Lena L. New York, NY

In our lessons, beginning students will learn to read music, play their favorite pieces, how to do warm ups and learn basic skills. I use sheet music and introductory books in my classes and assign homework for their daily practice. After 3 months, each student will move to the next level and continue learning more advanced skills. More advanced students will learn how to understand and compose music, put expression into the pieces they play and improve their current skills.

About lena

I have been playing piano since I was a young child and have always had a passion for music. I apprenticed in China under a master piano teacher for 15 years and then immediately started performing in many different venues. 18 years ago, I started teaching piano and have enjoyed sharing my love of music with others. I am very patient with students and am very open to the type of music they would like to play. From pop music to classical, beginning to advanced, I am well versed. If there is a specific piece you want to play, I can fit it to your level. In my lessons, I try to make each experience meaningful and joyful. I am also available giving personalized lessons online nationwide. Looking forward to meeting you and sharing the joy of music in person and online. *** Lesson

What a sweet, patient, and committed teacher! At 28 yrs. old I recently decided to take up piano having dabbled with it as a child, and in these few short months Lena has taught me to play pieces I didn't think I would be playing for years!
My 7 yr old step-daughter also takes class with Lena and loves her. As a very shy child, she feels comfortable learning with Lena and has a new found sense of self confidence.She's even playing in a recital next month. I am amazed at her progress in such a short time. Lena is patient and kind, but strongly encourages daily practice with specific exercises sent home so that the child has a plan they can understand and commit to. I highly recommend her as a teacher to both children ,and adults of all levels.

Lena is such a wonderful teacher! She is patient and is really vested in making sure you get the most out of each lesson. I'm an adult beginner and in just the 4 lessons I've had, I've come a long way and have learned so much. I really want to learn Billy Joel songs and Lena has been great in guiding me and supporting what I love. She has helped build my confidence in front of the piano and I look forward to the upcoming recital! I always look forward to classes and can't wait to see my improvement at the end of 10 lessons.

Lena is a great teacher and she is very patient. Overall I have great experience of learning. As an adult student, I have zero experience with piano at all previously but after three months I am able to play one of my most favorite piece and I am learning a new piece now.

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 two sons 9 and 7 studied piano with Viva for 2 years. She is so much fun, so patient and so wonderfully good with children. My sons started piano with Viva and love playing and performing since the first lesson. My older son took lessons first, and because he would not get off the piano, my younger son wanted to take up piano too. They play duets now at home and look forward to going to piano lessons and performing for people once in a while. Really made the best choice in selecting Viva!

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.

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!
Kathryn Z. New York, NY

Reading of music and basic piano technique are emphasized, incorporating aspects of music theory and musicality.

About Kathryn

Kathy believes that variety is the spice of not only life, but also music. Raised singing folk music with a musical family (think accordions, guitars and lots of vocal harmonies), she learned guitar and piano at an early age, but began singing even earlier. Her quest to give the world the best her vocal cords could offer led her to obtain an undergraduate degree in vocal performance from the University of Nebraska (where she graduated honorable mention, named with the vocal department's Outstanding Senior in Music award, and also obtained a minor in theatre) and a master's degree in music from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Both of these degrees emphasized classical singing technique, and through this study Kathy gained a solid foundation for her musical craft. Once out of ...

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.

This way students quickly build their repertoire and confidence on their instrument. Sing-a-longs train the musical ear, clapping reinforces rhythmic training, and new, ...
