Thank you for visiting my profile!

As a professional musician, I have played in various ensembles including orchestras, opera companies, wind ensembles, chamber groups, musicals and more. The Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra (BCCO), presenting 3-5 concerts a year, has been my orchestral home since 2013 and I have had the privilege of playing principal oboe with them all throughout.

As a music educator I have years of experience teaching privately and in classrooms, for individuals and groups. I craft lessons to the needs and interests of each student, to ensure they are getting the most of our time together. Many of my students enjoy, for example, video game and TV show music - so, these pieces are some of the repertoire we'll work on together. My goals as a teacher are to instill proper playing technique, guide how to sha
pe the music, establish good practice habits, and above all find ways to connect students with the music they're studying. At the end of the day, we play music because it's fun!

Degrees:
Master's in Music Performance, NYU
Bachelor's in Music Education, The College of New Jersey

*** Equipment ***
Students should own/rent their instrument, assigned methods book(s)/sheet music, reeds, reed soaking container (for oboe), a music stand, neck strap (saxes)

About Alessandro
From the age of 6, I received lessons in piano and music theory / ear training at the Brooklyn College Preparatory Center for the Performing Arts.  In the early 1990's, hearing legendary musicians on former radio station 104 WNCN made an indelible impression on me and inspired a long-term passion.  My sensibility for jazz and popular music also developed during this period, since 101.9, the "smooth jazz" station, was also listened to at home.  I accompanied the Stuyvesant High School choir until my graduation in 2000.   In January of that year, I performed the third movement of Sergei Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto with the school's symphony orchestra.  The then-president of the Stuyvesant Parents Association praised the "extraordinary performance" in an issue of the PA newsletter.  Starting in August 2000, I attended Columbia Univer
sity where I continued my piano lessons as a student in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.  Wishing to fully commit myself to music through the piano, I transferred to Manhattan School of Music in September 2002. There, I studied classical piano performance with Donn-Alexander Feder (interesting name, no?) and Arkady Aronov. 

I have taught beginner and intermediate level private piano lessons to adults and children since January 2009.  Throughout January 2010, I accompanied a student production of the musical _You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown_ at The Women's Leadership School of Astoria, Queens.   In May of that year, I worked with Jermaine Lewis on a concert of his musical, _Spiritual Heritage_, staged at Mt. Hermon Baptist Church, Bronx.  These collaborations developed my feel for popular music (including improvisation,) which I enjoy conveying to students who prefer to learn piano through that style.  My appreciation of contemporary music has also benefited through my activities as music transcriber (someone who notates music on paper or computer by ear) for the lead singer of 3D2, a contemporary pop group that has performed at Madison Square Garden as well as international venues. 

*** Lesson Details ***
I adapt my teaching to how you learn and your aspirations, whether the direct goal is to delve into the world of piano playing, an art that nurtures emotional awareness and self-discipline, channel your favorite artists from the keys, or learn to listen inwardly - to your own music. I am a patient teacher who believes that you can succeed when the instructor is passionate about the subject (I am!) New musical and technical concepts are best introduced when you are ready to understand them.  Moreover, music and technique are two integrated aspects of the same picture - even when practicing a passage to develop efficiency of the physical gesture required, music is still being created!

Once I have gauged the development of your playing (from absolute beginner to anything beyond,) we would work on pieces and techniques that gradually take you to the next "stage of development."  I use quotation marks because musical growth is really a continuous process with no actual discreet stages. "Level" is merely an idea that helps teachers hone the content and delivery of their instruction.  In addition, I am flexible when it comes to following the sequence of pieces in repertoire guides.  In the order they appear, they don't always support the student's growth.  Lessons include theory concepts as a way to aid your aural understanding.  I can locate pieces of your choosing, and, if helpful, teach them in a more manageable (but still musically interesting) format.  Learning preferred music by ear is also a possibility.

I encourage regular practicing each week, while helping you strive for a balance between reviewing what was covered from one lesson to the next and your other important commitments.  In this manner, I hope to respect both the lesson time and you as a whole person.

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would provide music lesson books, other sheet music, recommendations for sheet music purchase. I would expect my student to provide a piano or digital keyboard with touch-induced volume control.

*** Specialties ***
I am actively experienced guiding beginner level to late intermediate students. I will guide you through the most sensible steps (for you) to cultivate agility at the piano, your ear and its discerning power, and unblocked musical expression. Connecting to your passion is one of the keys to a healthy and low-pressure learning experience. Our educational system would be better off if more practitioners of the art of teaching knew how to respond to the way our brains and minds learn naturally and efficiently - not by negative stress, like anxiety over the quality of a result, but through kind encouragement, patience, and the opportunity for open communication between student and teacher.

