She must be you teacher!

Cassandra is an incredibly good teacher and performer. She is very patient, which is a great quality when you just start leaning to play the piano (I am sure her ears must suffer). She has a good sense of humor and is very open minded, which helps create a relaxing environment. And yet, she also manages to push you and progress. I can only recommend her.

A musical journey

Cassandra has a seemingly endless reserve of patience that allows her to build each lesson as a musical journey. She has guided me to concentrate on my relaxation, sightreading, proper form, and musical interpretation. It has been my pleasure to explore music with her.

My daughter took lessons with Viva in Chicago and she was absolutely the best piano / music teacher. My daughter began piano with another teacher and did not enjoy playing piano so we decided to look around for another teacher in hopes of finding someone who can inspire her. A good friend recommended Viva so we decided to try some lessons. My daughter came out of her first lesson excited and confident. Ever since, she was excited to go to lessons every week and practiced daily without me asking her to. Her growth was fast and weekly visible. Most importantly, her love for music transformed. My daughter also participated in multiple talent shows and piano recitals, some arranged by Viva, others she volunteered to play in. It's so unfortunate and sad that Viva had to transfer cities. It was a hard shift for my daughter to start again with another teacher, as she still misses Viva.
My family gives Viva the highest recommendations.
Brian T. Brooklyn, NY

Piano lessons are available to everyone in all styles including classical, rock, popular, and jazz -- the goal is for everyone to have a great time while enriching your musical knowledge and fluency! It is a language, after all. Below is a breakdown of a typical lesson for each general skill level.

Beginners:
You will be able to play at least three or four songs using both hands after your first lesson! We start with note names and rhythm, move on to intervals and reading on the grand staff, and then continue on to playing easy versions of your favorite music. (Don't worry if these words are all foreign to you, they won't be soon enough!) Once we are in the swing of things, we will start with a few warm ups, some rhythmic sight reading (clap and count), then work through a new aspect of playing with many examples and songs. Then, we will improve on whichever "solo" piece you are learning at the time, and play through a couple other pieces in your always-growing ...

Brian is an excellent piano teacher for our young son. He is patient and caring. He's very knowledgeable, is willing to work with the student (and parents), and incorporates requests into the lessons, such as a particular song. Moreover, Brian adapts his teaching to keep pace with a child's attention span, and Brian explains concepts to children in terms that they can understand.

Our son has learned how to read sheet music and play through Brian.

We recommend Brian.

I have been taking classes with Gity for the last half a year and have been extremely happy with my progress. Actually this is the very first time when I don'€™t have to push myself into taking classes but actually looking forward to taking a class. I like the fact that Gity develops customized teaching technique and adjusts to my learning pace and my travel schedule! At the same time she has very structural approach and a great combination of piano practice classes, music theory and music history. This combination gives me a much deeper understanding of what I study, how I should approach each music piece and makes the whole experience so much more interesting! Gity is very patient and very positive, I feel extremely comfortable taking classes with her and would strongly recommend her to any student of any age!

Patient, knowledgable, fun, effective

My youngest son (8) has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Gity for about six months now. So far she has been the best music teacher for my son as she is very patient and creative in teaching young children. The books she uses are very easy to follow, and my son loves them!
Jennifer K. Brooklyn, NY

About Jennifer

I have a Master's degree in music. My purpose as a teacher is to utilize all of my skills and education to realize my students' goals. I strive to inspire students towards musical excellence! I do this with much positive reinforcement, dialogue and critical analysis. With adults and advanced students, I include self-evaluation and discussion with the student so that they can become involved in their own development and musicianship.

*** Lesson Details ***
Tailoring each lesson to the individual needs of my students, I use a multi-faceted approach that includes memory, sight reading, ear-training and theory. This way students quickly build their repertoire and confidence on their instrument. Sing-a-longs train the musical ear, clapping reinforces rhythmic training, and ...

I have been playing piano since I was five years old - I majored in it for my degree and continue to play to this day both solo and collaboratively. I can teach any style at any level!

About Dan

I am a lifelong maker and lover of music. I have worked professionally in virtually every style, both studio and live, and would love to share my knowledge and passion for teaching with you.

I have many years of experience with dozens of students of all ages and experiences in virtually any style of music. I am a professional musician who studied both classical piano and jazz drums (performance) at McGill University's Schulich School of Music. I've played in small and large jazz groups, indie bands, metal bands, folk bands, many musical-directed and Broadway style shows in Boston and Montreal and played classically (solo and group) for the better percentage of my life.

I also have a serious interest in perception and cognition, thus my teaching style is fluid and modern. ...

Dan was an excellent teacher. His lessons were at once technical and hands on as well as incorporated with holistic explanations of how I should go about thinking listening to a tune in my head and working with my mind and body to turn that into sound on the piano. He helped me focus on optimizing my movements, not just in how I moved my fingers but how I used my whole body when I sat down at the piano to play. He helped find pieces that would emphasize whatever component we were focusing on that week, and that he thought I would enjoy playing. Dan helped make practicing a joy, and I continue to think back to his advice whenever I sit down to play.
