Susan is not only an accomplished musician, but she is also an amazing teacher and mentor. She elevated my daughter’s musicianship and helped her find her true potential as a classical pianist. My daughter’s success as a competitive pianist is due to Susan’s instruction, encouragement, and guidance. When we started lessons with Susan, we struck gold!
John
Susan is an experienced concert pianist with world-class expertise in the instrument, yet she is also an approachable educator + coach who has done a great deal to advance my technique and interpretation. I’m glad to have found her. Advanced pianists will be pleased to find someone who can help raise their game even further, but regardless of your skill level, I don’t think you’ll regret signing up with her.

Susan was a PERFECT match for me. I really hate leaving her great knowledge. She has poured out to me her expert knowledge. Unfortunately, I am unable to continue. Susan is a teaching jewel to be cherished.

About Keith

Hi, my name is Keith and I have been involved in music from an early age. I love playing and teaching piano. I started taking lessons at the age of 9, and soon added trumpet and French Horn to my list of instrumental music lessons. I continued, through High School and College, taking music classes

great first session but I think for very young beginners it is difficult to engage. Overall a very nice experience but the location was incorrect in the system and so in the end too far for us to commit.
Elizabeth A.
Keith was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!
Ying
Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

First time playing piano? Resuming after years (decades?) of not playing the piano? No matter your age or experience, you can always learn and improve!

Pop songs, jazz ballads, classical pieces, or movie/game themes, there must be something you are interested in playing and get better!

I have close to 10 years of tutoring experience, helping children and adults embrace piano and music.

I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other, and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

For younger students, I use the Albert Young Beginner lesson book and activity book. The lesson book teaches basic piano skills at a good pace for young beginners, and the activity book reiterates what the lesson book teaches, but in different fun ways. For older students, I use the Bastien series of Piano instruction for my piano lessons. I use the Lesson book for teaching basic playing skills, the Theory book for basic theory. In addition to this, I like to eventually include A Dozen A Day exercise books and Hannon finger exercises, scales, and arpeggios. I feel this method of teaching will lead to well-rounded, quick improvement!

About Kathleen

After playing the flute and piano on my own for seven years, I began my classical music education at the age of sixteen with international soloist Jun Kubo. Only a year and a half after I began my studies with Jun Kubo, I was accepted into The College of New Jersey for a Bachelor's program in Music

My lessons are based on my decades of experiences and education from Berklee College of Music that I graduated with a scholarship as Summa Cum Laude, and the Bachelor of Music from Kunitachi College of Music in Tokyo, Japan in addition to middle school & high school music instruction license.

I try to build a good relationship with my students so they can rely on me to develop their skills and to bloom their talents.
Music lessons should be fun. Something to look forward to. Everyone has different expectations towards music lessons and that's what I try to explore and expand depending on each student's needs and goals so they can always enjoy and grow :)

About Yoshie

Teaching is such a rewarding job! It makes me happy and proud when my students accomplish things such as completing books, practicing a lot, etc. One of my students who's been with me for 3 years has been practicing every day since week 1 when he was 4 years old. In the beginning, we used to have

We have tried 3 different teachers for my nephew to learn a new hobby until we found Yoshie. She somehow managed to keep this crazy kid interested in piano with her entertaining homeworks and colorful eye candy quizes. Even I am interested to learn now! With this virus going on, my nephew is finally busy and we have some time to relax. Thank you Yoshie!!!
