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 ...

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!!
Emily H. Middletown, CT

Piano is a great first instrument for anyone interested in making music, no matter what your age or experience is. In the past 5 years of teaching, I have taught students from all sorts of musical backgrounds, ages 5-50! I have played piano almost my whole life and love sharing it with my students. I instill in them not only an understanding of technique and music theory, but also musicality and a love for many styles of music. For those new to reading music, I will help you with sight reading, scales, and the musical differences between styles. I use the Faber & Faber Piano Adventures curriculum for beginners, and have found it to be very effective in teaching students to read music for the first time. For those less new to reading music or at a more advanced level of piano, I am also able to use teach my students from a music theory perspective, by introducing concepts of tonality and the construction of harmony. I always encourage you to choose pieces that interest you, as well as ...

About Emily

Singing and playing piano have always been a huge part of my life. I love to perform everything from opera and sacred music to music theater and jazz, and have been performing since I was very young. I earned my Bachelor’s of Music in vocal performance from DePaul University School of Music in Chicago. It was there that I fell in love with teaching, when I taught my first student as part of a course in vocal pedagogy. Since then I have built my studio to over 20 voice and piano students here in NY and CT. It has been thrilling to see all the progress they've made! I am currently pursuing a Masters of Music at Brooklyn College, where the schedule still allows me to teach my students. I have had several excellent and truly inspiring teachers myself with different teaching styles, and so

Emily knows her stuff!

I was impressed with how thorough Emily's singing lessons were. She explains how to breathe properly and why it's so important for vocal production. Her training space is comfortable and homey. I hope to take more lessons from her in the future.

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 ...

Lessons with Kathryn have been a great start to learning how to sing. As a complete beginner, she made it comfortable and engaging. I jumped right in and have been enjoying the lessons (not to mention learning a lot along the way)
Jennifer K. Brooklyn, NY

I teach beginning piano to advanced levels. I also do audition preparation as well as performance prep.

I present my students of all levels and all ages in two recitals per year. A holiday recital, and a spring formal recital. Join us for our next performance!

Practice, Practice, Practice!

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. With adults and advanced students, I include self-evaluation and discussion with the student so that they can become involved in their own development and musicianship. *** Lesson Details *** Tailoring each lesson to the individual needs of my students, I use a multi-faceted approach that includes memory, sight reading, ear-training and theory. 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, ...

Dan G. Brooklyn, NY

I have been playing piano since I was five years old - I majored in it for my degree and continue to play to this day both solo and collaboratively. I can teach any style at any level!

About Dan

I am a lifelong maker and lover of music. I have worked professionally in virtually every style, both studio and live, and would love to share my knowledge and passion for teaching with you. I have many years of experience with dozens of students of all ages and experiences in virtually any style of music. I am a professional musician who studied both classical piano and jazz drums (performance) at McGill University's Schulich School of Music. I've played in small and large jazz groups, indie bands, metal bands, folk bands, many musical-directed and Broadway style shows in Boston and Montreal and played classically (solo and group) for the better percentage of my life. I also have a serious interest in perception and cognition, thus my teaching style is fluid and modern. I love ...

Dan was an excellent teacher. His lessons were at once technical and hands on as well as incorporated with holistic explanations of how I should go about thinking listening to a tune in my head and working with my mind and body to turn that into sound on the piano. He helped me focus on optimizing my movements, not just in how I moved my fingers but how I used my whole body when I sat down at the piano to play. He helped find pieces that would emphasize whatever component we were focusing on that week, and that he thought I would enjoy playing. Dan helped make practicing a joy, and I continue to think back to his advice whenever I sit down to play.
