For younger students, I use the Albert Young Beginner lesson book and activity book. The lesson book teaches basic piano skills at a good pace for young beginners, and the activity book reiterates what the lesson book teaches, but in different fun ways. For older students, I use the Bastien series of Piano instruction for my piano lessons. I use the Lesson book for teaching basic playing skills, the Theory book for basic theory. In addition to this, I like to eventually include A Dozen A Day exercise books and Hannon finger exercises, scales, and arpeggios. I feel this method of teaching will lead to well-rounded, quick improvement!

My approach to teaching involves developing a comprehensive understanding of what one is doing while playing, rather than just learning a couple of songs, or relying solely on your muscle memory, you will be able to explain what you are doing from a theoretical standpoint.

Without getting too heavy with the use of technical terms, I will teach you to see the underlying threads that apply to all styles of music and encourage you to begin making these types of connections yourself.
This is an important skill to develop early so that as you progress you can begin to teach yourself develop your own unique stylistic approaches to music!

After studying at Laguardia High school for the Performing Arts, I attended McGill University in Montreal where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Jazz Piano Performance.

If you study with me you will be able to expand your knowledge of:
-Music Theory
-Harmony
-Piano technique
-Ear Training
-Sight Reading
-Composition
-Improvisation

About Chris

Born and raised in downtown Manhattan, I have studied music for over 15 years now. When I was about 8 years old I started studying classical piano, and to be perfectly honest, it was like pulling teeth to get me to play. The repetitious nature of learning classical etude after etude wore down upon

Chris is excellent

Chris is a phenomenal piano instructor! He is extremely talented and can play different kinds of music- such an inspiration. He is very patient as my daughter and myself are beginners. He immediately picked up on what kind of music my daughter is into and has her play pieces that interests her and makes her happy (which also means she will practice more) I highly recommend Chris!

Private Piano Teacher

I have taught piano since 2012. I prefer to take beginners, and I do especially well with younger students. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

About Ben

Hi, there! My name is Ben and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have taught students of all ages from 3 to adult. I have experience not just with teaching but also with writing, recording, and performing music in successful bands and on multiple instruments

Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).
Lauren
I hadn't played a musical instrument since elementary school when I started Ukulele lessons with Ben. Ben started from the beginning, answered all my questions along the way, and built upon that information in each lesson. It wasn't in a didactic way, but in a way that was really customized to fit my Ukulele lesson goals. Ben's teaching style is very flexible also. I had some Ukulele lesson books I had been gifted and we worked from those. I didn't feel that I had to buy a bunch of additional equipment, books, etc.

I recommend Ben as a music teacher. He is understanding, encouraging, and inspirational. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Ben and JC Instrumental.
Pam
Ben has been working with our daughter since January 2019, when she turned 6 1/2. He arrives at our home on time each week and he works with her at an age appropriate level. We appreciate that he recognizes the effort she puts into the weeks when she practices often and he gently makes her aware when she hasn't practiced enough. He always speaks with her in a kind way and with us in a collaborative manner. We all want her to enjoy her piano experience, and we are thankful to have found Ben just a few blocks away from our home.

Online Piano Teacher

I have taught more than 100 students from age of 3 to 65 over years of my teaching experience both privately and at schools such as Juliet Music, PianoVerse and Japanese Children's Society, Inc. I also worked as a program manager of lessons and coordinated recitals where 30 to 40 students performed on stage.

I started piano at the age of 4 but completely stopped when I was 10 due to lack of interest and patience. 6 years later, I somehow resumed piano and gradually became serious about it. As a late starter, it was not easy to acquire skills and catch up with other pianists, but I studied Classical Piano performance at Aaron Copland School of Music and graduated with departmental honor.

If you have a similar experience of quitting piano, we are a perfect match. Video lesson would be good too as long as you can read notes by yourself!

About Yusuke

If you have stopped piano at one point in your life and are thinking of starting again, I can assure you that you should! It is never too late to start. I am here to assist you to learn basics, build up skills efficiently, and play a piece you dream of!

Melissa is a great teacher for kids starting out in piano.
Thu T.
Though this is only the first piano teacher we've ever worked with, Melissa has set a very high bar. Her passion for music really shines through during her lessons. She adapts her lesson plans to my 7 year old daughter and moving at a pace that keeps her engaged. She even helps her learn some songs outside the lessons that my daughter started learning on her own! If there are any scheduling conflicts, she keeps the line of communication open and we are always able to figure it out together. We couldn't be happier. If you read through her positive reviews...they're all true! It's only been a month, but we look forward to having her around for a long time.

We love her passion for music and teaching. She came well prepare. Melissa started my daughter off on a lesson that was fun and challenging. We are excited for the next one!

"David's been teaching piano to our 10 year old son Harry for the past 3-4 years. He's done a great job keeping lessons fun, and keeping Harry engaged and making forward progress. Harry's progressed to the point where he's enjoying playing, and he practices without us asking him to. He can see for himself how much he's improved and it makes him want to keep going. All this is largely due to David's gifts as teacher. I should also mention that David has an outstanding musical knowledge and background -- he can teach rock, pop, jazz, or classical piano, and he plays jazz gigs professionally."

Joao is a patient, intuitive and adaptive teacher that provides incredible instruction, in any music genre. He honed in on our son's musical interests early on, making learning piano fun and interesting.
