About Glafkos
I'm a professional musician and teacher with over 20 years of experience.I feel that music is a beautiful thing in our world,magical at times and can be incredibly exciting,fun and rewarding.A universal language and a powerful tool, that can help us connect with ourselves and each other.
I always enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for music with students and help them discover what it can do for them.
I strongly feel that learning music at any level should be fun,and that the process of learning is most important and essentially the same as the end result.

In my lessons I strive towards a balance between discipline and creativity, and look for a holistic approach to learning.I explore sight-reading,ear-training, technique,memorization,as well as improvisation which I found to be a powerful learning tool and a fun way to experience music fr
om the beginning.I encourage classical music ,improvisation techniques as well as pieces that the student may have special connections to.I've learned that in general every one learns in his or her own unique way, and I see my job as a teacher to find the best approach for each of my students and guide him or her towards what they are naturally inclined to.

About Kevin
I have been performing on stage since I was a child, training in classical voice, piano and acting. Having studied with world-class teachers and performers in these disciplines, I've learned that everyone can improve, sometimes revealing great potential. Combined with my professional experience in theater and opera, I aim to help each student experience the thrill of mastering their voice.

*** Lesson Details ***
A good voice lesson should be invigorating. Although it's important to speak about ideas, singing is physical and a singer only learns by doing. I love working on any repertoire, and won't shy away from songs outside the classical realm. My lesson format is always based on the individual student's needs; mixing what they desire with what they need.

Kevin will help you unlock the potential in your voice and get you to a place of confidence while singing

I can't recommend Kevin enough, especially for someone like me, who's returning to voice lessons after many years. Kevin has debunked the prior myths I had about the voice and singing and I now feel confident to sing after a few warm ups and an hour of being awake and talking. Kevin has really simplified the singing process for me while also teaching me techniques that keep singing challenging and invigorating. My voice is the strongest, most authentic, and most consistent its ever been and I definitely owe that to training with Kevin.

A creative, patient, and talented teacher

I started singing when I first entered college, and I fell in love with it. My only problem was that I didn't have the experience or the knowledge on how to develop my voice. I have always wanted to be on stage singing and acting in musical theatre shows, but I didn't think I had the talent for it. Kevin helped to change this for me.

Kevin took me under his wing and right away my voice began to improve. I had a richer, deeper resonance and I started to be able to find control over my voice, my flexibility and range increased, and I started to find the carefree, easy singing voice that people strive towards.

Lessons with Kevin were always enjoyable. He is one of the most supportive people I know, and he has a way of making you feel good about yourself even if your voice is cracking or being uncooperative. I remember one time, I went to sing an F above the staff and my voice just broke completely and some really terrible sound came out. All Kevin said was, "There's that frog!" and we laughed it off and continued with the lesson.

One of the best aspects of Kevin's teaching is his ability to explain concepts clearly. He provides many different viewpoints for addressing issues with the voice and can clearly articulate solutions to your specific vocal needs.

In addition to being able to teach well, Kevin is also a very talented singer. He uses a lot of vocal models in his lessons (which only enhanced his ability to communicate concepts clearly), and I was always blown a way with how rich and resonant his voice was. I envied his ability to transition smoothly throughout all the ranges of the voice.

I know that I was not Kevin's easiest student to teach, but thanks to him I now have the confidence and the skill to get up in front of people and sing my heart out, and actually sound good! Last summer I landed the role of Rolf in our community theatre production of The Sound of Music. This would not have been possible without Kevin.

I learned more in 2 years than all of my years in singing

I started taking voice lessons with Kevin when I was a Junior in college. I had been seeing a voice teacher in NYC who had worked for years with many professional singers on Broadway. So, I wasn't sure what to expect when I started working with a grad student from the school of music (which mostly focuses on classical voice). I wanted to learn about classical voice but, I mostly wanted to continue working on musical theatre songs. So, I wasn't sure how much I could learn from a grad student who was young and learning about voice himself.

