My daughter is so happy with her lessons from Summer. She does a great job individualizing the curriculum, and even making the more monotonous parts engaging. Highly recommend.
Carolyn
I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. At the age of 50 I decided it was a perfect time! I picked Summer and it was the best choice I ever made!! She is such a great , patient teacher. She explains every thing so thoroughly that I had no problems understanding her! I caught on and achieved my goal of playing my favorite song, "Claire De lune" and more, I may not sound like a concert pianist, but I am proud of my accomplishment. It never would have happened with out such a fabulous teacher!
Peyton
This is from my daughter who is taking lessons with Summer: “Summer has really helped me learn guitar. I have learned 20 songs now with her and she speeds things up if it is too easy and she lets me learn another song if one is too hard. I like her a lot.”

Our lessons will be laid-back, encouraging, and productive. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background. Students who study guitar with me will not only learn songs they love to play, but will learn proper technique, sight-reading, music theory, and ear training. I tailor each lesson based on the musical interests and goals of the student. I aim to give the students a solid foundation in technique and theory in order to help the student feel comfortable with the guitar and to make progress at a steady rate.

I believe that anyone can learn an instrument and, even more importantly, that everyone can enjoy the process of learning music. I lived in Brazil, Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, and in Boston before moving to New York. Moving around so much has brought me in contact with all sorts of people an

If you're reading this, you are very lucky because you've just found the most amazing music teacher!
Our son has studied piano with Joao for the past four years. He started with Joao when he was six and continues to this day. He loves Joao. Joao is a patient, intuitive and adaptive teacher that provides incredible instruction, in any music genre. He honed in on our son's musical interests early on, making learning piano fun and interesting. We often say, Joao is not just teaching our son piano, he is giving him a music education, introducing him to an array of amazing pieces from different genres. He's a rare talent both as a teacher and musician. We feel incredibly lucky to have found him. You will too!
Michael
I studied jazz piano with Joao for over a year. In my time working with him, I learned a tremendous amount. Joao is both an extremely talented musician and a skilled instructor. He clearly cares a great deal about his students and their progress. He was always patient (especially during weeks when my practicing had been slow) and both encouraging and supportive of my efforts to master new concepts in jazz. Joao has an excellent sense for what his students want to accomplish in their musical explorations, and an ability to tailor his lessons to the student’s unique goals. He has an impressive knowledge of both the history of jazz and music theory which makes him an incredible resource for learning about the jazz idiom. Last but not least, Joao was very personable and fun to talk to, and I always a enjoyed working with him. He is an outstanding teacher.
Margaret
Joao is an amazing piano teacher. I would highly recommend taking lessons with him!

I customize my students curriculum based on their specific goals. I feel teaching students to play and transcribe songs and solos is my most important job. Most students come to me looking for structure so I try and provide a clear path for them to reach their goals. Although I love teaching music theory I understand that it is not for everyone, so I only offer theoretical principles when it is appropriate or asked for. I rarely use textbooks, but I do employ a lot of exercises and educational material when it applies to a lesson.  

For students with no prior music experience I use text books, and exercises to strengthen their technique, expose them to musical ideas, and give them a foundation of basic music theory.  After that is accomplished I move into a curriculum that is more personal to their specific goals.

He pays attention to detail, is super organized with a definite plan and knows how to keep a student's interest. He is balanced and very realistic in his approach. He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him.

I excel at Classical, Jazz, Blues, Funk/Soul, Rock, Pop and Folk.

"A little bit of backstory for reference: When I was younger, around middle school through high school I played guitar. I took lessons and played a lot, mostly within a certain comfort zone that I found and I was objectively speaking mediocre. I get to college and school overwhelmed my playing and later work also overwhelmed it further. About 9 months ago I started to get the itch again after over a decade of not playing and wanted to learn things that I didn't have the temperament for when I was younger.

Enter Eric: Within the past 9 months I have learned more than I did when I played prior for ~8 to 10 years. Eric was quick at learning where I was at and each lesson involved pushing a little bit forward past my comfort zone. This said, each lesson I have gotten a lot to work on. It seemed overwhelming at first, however things have all started to gel in my brain and my fingers to the point where I was able to see and understand why I was given a specific exercise when I was and see how it all fits together. Learning theory and executing it is no easy task so it has taken a lot of work on my end and Eric has always been patient with my progress and moreover I have been extremely happy with my rate of progress.

Lessons are always a good time, they always feel like I am hanging out with a friend rather than a teacher. Eric is great to talk to about music, and his passion for music is evident, all types of music. It is crystal clear that he not only has a profound love for music, but he understands it and hears it in a way that most people don't. Sometimes I wish I could hear music the way he does and be able to wax poetic about the nuances, but taking lessons with Eric has surely made me appreciate music more and listen to everything a little differently. At 30 years old I think I am re-falling in love with music all over again."
