pianist.  As a child his musical interests were greatly diverse, but he fell in love with jazz saxophone in high school.  At age sixteen he began to play professionally and these early musical experiences led him to a career in music.  He enrolled in Texas State University in San Marcos Texas and earned a B.A in Music Performance in 2001 studying saxophone with Dr. John Mills, a highly successful studio woodwind player, and piano with James Polk, former musical director for The Ray Charles Orchestra.  It was during this time that Stan started giving private lessons at his former high school in New Braunfels, Texas.  He moved to Austin and began private teaching at two high schools, Westlake and Round Rock and had many successful students.  He also began to teach adults at this time whom he often met at his performances. In 2006, he moved to Baltimore and taught flute at Cockeysville Middle school as well as clarinet and saxophone for a company called Music and Arts.  Also at this time, he was appointed as the full time music instructor at The Art and Drama Therapy Institute in Washington D.C., a private school for adults with developmental disabilities.  This experience greatly expanded his understanding of how to better connect with students and to convey more than just the musical notation on the page to his students. In 2008, as his performance career accelerated, he moved to New York.  While recording two albums for Sunnyside Records and touring the globe, he joined Musika and has taught extensively for them adults and children, saxophone, piano, clarinet and flute.

Matthew R

Instruments:

I started playing when I was 7 and just really haven't stopped. I have always enjoyed playing the piano and also teaching the piano. As a performer I have played in a wide variety of styles and ensembles from giving Solo Recitals to Rock Bands, and playing in Big Bands to Musical Theater Orchestras. After earning my Masters degree in Piano Performance I taught for several years and then began to perform on Cruise ships as the MD of the show band for the next 6.5 years. I enjoy all kinds of music, and I also enjoy teaching others how to play the piano and to understand music at a deeper level. As a teacher, I have taught all ages and also all levels, and always enjoy the opportunity to work with someone to begin or continue their musical journey.

More Information About Piano Lessons

For students just starting out, a keyboard or digital piano is a great entry level alternative to a real acoustic piano. We suggest trying to buy a keyboard with 88 keys. Keyboards with a weighted hammer action are recommended as their touch response and general feel will be most similar to that of an acoustic piano. If it is at all possible, consider buying an acoustic piano - upright pianos are less space consuming - as this will provide students with a greater level of satisfaction during their practice time. Popular keyboard brands include Yamaha, Casio and Roland.
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
Piano lessons are usually structured around a series of method books which are recommended by the teacher, and can be purchased at a local music store or online. Lessons for a beginner usually start with learning the notes of the piano, and progress to learning how to sight read using songs the student is familiar with. As the lessons progress, more focus is placed upon proper technique, fingering, and posture, and basic music theory is also introduced. Whatever direction a students goes in with their teacher, the instructor will work to make lessons fun and enjoyable!
In many ways adult learns have an advantage over young students. Adults have better self-discipline with regards to practice, a more patient and have higher levels of concentration. This allows them to develop the basic skills at a reasonably quick rate. Learning the piano is also a great way of remaining mental active during adulthood, and helps students to improve their hand-eye co-ordination and develop a critical ear. Learning to play the piano in adulthood can be beneficial health-wise, is a great way of harnessing creativity and stimulating the brain as can be immensely satisfying when achieving set goals.
Piano lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
