 It's NEVER too late to start learning piano.

I focus on the fundamentals (technique, sightreading, playing by ear) to prepare all my students to tackle any pieces they want, whether it's classical, pop, jazz, ragtime.

About Eric

I enjoy sharing my love of music by helping others embark on their musical journeys. I am a strong supporter of using a combination of aural training and sightreading to boost musicality and finesse. In the past 6 years, I have taught students of all ages, ranging from children to seniors. You

Jon deeply connects with the student. He adjusts the lessons accordingly to learning needs. He finds what makes one happy and also, incorporates it in lessons to awaken even more interest. My 12 year old is very happy to be taught by Jon.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I am a classical pianist and pedagogue with over 14 years of teaching experience and a doctoral degree in piano performance and pedagogy.

I work with students of various ages and levels. Some of my primary goals as a teacher are to help students develop a deeper love and appreciation for music and music making, as well as a greater learning autonomy.

Depending on student's personal goals and progress, I will encourage participation in studio classes, recitals, competitions and/or other performance opportunities. I offer lessons in English, Russian, and Romanian.

About Maria

Maria holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from the Frost School of Music (University of Miami), as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees in piano performance from Rowan University and Indiana University - Bloomington. She has been heard as a soloist and c

Music is a language. Having played piano for 20+ years, I can attest to the unique advantages of being "fluent" in piano, as well as the impact your music can have on others. I have worked with kids and adults from all backgrounds and walks of life, which is why each of my lesson plans is tailored to the individual student. In general, beginners will focus on equal parts music theory (learning how to read) and music performance (learning how to play); intermediate students can provide their background and we will adjust focus accordingly.

I look forward to meeting you and getting started!!!

About Sabrina

Whether it's through language performance, music, or studio work, I am an artist at my core. I have worked with people of all ages and from all walks of life, which has allowed me to share my experience with others who hope to expand their own passions and skill sets. A little bit about me...

I’m a novice at playing piano and decided to take some lessons with Ms. Singh to improve my skills. She is extremely talented at teaching and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! Highly recommend her to anyone interested in improving their skills, regardless of their experience level.

Learn Classical Piano or Video Game and Anime Music!

It is my goal to develop in each of my students a comprehensive understanding of music which enables them to play the piano with utmost enjoyment and musicality. Quality piano instruction is achieved through focused private lessons. Although an emphasis is placed on classical repertoire, the student's curriculum is always tailored to the student's interests and goals. I find encouragement is absolutely necessary but students must try their best. My teaching style consists of a fun, relaxed environment where students can feel like they can express themselves fully and learn much at the same time. Mastery at the piano is so much more than learning to press the right keys at the right time. Music is about expressing and sharing human emotions and feelings that are unspoken and is something we can all be touched by.

About Sabrina

I've been banging on the piano since I was 3, but piano became more structured when I turned 7 and I've loved piano so much since then! I've been classically trained in the US and then later in Italy so all together I have 19 years piano playing experience. My favorite genre is Modern Japanese Cl

"Anahit is an amazing piano instructor. She empowers her students to do their best. She has very extensive repertoire that almost seems endless. I would recommend her to anyone of any age that wants to learn how to play the piano. She teaches from the basics to very advanced levels. She is also very comitted to her job, and rarely misses lessons. Her lessons are very profession and private."

"Emil was the teacher I was looking for. I have tried to learn piano on my own for a while now, but most of the time it became overwhelming. I wasn't sure I was going in the right direction, or if I was learning what I should know in the right order. So far, what Emil had done for me was to take what I've known already and add much more to it. He also has started to correct some bad habits I became accustomed to, which I would have never picked up on my own.He's very knowledgeable, and ties in music theory during the lesson. He's down to earth, throws in some jokes to lighten the mood, and create an enjoyable learning experience."
