Great first lesson!

Great lesson! Daniel was patient, upbeat, and gave very understandable explanations. We covered quite a bit of ground at a pace that kept it all easy to handle. Now it's time to practice!

I am a current Juilliard undergraduate with experience formally teaching beginner- intermediate level students. I welcome students of all levels who are interested in advancing their knowledge and ability to become pianistically proficient. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently while developing critical listening skills. Although practicing might usually seem laborious, I strive to help students seek the enjoyment out of the music that they want to play.

I am an origami artist and origami teacher with more than 20 years experience of teaching origami to children, adults and seniors. I live in NYC. I have been teaching origami in private and public schools as well as community centers, museums and senior centers. I work well with special needs children and adults. I use paper and materials you can find in your own home, like printing paper, napkins, dollar bills or business cards. Origami is not just another art or craft form. It is a way of acquiring multitude of skills, in a fun way . Origami engages students in learning basic math concepts like shape, size and number. In the process they learn patience and concentration sequencing and problem solving. Most importantly, people of all ages gain self esteem as they succeed in finishing a model and take pride of their work. They also find that the models they fold can serve them for practical purposes; All kind of boxes to store crayons, staples, A dish to put candies, a hand ...

Haggit is a wonderful instructor. She has a soft voice, calm demeanor and was very clear in her instructions. I had no problem completing the the tasks that she gave me to do.
Hillel International C.
We hired Haggit for a corporate event. I am so pleased that we did, Haggit's origami session was such a hit! Haggit was really easy to work with in advance when we were planning what to make during the session. The participants at the session had huge smiles on their faces and everyone left learning how to make 3 new things with origami!

Haggit was great. We had a fun time and learned some along the way. Thank you Haggit :)

I have been teaching piano for about 20 years. My specialization is classical music, both European and Russian. Usually I pay a lot of attention to the correct positioning of hands, piano technique, theory and development of the student's musical ear. I work with students from beginner to high intermediate level, starting around age 7. I would be glad to convey to you my love for great ageless music and accompany it with hard workouts to develop finger dexterity. Perhaps your hands will sometimes hurt, but I promise you that you will have fun and be proud of yourself playing Mozart, Tchaikovsky or Chopin. My native language is Russian; I teach in Russian and English.

For many years I have lived and worked in Moscow. In addition to teaching piano, I played electric piano in a cover band and accompanied the singers. I helped some well-known Russian musical groups to make musical arrangements for the piano, and these collections were published. I have also creat

Natasha is a truly outstanding piano teacher. As a child I took piano several times from various teachers and it was always difficult and boring and I never got anywhere with it. I think this is the experience that many of us have had in trying to learn an instrument. But with Natasha it was completely different. She has been my children’s teacher for about 4 months. They are 6 and 8 years old. Let me tell you, she is magic! Both my kids LOVE playing the piano now. They look forward to their lessons, they are learning to read and write music and my oldest even wrote a simple song without any prompting! She teaches in a way which breaks all the parts of playing the piano very easily and really engages the students. I would say she is the perfect combination of disciplined and caring. She has given my boys a love for music and a genuine interest in playing the piano. This is one of the best gifts I can think anyone could give a child. Our whole family loves Natasha and we are very thankful to have found her. Now I also want to take lessons with her!

Experienced clarinet teacher of 10 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of musicianship skills. I specialize in classical music, typically use Rubank books, but I am happy to help you learn whatever music you're interested in, or prepare for whatever upcoming audition or challenge you have.

Hi, I'm Elizabeth! I teach private viola, violin, and piano lessons, and I also tutor music theory and history! I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Music degree in Viola Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory, and just recently with my Master of Music degree from The Hartt School in Spring 2021. During my time at Shenandoah, I worked through the school as tutor, helping my peers through music history and theory courses. It always made me so happy seeing them improve in their classes!

I have been teaching viola, violin, and piano for four years, and it is my passion! It brings me so much joy to enrich my students' lives with music, and to watch their progress as they grow. While I don't expect the majority of my students to become professional musicians, I think it's vital that we all, as humans, learn the language of music so we can communicate and understand the world better. My biggest hope is that I make a difference in my students' lives.

"Rosita is a Godsend. One of the most engaging person I have ever met. You can automatically tell that she is actually listening to you. I had several teachers in the past and none of them asked "What I wanted to achieve in a month" I only have had a couple of lessons with her and I'm already speaking Spanish. There is still a lot that I need to learn but the way she teaches is mind-blowing. I highly recommend her."

"Really enjoying our lessons so far! Hikaru is very flexible, which has really worked out well for me. Since I live in Japan our schedules are very different, but we've been able to make it work nonetheless. She always has lesson plans put together and sends you the PDF's before each lesson. If you are curious about things not in the lesson plan, she's always happy to explore that with you as well. Most importantly, she makes you feel comfortable while you are trying to read and speak Japanese. Thank you, Hikaru!"
