If you are reading this I assume that you are about to embark into a wonderful journey into the world of music! Having the ability to perform is one of the greatest gifts one could have! My name is Adam and I would love to take this opportunity to tell you about myself. I currently teach private students of all ages and levels in New Jersey and Staten Island in their homes and in my Studio. I am open minded to all sorts of styles and I teach with an easy going and understanding style as my students work at their own pace. Aside from my teaching I am also an active opera performer. I have performed for 5 consecutive seasons at the Metropolitan Opera, where I had the honor of being a soloist in a variety of roles with the company. Many of these performances were on PBS Television, WQXR radia and also on the "'Live in HD Series," which were broadcasted live into movie theaters all over the world. Many of my performances have been along side with great performers such as Placido Domingo, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Dolora Zajick, Marcello Giordani, Ramon Vargas, Deborah Voigt, Nathan Gunn, and many others. where the conductors have included James Levine, Fabio Luisi, Nicola Luisotti, and others. Aside from the Metropolitan Opera, I have performed in many other companies around the world, and would be happy to tell you about these great experiences.
I am a NJ certified music teacher and have worked as an elementary and middle school music teacher for New Jersey Public Schools for over 8 years. In these positions I have taught general music piano class voice class choir drama music theory music history and even hand-bells. I have also had private piano and voice students for over 15 years.
My students have goals ranging from being able to enjoy making music to making this part of their profession and it is my goal to help them accomplish theirs. I refuse to teach all students the same way, as I often find students with different strengths and needs. I also want to let your passion be your fuel towards reaching your goals, so I am very open minded to the style that you want to work on, and with my knowledge of the different method books, we will find what works best for you.
I am an easy going, happy person, who enjoys working with students no matter what their goals are. Some people want to perform for fun, and others want to make this a career. Either way, I make it my goal to help you enjoy what you do while you gain the knowledge to bring your performing to a higher, more inspiring level.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