In teaching and performance, I have absorbed styles from classical, popular, and Broadway music. A vast repertoire is available for students at various places in their development. My interest in improvisation, and an ear sensitive to nuance have enhanced my feel for pop styles. I love music with a message that begs to be encountered, uplifting or not so uplifting - as long as it expresses anything essential from the heart of our common humanity. My experience as a teacher and pianist has shown me the scope of music that fits this description, covering at least jazz, classical, contemporary pop, r&b, and world music. For example, a current student worked with me on _Sweet Dreams_ by Beyonce, and _Together Again_ by Jackson, both which imparted looseness and rhythmic discernment to his playing. I've alternated our exploration of Top-40 songs with Bach 4-part chorales, which build his sense of fingering and harmonic motion.

Alessandro is a great teacher and very thorough. He sincerely loves music and is very well rounded in his appreciation. He is not only a master pianist, but also a vocal coach and well versed organist. I myself went to four years of music school and can still learn so much from this Manhattan school of music alumni. I play live constantly and I use Alessandro to fine my set and craft. I plan on studying with Alessandro for many years to come. Highly recommended. Specifically i asked him to help with fingering, which he has a masters approach along with sight reading and rhythm.

A wonderful, knowledgeable and above all patient teacher

I would wholeheartedly recommend Alessandro to any adult beginner student like myself without a doubt. He is so patient with his students, some times I think I would have killed myself if I were the teacher with all the mistakes and the lack of preparation but he is always encouraging, coming up with practice advise and tips and tricks that only the masters know. He is very knowledgeable, me being a physicist always throwing at him all shorts of odd questions about the structure of music and he always has good answers. Most teachers rarely know these details and they don't care to spend the time researching but due to his years of musical studies he knows it all. He is also very flexible, during our lessons my interest has shifted from pure piano lessons to music theory and the study of harmony. Alessandro devised a study plan and he prepared lectures starting from scratch. He is very polite and accommodating to my demanding schedule and that has worked great for me. I really recommend Alessandro to any adults who want to start learning music, it is never too late, trust me, as long as you choose the right teacher!

About Dan
-Guitarist, songwriter, teacher, band-leader, all around musician, writer, photographer....been playing music for over 25 years and teaching for over 11 years. - Highlights include performances at "The House of Blues" in New Orleans and The Fox Theater in Boulder, Colorado opening up for national acts. (Jerry Garcia Band, Keller Wiiiams) -Taught numerous private and group lessons over the years. - Involved with music summer camps and guitar seminars for children. - Began studying guitar with Jeff Tillman (Westchester, NY) who has played in various jazz bands with people like Bucky Pizzarelli. (famous jazz guitarist) -I am currently listening to artists like Ray Lamontagne, David Gray, Galactic and Medeski Martin and Wood. -Keep your mind open to all kinds of music!  Lots of improvising on it for those of you interested in learning more ab
out soloing!

 Here's my full bio! In the past, Dan toured with The Boulevards based out of New Orleans, Louisiana. He spent about 7 years in Colorado in the 90's absorbing the music scene in Boulder and working the clubs in Denver. He first landed out west moving to Boulder, Colorado after he graduated college in 1994. Here, he met a lot of great musicians and worked with Samples producer Walt Beery at a local music store where guys like Big Head Todd and other popular Colorado musicians would stop in. He once played a gig up in Nederland, Colorado with Dave Watts (The Motet) and Erik Deutsch (Charlie Hunter Trio) among others and although got a little lost on the jazz changes, he hung in there. Now, in 2014, Dan would be more than ready to tackle that gig! For you aspiring musicians, that's what time, performance and practice will eventually do...Anyway, there was (and still is) a great music vibe in Boulder however, Dan wanted a change and moved to Denver in 1998. At the time, The Boulevards were a hard working swing and blues band playing all over the state and touring when they could. At this point, Dan was really digging into the life of a working musician, sweating it out at the clubs and eagerly anticipating the next one. (not too different from today) The Boulevards played multiple venues in New Orleans during several Jazz Fest's and Mardi Gras. Pierre Masperos, Bombay Club, Vic's Kangaroo Cafe and The Dream Palace were some of the venues, although a few no longer exist. Those were important musical experiences for Dan shaping what would be, his own funky style. After The Boulevards, he formed his own band called Rare Form who were based in Denver. He also recorded an all original cd recruiting some of Denver's finest session players. Dave Cieri the keyboardist for the popular jam band (at the time) Chief Broom did some excellent keyboard work on the album. The power trio was an all original project with LA studio musician Beto Hale on drums and Denver's own Steve Morrow on bass. That was a hot trio however, Dan was frustrated living in Denver and missed the big city. A recording at the Soiled Dove in downtown Denver was the band's highlight with "A Groove" recorded at that point. In 2001, he relocated to Long Beach, New York which had always been close to his heart and continued writing and recording music. Now, reflecting on his current New York band The DF Project, "At first the band was a trio and then a five piece. We had a keyboardist and then we didn't. That's how band's go. People come and go sometimes. Recorded at a recent performance in Manhattan at The Underscore, are two new tunes on the page. They are "Warning Sign" and a funky one called "New Orleans". Several years ago, he spent some time in the studio rehearsing with former Jason Bonham Band guitarist Tony Catania. That band never took off.. oh well they would of been hot! He's also done gigs with some of the areas finest musician's including George Panos from the popular band Mystic and Manny Focarazzo who currently plays keyboards for Alan Parson's Project. He's also jammed with Primo guitarist Dean Brown who plays with Stanley Clarke's band among others. He also has several other projects in the works he hopes to perform with in 2009. In 2005, he wanted a break from music and began painting. Some examples of his work (photography included) can be viewed under "pics" or on the picture collage. In 2007, Dan performed over 130 gigs in the New York City and Long Island area as both a solo artist and with several bands. The challenge of performing for roughly two decades now has proven positive with gigs under his belt at The Knitting Factory in Manhattan, Kenny's Castaway's (didn't Bruce play there?), The Fox Theatre in Boulder, and The House of Blues in New Orleans to name a few. Dan has opened up for such artists as Keller Williams, Jerry Garcia Band w/Melvin Seals and Jumpin' Johnny Sansone, a New Orleans blues musician. He also placed second in the LIBS solo competition in 2007. Dan has recorded over the years with a number of independent artist's. The new lineup for 2014 is exciting! With Jon Gray, Chris Gardner and William Johnson Jr now making up the band the sound is right where Dan wants it! "I'm glad we have a keyboard involved..."

