Tu Quyen was an absolutely amazing teacher. I've recently got back into piano after a 14-year hiatus and had to start from scratch. She understood and was able to accommodate & adjust my lessons accordingly. She is also one of the only teacher I've had that teaches me how important it is to connect with the piano and the songs as the pianist. Highly recommended!

Tu Quyen was excellent. She read the information I sent her on my experience and interests, and fine-tuned my lesson exactly to my taste and level.

For example, I mentioned at the beginning of the lesson that I would like to learn music theory to aid my practicing, and she incorporated it into the lesson immediately. She even gave examples using ballet, which I had mentioned in my bio.

Tu Quyen is kind and friendly, and her lessons are pleasant and productive.

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.

Christina B.

New York, NY

About Christina

I began piano at age 6 under Suzuki-certified instructor Cindy Wittenburg. I loved everything about it - even practicing scales! After nine years, I took a break from piano and took up drums. While I loved drumming, upon my entry to Millersville University, I decided my number one love was still the ivories. I began learning under Dr. Anita Renfroe, graduating with a B.A. in Music Business & Technology. Although no longer in classes, I still teach myself piano works as well as write new pieces.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching philosophy is: Enjoy your time while learning something valua
ble! My teaching style is informal and relaxed, but I expect discipline and practicing on the end of the student. I love the excitement my students get from seeing progress, and if you're willing to work a little, progress is a guaranteed reward!

If you're someone who has never touched a keyboard in their life, after 4-6 months you can expect to be able to understand note values, read simple rhythms, sightread simple works, play pieces with two hands, among many other valuable skill sets. Late beginner to intermediate students can expect to be playing early advanced pieces within this time frame, as well as understanding more advanced concepts and techniques.

I utilize the Kodaly solfege method as I was taught at Millersville University, because I have found it invaluable in learning pieces. As a beginner, you will learn note values, rhythms, sight-reading, how to sing while playing, musical vocabulary, basic music history, theory relative to the piece you are learning, scales, arpeggios, proper performance technique, and much more! I frequently request a simple composition from the student to increase creativity and understanding of the instrument, and try to hold a recital bi-yearly for the students to show off their improvements!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I either provide the books and the parents reimburse me, or I tell the parents what to purchase. expect the student to provide either a piano or keyboard, a proper bench and music stand.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Romantic, Contemporary, Rock, Pop

Lessons take place at my home studio. Lessons may be recorded on my professional recording equipment or you may bring your own recording devices. This is an excellent learning tool. I teach my students how to extend their range, increase breath control and the freedom of their body in order to enable a free and easy produced vocal tone. I teach song repertoire to the student's particular musical style choices. I also work with students that wish to write their own songs so that their musical ideas can be heard clearly and precisely. A guitar is available for students if they wish to use it to accompany themselves. I teach my students how to deal with performance anxiety .

Timothy H.

New York, NY

I have been teaching piano for three years. I am happy to get students moving in the right direction on piano, and will teach up to an intermediate level of playing, from Beethoven to Joplin.

I prefer is to use a method book, which introduces and reinforces music fundamentals. Simultaneously, I like to allow the student to select a piece of music that they will enjoy learning and playing. This helps the student apply the often challenging fundamentals to music that they enjoy.

My students have fun, and with practice, learn a lot!

About Timothy

I am a songwriter, composer, and performer living in New York City. I am a formally trained musician with considerable real world performing experience. Teaching music is something I enjoy immensely and something I am extremely passionate about.

During my time as a college student studying music, I began teaching guitar lessons. I found the work to be extremely rewarding. I was happy to be spreading a bit of love for music around, and I believe I made some lasting impressions. I continued to teach music lessons after I graduated, expanding to teach piano as well.

The more I taug
ht, the more I found sincere joy in teaching. As I was was getting to know each of my students better, I realized that I was doing more than just teaching music lessons. I was acting as an example, a friend, and a counselor of sorts. I realized that each lesson was an opportunity to influence each of my students in a positive way, however small or large. To be granted that opportunity was truly thrilling.

I teach guitar from beginner to advanced levels of performance, in many styles. I teach piano up to an intermediate level. I specialize in Jazz, Folk, Blues, Rock, Funk, and pretty much any contemporary style a student might be interested in learning. Although not my specialty, I am capable of teaching classical styles as well.

I am very excited to teach anyone interested in learning about the wonders of music, and I love to work with all ages.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons, students can expect to have lots of fun, and learn a lot. I like to think that my students always enjoy their lessons with me. I am friendly, warm, personable, caring, and fun. I strive to find the perfect balance between learning the important fundamentals of music, and just plain enjoying music. Music takes hard work, but music is supposed to be fun!

I consider myself to be a laid back person, and I do not expect any strict formalities when interacting with students. I feel that the more comfortable a student is, the more easily that student can learn and have fun doing so. However, I do expect my students to thoroughly practice, to focus, and to strive to improve.

I tailor each lesson to a student's particular needs. Everyone learns and interprets music in different ways, so I strive to serve each of my students uniquely. From basic fundamentals to advanced techniques, I cover everything. I also give each student an opportunity to choose some music that they would enjoy learning.

My curriculum changes depending on the student's ability level, age, and instrument of choice. I typically use a method book for reinforcement of musical fundamentals, and a supplementary "project" piece of music that the student enjoys playing and learning. I do this so that my students can see direct connections between music fundamentals and playing music that they enjoy. My own personal knowledge and experience as a musician is always added to each lesson as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For guitar lessons, I provide my guitar and any equipment that the student may not have initially, like for example, their own guitar, or music stand. Piano students will need their own keyboard for the very first lesson. The student should eventually provide their own instrument and equipment, such as their own guitar, music stand, and copy of the selected method book; all of which are things that they will need in order to pursue practicing on their own time.

*** Specialties ***
I am capable of teaching using many methods, styles, and genres, depending on the student and their particular needs. However, I specialize in jazz, folk, and rock styles, as well as improvisation.

*** Lesson Details ***
Methods and Materials Used:

Most of my beginner students are children from grade 3 to 8 who play violin or viola, and I usually begin by building their physical fundamentals (how to hold the instrument and the bow, how to stand, etc.). I find that having visual imagery can be helpful to the students, for example, asking the student's fingers to form a tunnel on the fingerboard to prevent their fingers from collapsing. After that, I teach a scale and write down a well-known tune (Twinkle Twinkle or Mary Had a Little Lamb) that corresponds the notes to that scale. My goal for these students is for them to be able to play any tune on the page comfortably by themselves. For my more advanced students, I concentrate on more technical aspects of playing, namely intonation, rhythm, and posture by using exercises from Hal Leonard's Essential Elements, Samuel Applebaum's String Builder, and the Suzuki books. I also begin to introduce musical aspects of playing, namely phrasing, dynamics, and articulation. For my advanced students, I introduce them to an early classical work or Baroque work, and supplement exercises that aid in the learning the piece. I also coach professional players who are looking to apply for music schools, competitions, and auditions.

Lesson Style:
I strongly believe having a fun and interactive lesson with a student is the key to learning music. I am a very patient and open-minded educator because I understand that it can be a daunting task to learn something if the student doesn't enjoy it. For example, some of my older beginner students feel silly when I ask them to learn Twinkle Twinkle, so I ask them for their favorite song, and I transcribe the tune for them to practice. For some students, motivation comes from having a perceivable goal, in which I encourage the students to apply for auditions, such as N.Y.S.S.M.A. Let me know what your needs are, and I am happy to accommodate my style of teaching depending on your personality and progress. I am here not just to teach, but also to inspire and have fun with music with you.
