About Nino

I began studying piano and music theory when I was 5. My father was an accomplished musician (classical and folklore) who played great role in my accomplishment as a pianist and teacher

While studying in Music College, I took part in various festivals and competitions. I performed several piano concertos with symphonic orchestra. Some of them are: Mozart Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor, Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No 2 in G minor, Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor Op 54 pt. Parallel with my studies in College I gave piano lessons in classical music. I accomplished my studies with honors.
I traveled and taught music in different countries: United Kingdom, Central and Eastern Europe which helped me gain great experience how to teach students with different background

I got my MA from the Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA). My studies were focused on education administration and management. This helped me manage class in most efficient and effective way , plan lessons and develop curricula.

I would eagerly take students from all age groups and backgrounds and involve them in the most exciting process of self accomplishment.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages 5 and up with different abilities, needs and requirements and develop plans to fit each individual. I have very friendly atmosphere in the class. I design certain games for children to enable them to better understand music language, theory and develop practical skills. I spend much time on ear training, rhythm development, music structure, music theory and performance.

In a 3 month period students will be able to understand different scales, basics of music theory and performance and will be able to perform classical pieces e.g. Bach’s inventions, Mozart’s and Beethoven’s little sonatas for piano etc

*** Studio Equipment ***
piano is a digital yamaha...88 keys, weighted
one room...space for parent to sit and listen

Learned so much with only one lesson a week!

Nino is a fabulous teacher. Her ability to teach and help my daughter understand classical music as well as appreciate it is amazing. Nino has a wonderful gift that she shares with her students. My daughter had two other piano teachers when she was younger but was able to learn with Nino. Nino has a lot of patience and stands behind her work. We are so thankful to Nino. My daughter loves playing piano so much that she is even thinking about majoring in it. Thank you Nino for being such a wonderful teacher!

Excellent teacher

I have been taking lessons with Niño for about 6 months.
Not only has it been a great learning experience but also a very enjoyable one. Each lesson is focused to my needs, technical and otherwise and I come away with a good feeling of accomplishment.
My piano playing is progressing and no doubt will continue to progress with Niño as my teacher. She is highly recommended.

Elisabetta F.

Flushing, NY

About Elisabetta

Originally from Rome, Italy, Elisabetta immersed herself in musical and classical studies since an early age. Traveling with her family, she had the opportunity to experience the most prestigious music productions in Europe and the United States. The choice to be an active part of the music world as a professional was inevitable and only natural.
She attained a Master’s Degree in Piano Performance and Music Teaching, from the Conservatory of Music Refice, Italy.
She developed a long career teaching music, providing music education instruction, encompassing practice of an instrument, histor
y of music, and music theory. She taught classes with approximately twenty-five students, maintaining a sharp, consistent focus on correlating music to academics.
Through instrument instruction (piano, recorder, and key board) she was successful in developing skills in students such as discipline and concentration. The experience of practicing and producing beautiful music enhanced the self esteem of even the most difficult pupils, improving their achievements also in mathematics, science, language arts and other academic subjects.
While teaching, Elisabetta never stopped performing for various Cultural Associations in Solo Concerts and Chamber Music.
In New York for family and business reasons since 1999, Elisabetta continued her successful teaching career throughout these years, giving lessons to children and adults alike. Some of her students came from the Martha Graham School of Modern Dance, The Neighborhood Playhouse and Opera Singers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are pleasant, interesting and stimulating. I have the gift to make things easier. Step by step you go a long way, and become eager to go further. You will look at challenges as just bigger rewards.
I was taught by very accomplished, intimidating Artists and Maestros… extremely demanding people. If you ever feel discouraged or a little doubtful about your abilities… believe me, I KNOW where you are coming from!
We’ll walk together towards a priceless treasure that will be with you for life. In a few months, hearing something beautiful in the air, you will be able to say “I can play that!”

She is wonderful! Ms. Elisabetta is very patient with both Pedro and Angela, and can adapt her style to their different ages and very different personalities. She has the patience of a saint, and the children are already picking up concepts, after only 3 lessons! Bravissima!

Erica Q.

Brooklyn, NY

I use the Bastien books to teach sight reading, music theory and to start building the student's classical repertoire. I also encourage playing by ear to development of great technique and enjoyment of playing music.

I can teach you to memorize simple classical pieces, sight read and explore music theory. I specialize in helping seasoned musicians who want to get some foundations in piano as well as children.

