Ella is a truly exceptional and magnificent teacher. I could not have asked for a better instructor, mentor, and friend. She has taught me so much in the 6 months I have been her student, and I intend to learn even more in the years to come. Ms. Yudin always encourages me to do my best, and she always has a smile on her face; you can tell she loves her job! Whenever anybody asks who taught me the art of music, I enthusiastically recommend Ella. I couldn't imagine learning from anybody else!
Tara K.
Ella is a wonderful teacher. She truly loves what she does, and it shows in the way she teaches. My daughter responds so well to her. Ella has a warm, positive approach to teaching, but is gently strict when she needs to be, and is clearly a pro at what she does. We tried a teacher before Ella, but her communication style was just not right for children. Thanks to Ella, my daughter actually enjoys playing piano, looks forward to doing her "homework," and is learning so much at the same time. I would highly recommend Ella to anyone as a piano teacher.

Hello! I've been playing both piano and violin for 19 years, and teaching for 13. I really enjoy cultivating a deep love for music in my students, and working with their specific strengths and weaknesses to find musical strategies that will work best for rapid, solid advancement in their musical journeys. I integrate music theory, technical exercises, ear training, and music history into lessons in order to build a strong, balanced musical foundation. Lessons are built around your personal interests--I'll listen to you, and take all your needs into consideration.

I highly recommend Adrianna Svitak as a piano teacher. When I met her, I had already been playing music professionally for about 30 years. I was mainly a jazz player, but I’d had some classical training. I told Adrianna some of the things that were challenging me technically and she picked a piece for me to work on that not only helped me in the areas I was struggling with, but one that was inspiring musically as well. She took the time to assess my abilities and then pointed things out that enhanced what I already knew in addition to immediately correcting bad habits I wasn’t aware of. I felt my playing improve very quickly after the first couple of lessons. She is a great and thoughtful musician who is generous with her knowledge.
Rui
Adrianna is very patient and knowledgable. She asked me about my needs and prepared the lesson material that best suit me before hand and ensured not a minute of our lesson was waisted!
Joyce
Adrianna teaches her students with enthusiasm and pays great attention to their needs and interest. She customizes her teaching to encourage her students to develop their musicality.

"I took lessons with Frannie for more than ten years, starting at age 4 in an introduction to music class at the Brooklyn Music School. Through her I found not just a great love for music but a lens through which I discovered and learned about the world. With Frannie, once a week for nearly my entire childhood, I would learn to practice and work at a piece or phrase, or to interpret and have and opinion on music I played, or to play like I mean every note, and so on endlessly. Those skills were some of the earliest and most important lessons I had about how to live and enjoy my life, and art, and how to work hard, and care about what I do for my own sake and no one else's. And I don't believe just any teacher could have done that for me. Since moving on I have often felt a different excitement and deep understanding of music than many of the peers I met who have spent far more time than me studying music.

I'm still a musician. I graduated recently from Bard College with a degree in music and have since played onstage in a very successful off-broadway musical. I've played in many orchestras including with graduate & conservatory students at Bard, with the New York Youth Symphony Orchestra, and at LaGuardia High School (formerly Music & Art). I have moved on to other instruments, and forms of music, but I credit Frances not just for showing me how much I love music but for teaching me in many ways how to enjoy and get what I want from life. I can't recommend her enough."

"My lesson with Stephanie was great! I was very nervous about how my teacher would make me feel, as I can get easily embarrassed and anxious when I’m not doing things right, and she made me feel like I was doing amazing the entire time! Giving me corrections casually and kindly! After only one lesson I have already greatly improved, and she has made the lesson plans fit my individual wants and needs! She’s absolutely fantastic!😁"

"Marc is a great teacher. Classes are always very friendly and productive. In my case, each class begins with a review of progress/practice, and ends with a meaningful and personalized homework. He is also very flexible, sometimes I had to move my classes around and he's always super responsive and understanding. I knew nothing about drums, and I am happy I decided to begin my journey to learn how to play them, with Marc as a mentor!"

How Often Should You Tune a Piano?

Wondering about the average piano tuning cost, or how often you should tune a piano? You've come to the right place! Just as you go to the doctor for check-ups from time to time, your piano needs maintenance and care throughout its life. You may notice, especially if you have a keen ear, that your piano drops in pitch particularly during the summer and winter months. This is because your piano is mostly made of wood, and your wooden soundboard will contract when the weather is drier -- or the …
