Instruments: Piano, Voice, Organ, Synthesizer
Teaching Methods: I typically use the Alfred books for young beginning students. In these books, children learn the geography of the keyboard and learn about the contours of musical notation and by the end are using both hands. For adults, as well as intermediate children and up, I prefer the Michael Aaron series for intermediate and beyond. For beginning adults I use the Aaron Musical Primer. I also use the Aaron Technic for advanced performers.
Teaching Styles: The way I teach is the way I was taught, using methods that were in place when I was a kid, some of these techniques date back to the 1800's. I believe in teaching scales, and also the Carl Czerny exercises and etudes, pieces that are designed to get beginners up to the advanced level.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Bass Guitar
I want you to love what you do. Maybe you want to be able to play for your own version of music therapy. Maybe you want to prepare for a college audition. Maybe you want to understand how to take the fundamentals of music and turn it into Jazz or Rock improvisation. Whatever it is you're looking to accomplish it's my goal, and, indeed, the goal of any solid teacher, to get you there. I want to find the "Key Song" that will unlock a drive in you to continue. The rewards of having music at your fingertips are endless.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba
Teaching Methods: I like to begin earlier students with a strong foundation of musicianship by connecting core musical concepts to the music that they are exposed to every day. For older students and adults, I will align my teaching to their needs and strive to make every lesson worthwhile and meaningful for their musical development. My lesson materials vary on the specific needs of the student. I strongly believe that listening is a huge component to developing musicianship, so I will often assign listening assignments to students to strengthen their ear.
Teaching Styles: My goal as a music instructor is to support my students and their creativity in such a way that allows for true expression of emotion through music. I want to set earlier students up for success in their school music programs. I try to create a learning environment that gives students the motivation to set weekly goals for each lesson and practice session.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Viola
I started teaching in 1998 as an undergraduate student. I immediately became impassioned with striving to provide my students with the best of me. Since then I have taught at many levels, from three-year-old and adult beginners to advanced students of all ages. I became a Suzuki Method certified violin teacher in 2004 upon completion of my Masters Degree in Music. While doing my training, I was able to apply what I learned right away as I was already emplyeed as a music teacher in two different programs in New York City. At the same time, I continued to teach elementary piano and voice, to both children and adults. Nowadays I teach groups as a teaching artist in schools in New York City while still keeeping my studio.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin
Teaching Methods: I typically teach basic sight reading and scales in the very beginning. But music is more than just notes on a page. I teach students to find their own voice on their instrument. THAT IS IMPORTANT. I have no desire to create clones of myself :) I want to give students the tools they need, so they can find who 'they are' musically. We're all different and have different gifts. My job is to discover their gifts, nurture them and support them so that one day they may stand up and show the world the creative individual that lives inside.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style involves sight reading, chord charts and improvization

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
