Tu Quyen loves kids and knows how to bring the best out of them. My son just turned into 6 and is a little shy. But he was confident at taking her lessons all by himself and made amazing progress in less a year. I am looking forward to his another year of happy piano lessons.

Tu Quyen is a wonderful teacher. She is qualified, talented and devoted. My 12-year old loves her. My 19-year old college student still takes lessons with her when he's home for the summer and for the holidays. I highly recommend Tu Quyen.

Tu Quyen has a warm, patient, and generous teaching manner. She is a wonderful teacher both for younger kids and adults, and I experienced her teaching from both perspectives, for myself and my son.
I highly recommend her for those who are serious about learning the piano, and those who want to learn and enjoy music the correct way, as she emphasizes not only technique but also the connection of the music to the person's heart and mind. I could not ask for a better teacher.

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.

Asuka U. New York, NY

Trained at perfect pitch course at YAMAHA institute in Japan. Many competition experiences. A winner of Electric Piano Competition at YAMAHA Electric Piano Festival.

About Asuka

I started my musical training as a pianist at YAMAHA institute at age 4 in Japan. I was selected to enter perfect pitch class. It was designated for students who have perfect pitch and potentials to be professional musicians.

I enjoyed playing piano and electric piano and won the 1st prize at Kitakantou Electric Piano Competition hosted by YAMAHA institute. Because of the intensive training, I have been accompanying my students' recitals and performance exams.

As much as I enjoyed playing piano, I discovered that I also love singing, so I started to take singing lessons and majored in vocal performance during my college days.

Since I have graduated, I have been performing opera professionally. My career highlights include roles as Pamina (Die Zauberflote) with Opera ...

I have been taking classes with Asuka for about 10 months and It has been a wonderful experience. I started of as complete beginner & it is amazing to think about how far I've come with Asuka's help. She allowed me to double up and learn both piano and singing in the same lesson and it has been great. The perfect balance useful critiques & helpful encouragement.

I've been studying with Asuka for over half-year and will definitely continue. I am an amateur singer with 7 years of practice vanished after years of not singing. Since I started singing with Asuka, my voice has become richer, stronger, and more coordinated with breathing. She varies exercises, so the lessons are never boring and always a good challenge. Asuka has a very inspiring voice herself, and she's a very responsible, dedicated and attentive teacher who's also very fun to work with.

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.

A New Approach to Piano Lessons in New York City

By Glen F. - NYC Piano Teacher

I have always loved music and playing the piano, and I have achieved lots of success performing music in all styles, culminating with a degree in piano performance from the Manhattan School of Music. I was capable of playing practically anything I wanted, but there was something deeper and more meaningful I wanted to go after. I wanted to achieve more physical freedom, more brilliance in my sound, and a conscious approach to music that focused on solving technical and expressive problems directly. I found that with an approach called The Art of Practicing, which is based on the teachings of Madeline Bruser, author of the book with the same title.

While studying with Ms. Bruser, she introduced me to very basic, but far-reaching concepts such as sitting ...
