My lessons are geared toward the individual student. I spend the first lesson getting to know the student's strengths and weaknesses, history, hobbies, and general feelings about music. This helps me to better understand what the student (or parent) is hoping to gain from taking piano lessons. My lessons are meant to produce the best possible success, and most importantly, a great time and a permanent love of music.

About Grace

I started piano lessons at the age of 3 and continued through middle school. I played the flute in the high school band and continued to pursue my love of music in college where I joined the Piano Ensemble and received a degree in Music from DePaul University. I graduated in 2015 with high honors

My 5-year old twins had their first lesson with Grace today. She was on time, got right to work, and connected with them both really well (back to back lessons). She was professional with us, and had both girls giggling at points in their lesson. They loved her and excited to practice, which is all we could ask for. We look forward to seeing her next week!

The teacher seems like she’s always in a hurry. She leaves a few minutes before it ends. She’s friendly but doesn’t make real conversation with the parent to update about my child’s progress. Knowledgeable though coz my daughter learned fast. She. Would’ve been perfect if she had a great personality

Grace was very sweet and great with my 7 year old daughter.

Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

Terry is an amazing and patient instructor. Every week she works with me to improve my technique, and learn the love for music. To learn to read music and more. Thank you Terry for your patience this is a great experience for me, being 33 hasn’t stopped me from learning the piano and Terry is very patient with me.

She doing a wonderful job!!!!!!
Valentina M.
My daughters had their first piano lesson today with Terri. I can honestly say that I’ve never met anyone so patient and sweet natured and professional like Terri. The first time I spoke to her on the phone reflected her nature in person. Shes very knowledgeable with the piano music. She knows how to level herself with my 7 year old and specially with my know it all 5 year old. After the lessons she updated me with their progress and commented on my kids strengths and weaknesses. She just didn’t talk to me as her client but she talked to me like a friend. Her smile radiated through the music she teaches. We all loved her.

So you want to learn piano! I have been playing since I was 7 years old, so pretty much all of my life! I started off learning classical piano, and later learned how to play popular, RnB, gospel, and jazz styles.

I love to teach and help people learn! Music is such amazing gift, and playing piano can help to open up your ears and your heart to your musical potential. I am here, not just to help you learn technical piano skills, but to help you connect to the music you hear. That is where the joy is at 💛

"My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson."

"I have literally looked for years for the right trumpet teacher for my 12 year old son. JQ is a treasure. He challenges the student appropriately but is also gentle and understanding about the realities of life for a 12 year old in NYC. Cannot recommend him highly enough. Very skilled teacher, performer, and totally on point with showing up, planning ahead, etc."

"I had a lesson with Fawn two days ago and I thought she seemed like she probably knew what she was doing, since I'd done some research - though I didn't expect her to at least quadruple my singing ability within 10 minutes. (That's not an exaggeration).

So, if you're on this page, and you're looking for a vocal coach, you have found the right one! THIS is the girl! Fawn is a literal genius, every question in my session she answered, it made sense, and she was able to talk the talk, walk the walk and prove what she said with MY voice.

I'm using these exercises Fawn has given me, and from 1 hour of her time, my confidence has grown hugely. I'll definitely be going back...maybe for life!

Thinking about it, she might actually be a magical genie!"

"Update after completing 15 lessons. I'm still rocking out! Well, I have gone through the following stages during the last 4 months: (1) Overcome shyness in singing - Eric always makes me feel comfortable singing so I don't have to worry about how I sound or how I look (yes, some singing technique requires to make funny face!) (2) Improve voice range - Eric helps me to hit high notes without straining through his voice training methods. (3) Increase confidence - Eric always compliments my efforts and provides positive feedback. (4) Challenge new songs - Eric always encourages me to try something new/different. (5) Slump (For the last few weeks, I sounded so terrible at singing the songs that I picked and started losing confidence.) - Eric always relates to the problems that I encounter in singing, and he speaks to me from his own singing experiences. (6) Have fun singing - Eric always reminds me singing is fun! I feel so much better after yesterday's lesson, and I am ready to enjoy singing again. Eric is an amazing teacher, and I will continue taking his singing lessons! Try his lesson. I guarantee you will love it!!"

"Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all."
