Featured New york Piano Teachers

Jonathan B L

Instruments:

Originally from Kansas City, I studied vocal performance, choral conducting and music education at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.  I have directed and music directed productions all over the United States, including the current Off-Broadway production of Honestly Abe.  I have performed a wide variety of leading roles in everything from opera and operetta, to musical comedy and straight drama. He has been a featured performer with such esteemed organizations as Music Theatre for Young People of Kansas City, The Kansas City Symphony, The Kansas City Lyric Opera, Indiana University Opera & Ballet Theatre, the 13th Street Repertory, La Muse Venale Acting Troupe, and the Bloomington Playwrights Project.  While at Indiana, he participated in a 4-month long Opera Workshop class led by Grammy-Award Winner Sylvia McNair.

Michael W

Instruments:

I am a jazz musician and composer at heart. The woodwinds (saxophone, flute, clarinet and ewi (Electronic Wind Instrument)) will always be my main performing instruments. Although my journey into composition and teaching has given me practical experience on many other instruments as well, so that I am a competent player and teacher for beginner and intermediate students on piano, guitar and electric bass. Sharing music with others, with an audience or with an eager student, is a magical and rewarding experience that I cherish. I’m happy to say that teaching and performing music has taken me all over the world.

Shoko N

Instruments:

Studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Completed studies in composition and arranging with teachers: Donny Nolan, Phil Wilson, Dan Moretti. Majored in piano performance with teachers: Joanne Brackeen, Kenny Werner and Lyle Mays.  Graduated and received Performance Major Diploma in Music. Studied at the YAMAHA Music Academy in Japan.

Ron C

Instruments:

Although most of my playing experience has been with rock bands, big bands and weddings, I have a B.A. in classical performance/music education from William Paterson University. Most of my private study has been with Dave Larson of the New Jersey Symphony and Dave Rogers, a William Paterson jazz adjunct. My classroom career began at the Passaic County Elks' Cerebral Palsy Center in Clifton, NJ, and in 2001 I moved to my present position as Elementary Music Teacher in Middlesex, NJ.  I love to play blues on my trumpet, but my latest passion is learning finger-picking on guitar. 

Robert K

Instruments:

Nothing makes me happier than having the opportunity to share my love of music and guitar. Upon graduating from Skidmore College in 2000, I was accepted to Florida State University to the classical guitar program under the study of Bruce Holzman. I feel my decision to simultaneously work towards two masters degrees speaks clearly for my motivation and passion towards music. While I focused on music theory/composition for my PhD studies at Louisiana State University, I continued performing newly composed works by graduate composers for the instrument.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out by learning to play on a keyboard or digital piano. The most reputable keyboards brands are Yamaha, Roland and Casio, and can be purchased from most good music instrument retailers. Students should look to buy a keyboard with 88 weighted keys, as this will most resemble the playability of a real piano. At a minimum, 61 keys will suffice for most songs and practice. Keyboards are portable and can be played with headphones, making them highly convenient for practice. That said, if it is within you means to buy an acoustic piano, it will provide the best learning experience.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a keyboard or piano to play on! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. Students vary in ability from beginner to advanced, and naturally have different lessons requirements for each stage of their development. Put broadly, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. Intermediates will start to take these concepts further, but learning different chords variations, such as diminished, augments, slash and 7th chords, as well as improving their speed and playing more complex compositions. Advanced students can develop playing skills such as glissando, improv and working with different piano modes, such as Dorian, Mixolydian and Aeolin. They may also like to study a specific genre - usually Jazz or Blues piano.
We offer piano lessons for students of all ages, including adults. Whether you are a complete beginner on the instrument, or you have not played the piano in many years, our knowledgable instructors can definitely assist you in your journey of developing your musical skills.
Due to the attention span of very young children, we advise that students begin their piano lessons no younger than age 4 or 5. Piano lessons are a great way to introduce an instrument for the first time to a younger child, as learning piano will teach them basic musicianship skills like rhythm and harmony, and how to read sheet music and chords.
