Private Classical Piano Teacher

I am a personable piano teacher, who is adept at making conservatory-style piano study accessible to the broader public. I'm more than happy to take on beginners or more advanced students, and have a wholistic approach to piano learning, including a study of music theory, sight-reading, and musicianship/musicality. As a pianist who has performed recitals much of my life, is studying for his graduate degree in piano at the Juilliard School of Music, and has taught for many years both privately and collegiately, I have experience and knowledge to help take your piano and performance skills to the next level, in preparation for your own recital, competition, ABRSM examination, college audition, and more.

Hope to meet you soon and begin your piano adventure together!

I have been teaching this subject for over 16 years. The main curriculum for beginners is Alfred's Basic Piano Library. There are three beginner levels (beginner, late, adult) and one will be selected after the first meeting. For non-beginning students, the course of study will be developed based on past experience, current abilities, and goals. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is a part of subsequent lessons. Music is not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

Troy is an absolutely magical teacher and mentor. He not only provides caring, personalized instruction that goes far beyond the traditional fundamentals, he really takes the time to push me in ways that I find enjoyable and rewarding. I feel as though my lessons are dynamic and varied enough to keep me always engaged and looking forward to that next session. Best of all, Troy is that special type of guru that really gives you that added incentive to go the extra mile...I never feel a guilt or pressure to be at a certain level or practice a certain amount, I just feel this desire to impress Troy during my next lessons. Awesome stuff - very special guy! Looking forward to a lifetime of learning with Troy!

I love Classical music! Who doesn't love Beethoven's "Fur Elise" or "Ode To Joy"? Your child, or you, can learn to play these and other beautiful songs.

All lessons are based on the needs and goals of the individual and their parents. I discover how you learn so that it is easy for you.

You will learn how to properly use your body as you play in order to make performing fluid, musical and simpler.

For 27 years, it has been my joy to help students develop their talents, minds and creativity and become artists.

I love it ❤️

At my granddaughter's request, I listened and enjoyed her lesson very much! Miss Ginni was very enthusiastic and demonstrated competence in working with adolescents and knowing her music well. She could tell the notes from just listening to my granddaughter play and she continually praised her efforts.Yet she kindly corrected mistakes when needed.
I learned from listening and I think I might like Miss Ginni as a teacher too!

Ginni is amazingly knowledgeable in all things singing and can not only help you achieve your goals but aid in the best choices to make for the advancement of your singing career. She is very kind, flexible, and motivating. You cannot ask for a better voice teacher.

"I am so happy to have found Rina. My 11 year old has been going to Rina for over 4 years and my 8 year old for 2. Rina is so patient and calm and she's been able to keep my kids engaged for the past year and a half via virtual classes. Both my kids progressed with their skills of playing piano beautifully. My oldest often sits down and plays and tries to figure out tunes and melodies by ear.
I have recommended and will continue recommend Rina to anyone looking to start their kids with a musical instrument."

Motivation to practice on a daily basis is always a challenge at this young age, but Niki has instilled in our daughter a passion for piano.

"My daughters and I took lessons from Daniela between 1998 and 2009, 11 years. Daniela taught my youngest daughter through high school, preparing her with excellent skills, technique, and theory to enter into music conservatory. Daniela is gifted, energetic, and passionate in bringing out the best in each student to the best of his/her ability. Her professionalism, passion and high standards are reflected in each lesson and recital as well as in her choice of repertoire. I can say with the utmost confidence that a better teacher would be very difficult to find."

"For 2020, I focused a lot on left-hand ostinatos for improvising, and practicing scales & chords. I also worked on composition, recording, and in general improved the timing of both hands.

For classical piano, I worked a bit on the Adagio from the Moonlight Sonata, the Eb Major Nocturne and the Adagio from the C major Mozart Concerto, and also the first Invention.

I dedicated more time to the improvising and ostinato practice. While my pedaling improved, it still has a ways to go before I can play some of the classical piano repertoire.

In any case, it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot!

Thanks very much!"
