Trina G.

New Hyde Park, NY

Fun, engaging, personalized, and productive, lessons with me are enjoyable and highly effective. As a professional piano teacher of 16 years and a classically trained pianist, teaching piano is my passion. I want the love of music, the feeling of accomplishment, and the ineffable joy of learning to play piano to be the reason my students want to practice piano and attend lessons.

The rapport between student and teacher is one of the most important factors of your First Class lessons. I consider it a priority that each student feel comfortable with me, feel at-home in my studio, enjoy their lessons, and develop a love and knowledge of music that will last a lifetime.

New concepts and homework/ practice assignments are explained and documented in easy-to-understand ways. Proper technique is stressed regardless of experience level or age. Lessons also include music theory and ear-training in addition to sight-reading.

Students have the opportunity to showcase their talent ...

About Trina

I'm a friendly, patient, enthusiastic, experienced teacher, joyfully instructing piano professionally since 1999. Music transcends words, and I have a deep understanding of music/ piano, both personal and experiential which I truly enjoy sharing with my students. I draw from my love of music and my own experience as a pianist, piano student, and piano teacher to motivate and inspire my students.

A classically-trained pianist, I've been taking piano lessons since age 6 and playing "by ear" from early childhood. I continued to study piano throughout elementary school, high school, and colleg
e where I studied piano, music history, music theory, and psychology.
I studied and completed fieldwork and internships in music therapy and psychology, and have extensive experience working with students with special needs.
In graduate school, I studied piano and music theory under David Holzman, Grammy-nominated pianist and lecturer.

Fun, engaging, personalized, and productive, each lesson is both enjoyable and effective. I want the love of music and the joy it brings to be the reason my students want to practice piano and attend lessons. The rapport between student and teacher is one of the most important factors of your lessons. I consider it a priority that each student feel comfortable with me, feel at-home in my studio, enjoy their lessons, and develop a love and knowledge of music that will last a lifetime. Proper technique is stressed regardless of experience level or age.

I hold an annual Student Piano Recital in May/ June for all my private students and their families.

My 5 and 8 years old sons have been learning piano from Ms.Trina almost a year. I was amazed at Ms. Trina's unending patience. I cannot believe I can find a piano teacher with good patience dealing with my sons. My 5 year old son was always lacking confidence to do every single thing, but through Ms. Trina's encouragement, he has gain confidence and he actually feels proud of himself when he plays something well. My 8 years old son likes to complain every single things, but he was so happy with Ms. Trina and he even told me Ms. Trina is the best teacher. Ms. Trina also customized each lesson according to my sons' needs. She is creative and fun approach to work totally engaged my sons. She is such an amazing and one of a kind teacher- her love for her work is apparent in her commitment to her students.

Glafkos K.

Flushing, NY

I've been teaching piano for over 20 years and I remain eager to share music with others, help them explore it for themselves and receive It's many benefits.
I try to find the best approach for each one of my students depending on their interests,and I usually incorporate various techniques,including reading,improvisation,memorization and analysis of music.I place emphasis on methods of practicing that yield the best results and best use of practice time.
I always feel that learning music should be a fun and rewarding experience and I strongly feel that the process of learning music is as important, if not more than the end result.

About Glafkos

I'm a professional musician and teacher with over 20 years of experience.I feel that music is a beautiful thing in our world,magical at times and can be incredibly exciting,fun and rewarding.A universal language and a powerful tool, that can help us connect with ourselves and each other.
I always enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for music with students and help them discover what it can do for them.
I strongly feel that learning music at any level should be fun,and that the process of learning is most important and essentially the same as the end result.

In my lessons I strive towards a balan
ce between discipline and creativity, and look for a holistic approach to learning.I explore sight-reading,ear-training, technique,memorization,as well as improvisation which I found to be a powerful learning tool and a fun way to experience music from the beginning.I encourage classical music ,improvisation techniques as well as pieces that the student may have special connections to.I've learned that in general every one learns in his or her own unique way, and I see my job as a teacher to find the best approach for each of my students and guide him or her towards what they are naturally inclined to.

Gregory H.

Astoria, NY

The ultimate instrument: Learn the notes, how to read, and how to play the songs you want to play. For young students, a strong foundation comes first for unlimited capabilities in the future.

