Experienced teacher with their Doctorate in Viola Performance! I have 10 years of teaching experience and prefer to teach all levels from beginners to advanced students. Lessons are catered to the age and ability of each student and include music history and theory should those prove interesting to you. I frequently teach pop songs in lessons as well! Fun facts include that I recently have played on the Lego Movie 2 soundtrack, as well as Charlie's Angels, and Bad Boys 3. Come study with a professional musician!

Dr. J is fabulous. I am a credentialed music teacher at a public school and she comes to teach sectionals and ensembles. She has a strong rapport with the kids, who adore her, while simultaneously having high expectations. Students feel appropriately challenged and love working with Dr. J. She is the celebrity on campus for all ages alike.

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

I teach all levels of piano. ear training, music theory, music performance. I teach old fashioned classical music, as well as playing by chords (usually preferred by adult beginners) but also will incorporate
playing by chords with classical training, because it enhances knowledge of music theory. I've developed my own task analysis for learning chord piano, which means I break it down into steps. I focus on keeping the student's enthusiasm and focus on assessing and providing a positive and successful outcome from the first lesson.

About Roseann

I have been teaching piano for almost 40 years. I have a NY state music teachers license, a masters in music therapy from NYU, and a bachelors in Music Education and AFFA certification. I try to keep the student self-motivated by using music that the student likes, as well as covering the basics.

Skillful and professional instructor.

Roseann has a very pleasant personality and makes learning the guitar enjoyable and exciting for my six year old daughter. She gives clear and concise instructions that my daughter can understand and follow on her own while practicing at home. I would highly recommend Roesann to anyone interested in learning the guitar.

"I take flute lessons from Drew. He is a real flutist with musical talent and technique. Not only that but he has such good eyes and ears to tell me what I am missing. He corrected me things that none of my past teachers mentioned to me. I really enjoy playing so I keep practicing till I can play like him!"