Kevin exceeded my expectations. On my first day with Kevin, I was nervous because all of my voice teachers in the past had been strict and would even occasionally yell at me. So, I could never fully be comfortable at a voice lesson because I had always been afraid to make mistakes. Kevin puts you at ease right away with his friendly and bubbly demeanor. He encourages you to give it your all and applauds mistakes and cracks because it means you are trying and getting to a new place in your voice that you're not used to. Kevin wanted to work on what I wanted to work on, however, he was also able to teach me things I had never been taught before with my old teacher like newer concepts and simply how to sing with a richer voice. Kevin was able to help me with all kinds of singing as he is trained in musical theatre, classical, and opera.

I knew I could also count on Kevin because of how honest he would be with me. He would tell me his honest thoughts about my work and any shows he came to see me in. I valued Kevin's opinion because he was ALWAYS straightforward with me.

Not only was Kevin a great teacher but, he was SO supportive of me. Kevin came to my rehearsals and performances to give me tips on how I could improve my performance and coached me on characterization singing. He even agreed to meet with me outside of our normal lessons if I ever needed help with an audition piece.

I could honestly go on and on about how wonderful Kevin was and I am so sad that I can no longer have him as my voice teacher due to distance. However, the things Kevin has taught me will always stay with me and I am sure I will use everything he has taught me for years to come.

I HIGHLY recommend Kevin R. as a voice teacher. No matter what kind of singer you want to be or how experienced or trained you are Kevin will meet your personal needs to help you reach your goals. He will challenge you, motivate you, and leave you feeling proud of what you accomplished. I learned more in the two years I worked with Kevin than I did in all of my years of singing. So if you are looking for a high quality, honest, and supportive voice teacher Kevin R. is perfect for you!

About Mikal
Hello my name is Mikal K. and I have been teaching piano for over 10 years and playing for over twenty!

I believe you should choose me as your piano instructor because I am different from the rest!

I have a Master's Degree in Education and what I have learned from my own schooling is that every student is different and every student should have a voice in how they are taught.

From this idea I have multiple ways you can learn. If you want the traditional way of sight reading that won't be a problem.

If you are not comfortable with reading I can teach you music theory.

What makes me different from the rest is that I will provide multiple activities, multiple modes for learning, and not just force you to learn one way.

*** Lesson Details ***
I aim to provide a half hour to hour lesson to all my students. In eac
h lesson I will bring to your home an IPAD and a MIDI keyboard.

With my students right now I start off with Sight Reading Games on the IPAD. Students can play a game while they learn.

After Sight Reading games students will then play their sheet music. This part of the lesson can be just sheet music found from your run of the mill piano books, but also music you have created yourself.

Students can work on their own music by using the IPAD app Notion. During lessons, I have helped students create their own songs and sheet music to go along with it by using technology.

How do I help students write their own songs? I use a visual called a Chord wheel and help students masters the basics of music theory. With this students do not have to know how to read music as a pro, they will use their knowledge of scales and chord progressions to make their own music.

To conclude I try to have a lesson that is different from the rest. Not a boring one where you just play and I tell you if you played a note correctly or incorrectly. I will give you the foundation and support to make you a great piano player by using my own methods that I believe change how one approaches both piano learning and teaching.

Lesson Plan:
5-10 min....I'll start the lesson by playing sight reading games on the IPAD that are tailored to focus on the notes your are learning in your sheet music.
10-20 min...we will work on playing the song/songs you are learning (reading) to play.
10-20 min....I will work with you away from reading and infuse music theory. Here we will learn scales and chord progressions. I also use a visual that helps tremendously in accomplishing this. With this knowledge I will help you start to write your own songs. I will then use technology to put your ideas to paper so that every week you have something you have created to practice on your own.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own piano to play on, however I do provide a midi keyboard and IPAD. The IPAD also has an APP that holds all the sheet music I own.

*** Specialties ***
I have prided myself in using my education to help me tailor a specific strategy for each student I use. In my opinion every student is different and have different skills and abilities. In this sense some students like to learn how to read and are very traditional, while others like to play by ear and don't want to read at all. I have encountered all types of students and tried to make learning piano enjoyable for every one of them by using different approaches to my teaching methods. With this perspective I believe I can teach any student at any age.

About Alexandra
I received my Bachelors from UMASS Amherst in trumpet performance and music education. While attending I was trained to become an educator for K-12 grades, receiving experience as an elementary and high school assistant. I have taught private lessons for the past 6 years to all age groups. Throughout the years I have learned a lot about various teaching methods, the importance of curriculum, and how to hold a student's interest.

