About Andrea W.

New York, NY
View Full Profile

I have taught basic piano for years. This is a great skill to have under your belt as a foundation for whatever musical style or instrument you decide to pursue later.
I began playing the piano at age 5, double majored in it in high school, and am forever thankful of my ability to accompany myself and learn a piece on my own. Plus, it helps you compose!

It's never to late to learn some piano, but the earlier the better is always great!

About Andrea
With a rich tone and intuitive feel, vocalist and composer Andrea W. is in high demand as both a soloist and sideman in New York City and Washington DC. Andrea is said to have “astonishing vocal range” that is “effective in conveying the emotions of a song” (Jazz Times Magazine).

Andrea completed her Masters of Music at The Manhattan School of Music in 2013. Prior to MSM, Andrea received her Bachelors of Music in Jazz Studies from Michigan State University and attended the prestigious high school at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington D.C. where she majored in classical voice and piano.

Andrea received her Masters of Music Education from Columbia Teacher's College in 2017.

Andrea released her debut album “Dhyana” in 2011. She also sings for a French Gypsy-Jazz band, a neo-rock band, and a Nigerian
afro-beat band led by former Femi Kuti drummer Tosin Aribisala. She has been featured on several albums including a recent recording with Bizzy Bone of Bone Thugs N’ Harmony.

In addition to performing, Andrea is also a passionate educator. She has run her private voice and piano studio for 10 years and also teaches at The Larchmont Music Academy, Compass Arts, and Victoria Children's Group nursery in New York.

In the fall of 2013, Andrea and her band traveled to Mumbai, India to serve as the inaugural faculty at the True School of Music for four months. Andrea served as Head of the Vocal Department. The faculty taught young adults age 17-21.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe lessons should be fun and that the most important thing about music education is passing on and encouraging a love for music. Especially with young children, I am flexible and teach a broad range of musical skills to help keep the student interested and engaged.

For both voice and piano study, I believe in finding your own sound and am willing to work with you on whatever musical style you are drawn to, but I am a big advocate of learning proper technique, regardless of the genre.

Lessons will spend time working on both technique and repertoire. Students are encouraged to bring in music that they want to learn. If a student is not sure of what song or style he/she wants to work on, I have plenty of books to choose from. We'll discover what you love together!

I look forward to making music with you!

Andrea :)

Voice:
Ages 12 and up recommended.
For younger students, we will do a more general music/singing lesson as the vocal chords are simply not fully developed yet.

Piano:
Ages 4 and up.
For younger students (ages 4-10), I recommend 1/2 hour lessons. 45 minute lessons work well for ages 10-12.
Full hour lessons are recommended for students age 12 and up

*For lessons at home lessons (your home), a piano or keyboard (3 octaves at least) is required. I use it to accompany vocal students as well.

Andrea deserves 6 stars instead of 5!
I followed singing lessons in Belgium, in Italy and had at least 7 teachers before, but only Andrea could explain me in a way I could understand how our voice works. She is patience, very well informed and trained. She looks at you as a person and adapts her teaching to your person.
I followed lessons for almost a year and if I would still live in the US, I would still continue. In that year I made an incredible improvement, for which I am very grateful. Don't miss the chance to have Andrea as a teacher!

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

I've been teaching Piano for 9 almost 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love for music! Within the first few lessons, you'll start playing simple scales and as time goes on, you'll be able to sight read like a pro. I also specialize in music ear training and vocal harmony. I love working with students of all experience levels and look forward to working with you and your child.

About Kenneth
Hi, there! My name is Kenneth and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2009 and have loved helping my students sight read, play by ear, and further their music knowledge in theory. I went to Norfolk State University and majored in Music Education. I'm a knowledgeable, caring, and disciplined musician who will have high expectations of the students I teach. With me being your child's teacher you can also look forward to me being an awesome role model for your child. I am one of the youth leaders at my church and have a few youth musicians under my tutelage there as well. I am fully aware that not every person learns the exact same way, with that being said you can rest assured that I will cater to you and your child's learning needs. I look forward to helping you and/or your child reach your goals!

Mr. Kenneth is professional, pleasant, punctual and dependable to say the least. I couldn't have prayed for a better instructor for my 9-year old son Michael (MJ). He's very patient with my son. MJ has learned quite a bit in this timeframe. When Mr. Kenneth leaves MJ is able to execute with excellence as he has been instructed. Mr. Kenneth is a true inspiration. MJ is eager to practice all he's been taught because of the cultivating environment that's been set before him. He's reading notes and more! I highly recommend Mr. Kenneth!!!

I don't think that piano is just a skill to be learned. It's something that lets you experience music in a different way, especially if you love the way that music can make you feel. I teach music in a way that is catered towards fun and expressiveness, since I am currently a music producer working towards spreading my love and passion in music.

About Kyle
Are you looking to learn piano from a friendly, music-loving teacher?

As an aspiring music producer, I have a deep understanding in song production and composition (with instruments other than just piano). I spend most of my days working on my own music, and am hoping to find some students that I can share my love of music with. I don't think practicing music should be painful or stressful, since it's ultimately the key to becoming successful as a musician in the long run. Starting early and getting the fundamentals down (theory, technique, and feel) ultimately lead you towards having a good time playing your instrument in the future.

Many individuals that I have met ended up quitting piano early due to lack of motivation and enjoyment from stressful lessons, so my ultimate goal is to ensure that you are motivated to continue learni
ng piano regardless of whether the lessons are with me, or someone else. It doesn't hurt to give it a shot, you never know what you'll be capable of!
