Piano class is an exciting and informative introduction to piano and music skills for beginning to intermediate level music students in grades Kindergarten through Adult. The goal of the course is not only to develop a solid musical foundation in piano which will greatly assist in the future pursuit of any musical instrument in any style, but most importantly to instill in the student an understanding of how music is put together and thereby yield a sense of appreciation and mastery, even of little accomplishments, which build upon one another to greater accomplishments.

Students are taught a stimulating, thorough, and graduated course of recital solos, theory, technical studies, and classic piano repertoire. Class size varies from 2 to 3 students (with the possibility of expansion) with group activities as well as one-on-one instruction. I have found that a group atmosphere is often more beneficial and enjoyable for beginning to intermediate level students because they are ...

About Tamari (Tamara)
Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you!

On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feedback-teaching--once you learn a concept or skill, teach it, as soon as you possibly can, to someone else! -- this reinforces your own knowledge of the skill or concept!
I've been teaching private lessons for many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment
to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I went to Indiana University's Jacob School of Music and earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

Tamari Witkin is not only an incredible musician, but is one of only a few teachers who is deeply committed to making sure that any student she takes under her wing will fledge comfortably and competently. Tamari has a keen sense of exactly what is needed to help a particular student overcome a particular pianistic impediment to learning to play the piano. Moreover, she brims with such enthusiasm that it all becomes so much fun studying with her that one cannot help but feel like and sound like they are becoming a pianist.
I highly recommend anyone at any level of piano playing to study with Tamari,

It was a pleasure working with Tamari Witkin over the years that she was located in Milford and participated in the Schubert Club of Fairfield County. I am familiar with her piano performance, which was high level, showing fine musicianship and great sensitivity to the message of the pieces.
I have also sung with her; and again, she shows a high degree of musicianship!

In over 30 years experience my students have enjoyed exploring music in a unique and fun way. I teach traditional European style and my goal is to have the students not just learn to read music and understand theory and composition but the art of interpretation. I have prepared students for state evaluations from the beginning levels to the most advanced, for the ABRSM exams, competitions, auditions to many events including famous institutions like The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music and many others, also working with music major students in colleges and universities who need to improve in their piano skills. I also teach interests like music theory, accomplishment, church music, improvisation, Voice and Chamber music. I have taught children from 4 years old to adults in their 70s and beyond.

About Clementa
I am a fun, very experienced pianist, teacher, coach and artist.
In my early age I won many competitions and performed in solo recitals and with symphony orchestras, also as a chamber musician, therefore I understand what it takes to not just learn music but what it takes to be a great performer and interpreter of music.
My beginner students enjoy a fun way of learning to read notes and interpret even the simplest songs and pieces. I introduce my students to technique by teaching scales in many forms , exercises and etudes. I also teach them theory and give them written homework to practice their knowledge while away from the lessons. They are rewarded with surprise gifts after earning a certain amount of A grades. Students of school age are prepared for state evaluations and festivals and participate in studio recitals. I also work wit
h students on their sight reading skills, theory, harmony and basic composition which tremendously help their understanding of the pieces they learn and how to aproach memorization and ultimately the interpretation and composer’s musical intent.
Students also enjoy performing chamber music with their fellow musician friends and enjoy fun parties after recitals.
Adult students come to my classes for many reasons the main ones being: wanting to learn about music or to perfect their skills. Many students are also interested in preparing for auditions to music institutions or exams in the music field they are already majoring in. Other areas of interest my students have include church music, hymn improvisation and sacred music performance.
My studies began when I was 6 years old in my city of birth Brasov, Romania and ended with my Bachelor and Masters degrees at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City. I performed all over the world as soloist and chamber musician together with my two brothers who are also professional musicians, violinist and cellist.
Students will be given a studio informational package upon registering with my studio which includes my resume, studio fees, studio activities and general studio activities information.
My students find me to be very funny but at the same time professional and very serious in my expectations of their weekly preparation for lessons.

I have had multiple teachers, and can easily say that Clementa stands out as most effective. What sets her apart is her outstanding qualities. She demonstrates
incredible patience and possess advanced technical ability. She is an inspiring teacher who makes learning fun. She engages with her students, and make music lessons an experience to look forward to. Her enthusiasm over a new piece, and her eagerness and joy to hear of progress made, is powerful and
contagious.It shows that she cares and is interested in our progress.
Her dedication has an immeasurable impact on the lives of al her students.