About Erica

I'm a multi-intrumentalist, songwriter, and singer. I've toured internationally performing my original music as well as playing multiple instruments in bands. I produce and record music that can be heard in film and television. I teach several instruments and genres of music and take your tastes and learning style into utmost consideration. I always begin with practical exercises to develop technique, then we can focus on playing the music you love.

To vocal students I teach exercises that develop technique and allows you to explore your voice. I will help you learn to make sounds you love
. Singing is created by breath and muscles which we have full access to. Anyone can learn with proper focus, care and practice. I can also help you with recording and microphone technique as this is my area of expertise!

For violin, viola and cello students, I teach a combination the Suzuki Method (learning through ear training) and traditional theory and sight reading. We can also explore fiddling, blues and the foundations of jazz and rock improvisation if you're interested.

For guitar students, you can choose the songs you learn or let me recommend ones appropriate for your skill level. We can incorporate music theory, classical repertoire and sight reading into the process in degrees of your choosing. We can also explore singing while playing, songwriting and recording technique when you feel ready.

I also teach beginner piano, which I recommend for anyone who wants to better understand the mechanics of music. We learn basic classical compositions, exercises, theory, and any song you choose.

Who knows what creativity learning music will inspire? You may eventually write songs and want to explore recording them. Our lessons are held in a top of the line pro-tools recording studio where you can learn recording technique from me at any point.

I'm a classically trained violinist as well as a pop musician. I am currently playing in a chamber group, Hudson River Stings, and produce and perform electronic pop music. My musical training includes private lessons with some fantastic musicians such as Raz Kennedy, Jennifer Turner, Bob Corff and Matte Henderson, as well as Jazz and vocal studies at S.U.N.Y. New Paltz, San Francisco City College, and Los Angeles City College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher who will give you a push when you need it! Music is joyful above all else and sometimes it's incredibly satisfying to work hard. We can talk candidly about your musical goals to determine how rigorously or casually we want to approach your lessons and practice schedule.

*** Studio Equipment ***
P.A. and vocal microphones, acoustic, electric and bass guitars, violin, cello, midi piano and pro-tools studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my instrument and extra sheet music beyond the lesson books. I expect the student to have an instrument, metronome, and lesson book (Suzuki books and CD for violin, viola and cello, Hal Leonard for guitar and bass, James Bastien for piano. I provide sheet music and a practice CD for my voice students.)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in combination lessons such as guitar and voice lessons with a focus on songwriting. I can also help violinists who wants to transfer their knowledge of theory to guitar or piano and vice versa. We can incorporate recording techniques into any lesson.

My child has been taking piano lessons with Matthew for over five years (pre-teen to teen). I myself took a few lessons with Matthew, until my schedule no longer allowed for the continuation of those lessons. He is extremely talented and patient. Most importantly, he is capable of teaching people to play a wide variety of piano music. Not everyone can teach what they know. I highly recommend Matthew as an instructor for you or your family.

He is so kind and considerate to all that he teaches. Matthew is a drama student of the Performing Arts and is beyond incredible in his acting roles. His singing is stunning. When it comes to lessons, Matthew is the only person that I would bring my son too.

Meagan F.

Rego Park, NY

My goal is to make music fun for all of my students. I use scales (mostly pentatonic/5 note for beginners) as a warm up and use Bastien Piano Basics for teaching. This incorporates fun pictures and some silly lyrics to keep the attention of younger students (up to 4th grade). I encourage my students to sing along with finger numbers, note names, or lyrics. I feel this helps with sight reading abilities and tonal recognition. I also incorporate a little bit of music theory as soon as the student is capable of grasping it. Once the first two levels of this curriculum are mastered, we would move on to others; Alfred is usually my first choice but it varies depending on the student. Either way, it's my desire for my students to be well rounded musicians (skill, technique, theory) while having fun making music!

About Meagan

I absolutely love working with students to instill and encourage confidence and the joy of music. I graduated from school with a degree in Vocal Performance & Theater Performance. Not only have I performed in numerous musicals and stage productions, I've been able to sing solo, and in both small and large ensembles in nearly every state in the US and all over the world (including Austria, Germany, Canada, and Costa Rica). I have since moved on from performing because I love sharing my passion and enthusiasm for voice with my students! I have been teaching voice since my senior year of high sch
ool. After some pedagogy training in college, I moved on to teach several students out of my home studio in Baltimore and now in New York. I incorporate aspects of classical and contemporary music to make learning both beneficial and fun! I love making music and I hope to share the joy of singing with each student.
