Paul M. New York, NY

My goal as a teacher is to make students successful in their goals. I work with a variety of people; some of them study music for personal enjoyment and others for their musical career. Everyone responds differently to music, that is why I prepare special lessons for each student. It is important that my students enjoy what they are playing and for that reason I have a variety of repertoire that they can choose from.
From a lot of experience with beginner piano students, both young and adults, I have been able to find a regimen of piano teaching that combines time efficiency with fun. As the lessons continue, I slowly add new tools to each weekly lesson that are exiting and interesting. While working with intermediate to advanced students, I have had coached them to apply and get accepted into some of the top Universities and Conservatories in the country. My students, beginner intermediate and advanced levels, have been awarded for their performances and activities in schools and ...

Paul is an amazing musician, teacher and individual. Over the course of a few weeks he specifically evaluated my singing and worked with me in order to improve my singing. With every lesson that I had, I was able to notice real improvement in my voice. Paul also exposed me to a wide array of musical styles, in order to better get to know my voice which I thoroughly enjoyed. He is very encouraging and friendly, from the first lesson he already works to help you feel comfortable.

All in all, by having Paul as an instructor you get to learn from an amazing, accomplished musician who truly knows his field and who also has a great personality while being a great teacher, I think that sums it up pretty well.

Paul is an excellent piano teacher. I came to him having forgotten how to read music after not playing for 10 years. I wanted to bring piano music back into my life. Gradually, over 4 months, I recovered everything I had previously forgotten and have progressed quickly with his patient yet encouraging and inspirational teaching style. Paul has introduced me to a wide range of music, which has pushed my piano playing to improve in all directions and on new levels. It has been a wonderful experience, and I am excited to continue and see where the music takes me.
Joe A. New York, NY

My lessons cater to the student, the individual; no one is the same and there is no one correct way to learn how to play the piano. I grew up with many teachers who thought otherwise and who nearly turned me off to the instrument entirely, but I luckily found a great guide for me before it was too late.

Because of this, I do not have one method of teaching. Rather, I have many. I find it important to talk to the student before beginning lessons; to discover the student's current musical interests, wants, and dreams, and from there I am able to anticipate how our method of study should go.

About Joe

Recently profiled in the Wall Street Journal by the legendary journalist Nat Hentoff, and cited as "the next Harry Connick" and "a pianistic wunderkind who brandishes a lyrical pianistic touch and an intuitive sense of swing that are a uniquely wonderful joy to hear,€ by New York City's Hot House Jazz Magazine, 24 year-old Joe surely has a bright future ahead of him. A recent graduate of New York University's Jazz Program, Joe is very excited at this opportunity to delve into another passion of his: teaching. Joe is an adjunct-faculty member at NYU where he teaches and creates the curriculum for jazz keyboard classes entitled Keyboard Harmony I & II. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Joe moved to New York in the fall of 2007 to study music at New York University. While there, ...

Very patient and Fun!

I feel very lucky to be able to work with Joe because he is an extremely talented pianist.
He has been very patient and nice to me from the beginning as I am starting again after not playing for a long time.

He is concerned about my motivation, asks me if I'm getting bored of the same song, and most of all he is very very flexible with my schedule!!

His method is new to me, and I am happy to be learning about chords and theory in a fun and practical way.

I would totally recommend Joe!
Nadia B. New York, NY

A classically-trained musician, Nadia has been teaching piano for many years. A summa cum laude graduate of New York University in Music Performance, she excels at helping students to progress to reading music easily, playing in an expressive way and improving piano technique and understanding of all the elements of music. Nadia also emphasizes whole musicianship in her lessons, incorporating theory and other elements of music into lessons to facilitate a deeper understanding of the music. She is a friendly, encouraging and dedicated teacher who aims to teach each student according to his or her needs and interests.

About Nadia

My approach as a piano and flute teacher is to endow each student with the skills and tools needed to improve his/her playing ability, increase musical expression and cultivate continued musical growth both in lessons and in practice time. With nine years of teaching experience, I understand that each student’s learning style, goals and interests vary, and I work to engage and delight every student. My training in Music Performance at New York University, from which I graduated Summa Cum Laude, as well as my three-year, 1600-hour training to become a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, which I completed in 2012, influence my teaching. The Alexander Technique is a method for integrating breathing, movement and postural support. It is invaluable for musicians as a tool to ...

Flute
Nadia is an Amazing, Talented, Effective and Kind Teacher........

NADIA is an Amazing teacher! I am a professional Musician (Opera Singer), and always dreamed of playing the Flute. With Nadia's skill as a wonderful flutist and her knowledge of Alexander Technique mixed in with her teaching of the Flute, I have very quickly developed a comfortable and proper position while playing. As a beginner in Flute, I must say that she has truly helped me begin to make some great sounds, sight-read easily, develop Good playing-Habits, and enjoy playing and caring for my Flute. It is RARE to find a Great Teacher who is both "effective" and "kind". I Highly recommend Nadia to ALL those who Love Music and the FLUTE!!

Andrea W. New York, NY

I have taught basic piano for years. This is a great skill to have under your belt as a foundation for whatever musical style or instrument you decide to pursue later.
I began playing the piano at age 5, double majored in it in high school, and am forever thankful of my ability to accompany myself and learn a piece on my own. Plus, it helps you compose!

It's never to late to learn some piano, but the earlier the better is always great!