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become
so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill Grounds, The Rialto, and The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta and Radio City Music Hall, 54 Below, The Jazz Standard, Bowery Ballroom, Shapeshifter and Flushing Town Hall in New York, my fire for wanting to develop my teaching did also. I was always thinking back to what my old teachers gave me, inspiration. I then understood that inspiration is the key to success in life.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be something the student looks forward to every week. We will work through common method books and learn material that the student has an interest in. For example, some students want to learn to play high notes, a popular song, improvise, or write their own songs. I am a laid back guy, but I do expect effort in the lessons and at home. I believe whatever you put into music is what you get out of it, and I will inspire and motivate the student to get as much out of the lessons as they can. Students will create, with my advisement, and update short term and long term goals every few months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard or Piano and Music Stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should provide their instrument, instrument care products (valve oil), method books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and classical music. I use many common methods depending on how the student tends to learn the best, and will even combine different methods if the student requires it.

About Nino

I began studying piano and music theory when I was 5. My father was an accomplished musician (classical and folklore) who played great role in my accomplishment as a pianist and teacher

While studying in Music College, I took part in various festivals and competitions. I performed several piano concertos with symphonic orchestra. Some of them are: Mozart Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor, Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No 2 in G minor, Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor Op 54 pt. Parallel with my studies in College I gave piano lessons in classical music. I accomplished my studies with honors.
I traveled and taught music in different countries: United Kingdom, Central and Eastern Europe which helped me gain great experience how to teach students with different background

I got my MA from the Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA). My studies were focused on education administration and management. This helped me manage class in most efficient and effective way , plan lessons and develop curricula.

I would eagerly take students from all age groups and backgrounds and involve them in the most exciting process of self accomplishment.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages 5 and up with different abilities, needs and requirements and develop plans to fit each individual. I have very friendly atmosphere in the class. I design certain games for children to enable them to better understand music language, theory and develop practical skills. I spend much time on ear training, rhythm development, music structure, music theory and performance.

In a 3 month period students will be able to understand different scales, basics of music theory and performance and will be able to perform classical pieces e.g. Bach’s inventions, Mozart’s and Beethoven’s little sonatas for piano etc

Nino is a fabulous teacher. Her ability to teach and help my daughter understand classical music as well as appreciate it is amazing. Nino has a wonderful gift that she shares with her students. My daughter had two other piano teachers when she was younger but was able to learn with Nino. Nino has a lot of patience and stands behind her work. We are so thankful to Nino. My daughter loves playing piano so much that she is even thinking about majoring in it. Thank you Nino for being such a wonderful teacher!

I have been taking lessons with Niño for about 6 months.
Not only has it been a great learning experience but also a very enjoyable one. Each lesson is focused to my needs, technical and otherwise and I come away with a good feeling of accomplishment.
My piano playing is progressing and no doubt will continue to progress with Niño as my teacher. She is highly recommended.

Elisabetta F.

Flushing, NY

About Elisabetta

Originally from Rome, Italy, Elisabetta immersed herself in musical and classical studies since an early age. Traveling with her family, she had the opportunity to experience the most prestigious music productions in Europe and the United States. The choice to be an active part of the music world as a professional was inevitable and only natural.
She attained a Master’s Degree in Piano Performance and Music Teaching, from the Conservatory of Music Refice, Italy.
She developed a long career teaching music, providing music education instruction, encompassing practice of an instrument, histor
y of music, and music theory. She taught classes with approximately twenty-five students, maintaining a sharp, consistent focus on correlating music to academics.
Through instrument instruction (piano, recorder, and key board) she was successful in developing skills in students such as discipline and concentration. The experience of practicing and producing beautiful music enhanced the self esteem of even the most difficult pupils, improving their achievements also in mathematics, science, language arts and other academic subjects.
While teaching, Elisabetta never stopped performing for various Cultural Associations in Solo Concerts and Chamber Music.
In New York for family and business reasons since 1999, Elisabetta continued her successful teaching career throughout these years, giving lessons to children and adults alike. Some of her students came from the Martha Graham School of Modern Dance, The Neighborhood Playhouse and Opera Singers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are pleasant, interesting and stimulating. I have the gift to make things easier. Step by step you go a long way, and become eager to go further. You will look at challenges as just bigger rewards.
I was taught by very accomplished, intimidating Artists and Maestros… extremely demanding people. If you ever feel discouraged or a little doubtful about your abilities… believe me, I KNOW where you are coming from!
We’ll walk together towards a priceless treasure that will be with you for life. In a few months, hearing something beautiful in the air, you will be able to say “I can play that!”