Recently, while attending NYU to receive my Masters in Jazz Performance, I have been teaching Undergraduate non-music major students trumpet and piano. All of these students have varied in musical expertise, interest in artists/genres, and of course personality and learning style. Through this I have gained much experience in how to teach the same concept different ways. Reading music, classical and jazz tongu
ing, phrasing, sight reading, and range are just a few concepts I focus on with students.

As a classical trumpet player, I understand the demands of becoming a soloist or orchestral member through learning the necessary repertoire and technique. As a jazz trumpet player, I am able to teach ear training, how to create lines and understand harmony, as well as the physical demands of range and articulation.

I am also able to teach piano, I have 4 years of classical piano experience. In addition to my personal studies and teaching experiences. I have taught piano to a range of age groups as well (5-25). Based on skill level, I use certain method books to include scales, chords, reading music, rhythm, and basic musicianship skills.

It would be wonderful to have you as my student, to train, work, and grow together as great musicians!

Alex is a great teacher! I took private lessons with Alex through my university for a semester, and I am thankful that I did. She helped me immensely with my form, and I also learned a great deal about jazz and jazz theory that I can use again in the future. I would definitely recommend Alex as a teacher!

I was an older student but beginner trumpet player when I first started taking lessons from Alex. I didn't have much of a musical background but her clear passion about the trumpet, and her enthusiasm, patience and encouragement as a teacher made me a fan of the trumpet as well. Her lessons were varied and tailored to fit my experience level and individual playing style which kept them interesting. By introducing different and creative ways to work on technique Alex continued to make me a better player. I would highly recommend her.

About Dr Yelena
Since 1999, I have enjoyed teaching Classical piano, chamber music, keyboard skills, music theory, music history, and writing on music. I offer lessons in English and in Russian, and welcome students of all ages and levels. I integrate the discussion of pianistic issues, such as cultivation of beautiful tone and phrasing with other disciplines, including history, theory, psychology. I seek to inspire my students to cherish Music as a vital part of their lives, which our increasingly robotized world needs more than ever!

OFFICIAL BIOGRAPHY:

Hailed for having “established herself as a very fine interpreter…” (NYCR), Yelena is highly regarded for her intellectual depth, keen musical insight, and passionate performances as both a solo lecture-performer and a chamber musician with a strong preference for unusual and innovative thematic p
rogramming.

As a winner of the Artists International Competition (2005), she performed her sold-out New York Debut recital of the Baroque Reflections program at Carnegie’s Weill Hall and was highly acclaimed for her “grand performance in a grand tradition” (NYCR).
She has been a regular guest lecture-recitalist at The Harvard Club, where she has showcased a wide array of thematic programs, such as The Bach Project, The Art of Chaconne, Humor in Music, and Music and Dance. She has given an extensive series of thematic solo and chamber music performances in tribute to birthday anniversaries of Mendelssohn, Schumann, Liszt, Alkan, C.P.E. Bach, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Busoni, Czerny, and Dvorak with recent guest performances at The Metropolitan Museum’s Balcony Bar with flutist Suzanne Buerkle and New York’s Bohemian National Hall with violinist Emilie-Anne Gendron.

She is an Adjunct Professor at Fordham University, where she instructs music history and piano, and serves as a chamber music coach. She is also on the piano faculty at the Crestwood Music Education Center in Eastchester, New York, and maintains an active private piano studio on the Upper West Side.

She is also a passionate leader and entrepreneur as the founder and the artistic director of the Grinberg Classical Salon Series – an intimate and enlightening series of Classical home salons on the Upper West Side, having presented renowned pianists such as Jerome Lowenthal, Oxana Yablonskaya, and Madeline Bruser, clarinetist Julian Milkis, Juilliard’s Professor of Music, Michael Musgrave, and NYU’s Professor of Music, Michael Beckerman.
Previously, at Juilliard, she has been a faculty member in the Piano Minor Department and taught the undergraduate course on Piano Topics. She has also coached piano-duo and chamber-music groups in Columbia University’s Music Department and was the organizer of the Barnard-Columbia-Juilliard concert series at Columbia’s Miller Theater.

