Nadia B.

New York, NY

About Nadia

My current teaching includes music performance (piano and flute), Italian language and Alexander Technique. I have spent many years honing my skills in all of these subjects and I delight in sharing my knowledge with you and helping you to improve and reach your goals. My teaching style is patient, friendly, helpful and individualized to your needs, interests, goals and learning style.

***PLEASE NOTE: Due to my travel schedule, I can only offer once monthly in-person lessons. Online lessons are available on a weekly basis. In-person lessons once a month are ideal for those with busy sched
ules. Feel free to use the ask-a-question feature to learn more about which lesson type and frequency may be right for you!

Also, my availability throughout the week is always shifting. If you don't see the time/day you're looking for, I can probably accomodate it. Please send me a message and/or sign up for lessons and we can work out a time.

For more information about my experience and teaching in each subject, please click on the subject you are interested in to read more.

I also enjoy writing blog articles for TakeLessons as another way of sharing information. I have written articles in all of the subjects I teach. Here is a list, by category.

My 6 year old's first music lesson ever, WITHOUT a piano, was a huge hit! Nadia filled the time going through a piano book and walking through the keyboard as well as how to read the notes, and hand placement. Nadia is kind, patient, and engaging. We are thrilled we found her and looking forward to our next lesson!

Jillian V.

Harrison, NY

About Jillian

I have a Master's degree in Music Therapy, am a nationally board certified music therapist (MT-BC); performer and vocal instructor (Bachelor's in Classical Voice); certified yoga instructor and meditation guide (200+); certified and attuned Reiki master; professional freelance writer and editor.

...I find joy in a lot of places! And often I find these areas of study inform and augment each other.

Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances a
nd developmental delays as well as teens and adults with psychosocial issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, grief, ADHD, personality disorders, and more.

I incorporate my experience as a therapist into the educative setting.

As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.

I have worked professionally as an editor of scholarly writing on both the college and post-college level, as well as a professional editor of multiple dissertations, and other publications. Being a creative person, I find language to be a wonderful way to express thoughts and emotions as well as communicate deeply with others.

As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout Westchester. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized classes offered to deepen your experience.

It is a joy to offer Reiki to curious, open clients in need of energy healing. Reiki is a noninvasive energy healing technique totally separate of any religious affiliation and available to anyone. It is a difficult to describe the relaxing, soothing, and deep-healing effects of Reiki to someone who has never experienced.

Please feel free to inquire about any of my services!

*Note: If you don't see a time slot that is suitable to your needs but would like to try a session or lesson with me, feel free to register for the Flex Plan, and we will work out week-to-week times!!**

**Note: If you are interested in music therapy, please email me with a bit about yourself and your personal goals.
