~~Teaching Philosophy~~

IF YOU CAN TALK YOU CAN SING and I guarantee it!!!!!

I teach beginners and advanced of all ages as well as all styles of music:

Opera - Classical - Musical Theatre - Pop - Jazz - Folk - Rock - R&B - Gospel

*I teach the freedom of the jaw, neck and shoulders to allow the breath to connect without tension allowing the production of a free vocal tone.

*Singing on the vowels with clean articulated consonants before and after the vowel is sung.

*Correct understanding and pronunciation of French, Italian, German and English languages

*Musicianship, theory, piano, all musical styles and song writing

*Performance and acting skills

*Audition techniques

*Career guidance

*Annual Student Recitals in professional New York City Venues

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons take place at my home studio. Lessons may be recorded on my professional recording equipment or you may bring your own recording devices. This is an excellent learning tool. I teach my students how to extend their range, increase breath control and the freedom of their body in order to enable a free and easy produced vocal tone. I teach song repertoire to the student's particular musical style choices. I also work with students that wish to write their own songs so that their musical ideas can be heard clearly and precisely. A guitar is available for students if they wish to use it to accompany themselves. I teach my students how to deal with performance anxiety . Students are presented in recitals twice a year and performance classes are held once a month in addition to the private lessons.

IF you can talk you can sing and I guarantee it!!!! I teach beginners to advanced of all ages.

Charles is just great....there's no way I could have found a better teacher. Not only does he know everything there is to know about music, he's interested in keeping the lessons and learning interesting and fun. You can tell he really cares about trying to help his students to both progress, learn some theory, but to have fun and build skills they'll use/enjoy for a long time. Really impressive.

For my beginning students I help get them acquainted with the piano and the music that they would like to study.
For my more advanced students I focus primarily on improvisational concepts and playing in group settings.
As with all of my students I have a strong emphasis on developing their ears and follow a sound-before-symbol approach.

Isaac is an excellent teacher and is highly recommended. His method is not centered on drills, music reading or repetition, but rather on getting an understanding of how the notes, chords work together. In so doing, the student gets a great understanding of theory and it opens the door to improvisation. In addition he's very patient with folks such as myself who don't come to class with a deep understanding of music theory.

Piano has been my source of great joy, relaxation and means to collaborate with other musicians since I was 7.

About Deirdre
Languages have always fascinated me. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and then Twi when I had a semester studying dance & music in Ghana. The other two constants have been piano and dance. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of flamenco ensnared me. For 18 years, I produced the internationally touring Dance on Camera Festival, co-produced by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. I have been published in over 15 publications. As a dancer/choreographer, I perform with my partner, flamenco & classical guitarist Paul Jared Newman.

I am all about tailoring lessons to what the student wants. I have extensive experience teaching all levels of piano. I do expect students to practice but my teaching style is very positive and encouraging. I am able to provide references from former students/employers on request. The only thing I do not teach is piano playing by ear. I believe reading music is a valuable skill and once mastered playing by ear is a piece of cake!

About Amber
Hello! My name is Amber and I can't wait to begin music lessons with you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1996 when I was 15 and have loved helping my students accomplish their goals at all levels. I have a Bachelor's degree in piano and music education, a Master's degree in Vocal Performance, and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy. I love to teach all ages and styles whether on the piano or voice. I have extensive training in opera and musical theatre. I am also a professional accompanist. I look forward to hearing from you and would love to help you reach your goals!

We will work on whatever style the student will like to learn! If they are a beginner, we will go through all of the basics slowly and very thoroughly. I like to start by having my students get familiar with the piano and exploring all of the sounds it can make. Students will learn how to identify notes on the piano and also through reading music. Lessons will always be fun and engaging!

About Matt
I attended West Chester University from 2011-2015 and graduated with my bachleor's in music education. I performed in the marching band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, jazz ensembles, various trumpet ensembles, and a brass quintet. One of my trumpet ensembles made it to the semifinals in the National Trumpet Competition. I backed up various world famous trumpet artists during the International Trumpet Guild Conference at Valley Forge in 2014 such as Bobby Shew, Randy Brecker, Tine Thing Helseth, Canadian Brass, and many others. I took lessons from Robert Skoniczin and Jean Christophe Dobrzelewski during my time at WCU.

