About Trina
I'm a patient, friendly, enthusiastic, highly experienced teacher. A classically-trained pianist, I started playing keyboard "by ear" from around age 2, and started piano lessons at age 6. In college, I studied piano, music theory/history, and psychology in addition to fieldwork in music therapy (which prepared me to teach students with special needs). In grad school, I specialized in classical piano and theory/ composition.
Lessons with me are personalized. However. proper technique is taught to all students. Overall, I want the love of music to be the reason my students want to practice and attend lessons. I believe the rapport between student and teacher is tantamount. I strive for my students to develop a love of music that will last a lifetime.
*I hold annual Student Piano Recitals at the end of the school year.*
NYSSMA preparat
ion is offered for all levels (1-6).

*** Studio Equipment
Piano, keyboard; den dedicated to music. Extensive musical library.

Trina approached my daughter very gracefully. My daughter has zero experience and she is very young. She still struggle with counting and some of fine motory skills, e.g. right fingers on the right keys. Trina customized the experience and kept her on the task, even my daughter was a bit stressed-out by the new experience. There is a lot of work ahead of us and with Trina's experience and patience, we hope to make slow, but solid progress.

About Aaron
I am an enthusiastic accompanist, performer, and teacher, engaged in projects ranging from Early Baroque figured bass, to 20th-century classical chamber music, to Broadway and Folk. I currently teach Dalcroze Eurhythmics classes in Manhattan, an innovative approach to classroom music education that uses movement and the body to connect what the ears hears and the mind knows. As a pianist I have performed in Switzerland, England, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are tailored to your needs, so we will discuss goals, methods, and practicing strategies to keep you excited, directed, and successful.
For beginning pianists, I use a variety of piano methods, including Faber, Bryanskaya, 4-hand repertoire, and my own materials. I also take advantage of my training in the Dalcroze Eurhythmics approac
h to music education, which focuses on gesture, improvisation, coordination, and command over the musical language.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Steinway upright, couch, and plant

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide books for the lesson, xeroxes for students, pencils, staff paper, etc. Students should buy or copy music as appropriate.

*** Specialties ***
Piano: beg to adv - prefers inter to adv

I am trained in Dalcroze Education, which is an approach to music education that uses movement to connect what the ear hears and what the mind knows. In the piano lesson, I draw from what I have developed in the classroom, including improvisation, dis-ordination, kinaesthetic awareness, and notation.

Mr. Aaron is an amazing teacher. He is knowledgeable, very patient and very helpful. After taking several lessons with Mr. Aaron, I realized playing piano is a much more delicate form of art than I had thought.

In Mr. Aaron's class, piano playing, understanding of music, music theory and the culture of music are nicely combined. I've learned playing piano before, but have never been so happy and learning so much.

I feel very lucky to learn music with Mr. Aaron.

About Marlon
While some musicians achieve their success by their talents, others, like guitarist Marlon Oliveira, earn it through their hard work, perseverance, and dedication.

Motivated by his passion to bring the wonderful music of the classical guitar to a wider audience, Oliveira has overcome many obstacles to his goals: He started the guitar at the late age of 16, significantly behind his peers in music school; he did not pass his first audition to get into music school, but changed his teacher and worked even harder to get in; and he overcame the debilitating effects of Repetitive Strain Injury that plagued him for 3 years by committing himself the study of better technique, better health, and better practice habits. Oliveira says, “The injury slowed me down a bit, but I remained persistent in my practice and my studies and I have recovered s
o that I can still play, something I am very happy about”.

Before auditioning for music school, Oliveira was enrolled at Queens College as an undeclared major. “I was scared to do music, because it seemed like such a hard living, especially when I saw many other guitarists drop out of the music program. But then I realized if I didn’t devote myself fully to the study of music, then nothing was going to happen with it, so I put everything else off to the side to pursue my degree and a life of music.”Since earning his degree in music, Oliveira continues teaching music for a living.

Since his graduation in 2011, Oliveira has performed at the International Toronto BrazilFest, at LIC Concerts, with the NYC Guitar Orchestra, and in many private events.

After one year, Marlon has been a great teacher since our first lesson and continues to be. His lessons never gets boring. He has been teaching everything I’ve always desired to learn, how to read notes interpret beats, tempo, theory, and different strumming patterns. He’s also very patient, generous, and always responds to my questions in a prompt manner, whether it is via email or text. He understands that each student has their own pace to learn guitar playing and has always been encouraging. Marlon has the skill set to teach students such as myself, who had no prior experience, To the most experienced ones. I have faith he will make anyone play a guitar like a professional. Check him out!

About Zach
Zachary began studying the double bass at the age of 6 in his home state of Massachusetts. Using gut strings and a personalized technique, Zachary has developed a conception of the double bass that is able to heighten the integrity of various musical environments. From adventurous improvised music to jazz standards to accompanying singer-songwriters in a folk setting, he is at ease in a variety of styles. Zachary can be found playing and teaching in the New York City area and currently resides in Brooklyn, NY, where he has made his home since 2012.

Zachary holds a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Bass Performance from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. His goal as an educator is to give a well rounded background, allowing the student to develop a personal sound while gaining a thorough understanding of music fundamental
s. Lessons will also cover traditional concepts of bass technique, and use established methodology (and reference recordings!) for development in addition to personalized lesson plans and excercises. For double bass Zachary teaches German bow, though regularly uses a Dragonetti baroque bow in performance.

A double bass is available for use at his home studio during lessons, a bass amp for electric, and an 88-key keyboard. Please reach out with any questions, thank you!

I have always struggled to learn Classical piano but Yuliana was able to teach me in ways that was fun and easy to understand. She genuinely cares for her students to improve, she's patient and she is always able to motivate me to try harder. Her excitement and passion in Classical piano clearly shows, and I could not have achieved what I have learned without her.
