I have had a wonderful organ teacher, Shoko, for quite a few months. She is very patient, extremely pleasant and teaches very well. I learned quite a bit from her since I knew no organ playing at all at onset.

May she have a long teaching carrier.

Ms. Shoko is teaching my 6 year old son to play the piano. She's doing a great job. She makes it fun for him because he loves to be silly all the time. I recommend her as a piano teacher.

Highly recommended for any level piano student.

As an experienced piano student, Shoko quickly identified my weaknesses and provided great instruction and exercises to correct those weaknesses. She has much experience in all kinds of music forms and taught me how to expand my knowledge and creativity. I improved my piano playing greatly in just a couple of months working with her.

Shoko is also a lot of fun to play piano with; she pushes you to improve and is also very polite.

About Paul

I teach from a student's existing musical reality. Regardless of age, people have music that they like and love, as well as dislike. Through speaking with a student, I gather musical styles, genres, composers, artists, and songs that the student enjoys and I begin teaching this music to the student immediately, regardless of musical knowledge on their instrument. In the case of a beginner student, I customize personal arrangements of musical pieces for each student to match a student's current musical skill set.
I have found that a student has as much to show me about their own musical reality than I have to show about mine. I am more of a facilitator than a traditional teacher. I help set up goals as far as song selections, and various performance possibilities: sight-reading ...

Turner is a really super teacher- very friendly, patient, and flexible.

He doesn't mind explaining things over again, helps give you other options for chords that are tricky, gives really constructive feedback, and I really feel like I've been making some real progress. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

Turner is truly an amazing tutor. In just a few months he taught me how to play one of my favorite French songs on a piano. Although he was not aware of the song, he learned it himself and was able to teach me. He accommodates with my schedule and is very flexible.
He is also very patient and knowledgeable.
I would recommend Turner to any of my friends.

About Daphne

Hi there!

My primary gig is teaching anything with a keyboard. Having played the keyboards since I was 5, (initially the organ before moving on to the piano), I have acquired the adequate skills to transfer my knowledge to beginners. My objective for my current and prospective students is to be able to teach them to read notes so that they can eventually pick up a piece of music score and work on them on their own. Independence is key, and with adequate practice, my technique allows my students to be able to sight-read pretty much on the spot.

I'm also opened to teaching the Rubik's cube. Yes, the Rubik's cube. There is a set of steps that will guarantee anyone to be able to solve it. I'll definitely be looking forward to teach that!

Eric L. Brooklyn, NY

I have long loved the art of the B3 organ and have played in many groups over the years playing left-hand bass. There is a true nuance that comes from manipulated the draw bars and understanding the attack, sustain, and release of this keyboard instrument.