I can teach any style that you are interested in and can take students of all ages. I believe it is important to have a good musical foundation so we will go over music theory as well in lessons. I have extensive experie
nce teaching trumpet, guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, and saxophone. We will play whichever style of music you prefer. Lessons will be fun!

New York, NY

I have been teaching professionally for 15 years. I have a specific teaching curriculum that design specifically for teach students. I believe in order to play the piano well, you need to have a good technical foundation. But all the exercises are boring, so improving by learning the music that you'd like to play is the best way to do it. That way you are motivated to practice.

I teach only classical music, and specialize in audition preparation. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time!

About Hsin-I
Are you serious about taking piano lessons? or are you looking for a piano teacher for your children? I have sent my students to top music schools here in the US including almost full-ride to The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, Mannes College and other top music colleges. My students have also been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and other major venues and they have also been invited to top international competitions around the world.

Here's a little bit about myself...
I am a professional classical concert pianist and I’ve had more than 15 years of teaching experience. I am teaching at the schools such as The New School, Queens College, and SUNY Purchase, SUNY Stony brook. I have had my debut recital at Carnegie Hall when I was 16 years old and have toured around the world including US, France, Austri
a, Italy, UK, Taiwan, and China, served as a jurist several competitions, conducted masterclasses, and have performed with Renee Fleming, Joshua Bell, and Adele.

I hadn't heard about Mr. Huang but attended one of his concerts last year and was so impressed that I asked if he would be open to taking me as a student. And he did! Technique is always an issue I need help with and he pushed me hard to get better - which to be honest is what I needed. :) He gave me a couple Chopin Etudes to work on and he taught me "how" to practice. And I don't know if this makes sense but he used the music to help solve some of my technical problems. Basically, it made those hard passages more musical and easier for me to play. I feel more confident and am really happy with how I've improved while studying with him. I also found out he's performed with Adele and Joshua Bell which is pretty cool.

I like taking the time to understand each student's goals and motivations so that I can tailor lessons specifically for them. I'm classically trained, but love playing and teaching all types of music! Whether your dream is to compose, play Chopin, or learn The Office theme song, I can help with that!

About Marlene
I'm a professional pianist with my master's degree in piano performance from NYU. I'm also one half of an acoustic duo, where I write songs, play piano, and sing.

While I specialize in classical music, I enjoy teaching many genres, including jazz, pop, rock, and country. I also have extensive training in helping pianists who have injuries, who are struggling with tension, or lack coordination in their playing. I've been working with students from age 4-99 for over five years, and have taught complete beginners as well as budding professional pianists.

Each student usually has a specific goal in mind and it's my job to get to the heart of what that goal is. I customize each lesson and give detailed guidance for at home practice so that my students are consistently working toward their goals. I believe that studying music should be a fu
n and rewarding experience no matter the age or experience level of the student!

Want your child to start getting into music and piano? My approach is that music lessons need to be fun! We will play games, jump, dance, and sing. Through all that, the students will learn piano, music theory, sight-reading, and ear training.

About Dor
Dor is an Israeli-born vocalist based in Brooklyn, New York. She began her music education at the age of five when she studied classical piano. During those years she had experimented with saxophone and guitar but soon realized that her voice is her most powerful instrument.

In 2009, she started taking classical voice lessons and joined the “Moran Singers Ensemble” (Israel). With them, she performed many high profile national and international events, and eventually managed the ensemble during her last year there. In 2014 Dor joined the prestigious “Gary Bertini Israeli Choir”, directed by Ronen Borshevsky, where she participated in several co-productions with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by legendary Zubin Metta.

In 2015 Dor moved to New York to continue her academic studies at The New school for Jazz and Contempor
ary Music, after receiving a sizeable scholarship from the school itself.

In 2016 she formed a vocal jazz quartet, a collaboration with Israeli composer Rami Bar-David.

Dor is also the leader of 'SAGE', a progressive-rock band, playing her original music.

Dor is extremely detail oriented - she will make sure that you learn about every little nuanced bit of your voice. For me personally, not only has she helped me improve my singing, but also she has helped me SPEAK better. Yes that's right - her vocal techniques has actually helped me a ton when I was interviewing for new jobs to sound more confident and composed. It's very rare that a teacher can help you learn something that is applicable beyond its original context, but Dor has done exactly that. Highly recommended!
