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

The ultimate instrument: Learn the notes, how to read, and how to play the songs you want to play. For young students, a strong foundation comes first for unlimited capabilities in the future.

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeas

Gregory is a great teacher. He makes it fun and breaks it all down really well. Greg is a real pleasure to learn with!
Gil R.
I've had just 3 lessons with Gregory and I'm making great strides thanks to his intimate knowledge of the horn. His manner of teaching is so relaxing that it helps no feel so stressed to play. I look forward to my next lesson. He drives you in a direction that works best to the student. Hes a great teacher.
Gil
I'm 58yrs old and a comeback player. I haven't played in over 40yrs. Yesterday was my 2nd class with him. And I was amazed at how my playing is already showing progress thanks to Gregory. He puts you at ease almost immediately. He is very patient and through his instruction I've gained more confidence in my playing. Gregory gets 5 stars for his demeanor, trumpet and overall music knowledge. He is the go to instructor in my opinion.

An amazing teacher that helps you progress as a performer. Piano has been such a fun instrument to play and amazing considering the techniques taught by her! Her lessons are so fun as well as educational.

Fay is such an amazing teacher! I got into Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School thanks to her. Best Teacher I've had, she helps train your voice and goes through the vocal anatomy so you understand techniques such as proper breathing, posture, coordination, grounding, acting, diction...etc. I've been her student for about a year three years now and I have to say that my voice has improved so much as a performer all thanks to her! If you get the chance, at least take a class, you will not regret it!

I love playing piano. My students begin loving it too. We both discover a beautiful amazing music world in all its facets. I help my students with that music to become an essential vital part of their soul interests and needs.
My teaching method includes: Individual approach, thorough evaluating of the students' natural music gifts and their desires and expectations from lesson. Patience, encouragement, wit, hope, and confidence.

About Anna

I hold a Master's degree in Piano Pedagogy and Music Theory and History. I established my own teaching method that is based on European classical teaching tradition. I am familiar with most of the American piano teaching methods and use their achievements in my teaching widely. Personally, I am

Anna is adept at teaching adults. My wife and I are in our late twenties with no music background at all, and she has done a great job at both introducing the theory behind the music and keeping the lessons simple enough to progress and enjoy. It is an even greater testament to her skill that she is able to teach in this way in a completely online format. Anna knows how to get the most out of her students and is extremely passionate about helping them improve, even contacting them outside of lesson time to check on their progress. We would recommend Anna to anyone!
Allyson King
We arrived to Anna after my son took piano lessons elsewhere with little progress. My son is interested in music, but lacked the confidence to push through skills he found challenging. This has changed under Anna’s direction, and our son is making excellent progress. We find Anna to be extremely knowledgeable and competent, and her passion for piano shows. Anna is patient and gentle, but she will undoubtedly push your child to do their best. She will get to know your child to determine their interests and work with them to achieve their goals. Highly recommended!
Julia
I have taken lessons with Anna since I was seven years old (currently age 18). I began knowing nothing about the piano or music theory. Neither of my parents can play the piano. I was a beginner in every sense of the word. Now, I have not only a deep love and appreciation for music, but also an advanced musical capacity and repertoire. I have played pieces from a variety of styles and time periods, from Claude Debussy to Mozart to Hadyn to jazz and contemporary. I was able to have a personal high school senior recital and share this love and talent with others. In high school, I completed a music theory and composition course with ease.

I cannot recommend Anna enough. Her dedication and patience is unparalleled and she cares so deeply for her students. She is methodical, attentive, thoughtful, and is an absolute hidden gem of a teacher. Anna opened a world of music to me and I don’t think I can ever truly express how much that means to me. Not only am I a better musician because of her, but I’m also a better person. Her attention to detail and passion have challenged the way that I approach work and hobbies beyond just music.

Anna is particularly skilled as an educator. Beyond simply giving information for students to practice or memorize, she helps them apply the concepts to real musical pieces, guiding them along the way. Her calm but advanced method of teaching helps students advance quickly through musical concepts.

Over the past eleven years, I have spent literally hundreds of hours with Anna honing my craft. If anyone has seen the extent of her talent as a teacher, I’d like to think it’s me.

Five stars out of five stars. Always.

I actually got these lessons for my Mom who is 86 yrs young. After her list lesson she called me and said she was very glad I picked Diego for her instructor, he has the patience that she'd hope for. They both sang together in Spanish it was awesome and she is very excited to continue her classes with Diego.. So I'm going to bumper her up to 45 min. Instead of 30 min on her next set of classes. Thanks Diego for helping make my Mom's dreams of playing classical guitar come true.... her daughter...Susie

How to Write Your Own Music: A Beginner’s Guide to Piano Composition 

After hearing a new piece of music, listeners often ask, “How’d you come up with that?”  However, this question often implies, “Why did you write that?”  The "why" is not answered easily. Creativity comes from a mysterious place.  Neuroscientists have shown that creative thinkers tend to be “right-brained”  processors (and synthesizers) of information. However, the impetus to compose includes a myriad of both internal and external factors, and often, these factors are elu …
