View Full Profile

I am a classically trained pianist with five completed degrees in Piano Performance from Germany and the US.

About Anastasia
After Anastasia’s Carnegie Hall Debut in 2006, the New York Concert Review wrote: "For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I'm happy to report that from the first note she touched at her Weill Hall recital, Anastasia S. was a genuine pleasure to listen to. Every piece, every measure, every note - no matter how complex the texture, no matter how many strands of melody and accompaniment - was wrapped in a halo of golden tone..."

Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Anastasia S. gave her first solo recital at the age of eleven. Ms. S. is a graduate of the Hochschule für Musik Würzburg, Germany, and holds a Master’s and a Doctorate degrees from The Hartt School at the University of Hartford.

In 2003 Anastasia received
First Prize in the 14th International Piano Competition for Young Pianists in Rome, Italy, and was awarded a Special Prize. In year 2006 Ms. S. won the Puigcerda International Piano Competition in Spain. In the same year she recorded the complete works for piano and orchestra by Balakirev with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra for NAXOS records. In 2008 Ms. S. received the “Outstanding Award”, which granted her a return engagement to give a second solo recital at Carnegie Hall in New York City. In 2010 Anastasia was awarded a Special Prize for the best interpretation of French composition at the International Piano Competition “Parnassos” in Mexico. Her solo recital in 2008 at the Myra Hess Concert Series in Chicago was broadcast live on WFMT Radio, in Internet, and on the TV-Station “Channel 25“; Anastasia was invited to play there again in 2011. Her career continues with numerous appearances as a soloist both in concertos with orchestra, in solo recitals, and in chamber music concerts in Ukraine, Germany, Macedonia, Italy, Switzerland, France, Russia, USA, and Japan. Anastasia’s recent engagements included a performance at the Bolshoi Hall of Moscow Conservatory as well as solo appearances with orchestras in the United States and Germany featuring concerti by Prokofieff, Mozart, Grieg, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, and Stravinsky. In 2014 her new CD "Music of Russian-Jewish composers for oboe and piano" was released. Currently, Anastasia is working on her two new solo CD's for Centaur Records.

In 2013, Anastasia was granted the Extraordinary Abilities in the Arts permanent US residence, as one of a small percentage of those who have risen to the top in their field of endeavor. Anastasia served as an Adjunct Faculty in Piano and Chamber Music at the Hartt School, and is currently on faculty of the New England Conservatory in Boston.

I offer scholarships for advanced level students upon request.

As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back.

I enjoy working with most of my students, especially those who practice hard. I find all students unique and they response differently to my requests or questions. I feel that very often I need to react spontaneously to their responses. For the beginners I mainly focus on reading musical notes and learning correct rhythmic values. With beginners who haven’t played the piano at all I teach finger exercises written finger numbers only. Then I use Piano Adventures theory, lesson, technique and artistry, performance, and popular music books. Although Alfred’s and Bastien’s methods are well known, I prefer Piano Adventures because they introduce the coordination of right and left hand in more progressive manner. At the beginning the following will be covered.
• Postures at the piano, finger numbers, high and low on the keyboard
• Music alphabet, Intervals
• Musical form, Dynamic marks
• Staff; line notes, space notes
• Time signature, accent mark, legato, staccato
• Basic chords ...

I was born and raised in S. Korea. I studied piano performance at Cleveland Institute of Music and University of Iowa and hold DMA in piano performance and pedagogy from University of Iowa. Other than music I hold BS in Computer Science from State University of New York, Albany.

I performed in major cities in Korea, the US and Europe such as Seoul, Paris, Vienna, Cleveland and Philadelphia. I participated in The Joanna Hodges International Piano Competition during my last year at University of Iowa and was mentioned by the judges as a technically very good pianist. For additional studies I participated in Aspen Music School and Music Festival, Claude Elffere's Master
Class (Paris, France), Mozarteum Summer School and Music Festival (Salzburg, Austria) and Vienna Music Seminar (Vienna, Austria). I was awarded scholarship when I attended Cleveland Inctitute of Music and Aspen Music School.