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching is like anything else, you need to put in the time in order to become better at it.
There is a certain method or art in teaching that through time, develops as you work at it.
My attitude is this: each person deserves a custom-designed method for their individual needs.

Some people start out on their instrument knowing absolutely nothing about music.
Others can remember things like sight reading or tempo from classes taken during their school years.
These variables need to be recognized and a student needs to be developed using their strengths.
I try and keep my lessons informative and flowing smoothly.

I keep in mind there are a lot of instructional videos floating around on the internet. I have seen some of them and there are certain benefits in watching these videos.
However, I firmly believe nothing takes the place of a good lesson one on one.

Not only does it personalize the learning process, but it makes it more fun and more hands on. Sometimes, in order to keep my lessons productive, I pretend I am videotaping myself.
This way, I concentrate on spending my time wisely and getting my information across as clearly and concisely as possible.

I also concentrate on keeping the lesson fun and interesting in order to stimulate the student to want to come back for the next one.
I teach all styles, jazz, blues, rock, country, classical so depending on your goals, we can customize the
lesson to what you want to achieve! (and have fun doing it too!!)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Line 6 Guitar Amp, Fender Blues Junior III Guitar Amp. Hartke Bass Amp, Yamaha E403 Keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For guitar students I expect them to bring their

own instrument. I can lend out a guitar or a bass temporarily. You

can always rent an instrument for our lesson if you don't want to

buy one!

About Ari
My name is Ari Fiekowsky, I'm 22 years old.

Currently I'm studying at Kean University, for a degree in Music Education K-12 with Teacher Certification.

I am a 3.8 GPA student who has been studying cello since I was 8 and piano since I was 3, and the other strings instruments since I was 15. I have always been good at all subjects, but have had a love for music. Music can benefit the brain in incredible ways, especially for children! Please ask me about these benefits and I can give you supportive academic research.

I have a permissive teaching style that is sensitive to developmental disability and mental illness, but also can be quite harrowing and strict if you have the desire to truly become a great musician. I practice all my instruments daily--I expect my students to do the same. :)

My specialties are strings, music the
ory, and piano. I'm very energetic and expect genuine effort from all my students. I try to make things fun, so I hope you try too!

About Noam
I have always been in love with music. Since I was a kid, listening to 90s Rock and Pop music, through my teenage years listening to 60s Rock, Progressive Rock and Jazz and up to today - listening and playing practically anything. The drums have always attracted me, so I started playing when I was 12 years old. The first album I've recorded with my friends came out when I was 16, and was heavily influenced by Prog Rock music. Around the same time, I started listening to Jazz which became my passion in music and life. I went on to study in an arts high-school, and later went to Berklee College of Music, from which I've graduated with a Masters degree in music performance and production and sound engineering.

I have been teaching for over 10 years now, and I am extremely passionate about it. I believe music can change lives, and instill
extremely important values. I am proud to say some of my students have already made impressive musical achievements, some have begun studying in Berklee themselves (with impressive scholarships) and all of them are having fun playing drums.

Well, there are a lot of good things to say about my time studying with Noam. He was always very versatile with teaching different genres and how to play each and every one of them (in dynamic ways, styles, independence wise and etc.) He helped me so much master my own craft. He also taught me how to read music and to think musically as a drummer and a side man, when I'm playing with a band, and even as a solo player. He would always make sure I was at my best when I showed him each new assignment that he gave me, and he always encouraged me to be at my best. He knows how to unlock potential in his students, and teach them how to build up that same potential. Even after all of this, He was always down to earth, generous, a one of kind soul and a loving teacher, and I always looked up to him and till this day, I see him as one of my mentors. I really wish I could learn more from him, if I wasn't in a far away country.