If you are looking for professional music lessons for learning to play the piano, I am a perfect match for you.
I am a professional pianist with substantial experience in teaching piano for students of different ages. I hold a Mater of Music in Piano Performance from Kharkiv National University of Arts, Ukraine, and a Master of Music degree from Anton Rubinstein International Music Academy, Germany in cooperation with " Giacomo Puccini's" State Music Conservatory, Italy.
While in Germany, I was performing as a solo pianist, playing chamber music and teaching at a private music academy.
As an experienced piano teacher I would say that no matter what kind/style of music you prefer to play, it is always better to have a classical background. It does not mean that you only need to focus on the classics, but learning and working on things like your technique, understanding harmony and music theory will help you in the future no matter what you decide to do: teaching, performing, ...

About Alena
As an experienced musician and piano teacher, I offer piano lessons for everyone who is willing to learn how to play the instrument and is passionate about it.
For some of us playing the piano could be a serious, life changing way of making a career as a famous musician and bringing your dream and passion to the next level.
For some of us it could be a nice hobby, where you can express your feeling and emotions by performing or composing music.
It's for you to decide but no matter what you are doing in your life, you should be passionate about it!

Being a music instructor for over 10 years and having experience teaching in Ukraine, Germany and USA, I try to combine different methods and find individual style of teaching for everyone, who is willing to learn (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).

I offer individual lesson plans a
nd music material depending on your music taste and personal needs. You don't need to worry about anything, just enjoy what you're doing and I will take care of the rest!

I have been playing piano myself for over 20 years and I would like to share my knowledge with others and have them fall in love with music as I did.

When my son was 11, he decided to take piano lessons. Mr Montavo, asked him why he chose that instrument and proceeded to have a conversation about the importance of practicing and not giving up. He is an amazing pianist and has a good knowledge of how to help kids succeed and grow as a musician. He helps with educating the parents on what kind of keyboard, piano, and music is best for your child

Hello,
my name is Anna and I am a piano/ vocal/ music theory teacher. I graduated from the Rimsky Korsakov College of Music, Saint Petersburg and now I continue to educate people in the music field in California. I have big experience in working with children and adults, combing Piano and Vocal technique to develop general musicality.
Although I have a solid theoretical and performance background, my lessons are not " your childhood boring nightmare". I want my students to feel the music not as "the most difficult and useless thing I've ever learnt" but as useful, beautiful and fun life skill!
All ages and levels are welcome!

About Anna
Hello!
I am a singer and vocal teacher (graduated from Rimsky Korsakov college of Music), I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and began my musical studies at the age of 5. From 2007 to 2012 sang in Mariinsky and Mikhaloivsky Theatre Choirs in the productions of Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov, Bizet’s Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Queen of Spades, Puccini’s «La boheme».
     In 2012 I continued my studies at the Rimsky Korsakov College of Music, Saint Petersburg in the class of professor Tatiana Cherkasova, a holder of the title Honored Artist of Russia. During this time she received several prizes including Diploma of International Vocal Competition «New Opera World» ,Moscow 2015; Laureate of International Vocal Competition «CRESCENDO INTERNATIONAL MUSIC COMPETITION» USA, New York In 2014 I performed in Saint-Petersburg Philharmonic Hall as a so
loist with Saint-Petersburg Folk orchestra
    I prefer to start with 5-6 y.o. because children at this age they are able to do some homework ( I think that a kid's personal desire to practice is a key to success)

I have worked with children in several fields: children voice (the technique is not the same as adult technique); piano; and combining piano and voice technique (sing and play); also, ( if children/parents want) we touched on music theory, which can be very fun, especially for young beginners.

My lessons are engaging, student-centered, and never intimidating. My goal is to meet the needs of the person in front of me - period. No longer study with someone who follows the "master-apprentice" approach. This mind-set is outdated, and most of all, ineffective. My extraordinary training in both psychology and music education allow me to convey the best of teaching strategies to my students, leading to their musical success.

You will not be disappointed.

About Lauren

Receiving her degrees from Bard College (BA - Piano Performance, Vocal Performance, Theater) and Columbia University (Music & Music Education), she has the excellent training to back up her skills in performing.

Focussed on a student-centered rapport at the forefront of her teaching philosophy, she is dedicated to meeting the needs of her students. She has a plethora of experience and teaching strategies to tailor toward her students.
