I am very passionate about music and spend many hours everyday playing the piano and teaching. My love for music began at a very young age. I remember playing with the glockenspiel and toy organ as a young child. I started playing the piano by ear and then later studied formally in college and received my degree. I studied piano at Concordia College and The Westchester Conservatory of Music. I teach all styles of piano, Classical, Pop, Rock, Broadway, or Jazz. I am patient, friendly and know how to make learning music fun.

I'm a product of the piano school of Tobias Matthay at the Royal College of music in London. I studied with two of his proteges, Frank Mannheimer and Denise Lassimone, as well as Trinity College of Music, London. I can teach anyone from preschoolers who can't read music to advanced colleagues.
My job is to get your child crazy about the piano. If you have to nag your child to play, something is wrong. The basics are, of course, important, but until you have gotten the child to accept and love the piano as an object of enjoyment, all that practicing will go nowhere. How do I do it? I think it's easier to learn the piano if you are having fun, and that means playing music that you like. You can always choose what you will play in lessons, and lessons are designed around your preferences, and move at a pace comfortable to you. The basics are still taught, but at a pace that your child finds comfortable. The result of this is that I will get your child to go the piano and play by themselves with no nagging. I have had the complete classical conservatory experience, yet
STUDYING WITH ME: Learning guitar should be interesting and fun! While we're studying all the different aspects of the instrument, you'll also be learning how to play your favorite songs and solos! I approach each student as an individual and structure their lessons according to what I determine they need, as well as what they are interested in musically. I concentrate on many different areas; ear training, theory, playing technique, improvisation, various styles of music, and, the physics of the guitar. Understanding how the instrument works is important in my opinion. My long term goal is to teach a student how they can teach themselves down the line. Understanding why you’re playing something is just important as knowing how to play it. I aim to give a student rich and well ...

With a Master's in Special Education from SCSU in New Haven and a second Master's in Psychology from University of New Haven, I combine Teaching with Counseling to pay close attention to underlying skills deficits so we can go back to the confusing areas that students need "catching up" in before learning anything more, thus avoiding anxiety, such as Math Anxiety. I build strength and confidence so that Math is easy and do-able. I also have a PhD. in Counseling Psychology and I use psychology as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Bodyworker in my home clinic to increase relaxation, but I do not use any Massage Therapy or Psychology in tutoring and teaching. My clinical laboratory medicine experience as MT(HHS) and H (ASCP) bring my Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology academics real ...