Previously I was a rehearsal pianist of operas, II pagliacci by Leoncavallo with Daegu Opera, Snatched by the Gods and Broken Strings by Param Vir with University of Iowa Theatre department, and contemporary operas based on the works by Francesca Cavalli with Temple University Opera. Other than operas I worked with Missoula Children’s Theatre for the performance of Aladdin. As a collaborative pianist I performed in numerous concerts and performed in master classes of Joseph Silverstein, Steven Isserlis, Julliard Quartet, Isaac Stern and Richard Stoltzman.

We will learn to read music, play in your favorite style from pop and jazz to classical music, and we will have fun!

About Inna
Hello, and thank you for your interest!

My name is Inna, I'm a jazz and world vocalist, pianist and composer.

I come from family of musicians, and I have started exploring music since the age of 5. In addition to my classical studies in Russia, I won the only full tuition scholarship to study in famous Berklee College of Music in the competition that took place during Berklee Asia Scholarship Tour in 2010.

In Berklee I was deeply influenced and moved by Eastern European and Middle Eastern music, which lead to experimentations in fusing those genres with modal jazz and then later rock.

I studied Vocal Performance, and Contemporary Writing and Production, and I have over a decade of experience in teaching, and performing, so I look forward to working with you to develop your voice, piano, and composing/arranging skills!

Cur
rently I teach from my home studio in Boston, and I'm also available to come to your location.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Graduate with a Music Composition degree and Piano Performance focus from Samford University. Soon to pursue my Masters at the Longy School of Music at Bard College in the Fall of 2017. Currently living in Frederick, Maryland. Experience teaching students from age 6 to 14 of both beginner/intermediate level. From a pedagogical standpoint I believe equally in students loving the music and product they are creating as well as fundamentally understanding the theory, technique, and practice method conducive to efficient and fast learning. I am also very open to teaching students about writing music and letting them use the full potential of their creative abilities. Of course, each student is different so lessons are individually tailored to meet students where they are and how they wish to progress. Undoubtedly there is also such importance in creating an environment that allows students to grow a love for music, feel comfortable learning at their own pace, express themselves through the

About Maggie
I am a graduate of Samford University with a degree in Music Composition and Piano Performance. I will be continuing my education by pursuing my Master in Composition at the Longy School of Music at Bard. I have studied classical piano and composition for 9 years and actively study, perform, and write classical and contemporary music. I was a 3 year member of an internationally acclaimed A Cappella vocal ensemble. This past year we toured the Baltics and received the top honors Grand Prix award - as well as 5 others - in Lithuania. I have written music for short film, have had my classical work performed by groups such as Sybarite 5, The Amernet String Quartet, and numerous professional music faculty and students. I have had my own personal songs (singer/songwriter) played by radio stations from Maryland to New York, and was a guest artis
t on WTMD's Baltimore Hit Parade in 2015 - performing and getting to talk about my and other music as well. I am also currently in a popular electronic music duo called the Halter Kids, based out of Birmingham, Alabama.

I firmly believe in fostering an intrinsic love and passion for music in students as well as teaching them the fundamental skills that will allow them to progress effficiently and quickly. In studying both Piano and Composition, students will have the benefit of receiving lessons structured not only around keyboard pedagogy but how to reach their full creative potential in writing as well.

Each students is different and it is important to meet them where they are and tailor the lessons in a fashion that is best for them. That could look like lessons focused on classical music technique and repertoire, practice methods, sight reading, or music theory. Or more contemporary methods such as reading from lead sheets, more improvisatory exercises, ear training, and writing music. Whatever fits the student best is the quickest path to getting them to understand and love this art.

I am open to working with students of all ages, experience, and goals. I am a musician of Classical Performance, Composition, Jazz, Songwriting and Singing, but regardless of the genre am extremely passionate about teaching students to find their own path and voice as a musician!

Interested in composing and improvising music? Recent New England Conservatory graduate has a unique training in Composition, Jazz Piano, and Music Theory. This is coupled with real world professional experience including his time playing with main stage entertainment, accompanying broadway style singers, and performing nightly solo lounge piano throughout Alaska, Canada, and the Caribbean. His curriculum nurtures the dialectic between love, passion, and excitement being the forefront of musical studies, and a stern understanding of the practical necessities required if a student wishes to take the pursuit to a conservatory and/or professional level. This includes studies in technique relevant to their specific discipline, music theory, ear training, and most importantly listening assignments that broaden the student’s musical palate. All ages and levels welcome.

