We will work on whatever style the student will like to learn! If they are a beginner, we will go through all of the basics slowly and very thoroughly. I like to start by having my students get familiar with the piano and exploring all of the sounds it can make. Students will learn how to identify notes on the piano and also through reading music. Lessons will always be fun and engaging!

Private Piano Teacher

I specialize in working with beginning to intermediate pianists and vocalists of all ages, especially those at any level who know the style of music they want to explore and master. My passion is working with my students in ways that prepare them to pursue their musical interests armed with technique, music-reading capabilities, and what I call the "building blocks" of music: knowledge of functional music theory and how to use it.

"Music theory" can sound daunting, but in fact it is fascinating, at least the way I teach it, using analogies appropriate to the age of the student, from chords like different types of sandwiches (yum!) to chord progressions like the materials and equipment used to build a house.

I encourage my students from the start to EXPRESS themselves musically, emotionally, playfully, in ways that keep their imaginations engaged in their musical studies, rather than private lessons becoming stressful or tedious. Let's get started in my beautiful home teaching ...

About Teresa

A musician since age 4, Teresa's dad took her early passion for music seriously. So she respects the power that parents have to foster their children's musical lives! She notes the many stories she has heard over the years: "If someone had just supported my interest"... "If my teacher had listened t

A few spectacular things about Terese and music:

1. She's good on Zoom, not all teachers are. Very personable!
2. She's fun and practical. I am teaching music to children and teenagers. She knows all the tricks with these age groups, passes them on and makes it easy.
3. She's deeply rooted in music, and respects and appreciates all kinds of music.
4. Teresa is a pragmatist and realist. She helps the student exactly where his/her need is greatest. She uses our time together well.
5. She shares delightful music sheets by email. For an upcoming Halloween-themed class I'm teaching, she sent me some "scary" ghosts songs that fit the bill perfectly.

She is a good teacher! Kind, and very informative.

Teresa is an amazing music teacher! This was my first time getting singing lessons, and I was really nervous going into it, but she did such a great job at helping me feel more comfortable in the beginning. She’s so kind and she’s a great teacher too. The techniques and skills that she taught me have been extremely helpful, and she teaches them in a really easy-to-understand way. I would definitely recommend her!

I place high emphasis on music literacy and take time to help my students reach fluency when it comes to both reading and writing music. Every lesson, part of the time is spent focused on music theory to build understanding of not just piano but music itself.

Hi. My name is Oscar. I am a graduate of NYU with a MA in jazz performance, specializing in piano. I want to share my knowledge and experience with you as a professional pianist. I have studied with many great teachers, including the Grammy winning pianist Alan Broadbent, Ari Hoening and Chris Potter among others. I’m passionate about music and teaching. I have more than 10 years of experience teaching professionally at universities and music schools.

I am going to design a plan based on your interests and goals. We can work on technique, music theory, composition and learning different styles such as classical, jazz, pop ,funk, Latin, Brazil among others, to improve your rhythm skills and ear training. I want to share the gift of playing and enjoying music with my students.

Oscar was such a good instructor that I don’t think I’d ever want to be taught piano by anyone else. He gave me personal piano lessons for ~5 years. He was always patient and understanding whenever I struggled with sheet music that was trivial to him, making sure he put himself in my shoes and tried to visualizr how to best provide guidance on the process of mastering the technique.
Oscar is an expert at a variety of musical genres ranging from classical music to modern jazz. His range is so wide that once, I even asked him to help me learn a hard rock/metal tune, and despite not being familiar with the genre, he was capable of extrapolating his knowledge into understanding the sheet music and how it was meant to be played to the point where he was better than me at playing this song (even when I’d practice it daily and he was just reading it on the fly!).
Oscar was always flexible and understanding of time conflicts, even inviting me to play at his house at some points where my piano was broken and/or unavailable.
I liked Oscar as a teacher so much, that I even convinced him of giving me and my family some cooking lessons!

Private Piano Teacher

I have taught music lessons to dozens of students, from age four to forty-four, in five states over the past decade. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education, and am a card-carrying member of the American Music Teachers Association (AMTA). My method, and teaching style, is based in a strong foundation of music theory, and the big concepts. I want my students to come away from my lessons, even after only a year, with an understanding of functional harmony, and sight-reading. I am less interested in just learning by rote memorization, and want to impart to my students an internalized understanding of the music they are performing.

My method allows for pianists to quickly move into other instruments, as the concepts are universal. All that being said, I do also take a keen interest in piano technique and traditional pedagogy. If you are interested in learning to read, write, and think in music, I am the teacher for you.

About Michael

I began singing in school choirs and playing piano when I was still in elemetary school. By the time I graduated high school, I was teaching lessons and hosting jam-sessions for friends and classmates. I played for tips in local coffee-houses and taprooms, as well as accompanying my high-school's ja
