I graduated from NYU in 2005 with a degree in theory and composition (after completing 2 years as a jazz performance major). I played in the rock bands Arpline and The Kiss Off and recorded for Universal Records with the super group Pure Love. I currently record and perform under the monikers Aeolian, Negation, Afterworldsmen, Sandglass and Marlowe Dies as well as performing live with the post-punk band Cloak.
I've been teaching both piano and music theory lessons since 2006 and have had great success with students, several of which I have forged mentor-student relationships with. With my vast knowledge of esoteric and popular music genres (I'm comfortable with folk, death metal, modern jazz, indie rock, hip-hop... well, you get the point. I'm a
I'm currently attending Hunter college to get a Master's degree in Music Education (K-12).
*** Lesson Details ***
In the past I've tailored lessons based on the specific needs of my students.
For example: someone who can read music based on childhood experience, but is struggling to regain confidence, could use technical exercises, piece-learning w/ structure and theory insights, as well as genre work outside their comfort zone. For a total beginner, reading music might be a long haul; so strategies for learning simple tunes and more general theory insights are a must.
Curriculum I commonly use for piano/theory includes, Hannon, easier Bach repertoire, Beethoven/Mozart/Chopin/etc,, The Jazz Piano book, Tonal Harmony, This is Your Brain on Music. Because of my extensive relationship with a wealth of texts, I never just rest on my laurels and will find the right material for you (even if that means printing or e-mailing pages from my own collection)
I'm fairly laid back compared to many teachers, but as a forward thinking, well-rounded musician (music is my life) I will revel in pushing students to max out their potential, no matter what their experience level.
*** Studio Equipment ***
High-end digital stage piano, midi keyboards, music software, guitars, sax, trumpet, snare drum, small studio set-up (microphone, interface, etc).
*** Specialties ***
Very adept at explaining music theory and the dissemination of practical information into piano lessons. The solo piano repertoire from the 18th through late 20th century is another specialty. The students I've had most success with range from absolute beginners to advanced professionals, but all seem to have a broad range of music interests and curiosity for improvement.

Oliver has helped me not only understand theory, which helps with composing music, but also how to read and play sheet music. Like anything, you only get better with practice, but having a great teacher to guide you along the way makes all the difference.
I would recommend Oliver to any individual seeking to enhance his/her ability to play, read and/or write music, whether you are a beginner or an advanced musician.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Piano from Canada, a Master's Degree from the Guildhall School in London, UK, and a Doctoral Degree from the Juilliard School. I currently teach university students at SUNY Binghamton in upstate NY.
Since I am classically trained, classical music is my specialty, but I can teach jazz and contemporary repertoire as well. You will be hard pressed to find a more experienced and highly-trained pianist!
Music and learning music should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience, an
I am able to teach in my own studio, or travel to your home provided it is reasonable distance. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I've been teaching guitar to people from five years old to people in their mid fifties for some time now and I can teach many different styles including rock, blues, country and pop. My teaching method is to provide basic theory and technique while helping the student learn what they specifically want to learn.
I have been tutoring students for almost ten years now in subjects including, but not limited to:
-Common Core test prep
-SAT/ACT test prep
-AP subject tutoring
-All subject tutoring from 3rd grade to 10th grade
-any many more subject.
I've worked with children who have fallen behind in class, children with learning or attention deficits, students who want to improve already good grades, or students who just want to brush up for a test. I can adjust my approach depending on what is needed.

Shelley is currently composing globally-inspired works for her next album, to be released with an accompanying book of her travel photography and poetry. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
“As exhilarating to listen to as it is a towering display of vocal prowess. Shelley has such vast range, formidable technique and minutely nuanced command of microtones that she can do it all. The result is rapture that sometime borders on terror...One of the half-dozen best albums of 2016.” -New York Music Daily
I'm an award-winning world class touring/recording drummer and educator. I've lead drum & rhythm masterclasses across the US & Canada, as well as many other countries (Panama, Colombia, Costa Rica, West Africa, and more...) to students of ALL levels. After graduating from Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship in 2013, I went to Senegal, West Africa, to study the drumming language of one of the oldest drum cultures and perform with my mentors.
My goal is to bring each drummer I teach to their fullest potential, teaching drum technique, rudiments, coordination, independence, how to find the "pocket" and make the grooves feel GOOD so you get hired again and again
I am well versed in Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, Funk, Rock, Fusion, Afrobeat, Reggae, and many traditional folkloric styles from Brazil, Argentina, Cuba, Haiti, Senegal, Morocco, and more. The drum lessons are specific to each student's needs and interests, and the amount of practice material will be relative the student's level of commitment. Each student will be guided to become the best drummer they can possibly be, while having loads of fun doing it.
I'm looking forward to being your drum teacher!