About Jeff
Boston-based composer and jazz pianist Jeffrey earned his Bachelor of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he studied with Frank Carlberg, Anthony Coleman, Kati Agocs, Bert van Herck, and John Malia. An experienced and devoted teacher of piano and composition, he has a particular interest in training students in the skills of improvisation, composition, and music theory.

At NEC, Jeff wrote a number of original compositions, all performed by the NEC Jazz Composers’ Workshop Orchestra under Jeff’s direction. After three years at NEC, he took a leave of absence in order to research different tuning systems and gain a better conceptual understanding of harmony. During this time, he worked as a showband pianist with Norwegian Cruise Lines and traveled throughout the East Caribbean, West Caribbean, the Ca
nadian Maritimes, and Alaska, playing jazz sets and accompanying cabaret singers and other guest entertainers on the mainstage. While aboard ship, Jeff devoted his free time to his own musical development and composition, culminating in the work All the Anthills, an etude for solo violin in 5-limit extended just intonation. (This piece was later premiered by violinist Isabella Costanza and was the subject of Jeff’s Capstone project for his Theory Minor at NEC.)

Jeff’s teaching career began coaching musical theater students at the Theater Arts Workshop in his native Westchester County, New York. While still in his early teens, Jeff maintained a busy performing schedule, participating in and having works performed by ensembles such as the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Jazz Big Band and Small Jazz Ensemble and the InterSchool Orchestras of New York Symphony. He was concurrently selected to conduct a six week internship directing the school bands in his own elementary and middle schools. During the summers, he worked as a counselor at summer music festivals such as the New York State Summer Music Festival and French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts. During his time at NEC, Jeff completed another semester-long teaching internship, which included mentoring a college student at Emmanuel College in music reading skills, piano, and music theory. Since his recent graduation from NEC in May 2018, he has kickstarted a private music teaching studio in a pursuit to give back to the musical community from which he has learned so much.

My lessons will be personally tailored to your abilities and desires. If you are looking to learn a certain type of music, I will work with you to learn the style, technique and feel of that style. It is important that you are enjoying the music you are learning. It is about you and what you love!

I am trained in Classical, Jazz, musical theatre, and pop as well. I also am a vocalist and am happy to work with you on playing and singing while accompanying yourself. I can also teach you to sight read!

About Anastasia
Hello! My name is Anastasia, and I love music, especially piano and voice! I've been playing since I was 3, when I first begged my mom to let me take lessons. Music has been a part of my life forever. I have a CT Music Education Certification and a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Connecticut College. There, I focused on piano, organ and harpsichord, performing my senior recital on all three instruments. I also performed in the Jazz Ensemble for all four years, while also music directing cabarets and music productions through the student run theatre group on campus, Wig and Candle. I also assistant music directed three out of four college musical productions.

In my spare time, I music direct musicals as often as I can, as well as playing pit piano in musicals in the area. I have worked with adults, professionals, and kids of all ages. I h
ave also enjoyed performing as a fifer in the Middlesex County Volunteers, traveling to Edinburgh Scotland this August to perform in the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo with the corps. I also am a composer, and actively play folk music with my fiancé. I believe that continuing one's own music education is very important, and learning new kinds of music regularly is crucial to every musician's development. My current project is being a part of the Celtic Music Ensemble at Club Passim in Harvard Sq, where my folk repertoire continues to develop. I have also attended Maine Fiddle Camp in the summer.

Since I was 18, I realized that my passion was teaching and working with kids. They are bright, interested and creative. I really enjoy seeing the process of a student's development over time, and love working with people to help them gain strength and confidence. Music is always interesting because you can always find new things to learn about; new songs, new pieces, new composers to listen to, new top hits to hear and love... it never gets old!

I can teach you how to read notes, to understand rhythms, to sight read (this means that you can sit down and read any music and play it almost perfectly on the first try!), how to accompany other musicians like vocalists or violinists, how to accompany yourself while you sing your favorite tunes, how to play jazz, folk, classical, or to help you find your style if you're not sure yet. I encourage you to ask me lots of questions!

I teach out of my cozy apartment in Arlington, and I really look forward to meeting you and helping you to become the musician you've always hoped to be.
