Andrei P.

Matawan, NJ

About Andrei

Teaching music is my passion, it is more than just a career. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. Hopefully after each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music theory and have enjoyed their time. I am available to teach Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Bass, Upright Bass, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Piano, and beginner Drums.

I am a husband and father. I teach all age ranges.

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach each lesson differently because every student is unique. During the initial
lesson I will begin to assess the student's ability, determine the best teaching technique for them, and setup a practicing at home guideline. My job is to help the student reach their individual goals and support them along the way. I feel every student deserves to learn to read music and I will concentrate on this with them.

Lessons are taught in my personal music studio; it is a laid-back, family friendly environment. There may be specific books and supplies I recommend purchasing (these will enhance the success of a budding musician). I will most likely also hand out sheet music of songs to practice and may recommend certain artists within specific genres for the students to listen to and familiarize themselves with.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical/Flamenco guitar. I can teach many different styles such as Rock, Blues, Jazz, etc. I am always learning, and am willing to learn so that my students get the best experience possible.

Charles is just great....there's no way I could have found a better teacher. Not only does he know everything there is to know about music, he's interested in keeping the lessons and learning interesting and fun. You can tell he really cares about trying to help his students to both progress, learn some theory, but to have fun and build skills they'll use/enjoy for a long time. Really impressive.

Charlie has been giving lessons to my son and is the absolute best! He is passionate about music and brings such energy to each lesson. My son is learning how to play jazz from Charlie after being classically trained. It has opened up a whole new world for him.

It great listening to the lessons because Charlie and my son enjoy music so much.

Charlie is the best piano teacher I have worked with. In just two months of taking lessons with him, I have learned myriads of info about music, theory, jazz, blues, and the classics. Being under his tutelage is truly an honor and he is patient with me even when I don't practice (Although I must say he's a real stickler for that). I would recommend anyone to him with a desire for music whether you are 5 or 55.

Anastassia was patient and kind with my 12 year old daughter who had never had singing lessons before. When my daughter started to feel nervous she quickly calmed her and had her sing one of her favorite songs along with a you tube video of the artist. She helped her with her pitch and range and breathing too.

Ari F.

East Brunswick, NJ

About Ari

Hi! My name is Ari, I'm 20 years old and a junior at Kean University, studying Music Education. I am a 3.8 GPA student who has been studying cello since I was 8 and piano since I was 3. I have a permissive teaching style that is sensitive to developmental disability and mental illness, but also can be quite harrowing and strict if you have the desire to truly become a great musician.
My specialties are strings, music theory, and piano. I'm very energetic and expect genuine effort from all my students. I try to make things fun, so I hope you try too!

Catherine S.

Marlboro, NJ

About Catherine

I have been a music teacher for over two decades, teaching individual piano lessons, group workshops on piano technique/music theory/music performance, and early childhood music. To me, teaching is about the person (student), not the curriculum or material - my focus is always on the student first, the material second. I like to engage and motivate students based on their interests and learning styles. I am always looking to develop as much rapport with my students as possible and connect with them personally and also through music.

My training background was initially in piano performan
ce, with a BM from Manhattan School of Music and a MA from Queens College (CUNY). Currently I am in the doctoral program in Music and Music Education at Teachers College Columbia University.

I am always looking forward to having fun with my students in lessons, and learn and grow through the wonder and joy of music!

My daughter has studied with Catherine since 4th grade. Catherine is a passionate, enthusiastic, fair, and caring teacher. She has always helped in making sure my daughter was able to perform at her best, and she was extremely encouraging. Tangmei has helped my daughter progress so much as a musician, and I could not have asked for a better teacher.

My son has been taking lessons with Central Jersey Piano for the 5th year now. Over the years, through Ms. Catherine's guidance, he has developed proper piano fingering skills and habits. He has learned a lot of classical music and Ms. Catherine also stimulates him by suggesting fun pieces of his interest such as video game music. He looks forward to his lessons every week.