Born in Moscow, Yelena began her professional piano studies at The Gnessin School of Music for Gifted Children at the age of five. As a student in the joint degree program, she graduated from Barnard College at Columbia University summa cum laude, and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa, with a major in English Literature and a minor in Philosophy. She holds both her M.Mus and DMA degrees in Piano Performance from The Juilliard School, where she studied jointly with Jerome Lowenthal and Oxana Yablonskaya, as well as privately with Richard Goode.

About Josh
Josh began studying piano at age 16, an age generally considered late for a new piano student. Almost immediately, his teachers found that he had a natural ability to play the instrument at a high level. Tereza Lee, at the time a graduate piano student at the Manhattan School of Music, was Josh’s primary piano teacher and mentor, and helped him prepare for college, university and conservatory auditions. At age 18, after playing the piano for only two years, Josh received offers of admission from six conservatory programs to study piano performance, most notably from the Manhattan School of Music and Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Josh chose to attend Carnegie Mellon, where in 2009 he was one of only three piano students to gain admission to the University’s School of Music. That same year, Josh became a Hadar Scholar, receiv
ing financial support from the Richard and Mica Hadar Foundation to pursue his undergraduate music studies.

Josh graduated from Carnegie Mellon with University and College Honors. He also received a merit scholarship to study with pianist Sandra Shen at the Brevard Music Center in Brevard, N.C., where he studied for three summers, and performed solo and collaborative piano repertoire. While there, he studied further with Indiana University Jacobs School of Music professor, pianist Norman Krieger. Josh’s teachers at Carnegie Mellon were Sergey Schepkin and Ralph Zitterbart.

Josh is currently on the faculty a school for Music and Art in Manhattan, where he teaches piano, and his private studio in West Orange, N.J, where, in addition to piano, he uses music as therapy to help students with disabilities.

Josh also offers private piano lessons. Josh reaches students in New York City, and Essex and Passaic Counties in New Jersey.

Josh is a great instructor for our daughter. He puts a tremendous amount of thought into presenting his lessons in a way she can learn and absorb them.

We have seen how learning music has had such a positive impact on her life, beyond the technical skills of playing the piano and we attribute that to Josh's patience and flexibility.

As a colleague of Josh's I've found him to be uncommonly thoughtful towards his students and about the content and direction of his lessons. He is exceptionally prepared, incisive and intelligent, a fine musician and educator, and an easy person to recommend without hesitation. I'm confident any student will gain invaluable insight under his tutelage.

About Trevor
I am a professional bassist and teacher living in Park Slope, Brooklyn. In 2017 I earned a Bachelors of Music with a concentration in Instrumental Music Education from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. I have experience teaching students from age 5 up through adulthood, and I have taught several students with special needs. I am proud to say that students of mine have won concerto competitions, earned first-degree ratings at solo and ensemble festivals, and have gone on to continue their study at the collegiate level.

As a bassist, I am fluent in Classical, Jazz, and Popular styles. Before moving to New York, I played with multiple orchestras and chamber groups around the Detroit area, including the Dearborn Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Jazz Festival Brass and Percussion Ensemble, and others. I have been fortunate to share the stag
e with the likes of Sean Jones, Joshua Redman, Jason Moran, as well as Leonard Slatkin.

I would love to get to know what you or your student's learning goals are! Please feel free to contact me at your convenience so we can start making great music!

· Upright Bass · In studio
Allow me to start by saying that I am a violist, not a bassist. I had never so much as held a bass before in my life. However, after a few months of Trevor's patient guidance, I found myself reasonably confident not only in my ability to hold a bass but also somewhat in my ability to play it whilst doing so.

Aside from his patience, I appreciated his flexibility and approachability. Of course, I did my best to practice and attend all of our lessons, but if, for some reason, I was unable to do so, he would always work something out in a fair and rational manner. Not only did I feel comfortable asking questions, but I felt encouraged to do so. His hands-on approach of not just showing or telling but both was refreshing, as was his focus on the goals of student (me, in this particular situation). If there was a particular topic I wanted to discuss - vibrato, for instance - he would incorporate it into lesson plans piece by piece as I advanced to the necessary skill level, without losing a sense of the comprehensive "big picture." At the same time, I never felt rushed or lost during lessons or while practicing; his pacing was excellent, and there is no question that he absolutely knows the instrument well.

In summation, I learned a lot in a short period with Trevor, and strongly recommend this instructor.
