About reut
Hello there!

I am a trombonist and teacher, with many years of experience teaching Hebrew as well as music.

As a music teacher I have worked with children starting from private lessons to young children beginning to learn, up to master classes in universities worldwide. I love teaching, and I feel confident teaching trombone and trumpet up to advanced level. For piano, I would prefer to stay with beginners and young ones only :) - but I promise you they will have a wonderful experience (and yes, I do have 8 years of piano studies under my belt).

As a Hebrew teacher, I teach both Hebrew reading and pronunciation and modern conversational Hebrew. My professional experience includes teaching at Golda Och Academy in West Orange, B'nai Abraham in Livingston, Central Synagogue in Manhattan and more, as well as many private lessons. In
the schools I provided classroom instruction, private and group tutoring and adult education as well as private instruction for the faculty.

Reut is an excellent teacher. She evaluated my current state, helped me set reasonable goals, and coaxed better playing from me than I thought I was capable of. I can't wait for my next lesson, and progressing.

About Lella
I studied Musicology and Piano Performance at the Shandong Normal University School of Music, where I graduated with my BA in 2005. I taught music and established a band at a property management institute while a student there, and established my own practice after I graduated. I came to the United States in 2013, where I have continued to play piano and have joined a local band. I am happy to continue sharing my love of music with my students here.

I began tutoring Mandarin in January 2015. As a native speaker, I can guide you to a very high level, and help you learn to speak with a proper Chinese accent.

Please note: Online classes are available for Mandarin Chinese only. Piano lessons are only available in person.

5 stars' teacher

We just had our first lesson and we hit a few bumps but my daughter has never had music instruction before so we're giving it another go next week to see if things go more smoothly. 3 stars above says meets expectations, and though it didn't, I just hesitate to give someone 2 stars based on one lesson.
Here are some details from class:
My daughter (K) just turned 5 but is pretty mature for her age and has expressed an interest in learning the piano so we signed up for individual lessons with Lella. At the start of class I mentioned again (I had noted it at booking time as well) that K has had zero experience with music instruction. Immediately Lella sat with K on the piano bench and started explaining treble clef sign, bass clef sign and what hands they relate to. Lella also has a thick accent as I was trying to follow along with her explanations with a little difficulty. She even asked if K speaks Chinese and I said "no" so she said "you're Indian right?" My daughter would look around from time to time while Lella was explaining at which point Lella would just keep seeing "Pay attention sweetie!" Then she asked my daughter to write the numbers 1-5 in a book and when she said she didn't know how to write the number 2, Lella laughed and said "you know, but you forgot right" so I spoke up and explained "no she has not been taught to write her numbers yet, but she can read/recognize them" to which Lella seemed very surprised, so I felt the need to say, "she's still in preschool. But if you write them she'll be able to tell you what they are." So then Lella switched to counts, explaining about the values of different notes. She asked my daughter if she had questions, to which my daughter said "I think I understand what you're saying, if it's just a circle that means four, but if it's a circle with a line..." And before she could finish her thought Lella said "no that's not a line, it's a stem". At another point when Lella asked if she had any questions, my daughter slowly said "yes... what's velour?" And when Lella looked confused I had to step in and explain that Lella was saying "value", the amount of counts for a note. By the end of the half hour lesson, Lella had reached her explanation of middle C, which she described to my daughter saying "this is middle C because it's in the middle, there are two black keys, then on the left is C. Can you find another one?" When K didn't respond right away, she repeated herself, and again another time. So I said "she really has had no previous music experience, I think you need to even explain to her that those are called keys, like there are black keys, white keys..." And Lella just looked at me confused.
At the end of the lesson I agreed to buy the theory book so we can practice that at home, and Lella asked if I can sit in on the next lesson to help explain things to my daughter, because she "doesn't really focus". I agreed to sit in on the lesson, for my own benefit so I can help her with HW since I also don't have music experience. But I also mentioned to Lella that her accent is quite strong and I think my daughter was having trouble understanding her, and Lella seemed surprised by that comment.
I don't know... it says on Lella's profile that she has worked with young kids but I can't really see how the class was any different from how she would teach me, an adult with no prior music experience.
Oh! I forgot to mention something so basic - when we met Lella she thought I was someone else so I re-introduced myself and introduced my daughter. Then as we were saying goodbye at the end of class I realized Lella had never introduced herself to my daughter, so I asked "oh, what would you like K to call you, Ms. Li, or Lella? Ms. Lella?" She said Lella was fine so I turned to K and said "Tell Lella bye K." It just hit me, I mean that's something about creating a relationship with a young student. Speaking to them directly, making that connection. Lella was really smiley which gave the impression she was friendly but she never really made a connection with K who is the student, not me.

Lella quickly recognized what I needed to practice and brought me a great book that helped me get back to where I was very quickly.

About Luke
I am deeply passionate about sharing knowledge with others and have been lucky to be teaching my entire adult life. There are so many enriching experiences available to us when we learn more about the world.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences. When I teach I like to understand where my students are coming from, what really inspires them, and help them to enjoy and love what they want to learn. For me, learning is always fun, so whether you like to study or you are having trouble motivating yourself to concentrate, together we will discover the joy and fun in what you are studying.

Martin was a former student of mine, and I can honestly say I’ve never met anyone who had such a love and joy of learning and making discoveries. His personality is open and warm, and I imagine anyone lucky enough to study with him would benefit immensely. His enthusiasm is contagious and his energy knows no limits!

Martin is a great instructor. He truly cares about his students and his friendliness allows students to ask any questions in mind without being afraid of getting wrong or asking an irrelevant question. He is very knowledgeable in his fields of expertise and is a person who can motivate your self-development. He is perhaps the most positive and enthusiastic person I have ever met.

About Marianela
I came to New York to accomplish a long-standing ambition: To become a professional pianist and a complete musician working as a teacher and a performer. Now that I have accomplished my goals, I would like to share my knowledge with my students and make them feel the music as deeply as I feel it!

My teaching philosophy is to provide a comprehensive music instruction that is not only about notes and rhythm, but also about connecting performance with theory, technique, collaboration, self-reflection and creativity from an early age. One of the key elements to reinforce the work that I do with my students is to help them notice the possibilities within a piece, which is when the student determines what the piece is “telling them”, what it “looks like”, how could it be improved, and what other instruments they are “hearing.”

My work experie
nce includes fifteen years as a piano soloist, accompanist, and instructor. I teach in group and individual settings in Spanish and English to ages 3 – adult and organize classical and contemporary repertory to teach and present in concerts. In my present position I use improvisation exercises to teach students music concepts such as rhythm and dynamics, and graphic and listening aids to teach about orchestral instruments. I share with parents their children’s progress and also offer advice that can help my students when they practice.

Contact me and let's have a conversation about your goals and what you need to accomplish them. Thank you!

At first I was skeptical about taking lessons, I did not think that at almost 40 years old, that I could learn to play the piano. BUT!!! Marianela made the lesson so easy and fun to understand that by the end of our lesson I was playing the piece she prepared for me almost all by myself. I can't wait for our next lesson to see what she has in store for me. I am eager to learn and know that I found the perfect teacher. I will continue to take lessons from Marianela hopefully for a long time. THANK YOU MARIANELA. You are a GEM... Anyone looking to start learning how to play the piano PLEASE give Marianela a chance to teach you.
